If only the folkways of First Americans had prevailed what a different country this would be.

Thanks for posting.

As my own half-creek grandmother would say:
Don't you mind those so-called "christians". They murdered your ancestors. Their bible was inspired by god, but written by the fallible hand of man. If you've slept on it, and you know you're right, then you're right with God.

I hadn't thought about the Indian reservations, but it might be legal on a lot of them. The Cheyenne and Arapaho require both partners to be Native and live on the tribal lands, but some tribes might be more lax about it. Glad they're able to give the finger to the state of Oklahoma! I hope the Choctaw in my state are able to do it too.
