Two wrongs don't make a right, But-

The present thread about Cub Scouts using Native American icons,
reminded me of my resent trip to New Mexico. I was made very aware of our
Native Americans' Reservation Gambling Casinos by way of full page ads in all
the news papers and magazines and giant billboards lining the highways. Most
had Native American showgirls scantly clad in feathers, beads and buckskins.
I was wondering what the people that are disturbed by the Cub Scouts
using Native American icons are saying and doing about this obvious
exploytation of Native American icons by their own people.
It seems to me that in comparison, the Native American Casinos make the
Cubs look like boy scouts ( so to speak, :-) ).
I'd like to hear some views from people in that part of the country.
