Vine Deloria, Jr. 1933-2005

A spirit dedicated to truth with a beautiful, strong voice. He was a personal inspiration and will be missed.

"Literature on Indians provides no clues to understanding the present or remembering the past. Much contemporary literature is a thinly disguised romanticism that looks at Indians as the last and best spiritual hope for a society disheartened and disorganized."
~Vine Deloria, Jr. (Standing Rock Sioux) American Indians, American Justice

Best known for "Custer Died For Your Sins"

Hi Sue
Beautiful use of technology. Interestingly enough I have never heard of Vine, but this is the second time today I heard of his death. You should recommend more readings to me on inspiration People helping First Nations cause. When you emailed the My Blog, I didn’t really understand that it was really your Blog, lol my bad.
