What a small mind. Can't even appreciate a human interest story without inane comment about ceremony.

I wish George Bush would do the same, then this country might not be in the mess that it's in now.

Maybe if they feature the reservation and how bad off we live, and the poverty we suffer, then maybe, just maybe we can get them to acknowledge us again.

Was peyote ever mentioned in this article?

Maybe you should come out to the rez and find your inner self too.

This is for those Natives who are serving our country. Can you give us some direction on how to purchase a copy of this film.

Thank you Dennison Family!

My family, relatives and friends will gather around the television from the land of the White Mountain Apaches and cheer you all on.

You make us all proud. Hugs to you, Karl, Kyle, Devyn, Kassidy.

Debby..you really should do a better job than to write a ONE SOURCE story. Did you think to call the Dennisons or talk to them? And it's Dr. Deborah Dennison, she worked long and hard to get her degree and comes from a family who values educations. Also, the Dennisons have three children. Kyle, Kassidy...not Cassidy and another daughter named Devyn. My gosh! Get your reporting skills more polished up, you seem to be riding on your laurels...which isn't that much to be smug about as it is. The story was worth a better write up than what you produced here. Now, where did you get your college degree?

I am ready to watch this show! Being a Navajo away from the reservation gives me a lot more to appreciate our culture. Thank you Dennison family and thank you Morgan Spurlock for your show. I would also like to know how to get a copy.

Please, please, at least the word is out and we can all view the film. Living in a hogan with only kerosine lamps and no refrigeration is not an easy task. You get up early, chop wood, make coffee and frybread, and stay out of the heat.

I think this show will be good to watch.As natives we'll see what life we have here and it may not be suprising to us but to see it on national television would be a step that we are not alone out here.

It the coyote ceremony. Traditonal Navajos do not participate in NAC, that's a Great Plains Native thing.

Is not a "Great Plains" thing. As an Apache, I would like to tell you we used peyote as a medicine and if you researched "Prof Chaos" you'd see that while we didn't sit in a teepee and eat medicine, meditate, sing, reflect and pray and enjoy a spiritual gathering, we did use peyote. You aren't very knowledgeable and down right IGNORANT to suggest it's a "Great Plains" thing. Also, you are exhibiting a generalization that only non-traditional Navajos use Peyote. I can count over 200-plus Navajo inlaws who all use peyote and they are traditional Navajos and 20-plus of them can speak and write Navajo. Can you?
Don't generalize things and simplify it. It mocks the so-called education you claim to have...which I highly DOUBT!

AMEN to you, you said it all in a nutshell, Im Navajo and I go to Peyote meetings, does that make me a NON Navajo? I think not, its just like the whole Pow-wow thing, we are all one tribe people, think of it that way for a change, who cares where what came from, TRUE natives believe we are all one tribe
