What an ignorant & bigotted washichu! I will not even mention the evil one this bigot even named. Needless to say, this one whose name shall not pass my lips got EXACTLY what he deserved in 1876!
Too many in this western society deem those of us who do not agree with their idea of what makes someone or some society civilized to be the enemy & needing conquered & destroyed.
I have news for these ignorant ones. OUR peoples were far, far more civilized than any of them ever were in those days. We helped these weaklings to survive the harsh winters. We taught them how to hunt the game, plant gardens, etc.
OUR peoples are the ones who have been offended when maligned with such nonsense as this washichu spouts. After all these years OUR peoples are STILL being taken advantage of, lied about, our women & children harmed & our elders disrespected.
Just recently I read a news article from a native newspaper that was about an election. This woman who is native, went door to door asking folks to vote for her. Some of the ignorant ones she ran into at times flat out told her they would not vote for her because she WAS Indian! I was shocked to read this since this was on a reservation. Needless to say, this woman won the election in spite of the adversities she ran into while running for election! I applaud this sister in overcoming the odds. Hoa!
Brothers & sisters far & wide, our many peoples STILL come across ignorance, bigotry, racism even in this day & age. What can we do about it? Live each day with pride, grace, respect & living in a manner that reflects who we all really are: A people with honor in spite of all we face in this world among those whose hearts & minds are turned evil generation after generation. March on brothers & sisters far & wide.
We have no one to please but our Creator. Remember, when you hear ignorant things about our peoples, prove the ignorant ones wrong about who we as a people are. Live with honor, with respect, decency & proud of your tribe & where you come from.
