Just wanted to say "hi" to Sherman. We went to Gonzaga together. He was a lot of fun.
My comment: My father died about 6 years ago. I didn't know him well. When he died I found out that he was half American Indian - something his family had vigorously denied for years - to the point of putting notices in small town newspapers that our family was not related in any way to Indians who had been picked up by the cops for being drunk.
As someone who now realizes that they have Indian blood but was never raised among the "Tribe" sort of speak, does Sherman think there is anything to being Indian if you are not "culturally Indian?
