At 26, Noel Starblanket is one of the youngest Indian chiefs in North America. Twice he was elected chief of the Starblanket Reserve, a band of 120 Cree, and was also elected vice-president of all Saskatchewan Indians. His great-grandfather's advice was to "learn the wit and cunning of the White man." So he did. Here, Starblanket is a Native leader with a briefcase, working with government officials for grants, running for public office, talking down his opposition and solving domestic problems on his reserve.

    I love the fact that this guy is passionate about helping the people on his reserve but quite frankly, his negative and non-loving attitude about white people will cause his ultimate downfall. A person goes much farther ahead when they are moved by love not hatred.
