"Things That Make Me Laugh
Prize-winning traditional dancers make me laugh.
White Indian experts make me laugh.
Christian Indians make me laugh.
White artists who paint Indian things better than Indians make me laugh.
Indian tacos being called a traditional food makes me laugh.
Indians who call themselves cowboys make me laugh.
Mixing Indian culture with the dominant society makes me laugh."
