The above post was edited by us...because it mentioned a specific member by name in a negative way.

We don't want to see things like this anymore.

If you want to report a post or a member, send us an email...but don't post a negative comment in the forum.

Posting negative comments just causes people to get defensive and lash out, and it scares other members away from posting...because who wants to be attacked for some random comment?

This forum could be filled with so many interesting posts about Tribal culture, and issues effecting Native people on a day to day basis.

That type of stuff is what we are hoping for...and less of the personal stuff.

Just our two cents.

Thanks,
Cool

`I am not native, I dont claim to be native, I am here to make some new friends...
as for why I dont hang with whites, that goes back to highschool girls basketball game....but to make a long story short....the high school I went to was playing there school(CCHS) it was half time of the JV game I was being hassled yet again for my dad being a teacher at there school, and it just so happens this time I decided to fight back even more so than I did before and most of there school's(CCHS) varsity players decided to back me up, but after that night I never had friends just enemies in my school, every day it was a fight just to make it though the day -- I didnt want to be there and they didnt want me there even the teachers at that school would tell me to go to CCHS, but at that time there policy was if you weren't 1/4 native american you couldnt go so that was not an option for me - to this day I am still friends with most of those girls that backed me up at that game.

`How do you determine if someone is fake? I'm sure there probably are a lot of people on here misrepresenting themselves, for whatever reason, but how can you be so sure that what someone has told you isn't the truth? The issue I've been having is this: I currently live in the UK and so that is my location shown on this site, but it is not where I'm originally from (as in, it is not where I or any of the women in my family, going back for generations, were born and raised). But I've had a couple of people just stop talking to me completely when I've told them about where I'm originally from, presumably because they think I'm bullsh*tting... Why are people so quick to assume that people are lying about themselves? I didn't just join this site to learn about your culture. I also came to share mine with you. I have met some truly wonderful people on here already, but I am honestly also very surprised by the amount of people I've met who seem unable to look past the ends of their own noses...

Anthropological speaking, where the hell do i fin a "pure white" in sweden what like 50 persons? seriously, the entire planet is mixed for all reasons and motivs cultures had destruction from outside and inside, yes inside too... for weapons for stupidity, the great britain aniquilated my culture too, we are not 3 million...they didnt destroyed they aniquilated the old ways of my people, 2 different words, in a few time not a single person will speak or know from where we came, was worse because we were right next to them .

However natives cultures teach the magnificent way of justice forgive and to be brave, focus in the real thing those who still have the knowledge, forget the little things because it really doesnt matter to the skies.

big smile to everyone!

This thread is old, and the original poster isn't a member anymore, but I will add my perspective for those of us (like me) who stumble on this topic and decide to continue this important dialogue.

There are all kinds of people in the world (mind you, I've had to drill that into my head every day, because it often does seem to me, personally, as if there's just me--and a whole world of folks, some even family, that don't say what they mean or feel, whose smiles and voices are insincere, and who have ulterior motives behind every strange thing they do. I know the frustration--it can shape you if you let it).

But not everyone whose wrapping happens to be, for whatever genetic reason, a lighter shade on the color wheel...is pretending to be someone other than who they are. Most certainly some are, and will have their personal motives for being here, but some genuinely are folks who, in a very natural way, connect, not with what they see around them, but rather with their human roots, and relate to the very concrete connection to those roots that Native Nation folks inherently have. And if those folks happen to live in places that are too disconnected and too polluted, and they are very limited in the kinds of people they can interact with, it can get painfully lonely for the spirit. So they will become "proactive" (I will forever associate that word with acne, btw) and search out a website, for example, in the hopes of finding folks with whom they share something deeply meaningful...and perhaps whom they can respect (because if you cannot find folks that you can respect, how can you ever begin a friendship with anyone?)

I, for one, do not presume to equate my sense of spirit with that of the members of any Native Nation or Tribe. But I do feel a need and drive to connect back to my human roots, and imagine that, along that journey, though I may mostly walk alone, there will be times when, the closer i get to walking in the right direction, l will join up with clusters of spirits--spirits who never lost their way, or who perhaps might have, but who had the benefit of their families and communities to hold them together (I do not have that benefit--I walk alone).

So I will ask you to please forgive me if I stumble onto your trail on occasion, or even seek it out, either to check my direction, or perhaps simply because I am lonely. And please, if you see that I am blinded and lost, do not turn your back, but help me. Perhaps that trail will be so dusty with the beaten earth, that by the time we meet each other, you will not even see the color of my skin.

^That's my talking feather lol

I am a full-blooded American.
I am 1/16 Cherokee @ best. I am also.. Italian, White-Southerner, and German to my knowledge. Perhaps more.. I embrace knowledge of all these cultures. At times I learn I've been raised with more customs and superstitions to each culture then I realize. I think that allows me to bring the following to alls attention.
I do not understand why so many hearts are sick with such judgement.
What would our ancestors feel/say.. Would it be a insult/injustice.. That are past people (whom-ever they were) did everything in their power to just survive and now what gifts/legacies they left behind face judgement/scrutiny from both worlds.
Am I wise? Am I a fool? What does ur heart/soul say to U?

`In the end we are no different than any other animal on this earth... wouldn't it be nice to have no distinction between white, native, african, etc? but its in human nature to carry this dirty trait. I think (rationalize or whatever) its no different than 8 wolves piling up on an injured moose dragging it down and ripping it apart limb by limb as it slowly and painfully dies...its just one of those ticks we as humans developed and are still developing to this day. I am full blooded native and i have no qualms against a people or person trying to belong to a particular group...if they want to belong to a native group...hindu group or whatever then so be it...we get offended when someone is racist towards us but when they want to emulate us we still get mad...wtf. lol thats just plain ignorant but like i said before its just one of those ticks we as humans have to live with...try not to think about yourselves and how others get YOU mad...think about how you can change your point of view so your children and their children can have a better life. Complaining only goes so far .. make the choice to be better ...so others copy your good behavior..i know its a far stretch for allot of us but its the effort that will overcome ... eventually...unless the world explodes into a bajillion pieces in a couple of weeks hehehe

Actually, the more I think about the non-Indians--or people with very, very tenuous Indian ancestry who know nothing about the culture--trying to be Indians, the more I think it's not so bad. I will admit, I can get very annoyed by wanna-be's. But anyway, my point is this: assimilation has devastated us. They took us and sent us to boarding schools as children to rob us of our languages. They made our religions illegal. They turned our culture into something for history class only. Now, some yuppie white girl finds out she had a Cherokee great-great-great-grandmother, or somebody says she did, and she wants to be a Cherokee. Well, why not? In the past, a lot of Indians had rituals where you could take the place of the dead. So if someone killed my son, maybe he could end our families' fighting by giving me one of his sons, to take the place of the one he killed. Maybe these "wannabes" have come to take the place of what we have lost. Why not accept them? Not make them citizens of our nations, perhaps, but let's take them in and teach them our ways and our languages and help them raise their children to be some of us. Maybe they do have a little bit of Indian blood and it's finding its way back to us. That's what I think. White people assimilated us. Why turn away those who want to assimilate back?
