Who We Were and Still Are

Ms Carla's (Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold) article is a penetrating look at Edward Curtis' near-pioneer work and the hypocrisy that surrounded it and his life. The poignancy of this perspective is all about the sin&blood that founded the USA. It's so true that the curse of African slavery is at the heart and soul of the American consciousness and is still embedded in that heart today. Yet deep at the point of that burning dagger is the genocide, slavery, human trafficing, and destruction of Native America (the so-called American Indian). Yes White and Black and Asian and Brown Americans, there still is a Native America and it is different and its suffering is different from you. Hopefully the swamp-thing racist Trump may jar the citizenry's awareness of this. Frankly, I doubt it.
