Cherokee looking for info

OSIYO brothers and sisters!

I am currently getting back in touch with my native roots. My whole life, it was never practiced in our family. Extremely americanized. Now I am learning the ways of this society are disgusting, and we must return to our native roots to be sustainable/healthy..

I am saving money to move and go live in nature. Hopefully at a reserve.

I would Really appreciate any information you guys have... I am looking for Native Americans that still practice Traditional methods! Growing our own foods, producing our own resources, building our own homes... I desperately want to find a community of people living like this. Really want to avoid the modernized areas with big houses/cars/cell towers etc.....

If a community like this still exists, Please someone connect me or give me info on it. This is the way of life for me. I will live it by myself if I have to , but would much rather find a community of like minded humans :)

Much love everyone!

I think you will find that modern european conviences such as horses and cloth and metal will creep in.

OK Ches, I've got to go for a teachable moment. I'm not arguing with the spirit of what you said. We can't put the genie back in the bottle. But, I am going to nitpick the particulars.

Don't sell your ancestors short. The Old World didn't have a corner on fabrics or metalsmithing. Cotton, milkweed, cedar, bird feathers, llama wool, wild hemp, and a variety of other animal and plant fibers all were spun into yarn and woven into fabrics. Silver, gold, copper and iron (from meteorites) were all worked into tools and ornaments.

Please decolonize. You have a very Eurocentric view of the pre-contact Americas. I'm going to prescribe some reading:)

Apology accepted, Captain Needa. *Sound of a limp body falling to the floor.*

Uhh nerd moment over.



You don't need to be sorry. You need to realize that you've been marinading in dominant culture perceptions of pre-contact Native America. The reality was more nuanced.

Look, you're dancing. You are dressing in Native clothes, moving to your people's music... You're stepping into the line of our people stretching from the past to today. You owe it to those coming up to know and to be able to present a decolonized version of your people's real history. It isn't your fault no one taught you, but it is your responsibility to learn. :)

It will take time and putting aside a lot. Maybe, I can get my reality bells to ringing.
