WHOA! Are you going to get up in front of the campfire audience and explain thi
s skit to
those who might not understand it? (Hopefully there will be a few ;-) )
I live in New Mexico, a state with a very large Native American population.
They don't talk like that, and would and should be offended by this skit.
Scouting and the Order of the Arrow have been very careful not to offend our
Native American brothers with the way we conduct ceremonies and with the
costumes we wear at OA functions. This skit could destroy those efforts.
Please don't use this skit as written, in fact, it is in poor taste and shouldn'
allowed at all.
