With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, it’s important that we teach our children truth and awareness. The battle against White supremacy and dominant narratives continues with the next generation, and it’s never too early to open up the discussion.

I don’t understand why he would do that. He’s WHITE.  Not even just White.. He was the President of the U.S. Why would he choose to occasionally go around dressing up as a Native American? 
Like, I understand why these little white girls do it today.. They think “Like omg Becky, I want to go back to nature.. and be free.. and simple.. the modern world sucks because [insert privileged response here]. I’m so in touch with Native American stereotypes, I think I’ll try to become one when I go to music festivals”. … but wtf? You’re the president. You don’t get to hide behind the “my ancestors did it. not me” myth. You’re inescapably at the center of bullshit if you’re the president. Soooo what motivates such a person to dress up this way? I know he signed the Indian Citizenship Act, but damn… .

"

I am a modern Lakota winyan. No accent. No paint. No feathers. I’m like no Indian you’ve ever seen. Because I am not a mascot. Or a blockbuster archetype.

Someone dressed like a gothic taxidermist is trying to sell me my own culture. “Your values and beliefs are for sale!” he proclaims in redface. “So is your land. I’ll buy it for you [if you see my movie].” Good trade? Spending $5 million on land worth $14,000 to sell a movie made for $250 million. I’m no good at math. But that seems excessive. Over the top. Not enough…#greatwhitesaviorcomplex.

When Racism knocks on your door, it’ll be riding a pinto, wearing a bird, and wrapped in a Comanche flag.

…Why put $5 million into the pockets of a greedy old white man? Why not give the $5 million directly to the tribe? Why not consult with the people you’re hoping to impact before rushing out and doing what YOU think is best for them? Who knows what’s best, anyway?

And that’s what this is really all about. Natives don’t have control. Of anything…How much we need. What we can have. Where we can have it. Our images are not our own. They belong to those with money. And I want to scream, “THESE IMAGES YOU CREATE HURT ME!” You may not know it, but they hurt you, too.

Ours is a Halloween heritage. A logo legacy. Slot machine sovereignty. Tonto traditions. Ancestry for the price of admission.

Cherokee up and coming WNBA player inspires area Native youth
After April 15, there was never any doubt in Amanda Mink’s mind.Growing up, the Stilwell native played basketball at a recreation center in nearby Cherry Tree. Among the other area residents who played there was Cherokee Nation citizen Angel Goodrich, who was picked in the third round of the 2013 WNBA draft by the Tulsa Shock. The Shock play their home games at the BOK Center, about 100 miles west of the largely Cherokee Adair County community.

"While the institution of informed consent policies has somewhat curbed the abuse of sterilization, it has reappeared in the form of dangerous contraceptives such as Norplant and Depo-Provera. These are both extremely risky forms of long-acting hormonal contraceptives that have been pushed on Indian
women. Depo-Provera, a known carcinogen which has been condemned as an inappropriate form of birth control by several national women’s health organizations, was routinely used on Indian women through Indian Health Services (IHS) before it was approved by the FDA in 1992. It was particularly used for
Indian women with disabilities. The reason given: hygienics. Depo- Provera prevents Native women with disabilities from having their periods, keeping them “cleaner” for their caretakers. Once again, Native women’s bodies are viewed as inherently dirty, in need of cleansing and purification. The Phoenix IHS policy in the 1980s, according to Raymond Jannet, was, “We use it to stop their periods. There is nothing else that will do it. To have to change a pad on someone developmentally disabled, you’ve got major problems. The fact they become infertile while on it is a side benefit.” Jannet argues that Depo Provera helps girls with emotions related to their periods. “Depo Provera turned them back into their sweet, poor handicapped selves. I take some pride in being a pioneer in that regard.” But, he said, while he has no problems using the drug on Indian women, “I will not be going out and using it on attractive 16–year-old girls who one day hope to be mothers” (Masterson and Guthrie 1986)."
