4/13/2010 General and Railroad News

General News

"First off, In the United States we are suppose to have these freedoms, called freedom of Speech and Freedom of Self expression. We are also suppose to have the right to be able to have fun with mascots, and cartoons, and other images. Although I do agree people should not be allowed to misrepresent, and purposely offend other cultures, heritages, traditions, racial, ethnic, sexual, and sexual identity... But to far, I am seeing such issues being pushed so far to the extreme, that is makes no sense, and it tears apart a town that was never offending or racist, or sexist in the first place.

Now, when I went to Milton, WI .. I graduated in 1999 ...

At my graduation ceremony they retired the "redmen" name with the school superintendent. ... But what many forgot to realise is before this.. I was the last Redmen Mascot .. And would I serve as the school mascot if I found it offensive to my Lakota, Cherokee, and Irish heritage? ... No, Milton, WI primary uses of the Redmen name and mascot never once had offended me personally from my time of entering school in 1986 - graduation in 1999 ... What I did find extremely offensive, is how outsiders came into our town, and accused us of being sexist and racist.. .. I agreed Milton, WI like many had to learn how to more properly display their Native mascot.. But in the end.. yeah I was a tiny bit annoyed at things, but I found how the people from out of town, and how many Natives reacted to be even more offending than any of these mascots themselves...

I agree caution needs to be exercised when displaying, a head or a person dancing, or holding specific items...  I also agree that Native ritual should not be imitated or Native dance.. during sports events etc.. Unless the dance was taught and given permission to do use for such occasions..  However, I do not feel that Banning Mascots that Use the Head, or names like Indians or Redmen is necessarily appropriate at all either. A Town has their right to choose their own representation of their self expression. If other towns, and people do not like it.. That is fine. .. Who all agrees at all times about what is always appropriate and not? ... I do not run around trying to ban everything to me that is offensive, or offending to me.. And the world does not even want me to get into that....

But... I am for freedom of speech and expression. If a town using a Native Name or Mascot, does not with the board using it meet with the outsiders that are offended to learn what is appropriate and not appropriate of their usage I understand everyone being upset and offended. However, If we were to ban everything that offends other people.. There would be nothing left! ... Nothing left in symbolic representation allow towns their fun with their school and town spirit and pride! ....

I never was offended by the Redmen Mascot or Redmen names, I am still not offended by Milton's new Mascot which is a soaring Redtailed hawk as they call themselves Redhawks. I heard specific stories of what I said and shared were brought up at the meeting regarding this.

I wish my Native Brothers and Sisters would stop going over issues like "Native American" or "Indian" Mascots.. How about we all tackle more serious issues. If you want to go after mascots. Do not go after mascot use, Go after mascot Abuse... These types of bans and bills in my eyes are very ridiculous, We have better issues, and things we can sign into bills, and laws, and that we should be tackling.. especially at this point in time...

Instead of attacking a schools, and a towns right for their freedom to express and represent themselves..  If they misrepresent themselves why let it offend you? ... Issue a statement that they are not affliate or associated  with you, move on and be done with it.

I find it more offensive to know my biological mother was adopted off the Cherokee Rez in Oklahoma.. to a non native family, Then she ran away from their met my father and had my sister and I on the run... That part is not to bad but because my biological father got drunk and took a shot at my sister, myself, and mother in a hotel, my sister and I were placed into foster care at age two.. and every since we are placed they wanted to deny that we really had Native american heritage, and all while growing up. The US government did not want to allow my sister and I to write in that we are Irish, Dutch and "American or AmerIndian" as we used to call ourselve before "Native American" term came into play.. What offends me personally. Is I am not allowed to join my Tribe, Band, or Nation, or even legally on paper claim my Native Heritage... Because the government does not see proof or representation of blood quantum..  why go after piddly issues like Mascots, when this kind of thing is tearing the tribe, band, and nations families apart?.... I love my heritage and people..  But I do not agree with many of "Indian" activist groups .. And I have absolutely no support for a bill like this being passed at all...... We have better issues as both Native and Non Native people to fight about.. Than over how a town represents itself... or misrepresents itself for that matter.

Many people of Milton, WI will be offended I brought this up. However, out of all the issues I watched this town face. I never seen anymore more torn or broken down over the mascot issue. An issue that never had to be an issue in the first place.. Which then for its first time made me feel displaced over my Mixed Irish, Dutch, Cherokee and Lakota Heritage I felt ripped in two.. As I supported my town, but I also supported our people who did not want to be offended..But, I bet if they spent more time getting to know the people of Milton, and were at the school and sporting events.. in the end they would not have been so offended at all.

"Awesome story!.. but I admit I am jealous.. One reason I been trying to raise money to buy my Grandpas is house is not cause I just want the house, but I want to be able to hand to my parents 365,000$ dollars :) .. for the place.. and if I can not earn that much at least bank what I can earn to help pay my own bills to my parents, So they are not losing money on me, and that I am no longer dependant on them. I do not want to live on state support, or welfare, or even draining my parents of money. I have for years kept a hidden database of all the money I would love to pay back to my parents before they pass on. I would love to be successful so my 60 year old parents could retire, and enjoy their retirement, as they have given alot to myself and to the world. Even my mother who is my favorite topic to harp and rant about. She deserves a good retirement as well. :) . .. It's a dream, but I do not have the savvy and success that 9 year old has had for his sales. I congratulate him, and his family for succeeding, I still pray to find that way to suceed myself." - DNatureofDTrain
