What David Yeagley
(alleged Comanche) said
:“Chimpanzees were vicious, male-dominated, practically rapists, and all too willing to reap the reproductive benefits of dominance... Yes, [Jane] Goodall's work contained the requisite denigration of humanity--via the exaltation of the animal... This work pertains to the American Indian, and his way of life. It is abundantly clear that he was the "blood-thirsty," heartless savage everyone always thought he was.”
What Brent Michael Davids (Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans) said
:[T]though Indians have been sometimes on the warpath, it is not war that defines Indian culture, it is “being related” in communities of love and solidarity.
It is this relatedness that is the bond holding Indian cultures together and sustaining us throughout time. Being "related” is the reason Indians are still around—including David Yeagley himself—though he would be blind toward acknowledging that birthright with his fake warrior persona that obscures the true reason he evens exists, of course, as the born offspring of a Mexican mother.
What Marge Anderson (Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe) said
:[T]here is a fundamental difference between the way Indians and non-Indians experience the world. This difference goes all the way back to the bible, and Genesis. In Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament, God creates man in his own image. Then God says, "be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and conquer it. Be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of the heaven, and all living animals on the earth."
Masters. Conquer. Nothing, nothing could be further from the way Indian people view the world and our place in it. Here are the words of the great nineteenth century Chief Seattle: "You are a part of the earth, and the earth is a part of you. You did not weave the web of life, you are merely a strand in it. Whatever you do to the web, you do to yourself."
In our tradition, there is no mastery. There is no conquering. Instead, there is kinship among all creation--humans, animals, birds, plants, even rocks. We are all part of the sacred hoop of the world, and we must all live in harmony with each other if that hoop is to remain unbroken.
Comment: Once again, Yeagley has made a monkey of himself--in more ways than one.

Too bad, Yeagley had us going when he either was a baboon or a Rhesus Macaque. If he's now a chimp, then he also is a simp. Not that writerfella would want anyone to check, but just what is the distance between Yeagley's great toe and his second toe? Betcha dollars to donuts, those toes on his foot look like an opened pliers, with a gap of two inches at best. That makes him a EuroMan! Look at your own foot to make sure, as Native feet DO NOT HAVE A GAP BETWEEN THE GREAT TOE AND THE SECOND TOE! That's how much further advanced in evolution are the Native Americans!

POSTSCRIPTUM -- Oh, of course! Yeagley has the horn doggies for Jane Goodall! Duh!
