I'm picking up where I left off on The Forces Collided For Johnston
Thanks to D7ana of Philly Collector for reminding us all that November
is Native American Heritage Month. So it is time to follow up on
Chief Running Bear.
When Edward Running Bear got off the phone he was a bit stunned!
Apenimon: Was that the President?
Edward: Yes it was! The issue is finally settled!
Apenimon: What did the President say?
He said it was an embarrassment that the issue was drug out so many decades!
That we were to take immediate possession of the land and that others who
were cheated out of their land would be made whole too! He has a plan and
he will be sending people to work with us on it.
The chief was till looking at the phone is disbelief.
Apenimon: So what does this mean for you and our people?
Edward: It means you get to build a longhouse,... it means
my horses will have space to roam,
....it means our people will have a community, it means
I'm moving and I have to tell my wife we are moving.
Edward: I know your coming to build the longhouse will be a big time commitment
for you. What will your wife say?
Apenimon: She is from Pennsylvania. She still has her bother and second or
third cousins there. She will say we are coming too and will want to move
her business there.
So Rae won't be the problem. What will your wife Loraine and family say?
Edward: I guess I better make that call!
