He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for
increasing every Native American’s present
standard of living. He referred to his time as
a U.S. Senator and how he had voted for every
Native American issue that came to the floor
of the Senate.
Although President Obama was vague about
the details of his plans, he seemed most
enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about
his ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers.”
At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes
presented Obama with a plaque inscribed with
his new Indian name, “Walking Eagle.”
The proud President Obama accepted the plaque
and then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser,
waving to the crowds.
A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs
how they came to select the new name they had
given to the President.
They explained that “Walking Eagle” is the name given
to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.
