I don't know, Louis.  Luxemburg was a great theorist, but her position of 
the national question is known to be rather ugly.  I.e. she supported the 
continued domination of Poland by Russia and attacked the socialist party 
there for supporting self-determination.  I'd give it a D.

As for supporting the Mohawk nation, et al.  Most certainly.  But you 
can't say that their rights are any more important than the rights of any 
other oppressed nation.  Are you going to form a "hierarchy of the 
oppressed?"
