That is why some NDN pretend to be of another ethnicity. I've seen southern ones pretend to be Hispanic and some of the northern pretend to be Italian or French. eek!!!
It's sad they do that. They need to stand proud and straight and give 'em the stare of death.

Darlene here, just finally joined Topix but had to change my username since it already recognized me from all my previous posts.
That is a disgrace, and I feel terrible for Indians who have endured this right on and on. It blows my mind that people actually do this to that woman and it sounds to me like they think themselves so superior that they can show HER how the dance goes???

I live very close to Cherokee, NC, and I wouldnt dream of carryin' on like that when I go over there to visit and buy jewelry or just 'be there'.
Showing anything other than respect is worthy of a butt-kickin'.
No, they're not showing her how to dance. They are intentionally making a mockery of Natives. They grab items off the shelves or walls to use in their dance - items that cost hundreds of dollars.

Sure it's a disgrace, but it is what it is.

you can't do blackface comedy. now is it 'kosher' to squint your eyes and buck your teeth out and 'speakchinee', but watch anytime a Native, wearing maybe as little as a choker necklace and a jean jacket walks into a crowded room. inevitably someone will holler 'hey chief' and do a childish warhoop, with the handslapping the mouth routine. the apalling part is just how many people laugh at this. when objection is raised, they always say,' aw he didn't mean anything by it! it was just a joke!'
even my closest friend made a similar mistake. we were sitting in a coffeeshop talking up a couple of pretty japanese girls who's english was almost non-existant. Mose was trying to tell the girls that I am Native. he did the same thing, and the girls said,'ohhh, yes. we get it.' I lost interest right there. we were finishing our coffee and he was asking the girls if there was a part of Tokyo that blacks hung out in. he kept asking and they weren't getting it. finally I said,'he's asking if there are ghettos in tokyo.' they got it. when the table got a little quiet. I nudged Mose and told him not to do 'that indian thing' anymore. we're still friends, and any time I see him we have a drink together.
Wow. Dont get me wrong, I myself am only a thirty-second indian, and most people might not recognize me as part indian and do anything like this to me.
BUT, when I hear terms like 'chief' and 'squaw' or 'redskin', especially as putdowns towards indians, I really get touchy.
I truly despise that mentality.
My family used to visit churches in Cherokee( mom and dad still do) and when I was fifteen, a guy there had a crush on me. The (white) one I was 'going steady with' at the time got soooo mad he yanked on my arm outside the church and said:
" Is that what you want?? A bunch of snotty nosed half-breeds running around??"
Whoa. That made me furious!!
I let him know REAL QUICK he was talking to the WRONG GIRl like that. My family was full of 'em!!
Lot's of that attitude is still out there in the white community (among others) and I hate the very sound of those words. Always will.

Didn't steal anything from me.

And, ermm, yeah, i know when you do it intentionally. Been a couple of times over the past year and a half-ish that you were damned lucky to be as far removed from me, geographically, as you are.

I know, but sometimes when there's a mob mentality coming down. One sometimes likes to fade into the background for safety. Maybe that is why many choose to remain of the rez? IDK...

Just that sometimes, to be able to work with some societies and cultures(especially in the past), people will tone down differences to be accepted. It is a tragedy.

was looking at the list below, and saw 'is there hell after death'. I say, only if I get stuck with a bunch of 'christians'. not Real christains, who follow the precepts of the religion, but know-it-all jackasses who misread everything since learning how.(how? scrambled) I'm talking about idiots who can quote the bible, chapter and verse, but don't understand what they are quoting. things that were so important that they were mentioned Three times, like 'judge not, that ye be judged'. these idiots point fingers all day long and tell Other people that they are breaking 'gods law' then they proceed to tell you how to live. they say,'you are wrong' and 'you have to be like this' or,'the bible says you have to live this way!' when in fact, aside from the ten commandmants, the bible only says a Good christian (or person) would do things this way. I only bring this up because whites used religion to divide and conquor the peoples indiginous to this lad.(or is it indigent? well, it boils down to the same thing. we were indiginous, and now we're indigent.)
and Now, the peoples who left europe because of religious persecution, want to do the same thing all over again. they want to turn church doctrine into law. don't know about you, but this scares the shit out of me.

It is, indeed, that.

All very good points, friend!

And, i believe it is indignant, indigenous indigents. I'm pretty sure that's correct.

There is no assumption in your justifying statements that someone else may have eventually invaded, Native people may have forged an empire and attack Europe or Africa or there was more land than Native people could use. Those are all justification statements to say that the invasion was correct.
Correct, maybe, inevadable yes.

I smile everytime I see a new casino going in somewhere. It's poetic justice that as the white devil used alcohol to debilitate and deconstruct the native american, so to now does the native american reap monetary reward at the expense of the weakness of whites for gambling. I love the irony.

Native Americans should get free everything in my opinion, because they got screwed out of everything, and european disease almost wiped them out. It's justice.
