Personal Quote:

You see the one thing I've always maintained is that I'm an American Indian. I'm not a Native American. I'm not politically correct. Everyone who's born in the Western Hemisphere is a Native American. We are all Native Americans. And if you notice, I put "American" before my ethnicity. I'm not a hyphenated African-American or Irish-American or Jewish-American or Mexican-American. See more »
