Elizabeth Morris Quotes
''The white dominant culture seemed to think that once the Indians were off the reservations, they'd eventually become like everybody else. But they aren't like everybody else. When the Indianness is drummed out of them, they are turned into hopeless drunks on skid row.''Elizabeth Morris (b. c. 1933), Native American service agency administrator. As quoted in Ms. magazine, p. 50 (January 1973). An Athabascan Indian from Alaska, Morris was director of the Indian Center, a multiservice agency in Seattle, Washington.
