    I'm a Ponca here in Lincoln, Ne and every time I see a little something native-related spring up here on Elephant I just think it's cool as heck. Thanks Waylon for remembering that us still-living natives do have a role and a place in the complicated landscape of modern America.

    Best comment ever. Who arrowed this down! Tod you're right on. Hipsters, real hipsters, exist…but most of their/our habits, eco and mindful and fair-trade etc…have been imitated by Urban Outfitters etc and new hipsters don't know the diff, think it's just a style thing. Capitalism will consume anything!
