Hi I love your Tumblr! Our law firm recently posted a video of the respected Russell Means as a tribute to his life. I'd really appreciate it if you reblogged it so we can get more views on the video. Thank you so much!
I love your blog! I work @ Lakota People's Law Project, a non-profit law firm who is currently working with the Indian Child Welfare Act directors in South Dakota to make the Bureau of Indian Affairs keep its pledge to hold a summit on Lakota foster care. The summit is 9 months overdue! We have a petition going around on our Facebook. I've posted the link on my tumblr page. If you could reblog it, we could really make a difference! Thank you so much.
Hi! I was wondering if you could help me with something. I grew up with my mother's side of the family, which is Cajun, and I'm well educated on that aspect, but my dad's side is American Indian, and sadly, I know nothing of my heritage from them. My grandfather died when my dad was young, so he never was able to get any information, and neither were his other siblings, not even the name of the tribe. I really want to trace back my ancestry, but I don't know where to start. Any suggestions?:)
I'm about as Native American as a plastic dayglo dreamcatcher, but I do have a minuscule bit Cherokee ancestry (not the 'Indian princess' nonsense, actual records and photos) and have spent time doing community service on a rez. People keep expecting me not to care when they make prejudiced remarks against Native Americans. How can I justify my aggravation without sounding like an asshole?
There is absolutely nothing wrong with telling something that racist remarks are offensive. Even if society doesn’t consider you that race, there’s nothing wrong with sticking up for an entire race of people. I’m native and white, but I still shut people down when they make black jokes. You won’t sound like an asshole, you’ll sound like a decent human being. Good luck!
how do you feel about other tribal adoption?
Where'd you get that IHOF REZTURANT hoodie? I love ittttt
Thanks!! I got it at a pow wow from a lovely lady vendor! There were so many NDN shirts she’d made, it was amazing. She’d even made shirts that had Disney characters in regalia. Gosh, it was awesome. My mom still has the lady’s card. I will see if I can get her contact information and post it on here. :)
