Harlan McKosato: Reflecting on Obama’s trip to Indian Country
Harlan McKosato ask activist and poet John Trudell for his opinion on the efforts of President Barack Obama in Indian Country:
I recently spoke with the acclaimed Native activist and poet John Trudell and asked him about his opinion of the Obama administration. “I don’t trust them. I think the whole entire political system is corrupt, whether it’s the Republicans and George W. Bush, or the Democrats and Obama. I think they all serve the corporate fate. In general, the system is filled with lies and tokenism. As Native people, we’re so far down the list because we don’t have the numbers, and the politicians just show up for photo ops.
