When non-Natives get dream catcher tattoos it’s a form of cultural appropriation.
Its kinda cheesy.
Dreamcatchers catch negative dreams that burn up in the daylight.
So the way I see it is sorta like inviting negativity because it will get caught in the strands.
I know some native’s have that tattoo, But it doesn’t change what I think about it. (as an Anishinabe whose culture it originates from)
I prefer to be friends with all, Allies with none!
I’m old enough to know blindly committing to an alliance with some individuals leads to them forcing agendas forward that cause more harm then good.
If I decide to align with someone it isn’t a I’ll come forward and just mill about doing nothing that effective, No nothing like that. I’ll decide what level of force is needed and if required call the entire wolfpack in until you’ve achieved your goals or are established enough that I’m no longer needed.
Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.
I will always re-blog this
What if they reboot the classic star wars trilogy.
But made Leia the farm girl from Tatooine, And Luke the prince from Alderaan?
As a Native American I have a lot of angry thoughts and things I want to say to these white people protesting at the borders of the United States and Mexico. They say “go home” but they need to remember who’s land they stole, who’s people they raped, killed, pillaged.
