By Ms. Brookie M. Craig, Tsalagi, 9 June 1995. There is so little time for the fire to burn brighter...for it to sweep our turtle island consuming the evil of slavery...for that is what we are as long as our right to self determine is withheld from us...slaves.

The Pocahontas myth
By Chief Crazy Horse, 1 July 1996.
