There is a heated debate going on as Native Americans everywhere spit on American soil with hatred.
When we were truly native, we knew we owned nothing, we needed nothing and we were spirit warriors.
Now, I understand loss. But bitching and whining over something done, is at best immature. It's history and you can't change it. You can only learn from it.
What lead to Natives losing their lands?
1. USA needed resources from those lands.
2. War Occupations and Forts in the 1800's.
3. Troubles or other things wrong with the tribes/lands.
I am a spiritual Sioux, of course my skin is white, stark white, I am one of those people. My hair is naturally brown and blond. I don't look like a native American, but I am one and I am a shaman, and I am not one to get stoned or smoke.
Who listened when they said they would help those lands?
If you truly are native, you know you own nothing in life.
Not land, not your body, spirit or your blood.
But if you make enough noise someone may come over with a grant and make life better for you.
Rural America, The urban cities, The native american grounds, has the same problem:
Greed, insecurity. My parents didn't love me or I have no family. I am poor. I don't have enough food. I don't have enough money or can't find a job.
The heart turns inward and black, hatred spurns onward.
Then you get money and are first in line at Walmart buying beer and Cigs and American Movies and porn mags, and guns and really stupid shit to make your American life more meaningful, yet when your native american days come along, you spit on Americana like it never helped you. Smoke you a blunt, drink a beer or a 12 pack. Waste away your life and don't bathe either. Your mental health barrier is just steadily dropping.
I am Glad I am an American. I don't want to be like any of the rest of you natives.
