To the "white bread" girl: the Lakota community would probably be more likely to welcome you if you donated time and or money to efforts that are trying to improve the many issues going on right now instead of if you just learned the language. Also, you probably should think about why you are so in love with the culture and why you want to join the community. It sounds a little bit like fetishization to me.

I'm a wašiču. I'm a white bread run of the mill white chick. However, I am learning the Lakota language and am in love with the culture, I fight for cultural preservation and respect, I believe in the Creator and am striving daily to be an empty vessel for It. Am I always going to be seen as just some misguided out-of-place white girl in the Native community? I can understand why I would be, but will my efforts, deep respect and love show my heart in the end? I want nothing more in life.

You sound sort of confused. “Empty vessel”…isn’t that a biblical concept? That’s fine if you want to learn more about Lakota language and culture, but don’t come into our community thinking you need to save us or that we owe you something for it.

I am Lakota and Dakota
