LAST REAL INDIANS

how do you feel about natives who are mixed with white?

Isn’t that the majority now? We have to get away from thinking blood quantum is the end-all, be-all definition of Nativeness. Why? It’s a mathematical dead end imposed by the U.S. government to guarantee the extinction of tribes. Bloodlines are important, but we need to incorporate the importance of knowing ones tribal history, culture, language and belief system as well. Connections to one another are vital, we are a tribal people.

Still plagued by the self-animosity towards my race. I still can't get over how barbaric and cruel colonists were (and still are) towards indigenous races around the world. I suffer nightmares that one day, I will unconsciously murder whites out of hatred for stealing lands, imperialising other cultures, thinking whites are "culture parasites", that they are no better from the gorilla, or the spider. I think I am moving closer to my inner Mister Hyde. What in the gods' names have I become? :(

Hatred serves no purpose. Righteous anger? Sometimes. Channel those feelings into educating other white people, in a good way. Don’t hurt anyone, especially in the name of Natives. Perhaps prayer or therapy would help.

Is the "decolonize" poster meant to encourage whites to move back to Europe and dismantle the white infrastructure that they built in America? Because that doesn't sound like a bad idea...

No. Decolonization is a process whereby modern Indigenous peoples unlearn the oppressive programming of the Imperialist Colonial Corporatist Heteropatriarchy and embrace the culture, language and lifeways of their ancestors, one of sustainability and respect for Mother Earth and each other.

Why don't you show the Richard Mette article to the 'Wildboyz' in Pine Ridge and tell them to put their brawl to good use?

Stop having kids when you can't afford to take care of them & the kids won't be taken away. Educate about protection

What an incredibly ignorant thing to say. Educate yourself about America’s genocidal history, federal government termination and assimilation policy enforced against Natives, reservations (including stats on sexual violence against Native women by non-Native men (1 in 3), lack of medical care and law enforcement, and high unemployment rates) imposed poverty, broken treaties, intergenerational trauma, and economic racism. Then you’ll have some basis to have an opinion on this subject.

The South Dakota Department of Social Services has been illegally removing Lakota children from their homes and their tribes, in clear violation of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) of 1978, without giving substantial evidence or reasoning for many of the seizures (see recent ACLU blog: https://www.aclu.org/blog/racial-justice/why-are-these-indian-children-being-torn-away-their-homes). In addition to this, kinship care (children being placed with family members) is often denied. Because of this blatant denial of children’s rights, these children are being moved away from their families, their culture and their traditions. In addition to this, with funding coming from pharmaceutical companies and federal subsidies, many of these seized children are being labeled as “special needs” children and are put on cocktails of five or more psychiatric medications which have not been recommended for use in children by the FDA. This is a continuance of the Indian boarding school system, which was created from 1879 throughout the 20th century in the attempt to break familial bonds and eliminate the Native culture, but it is dressed up differently. The best solution to this slow cultural genocide that has been occurring for over 130 years is to empower the tribes with their own foster care and family services programs. With your help, we are well on the way to creating a foster care program run by Lakota, for Lakota. Please help us attain this solution by becoming a MEMBER: http://lakota.cc/1kvf8ka.

Our strategy toward protecting water, our most precious resource, must include advocates in headbands, vests and arms- to suits, specs and pens.
