LAST REAL INDIANS

"This is INDIAN COUNTRY. Many of us have been educated to believe that we don’t belong in this place of meaning-making, that we don’t have anything worthwhile to contribute as Native peoples, that the intellectual traditions of our families and communities aren’t powerful understandings of the world and her ways. But who is better qualified to understand this land than the peoples who have shared life with her for untold ages? We belong to this land; we’re not guests of the Invaders, to be given access at their whim. The knowledge of Natives peoples is the voice of Turtle Island that speaks closest to all humanity. THIS IS OUR INHERITANCE." ~David Heath Justice
