Here is the original post. Now we can get back on course:

white

It doesn't really matter how much of my culture or teachings that I continue or how many songs i know, how to stop on time or just cookin on the fire, As much as I want to feel native, everytime I spend the USA's money I feel ashamed of being like the white people and relying on money.

Been a long time since I've been here. The place looks the same as when I left except for a few new posts.

Anyhoo. I'm going to the University of Michigan Powwow in Ann Arbor this weekend dressed as a token white man. Do you think anyone will notice?

Wow, please be kind, don't know what was said to you but give each person a chance.

Sounds like someone seriously tipped over your Cheerios. I am here to listen fist, learn and understand.... my skin is white...so white I burn in 15 minutes in the sun, eyes green, hair blond... but I have roots(not my hair) that I respect. Please do not lump all people who look white as being the same... I do research, genealogy and that is how I got here. I would agree I am pigmently challenged, but the heart it good, peace.

Sounds like you haven't been paying attention to the humour part of being around NDNs.

Here's a hint, when someone says, "In my heart..." or "My heart is..." it causes a huge amount of laughter and will guarantee to get you teased. No amount of genealogy researching is going to help you figure that out.

This plays out in BOTH directions at some, but not all powwows.

Way too many NON-Indians show up like it is Halloween, and they want to play Native. Fake Native. The real Natives have every right to engage these persons...diplomatically...or IN THEIR FACE.

Now, the other end of this is Judgemental behavior, where certain persons will behave not so diplomatic. Not always fair, but after decades of Rejection by mainstream society, the powwow can be perfect setting for "payback" especially if on a Rez. Not everybody Plays Well With Others,

This is your TIMEX time, just take the licks and keep on ticking. Only people who know of your background, and are willing to accept you into their circle, will give you respect.

Most people will judge by appearance, such is life in USA, the home of racial strife. After the powwow, you remember the drums, and singing, take that on your path. Anything else not worth carrying.

I agree. I am asked if i am part Mexican, everyonce in awhile if i am Native. One friend who is half Cherokee looks white except his black hair. My other friend who is 25% looks full. You just never know.
