Robert K Thomas: Lecture on Nationalism November 8, 1960

This is a rare piece by Bob.  Lecture on Nationalism November 8, 1960  Because of the times, Bob kept his authorship of this lecture secret.  However, the circulation of this lecture made a major impact for a number of years.  It is interesting that currently some idiots are stating that Bob was a Whiteman pretending to be a Cherokee and that Bob got all his ideas from Vine Deloria.  These are certainly misconceptions which are personal attempts to diminish Bob's importance in American Indian History.   As seen by this lecture, Bob talks about his young life and growing awareness within the tribal world.
