My weekly column on Indianz.com, NativeTimes.com, or on Pechanga.net, is read mostly by Native Americans who know Native America and respond accordingly. But I find it terribly frustrating trying to figure out the readership on huffingtonpost.com, where my weekly column also appears. I run into a totally different kind of audience at huffington. For the most part I am dealing with ignorance, but it seems to be an ignorant audience that not only does not want to learn, but also does not give a damn about Native Americans. Now that is frustrating.
Of course, I'm doing my part by working at PECHANGA.net a couple days a week. All the news about racism against Indians is there. If only we could get everyone to peruse the site every day.
