Who is DYUSA? Many of us who do enjoy your vlogs do not reside in California, so often are not exposed to various organizations in the state. Please, do explain briefly who DYUSA is and their concerns are. Thanks!

I agree with Joel.

DYUSA stand for Deaf Youth of USA. Bay Area chapter of DYUSA proposed for CSD community to examine the Bear Hunt statue closer to realize that it has some “isms” in it – racism and audism. For these reasons, they wondered if we should remove/relocate the Bear Hunt statue. Hope this helps.

Like Joey’s viewpoint. I still not understand why DYUSA decided that BearHunt should be hide in nook… How many deaf students were in picture with Bear Hunt as background from 1895 to present? In deaf community, they often talk or discuss about “ism” My question is why they can not use new word in labeling with “ism” How about deafism as I feel that that it is needed to label some groupies. I believe that we should put Bear Hunt openly in public where all people can see what deaf can do anything.

I enjoyed the Vlog. One thing bothers me a lot to see anyone say “train” students or people . It sounds like we “train” animals to prepare for a three ring circus.
Why dont we use the word ” prepare” in place of “train”? We should prepare our youths instead of “train ” our youths.

I’m glad to watch your video this morning and it’s was very good the show also I’m proud of you because you are very intelligent ASL!!
Also I wonder if they have a book at the Barnes and Nobles Bookstore? or Order it through to the CSD bookstore? Let me know please?
Joey Baer | July 6th, 2012 at 5:34 pm
The book can be ordered through Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Douglas-Tilden-The-Man-Legacy/dp/096378160X
I am sure if you google it, you probably can find the book elsewhere – not only at Amazon.

Well said, Joey!
I grew up at CSD, Berkeley and was always inspired and fascinated by the Bear Hunt Statue.
Never once did I think of Indians being oppressed.
I simply saw a mother bear ferociously protecting her cubs and the Indians fighting for survival.
Indians lived here first before white men.
I am not Douglas Tilden nor do I know his thoughts when he did the Bear Hunt Statue;however, I believe that he would strongly disagree with the new philosophy.
I am FOR keeping the Bear Hunt Statue!!!

Even tho I am not from CSD or Calif., please leave the Bear Hunt Statue as it is. Maybe in future, I may visit the statue there. Honest! I don’t see “isms” in it . What I see is survival period. Like in TV, there is program called Hunter and Hunted.

EXCELLENT VLOG! Thank you for taking the time. I had no idea there was a petition being circulated concerning the statue.

I’m full blood Lakota, my only question is…why did he choose bear and Indian warrior to represent oppression?
Joey Baer | July 18th, 2012 at 12:20 pm
That’s great question. In the book, Douglas Tilden, it explained why Douglas choose Indian because it represents America. Douglas was in France when he sculptured it and he felt Europeans need to be exposed to America’s identity so he choose Indians because they were America’s first people. There are more explanation in the book. I also am hoping to have someone to explain more via Vlog on why Indian and Bear was chosen. Thanks again for stopping by!
