Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

The Sound of Silence

Despite heroic efforts by many tribes, Native American languages are slowly but steadily dying off. Sadly, there is nothing new about this story. Nor is there anything new about the various moronic and racist comments posted by readers at the end of the article (from the Bismark Tribune). I can find them, without exception, on every single story written about Native Americans, and they are almost always the same, almost as though copied from a script.
