Just over a year ago, The New Republic ran a story with a catchy, but slightly insulting title: "White People Love Hiking. Minorities Don't. Here's Why." Like many other Latinos in the Southwest, I come from a family who, among other things, enjoy hunting and hiking; all activities the sensational title claims minorities "don't" like.
This past November I sent you an invitation to visit North Dakota, and it seems you have taken up the offer. As I understand it, you will be visiting the Standing Rock Reservation on June 13. I hope you will consider visiting the Fort Berthold Reservation, what I would call Ground Zero of the Bakken oil boom.
