    It was election time and a politician decided to go out to the
    local reservation and try to get the Native American vote. They
    were all assembled in the Council Hall to hear the speech. The
    politician had worked up to his finale, and the crowd was getting
    more and more excited. "I promise better education opportunities
    for Native Americans!"

    The crowd went wild, shouting "Hoya! Hoya!" The politician was a
    bit puzzled by the native word, but was encouraged by their
    enthusiasm. "I promise gambling reforms to allow a Casino on the
    Reservation!"

    "Hoya! Hoya!" cried the crowd, stomping their feet.

    "I promise more social reforms and job opportunities for Native
    Americans!" The crowd reached a frenzied pitch shouting "Hoya!
    Hoya! Hoya!"

    After the speech, the Politician was touring the Reservation, and
    saw a tremendous herd of cattle. Since he was raised on a ranch,
    and knew a bit about cattle, he asked the Chief if he could get
    closer to take a look at the cattle.

    "Sure," the Chief said, "but be careful not to step in the hoya."
