Alba BS: The Jena 6 Controversy (280* d) RE: BS: The Jena 6 Controversy 21 Sep 07


Slight drift. Interesting post there Wilfried.
I saw a shocking and at the same time wonderfilled touring exhibition a number of Years ago in Glasgow Scotland.
It was about the History of the Native Americans and the impact of Settlers on their Culture and Lives.
What has remained stuck in my Memory was the very last room of the exhibition which had only two very large sepia colored photographs on opposite walls.
One was of a young Sioux Warrior hanging from a tree with 'white' men posing beneath the corpse with their rifles. The other very large photograph was of another young Sioux Warrior in full battle dress on his Horse.
The background soundtrack playing in this sad room was the very line you mention being sung over and over again.
" Land of the Free and Home of the Brave "

I have not yet arrived at my own personal opinion regarding "The Jena 6 controversy"

Best to all.
Jude
