the influences of traditional cultural authority, but it can
destroy American Indian identity, as non-Indians
eventually claim possession of things indigenous by
their ability to define them in non-indigenous terms.”
This was a hard phrase to swallow. I am not a Native American history buff, but I am of Native American descent. My grandfather was a full blooded Creek Indian. I would argue that there is not anything we as Americans can do that will destroy the American Indian identity.

I do however agree with the 2nd part of his statement that American’s have claimed possession of things from the Native American culture and have “defined them in non-indigenous terms”.
The conclusion of the article was the most disappointing for me. He posed great questions, but for me they were left unanswered.
