Draw me a map
to Euphoria Falls
In lines drawn long
with fingers on skin

Chart out its valleys
and steep elevations
The lowlands
& midlands
& highlands

Your pen is skilled,
your ink a generous flow
Each stroke marks out territories
that only you know

Your gift is cartography
and I am your paper
Make me your map
of our explorations

Oneida Nation Says ‘Redskins’ Efforts to Discredit its Leadership Will not Work
From a Press Release Last week, the Oneida Indian Nation responded to a March 16 report suggesting that Washington’s NFL team and its supporters have attempted to discredit opponents of their offensive mascot only to be told by other Native American leaders that the name should change. Ray Halbritter, Oneida Indian Nation Representative and the leader of the Change the Mascot movement, has come under personal attack for publicly urging the team to drop a name which is a dictionary-defined racial slur.

"…a name which is a dictionary-defined racial slur.” This is similar to having a team called the Darkies with a black person as the mascot. Now do you see why it’s offensive?
