Native American Best Friend Forever BFF
I joined this site a long time ago to connect with a part of myself.
When I was growing up, I didn’t know so much about my family history. At the time, I had some Native American neighbors. I believe there was a reason for that. On one side of my home, lived a Cherokee. On the other side of me, lived a half Navaho guy. One day, I found this song with some Native chanting in it. My Navaho neighbor came over one day to help my mom fix something and caught me listening to the song. He said that I must be part Native like him to listen to such music instead of pop or rock.
A few years later, we moved in with my grandparents in a different neighborhood. I lost contact with my Navaho friend. However, I did paint him a picture of a Navaho as a gift before I moved away. He liked to collect paintings of Native American portraits and of other Native American things. So he liked my painting too.
I never got to tell him that he was right. Later on, I found out there was Choctaw and Micmac and maybe some other kinds of Louisiana tribes mixed in with the Cajun French on my grandmother’s side. A lot of Louisiana tribes could speak French too. I also never got to tell him that the song he caught me listening to was actually sung by Natives in Taiwan. Found that out years later as well.
Now I currently work in Shanghai, but I listen to Native American music almost everyday from my phone. It’s a very spiritual activity for me. Can’t find that type of music at Chinese Karaoke though.
Since I moved to China after 2012, I went through some kind of spiritual shift. I currently care a lot about my spiritual growth, health & wellness, doing stuff at the gym, expanding my consciousness.I enjoy reading about philosophy, the mysteries of the universe, and watching inspirational videos. I also like watching videos about Native American traditions.
Since I live in China, I study Ch
