I was noticing the new timeline on Facebook. Other than putting a cool cover picture up on the page reminiscent of the Myspace era, every individual gets their own little timeline on the right hand side of the page. I have yet to spruce it up or add photos, but you get to go back to birth. You can add a baby picture there or you could use the Facebook baby icon. Your whole life and history is right there. You can add to it if you choose to do so.
I started thinking about a timeline in real life. Not just my personal timeline because if I choose, I could throw it all out there on Facebook real easy. I was thinking of the timeline of my people. A timeline of the Lakota. See, I think when people think of Indians/Native Americans, they automatically think of the wild west. They think of us as one, although there are several hundred different nations in this country. Either they think we are extinct or that we are so immersed in modern society that our way of life no longer exists.
