(scroll down for Native
American Statue and Dawes Act)
If you want to live
here, your house must be Adobe brown. SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE
WEIRDEST THING I EVER SAW ON A STATUE!!!!
THERE IS A CROSS OUT ON A
STATUE!!! WHAT DID IT SAY HERE THAT HAD TO BE REMOVED? I'M GUESSING
SOMETHING POLITICALLY INCORRECT!!! I find history to be ironic
... a pillar that honors those who fought against Indians, in a
square where dozens of Native Americans are selling art, jewelry,
and antiques that honor their culture. I wonder how many have read
the pillar in the square. All over New Mexico, you see Native
Americans who have assimilated to American culture, yet have
maintained their identity. The Dawes Act of 1887 attempted to
assimilate all Native Americans. From what I've witnessed, the Act,
and the philosophy behind it, affected people quite differently.
POTATOES ARE ALSO BROWN!
