Remembering the meaning of Tribalism
April 15, 2021
It was a chilly day when my daughter and I found ourselves on the road which leads to the Indian camp west of town.
It is called a survival camp for "homeless" Indians. We drove past multi-colored flags with names like Sicangu, Oglala, Ihanktowan, and Santee and pulled into a clearing where we found a number of people sitting next to a glowing fire from a huge cement fireplace.
When we walked toward them, a small woman came forward with hand out held: "anpetu waste da," she said.
