Hello kinda new here
 
Hello,
Just trying to connect with more Native people since the area I live in are few. Always interested in learning more about my culture to teach and share with my two precious little ones. ( Osage, Cherokee, White mountain apache on dad's side/ Cherokee, Blackfoot, and Creek on Mom's side). And always nice to have someone to say hi too!!

Joe's Dad 03-16-2010 10:08 AM

Holay, that's a lot of types of NDNs u have in u. Bet it's hard to keep up with all of them!

NEwayz, welcome to powwows.com. Hope u find what ur looking for.

cmartin 03-16-2010 10:31 AM

Not really. My family is all mixed up whether by marriage and/or blood. I try to learn and understand a little bit from each. I am studying the Giduwah dialect ( for the Eastern Cherokee), bellydancing for the Arab,
trying to learn ribbonwork for the Osage and the language, I don't know you just break it down, lol. My culture is really important too me.

cmartin 03-16-2010 10:32 AM

Greetings & Blessed Morning...
Hope you will not receive the same "warm" welcome which I received, once I started to express my points of views on certain thread issues... just be cautious what you post, and you'll be fine!

May thy life be a safe journey...

WHoa thanks for the warning..but I am just here to learn more about my culture from others who may have more experience or knowledge and just say hi. Hi, lol

cmartin 03-16-2010 10:58 AM

I just basically want to learn more. I'd love to learn how to sing in my native language, figure out how to get my babies more involved. I am not too opinonated.. I love to dance ( just started jingle and love Tradish) hip hop dance ( learned Ciara's Promise ( I danced classic Ballet for 14 yrs., anything to do with my culture and of course being a mommy.

Ras Redbone-

cmartin, let me apologize to you for what I am about to do. My sincere apologies

Ras Redbone. This is directed to u.

It is not fair to tell a newcomer to this site they will receive a 'warm' welcome if they express their point. You, my friend, are not knowledgeable of 'NDN way'. That is evident from your first post. Real NDNs don't blast out they have 'totems'. Real NDNS don't come in and try to show their expertise on all subjects. You saw what you wrote to Cetan Zi. Many of us have been on here for years. Many of us have stress filled jobs in a white world and enjoy coming on here to be with our own, because of the commonality we have in our lives. You don't have that commonality. You came on here and in <10 posts, tried to change the world. That's why you were called out on some of your posts. Grow up. BTW I was protesting the Vietnam War back in the late 60's. Don't come on here trying to say we are 'establishment' and are brainwashed.

cmartin, again I apologize. Hope the time you spend on this site is as rewarding to you as it has been to many of us.

Hope u understand NDN humor. There's a lot of it on here. Not me, though. I'm always way serious!

cmartin 03-16-2010 11:10 AM

That's ok. Just looking to learn more. I am a pretty nice girl, just looking to learn more about my culture.

WhoMe 03-16-2010 11:32 AM

cmartin,

Howay, 'Siyo, Yatasay, Oki and Henscha!

cmartin 03-16-2010 11:35 AM

Eagle Plumes 03-16-2010 11:43 AM

cmartin 03-16-2010 12:08 PM

Thank you. I definetely am eager to learn, as much as, I can from those with experience and/or knowledge. Thank you again.

wanjica_the_one 03-16-2010 02:04 PM

welcome cmartin,
don't listen to white rasta people, listen to your family.

NancyJo 03-16-2010 06:39 PM

Hey JD,
I think you could start a whole thread on your statement:

"Many of us have stress filled jobs in a white world and enjoy coming on here to be with our own, because of the commonality we have in our lives." :thumbsup:

It is nice to have a place to come to at the end of the day (sometimes during the day.....don't tell my boss!!:wink_smil ) where we can talk......and kid around.....a LOT!

Anyway......had to jump in to put in my 2 cents.

Welcome, cmartin!

Yeah sure, TT! You're about as shy as Tiger Woods

Hello..

cmartin 03-18-2010 07:25 PM

Hi ,
How do you get your young ones to overcome their shyness to enter the circle and start dancing without seeming pushy? My little girl is 5 and is shy like me. And right now, she doesn't have any other little girls to identify with and bond. I think she'd feel better if she did, though. Any suggestions, would help. She wants to dance Tradish and Jingle. thank you
