I didn't direct my statement at you specifically, because for all I know you could be 100% Native American. I was just making a general statement about those "plastic shamans" who co-opt Native traditions and sell spirituality to people who think they're getting the real thing. It is a real bone of contention for me, so I spoke up and posted the link to a good article which hopefully will enlighten those who do not know how offensive Native Americans find the commercialization of their traditions by non-Natives.
