So today in my first class we covered Little Big Horn, The Ghost Dance, Chief Joseph, and the Battle of Wounded Knee Creek.
Good stuff, but not as juicy as -- say -- Clelia Duel Mosher or Dr. Walter Robie.
But I digress.
Anyway, a student comes up afterwards and asks about Psy-Ops.
I'm thinking "Hmm. Pychological Operations... not really common in the 1890s, unless you count bullying natives off their land..." but I didn't say much.
And told me that he had a teacher who taught about the Psy-Ops Indians.
Oh My God. The Sioux Indians.
Please, please, please people.
If you can't PRONOUNCE the tribe, PLEASE just have the students READ that section, then go on to something you DO know.
Or at least that you can pretend to know.
Like Mary Crow Dog.
Start there and get back to me, OK?
Unless it's about PsyOps.
I'm not allowed talk about that.
