Letters

From the week of January 4, 2001

New Times' evaluation of the exhibit was expressed this way, in the story's subhead: "'Indian School Days' revisits a past to which no native should return."

This attitude is simply another form of white paternalism. It is akin to African-American people being intimidated by other African-American people to preserve the "Black Party Line" -- that African-Americans cannot hold any other but mean-spirited Jesse Jackson liberalism.

Thanks for defending  Phoenix Indian School  James E. Porter, Sr.!!

I would like to meet you. I was an exchange student at PI from Massachusetts  and probably the first Anglo to graduate there with my friends in 1971. Best time of my life  Many of the students hold the school very dear to their hearts as I do. I still live in the Phoenix area. Please contact me if you see this    comment.

Ginger Jambora Meadows,   PI Class of 1971                                                                                                 gingercrow@yahoo.com
