I was reading through some of the latest posts, and the gang "stuff" is so ridiculous, it makes me angry.
Occassionally when I voice my opinion on here, I have a guy who use many different names say:
"You don't live on the reservation, and you're probably not even Native American."
Well, MY history denotes that Natives DID NOT fight and die to LIVE on the reservation.......just the opposite. My people didn't leave South Carolina and travel to Oklahoma; they headed North to Illinois. Living on the reservation WAS NOT/IS NOT the grand prize........and NOW we see why.
I visit once a year, and have done so since I was a child. NOTHING has changed, and that was by design many, many years ago when Natives were forced on that land. To denegrate those who chose a different life is outlandish. My family blood has not deminshed since deciding to live in 2010 and not 1872.
As for the gangs, when a person runs out of reasons to fight oppression, they generally fight each other: Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, Natives..........But to think the social ills on the reservation are so prevalent that even illegals have surpassed the lifestyle of the Native American, calls for reform.
You're living on the reservation? So what? That's like living in the 1800's, because little has changed. If anything,it has gotten worse.
Look in the distance. If you see a bulldozer, that's because the governemnt is storing nuclear waste nearby. If there is too much alcohol, that's because folks are trying to numb the pain. If houses are sub-standard, that's because those houses were not built to stand beyond 50 years. If people appear hopeless, that's because you're not expected to fight for justice. If you're afraid to seek life off the reservation, that's because you have been WHITE-WASHED.....fear controls people. If the power companies are disconnecting your power in the winter, that's because you don't know THE LAW.
A white guy told me to "go back to the reservation and get drunk." I responded by saying: In MY country, America, I can live anywhere I choose and get drunk, but I don't drink.
My point is: If you're living on the reservation, LIVE like it's 2010 and not 1872

About the gangs on Reservations! The young ones are falling for an old conspiracy which dates back decades. The whites are responsible and did conspire to corrupt young Native Americans into thinking that they mean them no harm. Google or youtube "chemtrails conspiracy" to educate your young ones on and off Reservations, about exactly what the whites are doing. It is the young ones who are at serious risk. If they don't wake up to the cowardly act, they will allow their young ones to fall for the actions of the whites who have repeatedly told the entire world that they want Native Americans to disappear. Educate the young ones about the cowardly act going on in the sky in order to wake them up. A gang is not the right place to be in now. Not when a cowardly war is being waged on the Cheyenne's Cheyenne Agency Reservation, all other Native American Reservations, and other locations where large numbers of non whites live.

Law of the internet. It is wise to not be quite in a time as this. I keep warning people about chemtrails conspiracy and will continue doing so. That means do not protest, for if you do you will tell exactly what you want to occur. Native Americans and all other non whites, have two choices. They can take action to prepare for survival, or they can let the whites exterminate them the cowards way. Young man, out your grave to become a brave man. You know what that represents!

so we live in america. and we can choose to live anywhere we choose. just so happens, alot of our people choose to live on the rez. thats their decision. some of us choose to live off the rez. thats our decision. without an education, it is very hard to exist off the rez. there is alot of competition for the jobs, out here. but given the lack of jobs on the rez, you stand a better chance of finding something off the rez. a job is a job.

When the government financially supports the people, the people lose their pride and sense of self. I have seen many a reservation and the homes and property are in very bad shape.Nobody cares enough to keep their homes neat and their yards free of old non-running cars. It seems as long as they get their monthly check and don't have to work, they just get drunk and blame the whites instead of putting on their big boy/girl pants and take care of business. I watched a special on tv about a certain tribe that is not recognized by the government so they don't receive government money and they have a beautful, well taken care of reservation. They have self respect and, it seems, no alcohol or drug issues...
