But then I've never walked a mile outside of my european-descendant shoes

I am of Native American descent "Iron Eyes Cody" Looks the part a lot better

Contrary to public belief being Native American doesn't automatically make
you any more moral or in better touch with nature than anyone else. How your
parents raise you and the decisions you make on your own is what count.
However I am still pissed about the "Trail of Tears" so lets not get into
