Crazy White Man

Poverty hung over the Lac Orielles reservation. Sullen faces stared and children hid behind run-down shacks, at my approach. A few stood their ground and stared blankly at me and my government-issue ATV. Now past the housing area I decided to stop and noticed a lone figure walking slowly toward me. As he got closer I saw him to be a big, burly Native American.  I resisted an impulse to run. He came right up and got into my face, within a few inches, before he spoke.  “Christopher Columbus was an asshole,”  he said flatly. “He sure was,” I stammered.
