A2: Native Americans

On his blog “there is no gap,” Karl Pohrt posts the text of a talk he gave at the annual Native American Solidarity Sunday for the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation in Ann Arbor: ”I thought I’d briefly talk about Native ideas regarding where we fit into the universe. Some of these ideas are very different from our own. The Marxist anthropologist Stanley Diamond said that whenever we encounter people who do things differently than we do, it is an implicit critique of the way we do things. Diamond went on to say that the role of the engaged anthropologist is to make that critique explicit.” [Source]
