Two Bears Growling
This is always how it has been, son of the people. For so many hundreds of years since the Invaders landed on the shores of our Continent, we were deemed savages & devils. now who was were the savages & devils? The Invaders were, that's who! For so many years we were called uneducated. Uneducated by whom? The Invaders! Who were they to call anyone uneducated! So many of them couldn't have survived had it not been for our people on the East coast helping them out. We were all doing just fine until these washichu evil ones murdered our ancestors for the beautiful lands & all the mineral wealth beneath the surface. We were tricked, cheated, lied to about so many things. Especially in those treaties that weren't worth the paper they were written on. Somehow we have survived, though not untouched by the ravages of time, but still there has always been a group of our many people who did not forget our languages, our cultures & beliefs & all that makes us who we are. I am thankful for my ancestors, as I am sure many of us all are, for seeing what our future would be to where many of our people are thriving & beating the washichu at their own games! We are once more starting to open immersion schools for our children taught by our own people. We are seeing those early fruit of this labor of love take hold with pride in our communities. I am so grateful to the Creator to have lived long enough to see this take place finally. Dreams DO come true my friends if we believe they can & never give up that hope that creates the reality & carries it forth to fruition.
