What is a clan? Is that a tribe?

Asked by

No. Some tribes have clan systems within them. Clans are kinship groups, extended family with a common ancestor.

I'm seminole and if someone were to be the same clan date/marry another of the same then it's talked about throughout the people but that's it. But the elders are more likely to look down on you because they are far more traditional than most of us

Interesting. To my knowledge people aren’t banished over it but reactions run the gamut from being community pariahs where you’re disowned by family to just being laughed at and talked about behind your back. If they have kids those children will have a hard time with it.

Do you believe that sports teams and school mascots should be changed even if they are honoring a tribe?

How are they honoring Tribes? By mocking our Native ancestors with mascot Jackassery, or by promoting false and negative stereotypes about us? Are they honoring us when they try to silence activists or say we have no right to be offended?

I was wondering if you could tell me your opinion on dream catcher tattoos. Whenever I see them I tend to cringe with frustration, but I'd like another opinion since I'm afraid of voicing out my frustration and coming off as overly sensitive or something

When non-Natives get dream catcher tattoos it’s a form of cultural appropriation.

What happens if a Native marries someone in their own clan? Are they ostracised?

Depends on the Tribe but its frowned upon across the board.

The horror story of human trafficking crosses boarders and race, but it seems to be especially bad for Native American children that are in foster care in America. The Lakota People’s Law Project has been moving forward in creating a foster care program run by Lakota, for Lakota so that the tribes are in charge of their family services programs. With this in place, the human trafficking of Native American foster children must be stopped!

Long, long ago there was only darkness (han), han was not nothing but was and is a “darkness”, during this time Inyan was the foremost spiritual entity and he became aware of himself and was lonely so he decided to create another, this was and is Maka (Earth) and to do this he had to Create of himself. Thus, he began to spin with such explosive force that the whole of Creation was begun but that Creation was only possible because he was willing to sacrifice of himself, to give up his place as the foremost power (under the Incomprehensible Sacred) and to give his own blood (which is water) which now carries his power, but he remained with with sacred power and became tunka (the oldest god, or the “rock” as it is known today). -A Creation Story of the Oceti Sakowin (Great Sioux Nation). Spiritual Leader Leonard Crow Dog was on hand to impart the spiritual relationship that Original Peoples of the hemisphere, and all beings by extension, have with the water. 

Crow Dog stated “our souls are hungry, for what?, the water of life.”
