Reclaim Native American

Taking "Native American" Back

1 note

I just wanted to pass along this opportunity to anyone that might be interested in doing some volunteering this summer in South Dakota… Please reblog so that it reaches as many people as it can!"Decolonizing Our Relationship With Water

We need to break away from the colonial-culture of greed and destruction, and remember that we are part of a sacred hoop. To decolonize our relationship with water is to explore how we can relate to water in a respectful, non-destructive, non-exploitative way. The purpose of our camp is to begin this process of decolonization as well as learn practical ways to manage water.
Mni Water Sustainability
Mni invites all interested people to join in a water restoration project on the Cheyenne River Lakota reservation. The sustainable community of Tatanka Wakpala (Buffalo Creek) will be hosting volunteers to come and learn about water restoration and sustainable living. Buffalo Creek is located near Eagle Butte, SD (the nearest off reserve bus station is in Pierre, SD).”

Help stop state kidnapping of Lakota children!

Hi,

We are on the verge of ending the epidemic of hundreds of state kidnappings of Native American children by South Dakota’s Department of Social Services. 

Our Lakota children are ten times more likely than non-Native kids to be forcibly removed from their homes and placed in the foster care system.

Your support would greatly help bring our children home!

We have launched the Campaign to Free Lakota Children, with a national petition calling on President Obama to authorize the grants we need to start our own foster care programs, and put us within sight of bringing our children home.

Specifically, we ask that you share our 12 minute video, “Hearts on the Ground” (viewable at www.LakotaLaw.org/Action). It was directed by Kalyanee Mam, who last year won the Sundance Award for best international documentary, for her work on the modern struggles Indigenous face in her native Cambodia. “Hearts on the Ground” explains the tragic reality that so many Lakota grandmothers and parents face, when they have their children illegally seized by the state.

We are close to finally stopping the kidnapping of our children, and hope you will help us to do so.

Sign the petition and watch the video here: http://lakotalaw.org/action.

This the shit I don’t like. I just saw this on one of my fb friend’s page. I know it’s all about football and all, but the redskins need to change their name. Not only is the name offensive. This picture is incredibly offensive to Native american people! This is offensive to me! This is white supremacy in america people.

Vomit.

This video is completely inappropriate, and I can’t find my own words to discuss this because I’m so appalled that this is real.  The rapper alongside Snoop Dogg is Chief, who allegedly grew up on the Six Nations Reserve, and should be ashamed of himself for being a part of this project.  I’m so disappointed that this project made it this far without somebody stopping any of the participants and giving them a reality check.
