LAST REAL INDIANS

Lastrealindians hit 100,000 likes on Facebook tonight. We want to send a genuine heartfelt handshake & hug to all of you who believe in LRI; this is truly a peoples’ media movement, we cover the news, we create the news; original content, original insight; this is the cutting edge of the new indigenous millennium, we are at home in the eye of the whirlwind. Some times we lose likers because we don’t hold back, there are no corporate, advertising, tribal, casino or other concerns that we are beholden to. And when we cut weight or lose likers we have gained many many more than we have lost.  ***** we owe it all to every single one of you who’ve shared, liked, written an article, criticized an article, talked about LRI at the dinner table, and on and on.  Our mission is constantly evolving. We have all been subjected to the  spiritual usurpation that is the institutional west as now expressed thru all mainstream media and pop culture (epistemologies & so on) …indeed this is the “reality” the empire seeks to implant in place of your and our very spiritual salvation, but we intend to live. We are out for nothing less than to return humans to their true media and social media, that is Mother Nature and each other, the birds, the plants, the songs, ceremonies, languages, the stars, our dreams….. We would like to give a shout out to Karen Mobilia for being our 100,000 person to like LRI on Facebook, and we hit 100,000 right at 7:00pm as 7 is a sacred number for us once again, Thank you all so very much, to all of you who follow us  on Twitter and Tumblr as well, we appreciate every one of you …..

Since FB recently and over the past few weeks has banned every single one of our Admins at one point or another for some reason or another, Every LRI post will be approved by the Committee and undergo thorough legal review to ensure compliance with FB’s decency :) Thanks to everyone that reports us :) that’s all. Wait, that’s not all: you should follow us on twitter @lastrealindians and tumblr ( lastrealindians.tumblr.com ) in case they shut us down. Sincerely, the Committee.

The Timeline of the Lakota

By:  Dana Lone Hill

I was noticing the new timeline on Facebook.  Other than putting a cool cover picture up on the page reminiscent of the Myspace era, every individual gets their own little timeline on the right hand side of the page.  I have yet to spruce it up or add photos, but you get to go back to birth.  You can add a baby picture there or you could use the Facebook baby icon.  Your whole life and history is right there.  You can add to it if you choose to do so.

I started thinking about  a timeline in real life.  Not just my personal timeline because if I choose, I could throw it all out there on Facebook real easy.  I was thinking of the timeline of my people.  A timeline of the Lakota.  See, I think when people think of Indians/Native Americans, they automatically think of the wild west.  They think of us as one, although there are several hundred different nations in this country.  Either they think we are extinct or that we are so immersed in modern society that our way of life no longer exists.  READ MORE HERE:  http://www.lastrealindians.com/2012/08/08/the-timeline-of-the-lakota/
