  • you know your native when.............

    When somebody falls down, you laugh first, then ask if they're okay.

    You know people by their nicknames, and forget their "real" names.

    By the age of 13 your an expert at driving where as other children off rez at the age of 15 are learning how to back out of a 12foot drive way.

    When listening to the scanner you can usually look out your window to see the action. yeee!!!

    There is at least one car parked in your yard, missing parts, maybe a door, probably sitting on blocks... Yah your gonna get her running one of these days, damn that's a good car!!

    Most injuries can be fixed at home, going to the clinic is torture in its self.

    You at some point have cried while watching Smoke Signals, or Pow-wow Highway.

    Most of the knowlege you've gained about the world abroad comes from the discovery channel.

    Your trusted pup is a fine heinz 57 mix who has never seen a liesh, leash.

    Someone near your home if not you has their house painted in some type of easter egg coloring.

    The local mechanic's garage is his yard.

    Your trained in the fine art of wiring vehicles, and opening door locks.

    An essential thing to have in your house is duct tape, or wd40, they can fix anything.

    Some of the most heated debates is which one of your aunties makes the best fry bread.

    A true delicasy is dry meat soup, and some fry bread.

    The Chief gives the day off during certain occasions, such as pow-wows, and when the h.s. basketball team makes it to state, rather than having to deal with all the leaves, sick, emergency, administration, yep.

    You have never been to a salon to have your hair cut, either the bathroom or the back porch.

    Such a small community, your on a first name basis with the entire police force.

    You have your own dialect and can usually tell what rez another native is from by their speech and features.

    One of the main words in your vocabulary is "ennit".

    Out of all the cheeses you've sampled there is only one that you really like, heh, heh, you know what i'm talkin about, and it's only available on yep, "the rez".

    You point with your chin, or your lips, instead of your hands.

    Your car has at one point in time been held together by some type of adhesive, duct tape, crazy glue, some wire, or bubble yum, aye don't laugh I tried it, it works.

    When you go to town for groceries, half the rez is in town too.

    You have tried to use one of the following excuses for a hickey, it's a rug burn, an allergic reaction, you fell, you were pinched, heh, heh, don't bother they never work.

    Your third cousin is just as close to you as one of your brothers or sisters.

    You in a room with three other natives can pin point anyone else in the near by area with the vaguest of details. Finally the number one sign that you are a true native is,

    No meal is complete with out bread, whether it be Italian, french, chinese, still needs bread. (especially frybread!!!)

                              when you go to a wedding and you are related to both the bride and groom.

                              on a hot summer day you see a pair of longjohns on the washing line.

                              all your kids are named after characters on soaps.

                              dogs on the rez have a better social life than you.

                                It seems that all the 'what are you reading now' threads have died and I decided to make my own thread for books.

                                Post what you're currently reading, ask for recommendations or give recommendations, post what books you got most recently and anything else book related.
