I couldn't feel my right leg stumbled around lot house week on my right side so all that had to be recovered so what i do today as i continue that in the gym generally work out three to four days a week. I now give it a good hour. Two hours and i split it up between aerobics and weightlifting than balanced. And things like that recuperating the mind essentially what i do now is i do a lot of reading a just a ton of reading when i first started after. I had my stroke. My measured reading rate by psychometric measurements. Went all the way down to the third grade. So from dr level. The third grade and he's embarrassed morad goto librarian. I pick up a book and it was really difficult. I kept going down down down down down. Got the children's section and pick up a book. And i look at it. Kind take it and hide somewhere in a corner. But that's where i started and ever since then we've been rebuilding about two years into that recovery. One of my kids gave me a book. Was the hunger games. I have a rule at somebody gives me a book. I'll read it. I'll read it right away. I put it on the shelf for about three months anti said. I wonder if i could read this kind of intimidating. I mean demand. Here's a person's educated to the doctor degree. Having hard time reading hunger games. So i sat down and i could read. It was really fascinating. Because it's the first book in about two and a half years that i read that i could retain the story from day to day today. Used to be if i read a chapter and went chapter two.

And the other part of it whole cognitive rehabilitation in continuing to grow an act aspect has been writing so reach. I write a little bit. I think about stuff and right and that's really important too so i continue to do that. And then on the spiritual aspect. I'll read spiritual material. I think a lot of my wife and i will tend worship services but i just find that the combination of body mind spirit in more of a holistic approach. So that's basically how i take care of myself tate's well i found out about you from a listener. Who attended a podcast listening. Course that i did. And i put that as a bonus episode on my show in february and one of the attendees of class relator and said hey. I think you need to contact john. Chriswell rate person his story and at the time i read the suggestion it made it sound like a stroke happened very recently. Allie stuff was my interpretation. And so i've just finished a book. Actually and i didn't realize that you're writing this book. After all this has happened. Which is amazing so i went back up kind of going early on in your life. With your undergrad degree in business and then eventually you get a graduate degree in business and nba and then you decided h thirty seven to go to medical school. Which is incredible. Because you've let thirty seven are thinking of like mid career move amid career management position. Ask the a complete career change but you always enjoyed science. You always enjoy medicine and anatomy and you talk about that in your boat from an early age. How you were really fascinated by the sciences. Let me go back to his five years old. We'll start here and build up. Yeah yeah we'll start at birth move forward so i'm native american. My grandfather was one of the first cadre of students to attend carlisle indian school in pennsylvania. And that's the first government indian school in the united states and their goal was to quote assimilate in students into the greater european slash white culture. So he attended there when he was eighteen years old and he was placed in the second grade. I think primarily because of language issues. Everybody that went there. All the students enrolled a five year program but the kicked him out after one year. After i wrote my book was doing some other research and pull his school records from the archives and it says on their reason for discharge and there's one word and says worthless so here's my grandfather who have been sent to the only the first educational institution in america specifically to teach young indian students how to get by in an american culture has a terrible experience. Obviously he knows he's not worthless. He goes back to the reservation in oneida wisconsin. United indian reservation of course raises his family. He's a lumberjack. He's a farmer. He does whatever he can. He has a melker out that he collects milk on a horsedrawn wagon and he delivered to the dairy will. He lived with us when he was older. And he put me on his knee and sing me songs in on either language and he prayed that he'd take out a medicine bag and he he take tobacco and he rubbed the back of my hands. And he'd say an indian. These are healing hands. These are good hands and he told me before he died. He said make sure you get an education yes clamp. While here's the man who had been labeled worthless telling me the value of university of american education so of course five six years old. We were poor. We had nothing we just had enough and while live that way and following on his steps. My mother said the same thing. Johnny you have got to get an education if you want to survive. She went as far as the sixth grade. So she yes mom. I'll do it now somewhere in there. I developed a love for medicine science. And you know bugs and leaves and all the natta me. I just enjoyed it. I should be a doctor now. Nobody in my family have graduate high school long. Go to college. Most of the kids my age on the indian reservation colleges out of question. The pattern was for young men in our tribe when it got eighteen. Joined the marines or the army and they out got their education. They did their service. They came back and most of them did not do the gi bill but they did whatever they learn in service so if they're cooked. They came out and became a cook their mechanic. They did mechanic work. That was her idea of getting a higher education. I said no. Mamma wanna be a doctor. She's i don't know what to tell you. Go to your franson highschool the ones who have fathers or moms and college people college trained people. She used to say and ask them my first year in college. You had to declare what your major was pre. Med pre med advisor. He said you'll never make it. I'm gonna send you the native american adviser. My native american visor looked at my classes. I had selected. He said we indians don't do the hard sciences and he just stopped me in my tracked. I said we don't know we go and education teach. We do social work. I said well. Okay i laughed. I still kept classes science at physics chemistry and mathematics first year. Course i did. terrible job. Came close to flunk out. Only tell later did i recover that dream and say no.

They understood that these are children and anytime there was a time in the process they would stop and they would you know clear everything and then sit down with us and ask us how he wanted to proceed. And one thing i need really shout out Talking about youth is my son andrew as a senior at Uc davis in biology. And i asked him to.

Thank you for that on Go ahead you cut out but continue fun. Yeah yeah we have many more boarding schools everywhere and people have to look back and remember the relatives that went out and never came home and we have to bring them back to the place of birth.

And you are part of this youth council that that did a lot of work and realize the importance of giving this pathway to these relatives to return home in same way likely to share some of your story on on how some of this got started and your thoughts on on where we are today okay. back in twenty fifteen. When i kind of. I don't know how to get get high point. A lot of kids come out and We're really hands on with the things that were done. Like the east group it south its initial project list out teach culture and teach the lakota core values and how we can apply them everyday life so it can be intertwined with our way of life in today's world you know and so taught. Was it. It really taught us leadership roles. That's how to speak and it taught us how to go about it. Really great on a lot of the kids. I came from our leaders. Now like today there's the honoring batch of students graduated college recently and it's really great so that most of these kids who are part of that you know and now the higher education system and all this and that but the whole process of it wasn't twenty fifteen. We went to a Us conference Native americans at the white house is that the white house was supposed to back. When president obama was in the office and it was really. It was a great way for us to get out there and present the projects that were doing. We met so many native americans across the country and it was a beautiful thing and on the way home we stopped in hershey pennsylvania to do the Her strike no kabul over there park and on the way back last minute one of shop around suggested we should go through call because carlisle plays a pivotal role in who we are today. But at the time a lot of issues we had no clue what a boarding school was because a boarding school isn't talked about the history books and it's not definitely not talk about with the people who are still alive that went to boarding schools because it's traumatizing thing and it's traumatizing really hard to talk about. you know. And so we went there and they gave us a tour and the tour was a very. It was very clean very american. You couldn't tell anything happen there with how they were talking to us. Anyways after that we want to Cemetery start all these children may read all the names seen how many of them were from and so a couple of a song said a prayer and we walked away and as we were walking away. Firefly's came out of the ground and there are so many firefighters and Mondays came they gave us a sense of this spiritual higher. That you get whenever you do something in the way of life and that's how these Firefighters gave us gave a question to one of the kids that pop the question for this whole movement. And that's why don't we being on you know. No one had an answer for that so a group of when we came home we Had the Had that fire set enough of these kids have to come so we went to the council. We asked for the to speak express. How each of us out and why these kitchen come on and thankfully for us they were honest. That there on us and go of course. It took six years and a lot of obstacles. But we're happy that are tried Did all the bureaucracy for the office did all the work that they did. I really wanna you know. Think the people that believe in us 'cause when we first started this project at the get go a lot of people didn't believe in a lot of people didn't think we'd be able to do what we did and But to those that did believe in us let have back. You really want to say. Thank you to them because without them. Another sort of happened without the support that we then have You know he probably still would be worth six years ago. And so i really you know fix later when we brought them back and to see not just my trunk nation but every nation that part of it come together to help us out and being. I'm home each played a part in what they did. That really extends that really gets to my heart so much because as a lakota that word i mean look people i mean it it. It means love and offense you know we extend ourselves out and so it was really really warming to see that these for kids. Not just the council but these kids being about home from one hundred years ago this nation together and i hope that we remember that as we go forward in what we do and listen to the use and what they have to do moving forward you know sure. This is a huge listen in many things in just knowing that a lot of this game from what the you said this needs to happen. I think that's very commendable in our youth. Become with a lot of spirit and they come with a lot of good thoughts and just seeing how supporting this and what led to and christopher knowing that these relatives have returned home. What are your thoughts today. that question is very like My quickly said it's really a bittersweet feeling like. I'm really happy that these nine children from the rosewood came home because an eighteen eighties. The child chiefs here requested for the children come home and they were that paper must have been thrown away or something documents that state that the tribal leaders back at home one of them home but they never came back. You know general pratt prejudiced way so one hundred years later. I'm happy that we went there. And we listen to what they had to say. And that's bringing them home but we kind of bring all of them and so our mission is just now beginning. You know what we do. We'll be catapult for every nation comes through and hopefully one day all these boarding schools that have burial sites and graveyards can just be grass lines and all these kids can go home. You know because that's that's what every kid wants to do when scared and not in the same place they just wanna go and if we can't go home you can make sure these kids can go on. I hear you.

"So to help you with that we have called one of the country's most celebrated poets, Joy Harjo. In 2019. She was named US Poet laureate, and now she's using her platform and deep appreciation for this art. To service editor of the Norton Anthology of Native Nations, Poetry. It's called When the Light of the world was subdued. Our songs came through and she's with us now to tell us more about it. Joy Hodja. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much for speaking with us. Yeah, well, thank you so much for inviting me and native poets on your show. I do want to ask before we get into the anthology about being named US Poet laureate. I mean, you were named You had a beautiful reception at the Library of Congress welcoming you to this role where people got to hear you're beautiful work, and I believe that you are the first person from the native nations to be so honored and I recall From your investiture that there were people who had never been to Washington who came to see you installed. So in a way, that's kind of what you're doing with this anthology in a way, isn't it? You're bringing people To the limelight who have not had the opportunity to be spotlighted in this way. Yes, I think that's what's been so important about this poet laureate because basically I'm essentially a doorway. And I'm representative certainly of Native nations and of poets. And I say, Well, there's not just me. This anthology has 160 because of the page limitations. We couldn't put everybody in here that should be in here and There are many of us and we're not just poets were teachers were dancers where Were essentially we're human beings, and you would think that at this a time we would not have to say that, but we're still active. We have active living cultures and we are human beings and we write poetry. I think a lot of what you see out there as native poetry and translation that most people are aware of was not translated. You know, there's you know, there's also ethics involved, too. So There was challenging. What you do say that the English language provides access to native poetry because it does allow indigenous people to speak across tribes and to people all over the world. So with that being said, I'm going to ask you to read something. And tell us what it's about. This was written by a student at Carlisle Indian School, a school that was on industrial school. It was military style is many of the Indian schools were that was founded by Colonel Richard Henry Pratt in 18, 79 and Hiss. It was meant to be ah, tool of assimilation. He was known for his famous motto or infamous motto. I should say, Kill the Indian and save the Man. This was published in the school paper, and it was noted that it was written in 1913. And the student didn't want his name known and it's called my industrial work. At half past two in the afternoon. You can find me in the 28 room. About three or four covers deep. You turned them back and you'll find me asleep. And there I lie and patiently wait for the final exams we have in room eight. When the whistle blows at half past five.

There's a bugle call the troops fall in and the roll is called Get out in front troops all stand saluting the flag with our hats in her hand while standing in the wind. Our hair gets wavy. Just the same. We write face and march to gravy. Now, this may sound like going fishing that this is my only industrial position. That could be almost anywhere. And even now, you know who has to go to school or any young kid in one of the other things I noticed, too. I just saw another one is kissing the ope a loo.

Obviously, this collection is going to mean different things to different people. I'm guessing from people from native nations who, seeing this collection is going to be really exciting.

And still have civilizations that So it also reminds me I went to Indian school, too. It was a little different. By the time I went to Indian school, and I went to a school. That was an experiment in Indian education, where we had some of the bets, best arts classes, and even so. In the late sixties in one of my classrooms for English. Ah, we still had stows lined up against the wall with just a few generations just a few classes before a few years before students were taught the women students were taught How to clean and cook so they could clean and cook for you. Where was that in Santa Fe. And what is what? What was the notion of Did you say experimental Indian school at that time? The larger idea. Well, we were we had some of the best art teachers in the country like Alan Hauser fit shoulder oddly long a month. And and Louis Bell or major composer composed for Maria Tallchief. They were our teachers, and we also had the old system Bureau of Indian Affairs system, So I recognize we didn't have to go out like troops as this student did, where they militarized their education. But we had all of the military lingo. We had details and restriction and So that was in place. We still weren't allowed to speak our native languages and this was in the late sixties at school. And you are a member. I believe of the Moscow G Cree Nation. And the collection focuses on giving a voice to Native American poets from around the country. In fact, the poems I see a broken into different regions of the U. S from the northeast to the Plains and mountains to the Pacific. And more. Would you point out any particular stylistic difference?

"carlisle indian school" Discussed on Native Opinion Podcast an American Indian Perspective
"Take off I mean and mining amounts of people of color especially native people and this case native civil rights figure an article the US attorney argued that standing bear was neither a citizen nor a person and this this act really went to court and he had to fight to take his son's remains home to be buried with his ancestors I quote again the US Attorney General View that standing bear was neither a citizen nor a person and the such did not have standing to sue the government on the second day of that trial chief standing bear was called to testify becoming the first native American to do so he raised his right hand and through an interpreter sad and I quote my hand is not the color of yours if I pierce it I shall feel pain if you pierce your hand you also feel pain the blood that will oh for a mind will be the same color is yours the same God made us both I am a man in quote well so there was a human humanist as judge it would appear because the judge agreed ruling for the first time in us his trade that quote the end game is a person and quote and has all the rights and freedoms promised in the constitution the judge it's also ordered Cook Two free standing there in his people immediately and little a crook I'm sorry Little information on the gentle on mentioned as Crook he was army general sent to round up this group of people who wanted to take the chief son's remains back home all of this will be in the show notes in in in in the link will provide despite the landmark decision from the judge his opinion still drips with prejudice calling native Americans a week significant unlettered and generally despised race so he just blew his they the humanist Monica gave him right out the window I found in the section I found the section excuse me to be a particular interest and some knowledge I did not know about a few decades later in nineteen thirty seven the state of Nebraska sent to statues to the US Capitol each state is allowed to pick two historical figures to represent them and now National Statutory Hall and Nebraska Chose Politicians William Jennings Bryan Ann Arbor Day founder Julius Sterling Morton this provision is also why there are at least eight statues of confederates in the capital suits in recent years Nebraska lawmakers voted to replace both statues Brian was replaced by chief standing bear he's soon morton will be replaced by a statue of author Wilma Cather and she was the American novelist noted for trails of the settlers and frontier life of the American planes and they held a dentist nations ceremony for the induction of Chief Statue and Governor Pete Ricketts said that and I quote One of the most important civil rights leader in our country that almost nobody knows about is going to be inducted today and we hope to be able to correct that today until his story in quote and again there'll be an article included with Lincoln colluded with this article man having trouble today don't problem brother Yeah I mean the first thing I thought about of course was okay are people going to start complaining of the changes made right that these statues were going to be erected right to the American history well here's the thing I get a little more research and there is literally I'll site that list the statutory donations by state and it's this at the Capitol Dot Cov- affords last sites Blah Blah Blah Blah Lincoln's in the show notes which you can actually go on that site and see which states donated which statutes very cool okay we will definitely look for that but you're right how long's IT GONNA take somebody's whining about all this guy you know why is he in there and why are you taking out so and so you're just a matter of time were there was such type of reaction when they were when they started the construction on the ongoing Memorial yes same kind of thing which if there was enough doc they really should have went next to the president's had Rushmore blasphemy couple of the matter there and say bad blasphemy were so anti-american here on the show apparently gotten some feed back in that direction as well really yes but anyway I don't care because of your truth doesn't matter to me there you go sounded so I'll just I'll just leave it at that same type of people say that I don't love my country Yeah Okay that that type of thing alley yeah it it's matter of trying to understand you know a little words these are clearly people that haven't listened to more than one episode Oh and so I always that's what I always record I recommend this to people anyway if you check out our podcast anyway listen to at least five episodes at least five to get a better understanding of where the hosts physicians are on things but most people don't they listen to one they're like blasphemy there news on this on this show so what can I e yeah some people must realize that I use the acronym I won't I won't mention it it's kind of like I don't care but put the adult version on it yes well you know we we've had other people David I have to deal with sadly relevant to our position on the trump administration so You know hopefully some folks will have a a second thought it may even second look at the show but if they don't that that's fine that's their decision so it is absolutely all right moving on here this is an article that came out of the let's say inquirer dot com the before that and the title of this Article States follows the bodies of three young native American girls are returned to the Oneida reservation and a community heels the author on this was Charles Fox so I sort of sat up and took notice when I when I read this this particular Article but what what we try to convey on the show from time to time is that sometimes the events from America's tragic past can be brought to closure for some families we wouldn't define it necessarily is happiness but simply enter use some emptiness wondering perhaps a softening to sadness maybe you know this is the type of thing we always as you say Around the areas of families that are in continuous morning relevant to missing murder indigenous women right there looking foreclosure they're looking for their lost relatives the best outcome of course is that person has returned home but in other times the generational hurt goes back many many years centuries attacked so Tissa toe to some degree what am I referring to I'm I'm talking about repatriation Talking about the act of indigenous people being returned home for proper ceremonies and reburial in their their own homelands on this show if we're speaking about quote an amusing quotes a mirror his tragic past and quote in the reason I place that in quotes so to speak is a term used quite frequently by mainstream news media who apparently I have a bone to pick with this week we use it in the with respect to indigenous peoples from within the now defined borders of this country we speak of places such as the Carlisle Indian School which is the subject of this particular article in the inquirer dot com and In which Charles Fox the author chose to focus on the quote Indian Industrial School close quote which is really what it was it's actual title is in was located in Carlisle Pennsylvania commonly referred to as the Carlisle Indian school it was operated from eighteen seventy nine through nineteen eighteen and was endorsed by the federal government. Now why do I say endorsed if you put it in this context like modern day grants that are issued today by the federal and of course state governments but will stay focused on the federal government Carlisle was the first federally funded off reservation Indian Boarding School in the United States Carlisle Indian school and other similar boarding schools that followed represented an attempt by the United States government to assimilate indigenous that was issued and maybe even invented by a guy by the name of General Richard Henry Pratt a brigadier now Pratt is also most likely to some degree the father of racism in the United States as he used the word in one thousand nine hundred to describe quote racial segregation and quote an act so we'll call it ethnic minorities now he firmly believe that all ethnicities should be assimilated into white culture on a good guy so from the article Charles Fox dates the following and quoting three teenage girls died while attending Carlisle Jemima men toxin died of tuberculosis and Australia palace of pneumonia Fox continues imagine a situation of strangers walking into your parents home unannounced and uninvited and then they simply take you away and you have no idea why right now why might this happen because of a government made up of men who were not from anywhere near your home made the decision that you would be better off living in language English which is foreign to you and your told at that time that this is now your now further imagine being physically punished severely because you simply don't understand how to do something for the first time they let you know later bye thank you.
