Thread Name: BS: The Indigenous Peoples Outlook
Subject: RE: BS: The Indigenous Peoples Outlook
(LC, just a quick note in a crazy-busy week.... prompted by the thread title, and hoping you'll take it (friendly) as meant.

"The Indigenous Peoples Outlook"

No indigneous people I know hold a totally shared outlook, on anything, or think of themselves, so much anymore, as THE indigenous people.... each group may think of itself as a Nation, or a People.... but with tech communications so broad now, most of the people who consider themselves "indigenous" are aware that their nation or people are one of many, with whom they may or may not share outlook, goals, etc., and among whom there are many different situations they are facing.

LC, please know that I am SURE that none of that was on your mind when you started the thread... but it is helpful to know, sometimes, how one's words come across, emblazoned on a threadlist.)
