It wouldn't matter if you did , those bounderies have already been established !
If I was to push any sort of agenda when it comes to considering Native Americans outside the US, it's more about acknowledging us as all the same race of people.But we're not ! So we all have varying degrees of pigment , but the truth is and this is my own personal opinion , our culture and belief systems are not even the same.Not even close ! We aren't sun worshippers , other that "I like a day at the beach" and I'm certainly not sacrificing anybody hoping to gain favor with the Gods !
It is much like how indigenous Europeans and their diaspora are usually considered the same race, AKA "White."
Usually ? I don't really believe that. I don't think our friend Broken Arrow would fit in the same box as someone from Ireland or Wales. Or even France or Spain ?

Let's not forget the US and virtually all other independent nations (save for Greenland to a certain extent) are products of colonialism; I favor independent Native American nations, with Greenland being the closest example.
We are a conquered people. We exist because our ancestors made treaties the the conquerors. They did what they thought best to save not only themselves , but their children. It was "let's make a deal or else we'll be eliminated" ! Now , we as tribal people have to live with that. Our forefathers wanted us to survive , to continue our culture , our beliefs, and it is our duty to do so. There will always be that line we can't cross if we want to continue to exist ! Congress could decide tomorrow to do away with all the treaties , outlaw casinos ,do away with "Tribes" and there would be nothing we could do.Do you really think that if all the "brown people" stood together we could take back the continent ? If you do then you are crazy as a loon ! Good luck with your agenda , I'll watch from a distance.

They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
It's not me....I think you're an idiot !





There's a chance you might not like me ,

but there's a bigger

chance I won't care
