Once Upon a Time
I've featured other Native American mapcards in the past, Oklahoma, Colorado and California. Such a rich history, but a history that is not very well told in most formal schooling in the US. And, often, only told as background for a larger non-native history.
Legends of the West series, has often been boiled down to just a catchy way of jumping into a new venture, or actually parachuting out of an airplane. Images of Native American people are also used as mascots for sports teams, too. Once upon a time we didn't know better, or perhaps thought such things an acceptable way of honoring a different culture. However, once upon a time is not how we should approach the future.
