Yipppe ka-yay! I love seeing Michael just as much as I love seeing Eddie :D I love Mike.
Come and join us.
My real focus is the younger generation of Natives, who need to look at themselves as the future leaders, to lead us to a positive place. That’s about all I do in my free time, when I’m not being a father. When I have time, or if someone really needs me, I’m available. There are conflicts now within our tribes, where the leaders are having trouble connecting with the younger generation. Our reservations are still run in an old-school manner. They are protecting themselves from outside governments, from the experiences we went through in the boarding-school era, from the past. We have to realize the younger generation has opportunities now to excel, if they can receive off- reservation assistance. There is this idea among many older leaders that if you are not going to stay on our reservation, we aren’t going to help you. I wouldn’t be who I am now if I hadn’t left the reservation. I had get out of Dodge, to pursue and prepare myself for a world I never knew existed.Adam Beach on the work he does outside of filmmaking (via nativeamericanactors)
