did you have a good thanksgiving? not to bring you down but the people who first helped the whites are the poorest folk around.
the Nations of Lakota the Navajo. the Sioux they live their lives despairingly not knowing what to do.
these people have rich heritage some live off the land. but the rez may not be able to give them ground to stand.
what Caucasian people gave the native folk were the parts unwanted a disgrace! a joke!
some put up casinos to "help" them in their plight but much of this income is wrenched from them by the white!
drugs and "fire water" are a great deal to blame for destruction of a culture which bears noble name!
I have read the stories of Gallup New Mexico of many deaths of citizens of the nation Navajo
because intoxication and the bitter cold have them sleeping under cars or so the stories told.
when the owner of the vehicle gets in and drives away they run over the poor drunkard who dies where they lay.
other grave conditions have these people fraught they have no essentials we don't give a thought.
don't want to be crass don't want to be gross but they have no toilet paper use newspaper! or worse!
there are churches. charity but the folk are proud they have basic dignity this is not allowed.
but you can help their Nations by giving to THEM the worthy tribal leaders will help them once again.
I felt lead to write this I am SO concerned they are the source of inspiration by a great respect they've earned.

Google search for contributing to worthy Tribal areas.
The poorest are the Souix in South Dakota. The Navajo to name just a few.
Land grabs by the whites, etc. are becoming a real problem. The government only contributes to this injustice! The tribal leaders gave our illustratrious president the "honor" of receiving an "Indian" name. Chief Walking Eagle. He was overjoyed! But the irony was they gave him that title because "He is too full of sh*t to FLY!" LOL!
What was done to the Nations is a national disgrace. I am mostly white. But I am 1/16 of the Nation of Iroquois. God has put these people on my heart. And the Nations of the Southwest also. We have a RESPONSIBILITY TO HELP. God is ENRAGED BY THEIR TREATMENT. HE WILL JUDGE US FOR HOW WE TREAT THEM.
Jesus is a God for ALL people. He had dark skin and woolly hair. The bible states this plainly in the book of Revelation.
