Im a canadian native,and im writting about how im sick and tired of be treated like im 3rd class.i got no grips about other ppl coming to my country(my country).day after day my eyes are opened,i was in line at a coffee shop for ten minutes waiting to be served,a asian person also was waiting in line,but this person just arrived and stood behind me.so the server looks past me and asks what this person wanted.well i was shocked,and i think the asian person was also,because we looked at each other at the same moment she was asked.so i said to the server am i invisable to only your eyes.she just walked away.but i wasent about to let it go.i shouted out loud that this place was racist to natives.they tried to buy me off with a coffee.do you believe that!? and i can get along with anyone other colored person,but when you have ppl coming here and practicing there political beliefs,and starting terror cells,and killing there women because they are shown another ways of life,beyond slavery.and calling my a dirty indian as they drive by,things need to change,so i say rise up and say you've had enough and let us be equals to other humans,and not treated like dogs in our own house,time for debate and talk are done.we as native ppl need to take back whats our anyway we see fit.through what we were once proud to be WORRIORS!!! how long are we to sit back and disscuss what were aloud to do and have..another 500+ years??? by then we'll all be extinct.ppl read the history of the white man.they are killers of everything thats scared to native ppl all over the world,language,spiritual beliefs,customs,whole groups of ppl.voice your oppions,this site probley monitored by the,F.B.I our cheep version of them,the R.C.M.P.I dont care what those native killers think about what im saying.this i know if things dont change soon in our countrys,well have our own gaza strips in our own house until its clean.....push a people and people well eventualy push back!!!

I am a part native american and my father is Lakota. I to get tired of how the people in this country are treating the real founders of this country which were the native americans despite the white mans opinion of columbus discovering America. How can our people be treated this way and living in such poor conditions on the pine ridge reservation. I am getting an education in law so that I can become an advocate. The black people have no clue what persecution is. Hang in there, and may the spirit be with you in all your endeavors. I teach my children the real truth my daughter is also part cherokee. I hope to be alive to see the day when the US government acknowledges the truth of the Massacre at wounded knee.

Hello brother, your heart lies where your heart lies.i am part cree,sicillion. but my heart and beliefs are and always well be native.i grew up in the old ways,lived on the trap line with my grandfather until i was 12 years old.they life changed when he passed on,the i was introduced to hell.(urban socity) became a product of the goverment.i dont have a problem with ppl of any race or color.we have the same conditions as all the sister and brothers. in the states on the rezes there.they gave us so called self goverment here,but the goverment really pulled a good one on the ppl here.it was like giving a bunch of greedy kids the power to self destruct.ill try to explain. well the way i see it,is this way...the goverment gave up land and a ton of cash to all the rezes and said self govern yourselfs,without the education and biz sence,and dirty chifes and band councels. it all implaoded. so the good old boys said you cant haddle your affairs.well appoint special ppl to monitor whats going on.so all along it was in the goverments best interests to sit back and watch the gong show,and play hero to the rich white fat cats who vote them in.you brother are doing what more of our ppl should be doing, fighting back with an education! and that i applaude you.i do believe first you gain your feathers with there tactics,and all else fails when theres no more words or false treaties.then you gain them the old way, through battle.but i feel im only one man in a row boat with one orr.i hope and pray that the great spirit well shinedown on the brother and sisters on pine ridge.and make things right and remove the lies out of history and replace it with truth......it is good to have met you. take care of you and yours.....
