Miller Founder Advance America Indianapolis Native American conference leaves positive impression As a native of Indiana who returned home after 34 years on the East Coast, I was impressed by what I found at the recent IUPUI Native American Education Education Conference organized by Johnny Flynn. Young Pokagon Potawatomi educators Joseph Morsaw and Jason Wesaw gave a moving presentation on how and why they go into schools to make their people's history and heritage heritage come alive for non-Native non-Native non-Native students. Such conviction, dedication dedication and understanding give one hope for the future. NCAA President Myles Brand and his colleagues demonstrated sensitivity and moral purpose in explaining how they have dealt with the complicated issue of mascots and symbolism. Their presentation earned the gift of a beautiful blanket from tribal chief Brian Buchanan (Indiana (Indiana Miami) and tribal chairman chairman John Miller (Pokagon Potawatomi). Potawatomi). Robin Kills a Hundred did a fine job of organizing and em-ceeing em-ceeing em-ceeing an inspirational benefit concert. Such cooperation in the arts and on campus is good not only for the Native American population population of Indiana, but also for those of us whose ancestors arrived arrived here from elsewhere. We all gain from what we give one another. Norbert Krapf Indianapolis
