Being an American indian or whatever the fuck the P.C. TERM is today reaaly truly means nothing. I sit here in the screening of the New World, it is 7:10 and the theatre is at most a quarter full & I walked straight up to the door. There was no line. I usually come to these things and have to show up an hour in advance to get a good seat. Not today. Maybe its because the story of the discovery of the Americas has been so overdone, I mean when Disney makes a cartoon about it, you know its pretty much common knowledge.
Maybe its because there are so many nations within the Indian community. There are way more stories out there than the general public knows about, or even its own tribes knows of.
