because this one always bears repeating — QOTD (Sherman Alexie)

January 25th, 2011

Excerpted interview with author Sherman Alexie, from 1/5/97 issue of the New York Times Magazine:

Q: True, but you’re clearly angry, especially at whites who try to “connect” by immersing themselves in Indian culture. How would you have whites treat modern Indians?

A: No. 1, recognize that we are sovereign entities, with absolute political, social and economic rights on our land. No. 2, that’s all I care about. Other than that, leave our culture alone.
