I love the outdoors. I'm not perfect, but have seldom ever littered outdoors.

This PSA played when I was growing up and had a lot of influence on me.

I saw this today and thought about that Indian...


On a positive note, here is what the Nez Pierce Tribe has accomplished to revive Coho Salmon populations in the Columbia River...grouphug.gif

IIRC, the dude was not even Indian. IIRC, he was of Hispanic lineage.

IAMI, I don't think I've seen this commercial, but I remember the still of the crying native. Which reminded me of the history of native tribes. I read Bury my heart at wounded knee when I was young and it had a profound affect on me.

I remember the words of Crazy Horse "Upon suffering beyond suffering: the Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world. A world filled with broken promises, selfishness and separations. A world longing for light again. I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again. In that day, there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom. I salute the light within your eyes where the whole Universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be one."

No, that was Jay Silverheels. chuckle.gif Luv that name.

It's Iron Eyes Cody. And, he is italiano!

Quote:Cody was born as Espera Oscar de Corti on April 3, 1904, in Kaplan in Vermilion Parish, in southwestern Louisiana, a second son of Antonio de Corti and his wife, Francesca Salpietra, immigrants from Sicily.

He was in Ernest Goes to Camp as well...
