Where are all the Native Americans?

Gina in Fairbanks responded to my Oscar inquiry about the absent Asians with a query of her own:


"I was wondering where all the Native Americans were; you listed LOTS of Asians if you ask me. And here we are, the 1st people and known for our storytelling and dramatic ways. Plus, where would Clint Eastwood, or John Wayne be without us?"



So true, Gina. I can't name one single Native American that I saw on the Oscars. And I didn't list many Asians, either, not compared to the sea of white faces that I could have listed.

Doesn't that bite?
