Yes, the Chief is part Native American. And yes, he is a Youper.

His original username name was Goodweed of the North, but afyer he mentioned his ancestry, and with his penchant for long winded stories, the name Chief Longwind of the North was borne.

May your kilt be short enough to do a jig, but long enough to cover your Lucky Charms.

I found Mel Patterson, he wrote a column for the Tonawanda News in the 60's. This is the only patriotic column that I could find but I will look at a few more.

Why not? Why ask that question?

I Really like the Bat Man hero,

I've been reading the Iroquois and the New Deal (Tuscara) from the Buffalo NY Courier Express. It appears that Mel Patterson was a Rotarian. He tirelessly supported the Iroquois and also the Seneca Indians. I had no real idea about the history of those time, but they certainly seemed turbulent. I have an admiration for people of his ilk. I haven't finished reading the work mentioned above, but I'm amazed that they seemed to be such turbulent times. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Maybe one day I'll come across the article I'm searching, which would be nice, not only because it was very moving, but also of an eloquence rarely found.
