I was wondering if you could tell me your opinion on dream catcher tattoos. Whenever I see them I tend to cringe with frustration, but I'd like another opinion since I'm afraid of voicing out my frustration and coming off as overly sensitive or something

lastrealindians:

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)

Just so you know…

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.

Thank you.

I will always re-blog this

Big Oil Throws Gauntlet; Wants to Frack Sioux Lands Big Oil Throws Gauntlet; Wants to Frack Sioux Lands
Oil and Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) are coming to Sitting Bull’s homelands it would seem as the “Wicks Brothers” (claiming Sioux ancestry according to local talk) have published their claim and intent to do exploratory drilling in Sioux and Corson counties (all of Standing Rock Rez) in hopes they (Big Oil) can one day Frack it. The notice was published by the TetonTimes Wednesday, July 30, 2014; it is included below (Along with the Standing Rock Nation’s policy statement on Fracking) and it states, in relevant part, that Big Oil has secured lease interests in approximatley 200,000 acres in and around the Standing Rock Nation. Fracking, in summary, is the process of injecting poisonous chemicals through layers of rock in the earth’s subsurface to loosen oil reserves and then pump that oil up to the surface. A few people at the top make a lot of money: millions, sometimes billions. The Indians are greased with chump change (as well as North Dakota legislators) and big oil takes over their lands and councils/legislators. The Indians are greased again with chump change as the states keep a majority of the taxes collected on the lands under Tribal jurisdiction. Man camps (mobile settlements housing 100s of drifting outside workers) are set up and hundreds of thousands of dollars of disposable income hits the scene bringing drugs, crime, prostitution and sexually driven abductions, attempted abductions, missing persons and a host of other negative impacts; Industrial 18-wheeler truck traffic takes over your roads (destroying them, causing traffic fatalities and leaving the tribe to deal with it); everyone is put at risk; people die, but die they must as necessary casualties of this machine. This machine is big oil and it is not anything to take lightly. They are coming to destroy our lands, lethally poison our surface and ground waters and destroy the tranquility and purity of our homelands. If we should lay down and take this, what happens when they leave? Who unpoisons the water? Who will stop the inevitable oil-spills like the 1million gallon spill that Mandan Hidatsa and Arikara Nations are claiming was harmless because “beaver dams were able to contain it.” Who will give our children water to drink when they are crying for it? Who should revive the coyotes, the deer as they lay dying, the buffalo, the meadowlark and all life loved by the water? Who will speak for them? Who has lost their way? Who is seeking the way? Who makes the land sacred again after it has been desecrated? Their system is a disease; it is not natural and it is out of balance. Extraction, fiat currency and debt are pure lies; there is no wealth or true life in them. They are coming to destroy our homelands and by extension destroy us. Original peoples, North Dakotans and open-minded Americans who have learned to appreciate the land know full well that fracking has no place here. We must show the world a better way. We are always ready. We need a new spiritual economy now. -LRI

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.
