Master cartoonist, filmmaker, artist, teacher and stand-up comic, Ricardo Cate is also a serious participant in his Pueblo culture.

It was said of his work, “Cate hits on the irony native people feel and express in humor.”

Here, he makes a mordant comment, steeped, as always, in wry humor.

Field trips are supposed to be different and fun, right?

On a class field trip, the little Native kids are dumbfounded to see familiar household items in a museum.

Is Native life a dead culture, enshrined in exhibits, or is it alive and thriving?

When Wright’s hosted kindergartners from a multi-cultural school, the Native tykes repeatedly called out – in delight – ” My grandma has that!”

These little boys are older, and think this field trip is a bust because all that stuff is just what they have at home.

So, does that make it less special, or more??

Smile, while you ponder.
