"Such obfuscation is familiar to Indians accustomed to federal government trickery since the beginning of contact. Still, some kept the pressure on the White House, saying forcefully that the leader of the military, Obama, should apologize because the negative Geronimo association was made under his command. Fort Sill Apache Tribal Chairman Jeff Houser sent a letter dated May 3 to Obama, explaining the pain felt by many Natives as a result of the slight. “Our tribal and most Native Americans would hope that you would issue a formal apology to the Geronimo family members, the Fort Sill Apache Tribe, and to all Native Americans for this action. Right now Native American children all over this country are facing the reality of having one of their most revered figures being connected to a terrorist and a murderer of thousands of innocent Americans. Think about how they feel at this point."
"Breaking down stereotypes about Asians is key for many filmmakers, but it's not easy to get money for projects.
"Industry insiders said Asian-themed movies rarely get picked up for traditional distribution because they don't appear profitable.
"Because of this, dozens gathered for a recent forum in Manhattan sponsored by the Asian American Arts Alliance, which encouraged filmmakers to produce their own TV shows, movies and film festivals.
"'It's a challenging economic environment and sometimes the best way to make things happen is to do it yourself,' said Andrea Louie of the Asian American Arts Alliance."
