  • i am back

    I went to a powwow recently which there was not many people from my tribe. I was wearing my tradtional cherokee dress, which delta henry finally finished it and its really pretty. WEll lets just say i got some really nasty looks from some people which really made me mad. I mean god its like there telling me i don't belong here or something when i am just as native as they are. UGH!!

    But besides that i am doing really good. Its nice to see that this board has really picked up. I can't wait to go back up to the reservation to see some friends
    well gotta go

    What powwow was this? I think that when people stare you up and down or give you dirty looks, its because they're jealous. Thats just my opinion. Just ignore it. They're the ones who look stupid.

      Sorry about the stares, just rememeber that not everywhere you go is not like this.
      Your indian and proud and wearing your traditional dress, we may not have many things left to us but we have our pride and you certainly are a proud girl.
      Hope school is going well, see you on the trail. Keep it up
      Well will wonders never cease.....

        Hey yall,

        I came up with a really good topic. Something I'm looking at right now. What have been your tougher lessons as a jingle dancer? What are you thankful for? I don't want to have to limit it just to us... but for now it's a start.

        I am sitting here with my eyes watering with tears over the story/myth I have just saw and read about the "Brave" and the beautiful Red Indian Paintbrush Flower. To be honest without sounding cheesy! I have never felt so emotional after reading something so simple but so beautiful. My heart...

Not being from The South (born and raised in Wisconsin) I am wondering if the feelings of alienation and discrimination that I am experiencing in school are common to all ndns in college or is a purely a Southern thing. I have learned that something...
