As a kid, to me the Fourth of July was all about one thing: fireworks. I grew up in the country in the Dakotas, where lighting off fireworks was pretty much a rite of passage for reservation kids. Roman candles, firecrackers, smoke bombs, artillery shells, and oft dreaded bottle rockets are still sold from make shift stands and big top tents on rural roadsides all across the prairie.

By this time in the 2008 presidential campaign, President Barack Obama was an adopted member of the Crow Nation of Montana, smiling and hugging his new parents, Sonny and Mary Black Eagle. Jodi Gillette, of the Standing Rock Sioux, Wizipan Garriott, of the Rosebud Sioux, and other Natives were out canvassing for him all around Indian country.

Obama’s rival, John McCain, former chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, had reached out to tribal leaders, asking them not to blindly vote for the Democrat. When McCain picked Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, his camp eagerly reminded Indian voters that her husband, Todd, and her children were of Alaska Native descent.
