The Harvest Festival of HoCank IndiansAmerican Indians have lived in this land which they call Turtle Island for millenia .. they are one of the oldest continously existing civilizations on earth
it is 7 pm and here i am watching them listening to the hypnotic beat of their drums (it is the heartbeat, they say), how proud are these people who resist becoming American, they want to be Indians, dance and pray the way they want to.
Not a single American in sight.. the only non indian at this gathering is me, one of their doctors who has been coming once a month for years.
