Things that make you want to pull your hair out.....

okay, tell me what you think and if you have any stories I would love to hear them. I went to a meeting today on human relations in the workplace. We talking about curltural awareness month. somebody mentioned native american cultural awareness month and what kind of event we could have, I was sitting next this girl who spoke up and said " we could invite somebody from the local tribe here to speak, and they could wear those FEATHER THINGS." I just looked at her and I so badly wanted to just smack her, but instead I just politely said that she shouldn't say things like that. This is the part that gets me, she remarked " I'm Indian." Oh my gosh it was all I could do to keep myself from jumping out my seat and beating the crap out of her. Since I'm an adult, that would have been inappropriate so I said, " You must not be very indian since you don't know what your talking about."
My point is this, If you don't know what your talking about then for crying out loud DON'T claim that you are indian.

I get people like that every day. I hear stories of how people can assume to be Indian because they have the high cheekbones and the dark color. I'm like, "what?" Then I explain that there are over 500 tribes in US and Canada, and not everyone has the same look. There are other things people say, but it would take all day to tell 'em.

Talking Tawow

people who think we still live in teepees and hunt buffalo!
I recently met a family on the greyhound bus from england and they thought we still lived in teepees. they actually stared outside looking for teepees & buffako so i had to explain it to them. i thought it would be kind of cool that we did live in modern teepees & hunted modern buffalo!

I was just picturing this and couldn't stop laughing. Made me think though you would be really well represented at food fairs in malls. You would be rich. Put refried beans in the fried rice, now that would be a cool combination.

I have a question. If a white guy like me was interested in native culture,witch I am. Where would I go for such information. I live In Alaska and our Native culture here is not that of the lower 48. I know what the problem is I think , the Russian and the Americans brought to much poision to this land and now the young have no time or will for the traditions of the past. Can you help me on a good path..If any one is would like to e-mail me please do so. johnsonbrentlee@yahoo.com

Well yeah.. that WAS one of the main problems but I love how hard the people here are working at getting back and or preserving the cultures here.. this state is rich with it!

You want to be on a good path.. then simply do what's right. You don't have to follow ndn traditions or ways to make right choices in your life or to live a good one. If it's just a general interest in our cultures and not trying to find that "spiritual" path.. then just read here... there's plenty of people who share aspects of their culture, stories and such.
