A Different Perspective Regarding the Sioux Name


            I’m a member of the Missisquoi Abenaki in northern Vermont, through my grandmother, who was born in Québec. I’m also a UND graduate, class of 1980. But I don’t live in North Dakota; in fact, I’m an attorney in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. So as I’m reading the letters regarding the Fighting Sioux issue, and the opinion piece from the Fargo Forum telling everyone to put the Fighting Sioux issue to bed, I feel compelled to speak out.
