The Voices Remain...
Congress has finally passed the Esther Martinez Native American Languages Preservation Act. The Act is named for Esther "Poe Tsawa" Martinez (Tewa), better known as Ko'o (Aunt) to her many admirers, a tireless advocate for Indian languages who died in a car crash at age 94 earlier this year. At last, the "do nothing" 109th Congress manages to actually do something.
Meanwhile, however, the taxpayer-funded war on tribal sovereignty grinds on.
