    1. Wow that is pretty awesome! I am happy that you’re writing a story about someone of Apache heritage. It is saddening how people today still generalize and are prejudiced against natives. Keep me posted on your story. 🙂

      1. I sure will. 🙂
        It was kind of cool how my character showed me his roots. His spirituality arose from his connection with the land, and since the story is set in the Rocky Mountains, it was suddenly clear what that connection was. After that, a tiny bit of research revealed the tribes that call central U.S. home.
        The speech was great by the way. A great starting point for more research.
