  • stoopid encounters

    ok... i know you all have had "encounters" of sorts like this before... and i swear man... some people make me wonder how indians are viewed by other people :Mad

    for example... i got this call here @ work today and it went something like this:
    Him: "do you kno where i can register?"
    me: "register for what?" (grand entry?)
    him: "to be indian"
    me: (he's not SERIOUS... this is a grown man, right!? "ummmm... i'm sorry sir, but you first have to identify what tribe your affiliated with"
    him: "i THINK it's the sioux tribe"
    me: (is this happening?) "okaaaaaaaaaay... you first have to identify what band"
    him: "there's different bands? more than one? isn't the tribe in wyoming or something like that?"
    me: (oh my gosh!) "there are MANY bands of sioux tribes throughout a couple different states including, MT & SD"
    him: "oh yeah... montana... my gramm said something about that before - i think that's where i 'm from"
    me: (laughing histerically to myself!) "then you'll have to speak with your gramm to identify the band your affiliated with."
    him: "ok, so you don't have registration there... you answered my question, good!"

    maaaaaaaaaaan... i sooo wanted to reach my hand through the phone and smack him into reality! how ignorant does that sound? my goodness... if anything... it was worth a good laugh!

    so what kinda "stoopid encounters" have you had?

    My g/f works in a tribal culture department and they get calls like that a lot.

    "I might be Indian. My mom said my dad was Indian, she didn't know his name though, or where he was from. She just got knocked up from him. Can you tell me what kind of Indian I am?"

    One time I called up and acted like one of those people just to get a rise out of the culture office. It was funny.
    It is so sad that a family can torn apart by something as simple as a wild pack of dogs.

        that ain't right...hahah
        i ALWAYS get calls like that and these people are like in "life or death" situations... where they HAVE to know they're ndn or not or identify to get "benefits!"
        it pisses me off sometimes... cause they dunno a damn thing, but just to benefit... shooo man, they've lived 1/2 thier lives not knowing & surving... so why claim something now man!?
        it's a trip though for real... my daily laugh for sure!

                    I hate it when white people treat me like crap because they think I'm mexican or something and as soon as I tell them that I'm Indian right away they say I love Indians! Or they want to be my best friend and they want me tell them everything I know about natives! It gets annoying I just wanna be like GET AWAY FROM ME!! Anybody else ever had that problem?
                    If you should suck my soul, I should lick your funky emotions. Nothing's good unless you play with it, play with me baby.

                    Did you just see what god did to us man?

                    If Barbie is so popular why do have to buy her friends?

                      My encounters that I have been having lately at school have been frustrating. Of course, I posted the dumb joke before and then I get to overhear things like, "yeah, the white people never took the land from the indians because the indians didn't have a flag up to stake the land." Oooo...I had to turn around and say something. Needless to say, the friend of the little shyt tried to cover the little shyt's arse. I think he was afraid I was going to beat him up or something. :Yell :Mad

                      Otherwise, I get a lot of dumb questions and I hear a lot of dumb comments--It's that mized crap that I hear more than I should sometimes. It's just amazing how ignorant some people can be. I love when people tell me they have 1/16th or something like that or when they tell me they have indian in them but have no idea "what kind." That's when you walk away and just...
