i appreciate that and thank you for the support. It was important to me to approach the issue of native americans (and the future cultures we'll explore) with a bit more dignity and realism. Although i know little of my ancestors, i'm only a couple generations from the Susquehannock Indians that make up my lineage and a part of me felt it a very important issue to try and get a respectful representation of the apache and other indians in our story. So, hopefully those who read the story of the native american community can see that we are striving for a less stereotyped portrayal.
so thanks, and i hope to talk to you again ... and cross my fingers that some of what we are doing makes it's way into the film.
