    "Dr Brown, it is hard for us to understand why you think it is necessary for
    you to speak on our behalf, about our country, our culture, and our futures.


    The only thing We need saving from, is people who disrespect our decisions
    and want to see our people locked up in a wilderness and treated as museum
    pieces.

    We are a living people and a living culture. We have faced severe change
    over the last 200 years, and most of it has been far beyond our control. Now
    We have a chance to make decisions about our own lives and our chi|dren's
    futures.

    There are people, like you Dr Brown, who disagree with our vision for our
    future. And that's a good thing in our democratic society. But please, don't
    use us to push your view. We can speak for ourselves."

    Lol, couldnt have said it better myself.
