"Let's Talk Native..." #398, 2/4/20; The Legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery

"Let's Talk Native..." #393, 1/18/20; Idle No More? Or Idle Too Much?

Seven years ago we had a powerful movement that called for our people to be Idle No More! Since then far too many have grown idle and silent. It's time for us to to get active and support activism. I have no problem with social media activism but less selfies and mind numbing videos and more education valuable info would go along way.

"Let's Talk Native..." #392, 1/14/20; Primitive Culture? Not ours!

Ours was not the "primitive culture." We saw all creation not as man's dominion but rather we saw our place in it. We made commitments to seven generations to do no harm. We didn't believe in an all seeing, all knowing, all powerful white man in the sky who created all things, heard all prayers and created man in his image to rule the world. Nope we had to regress to a primitive culture to buy this bullshit!

But the real topic is calling out what has infiltrated our culture and sorting out what's ours and what's not. Check out our latest video "We Are Not Your Mascots" - https://youtu.be/Z1pQiUl9KX4

"Let's Talk Native..." #389, 1/4/20; Stop Making Our Kids U.S. Soldiers!

Will Trump's New Years fireworks finally convince us to stop our kids from enlisting into the US military? It pains me to hear Native people boasting about our enlistment rates. If we really wanted to defend our lands we would fighting against the US not for them.
