a good Indian stays on the reservation a better Indian leaves it

some people think that means they are better because they stopped being an Indian and left to become something else

actually it means they’re better Indians because they aren’t letting others decide who is / is not a good Indian

when others decide who is / is not an Indian they’re making “bad Indian” the default and the good Indian is the Indian who stays where they’re told

the better Indian ignores this

I am a follower of Christ and I’m off the reservation
