Talking

That just because you met me and found out I'm NdN; that now magically somehow I know every NdN in America and Canada.

Has this happened to any of you out there in NdN & non-NdN country?

Even crazier - someone has a contemporary song with some spoken or sung ndn language:

Tell me what they're saying.

(I listen and catch a word or two.)

Uh, that's Navaho (or Lakota or whatever).

So - what are they saying?

... Like being ndn means I know all the languages of all the ppl in North America. I speak Nishnabek, and I'm rusty in it since I haven't been around a fluent speaker in almost 4 decades.

What I would like people to understand that not all Native peoples have a last name like Running Hawk (just an example) My last name is Rojas, when I tell people they usually give me a blank stare or start speaking spanish. I don't know spanish! has anything like this ever happend to anyone else?
Just my two cents

ok so check it out. I had this professor my 2nd semester of Jr. College who was a GREAT person and a GREAT and passionate teacher. A white guy that truly wants to change the world or at least spark the mind that changes the world. He taught a class called "Raising children in a multicultural society" or "HUDV27" anyway it was that class that led me to wanting to be a preschool teacher. We covered every kind of "-ism" you can imagine in that class (racism, sexism, ableism, all that). But when it came to racism we covered a lot on black/white relations, mexican/immigrant issues, some on asian issues, but in that whole class, only one tiny chapter in one of the books even mentioned Native American issues. I asked him about that and he said that he didn't know a whole lot of good resources to bring that into the class but he would like to. What if I compiled all this info for him? Could I do that? Would anyone be opposed? I could get more from some more people not on here too.

Keep some distance between people when talking, dont crowd them. Dont stare natives right in the eye, we are gentle ppl (keep staring us down or u'll get scapled). Dont touch our hair or our babys without asking first.

I wish they understood that Native American Indians respect all of God's creations as being alive. And, that there is a "Spirit" to all of these creations, that is very much alive.

From the trees, that are God's witnesses, to all that is in the sky: Sun, Moon, the Clouds, Lighting, Thunder and all of the animals.

For example: Native American Indians hold the Eagle Feather in high regard because, the Eagle flys the highest to the heavens. When we make a motion with that Feather while praying, the "Spirit" that belongs to the Eagle from where that Feather came, can take that prayer to God.

And, I wish they wouldn't always complain about the weather. Their complaints will not change the weather. These people are only getting in the way.

Some Skins don't know.....

Not every one is a historian, or a know it all....Some make themselves out to be, but it really shows when their either new to da mix or basically clueless......Not a real humble explanation, just right to the point....

I am trying to do something I have never done before. I hope that you can understand that I do want to and do feel like I belong here...
I may be new, but I am proud to be Tsaliga and Blackfoot. I am not a pure breed, but I am a part of the people.
Please, if you want to help me to fit in, I would appreciate that, but don't beat me up for trying. I am only what I am.

There are other threads for this dialog my friend. This is the What is most important to you that Whites know about our people? thread.

I feel you on some of your issues. But lets try and stay on task shall we? I'm attempting to be as respectful as I can with out being disrespectful.


I've found a few places for skins to reach out to one another for advice and general sincere counseling: The "Spiritual Health" thread on the Health Issues Board. Also the "Marriage/Depression/Divorce thread on Health Issues. There are also individuals who have started specific threads which ask for advice from us all.

Peace

Right on! I also find it offensive when some white person who finds out I'm a skin and says" hey say something in Indian for me!" WTF? Seriously folks...

I am staying on the thread...by answering a question. I don't need to go to deprresson/marriage or divorce. This is not a health issue. This is about being a Native American and what I want whites to know, with due respect. I want them to know that I sit at the table next to them and listen to them put down Native Americans...how they say we are lazy and that we live on the rez because its free. That we are not Americans...I want you to know that I am an in between and I hear what you don't.

Talking So What Do Indians Eat Anyways?

That we eat food just like they do. So many non-Indians have asked me over the years? So like what do Indians eat? Their just amazed that we eat the same food they do. I tell them we eat hot dogs, and cheese burgers and coca cola and ice cream and ribs and pizza etc.

They ask if we eat dog and buffalo and other things I can't recall anymore. Their eyes get real big and they act like I'm lying and that we eat friggn Klingon food or something! LOL! But others smile a bit embarrassed a accept what I tell them.

Oh the ignorance!
