Back in the Dark Ages, when I was a fifth grader, my teacher Mrs. Mossbarger actually said that Custer was a hero. I spoke up and said that Sitting Bull was the real hero of the Battle Of The Little Big Horn because Sitting Bull was defending HIS land. We had never been exposed to other Native American heroes such as Crazy Horse and Chief Gall.
When I went home that afternoon I felt especially triumphant, only to be met with my mother's remonstrances: "Why are you always getting into trouble? What do you know from Indians?" I wailed, "But you told them I was RIGHT and that you AGREED with me!" She answered, "Of course I would tell THEM that you're right!"
That tells everything you need to know about my mother and loyalty.
