Around the dinner table...

Response to I listen


What is spoken of around your dinner table is of no concern to we Cherokees. What you speak publicly about us and your claims of being a Cherokee are of great concern. I don't know if you watch Antiques Road Show, but I am always amazed at the "lore" that surrounds family possessions and how very often they are proven wrong. A chair, thought to be 300 years old and once belonging to some notable founding father, turns out to be only 100 and made to deceive, and the list goes on. Family legend is like the game of telephone. It goes in one way, comes out another. And honestly, are you not able to see that everything you are telling us is nothing new in the relm of wannabeism? We only have your word that you even knew your grandmother, letalone that she dipped snuff (that's laughable), braided her hair and did whatever else you expect us to believe. And typical of every other wannabe we've encountered, when confronted with our right to demand proof, you retreat into the murkey world of "Indian brotherhood" and accuse us of bigotry and hate. I'll admit it, I'm bigotted against wannabes and I hate that they (you) bastardize our culture, distort our history, make a mockery of our religions and all in the name of colonizing our identity. You chant the words "it is my right" which only reminds me of Manifest Destiny. Well how about for once we find a wannabe who thinks about OUR rights. But then, when did a white colonizer ever think of the rights of those he/she wants to vanquish?
