I would like to be part of the Cherokees but they do not want me to be a part of them.I talked to them as of matter of fact, a lot in my life time.They tend to shun you if you are an outsider.They are very clannish because you do not live with them.I have lived in the Smokies and mountain white people are the same way. They will not even look at you when they talk to you like you don't exist.They will not help you unless you have lived there all of your life. It hurts me.I am human, too My grandmother was the same way if she did not know you. I do understand them because of how the white people have done them.They like people, but also are very private and they need a lot of space to themselves.I am that way. And there has been so many people claim Indian ancestry, who are not.They don't know who is telling the truth and who is telling a lie . I want to be a part of them and I am Indian by blood and Indian in my ways of thinking and I have never thought like a white person.I always thought something was wrong with me.Why didn't I think like most white people . I was at a PowWow in Sept.2011 at McIntosh Park in Whitesburg Ga. {named after Creek Chief McIntosh who lived there.}The Lakotas were there.I talked with one of them and he told me that the Cherokees had lost a lot of their customs and traditions and that they asked the Lakotas for help with it.That made me sad. I really want to help the Indian people even if it is not the Cherokees. Jennifer

ndn posted: 'If we create change from within our own families and communities.... change will overtake ALL nations.' That's it in a nutshell. I've always said, it only takes one person to plant the seed of change. I've received a lot of flak from that statement, from those who tend to be of a political mind set. Sometimes, it only takes a few words, spoken from the heart, to make one think. I've seen positive change happen, from the teen gang member on the street, to the mother who prostitutes her 13 yo child, to a woman who is being abused along with her children. It only takes one person, who is willing to speak out. It only takes one voice.

Everyday I talk to people at my job.I am a herbalist.I help people with their health, with their physical ,spiritual ,mental needs.I help them the best way I know how.I asked God for that job so I could help people.He gave me that job and gives me the knowledge and the understanding to know what is wrong with them.It is very rewarding to help people.I feel like I am doing my part in my community also I speak up on issues of the injustices that are going on in this crazy world.I love this job so much I wouldn't care if I didn't get paid except I have to pay bills. Jennifer

this is why i tell many that ndn's themselves participate in the genocide against thier own people. we must stop this immediately by helping our own families...our own communities.

it is sad because many euro americans and europeans think that if they "help" us, then we will be stronger. it was a mixture of ndn's accepting european ways and the acts of the europeans that have created our problems. simple as that .... now is the time to withdraw within our own communities and learn our languages, our culture, and our traditions. as ndn people, we must start to with hold our ways until we become seperate nations again...not euro - ndn's.

it is easier to take small steps to achive a goal then to run headlong towards the finish line without seeing where you need to go. we can all sit and whine about this problem, but until we accept the fact that pan indianism and "being one nation" does not work, we will continue on our own path of destruction.

remember.... be yourself...everyone else is taken .... i saw that on another forum by a member there .... it has stuck with me for many years.

Thanks for sharing for everyone. My view is that all peoples were migratory and moved with the seasons like the birds especially when all of the land was connected.

I can take Atlantis and the Obsidian is also important to me.

Here is some more information on the site.

The author of the article Richard Thornton has written a book on the Archaeological Site 9UN367 and the evidence of the immigration of Mesoamerican refugees to North America. It will be available from the publisher in early January 2012, and is entitled, Itsapa . . . the Itza Mayas in North America. The book includes over 250 full color, virtual reality images and photographs, including pictures of identical Maya agricultural terrace sites in Chiapas, Guatemala, Campeche and Belize. Indiana film maker, John Haskell is also producing a documentary film on the Maya diaspora.

Craig I am Lakota but could no more return to Pine Ridge and fit in as I did 30+ years ago. I am still Lakota and honor my people and my blood everyday. Someday I may return but I can never go back to being what I was as a child and understand fully what my relatives have lived, just as they can't understand fully the path my life took. Great wrongs have been done to all of us and continue to be done. There is more than enough pain to share on both sides of this coin. ndn is correct in that the First Nations contribute to our own genocide whether it be Urban NdN rejecting Reservation NdN or Full blood rejecting mixed blood. It has been my experience that if you be who you are and honor the blood and anscestors that acceptance is really not that hard trust is something that was once given freely but now must be earned. What we do not need to solve these problems and bring healing are more Europeans contributing to the division with their enlightenment.

Craig, first to answer you question about my teeth. I spent nearly 1/3 or my life putting posions into my body for what I thought was fun. These posions sucked the vitimans and minerals out of my body and I have had thousands of dollars of reconstructive repairs. Unfortunally, I have very few natural teeth left. Some hard lesons I had to learn.

Second, I have spent much time in the Asheville Nc area. All of the peoples are very "clanish" as you said. This is only until they get to know you and your intentions.

Whacko, ELIAKIM, atlantis is the story of the Minoan civilization based on the island of Santorini, in the Agean sea. It was swallowed by the sea after the volcano erupted. The eruption blew the island apart leaving maybe only 20% of the land mass. this eruption caused the tidal wave that sucked the water out of the sea of reeds. this tidal wave touched modern day isreal, egypt and most of the shore line in the med sea. This is in the geologic record. It was no where near the amerikas, no matter how you reassemble the continents. One of these days you will get back on your meds and come back to reality and leave the delusional world far behind. Have you ever studied history? I mean the factual history, not fantasy.

Pahanna, you are correct in saying the Shawnee not only lived near the Catawababut traded with them . Shortly after the Iroquois began trading for firearms from the dutch, french and english, they drove the Shawnee out of the Ohio Valley homelands. The many villages of the Shawnee became wide spread. Some living near the Catawaba, some in north western Tennesee, and some in Alabama. and even the big bend area of north west florida and some in Deleware, some in virginia . the swanee river in florida is named after the Shawnee nation and some in Deleware, some in virginia. After the whites began settling in the ohio valley lands, the other Aglonquin nations, Wee, Kickapoo, Miami, and Winneabago offered the Shawnee nation the ohio valley lands west of the River, so the Shawnee would be a buffer between themselves and the whites.

Flip or anyone else if you need some help on finding your Indian ancestors I will be glad to help ,free of charge.Since it is hard to trace Indian ancestry I can't guarantee I will find them but I will try.Email me with as many direct ancestors that you know of and where they lived and birth dates and death dates if you have it.You don't have to have me do this, it is up to you.I have been doing genealogy since the 1980's.It took me this long to find mine,but I am willing to help.I found my white ancestors,pretty fast. I just apologized on another subject.I want to apologize again for trying too hard to prove my Indianess.I am just excited over it because it is still new to me.I HAVE A CULTURE and I am going to do my best to honor it. Jennifer

I was just wondering why people have a hard time believing that the First Nations aboe the Rio Grande were incapable of building great civilizations. There are many examples of great societies all over this land. From Cahokia, to the Black Warrior comples, Poverty Point, the 3 great cultures of the Ohio River Valley, and The Hohokam. The Calause, Poverty Point cultures had large thriving populations without farming.

I have been learning a great deal about Cahokia and the IL. Nations of that time. Although how accurate the puzzle is being put together is questionable. Two things stand out #1. Cahokia was a very large civilization #2 The trade through the Ohio valley and up and down the Mississippi and MO. Rivers was well established. Not a bad feat for primitives that could not escape the stone age according to the grave robbers. I found a journal a while back that was put online that described how one American settlement was founded in Central IL. that talked of the French and a Small settlement of Miami coexisting side by side and how both the french and Miami were slaughtered by the Catholics that wanted to settle the area. Now I have to dig through all of my links to find that one it was a very graphic read.
I wonder if news of events like this had been able to reach the western and southwest Nations and a understanding of how brutal and decietful the invaders were, if the great chiefs of those days could have been better informed and mounted a better resistance knowing they were being promised vapor and nothing more.... Something we will never know.
I find it disturbing that so called scientist look not for facts but for facts that fit their theory and exclude any evidence that does not support the conclusion they want to reach. So much has been lost both in oral history and in the written history that even with artifacts in hand ot is all speculation as large portions of our indiginous history has been lost for all time.

Stormsrider did you see what I wrote on Cherokee Sequoyah in Honor your Elders and how they destroyed his village. It was despicable and unreal.These people called us savages and they were the real savages.It makes me sick.Sometimes I cry thinking about it.I cried for a week when I found out some of my family was in Trail of Tears.This is not to toot my horn.LoL It just broke my heart.I read some about the Cahokias,too, after I read what you wrote.The only mound site left of the Cahokias has been home to a gambling hall,a subdivision,an airfield,and a pornographic drive-in.So much for being a sacred land.I'm sure there are a lots more like that.What a shame! Jennifer

Hau kola,
there are all great posts here, When i meet Thomas Baniakia sr. and his son speaker of the Hopi and the speaker of the Lakotha Millo Yellohair, at 1992 World uranium hearing in Salzburg Austria (Mozart birthplace, even known from Sound of music), it was a great week for me, in the first time in my live there i participatet in traditional ceremonies, (ceremonie of the cirkle) even i had the honor to meet Floyd red crow Westerman, who song his great music. It change my live, I have the words of Chief Dan George, in my heart and Thomas told me if i want to do something, i was born here, so stay here and make wishes. I follow his words and saw the film "the lions roar" about the 16 Karmapa, and as he meets the Hopi and even he could talk with them, Tibetain and Hopi. Since them i praktice the Vajrajana Bouddhisme and i try to work on myself, not harm others change myself to be a better human beeing.
Thank you very much.
do shakee

Well, Mike, the french, the exception being the missionaries, were teh least evil of all the invaders. All the french really wanted was trade. The english and the spanish were the worst of all, they wanted to own land and enslave the nations. By the time of the french, the nations in teh southwest had already met the spanish, and knew their evil intent.

The downfall of all the nations was allowing themslves to be pawns in the european game of global chess. They thought they were playing the europeans as pawns int eh intra tribal warfare. The Abasaroke knew what was going to happen, but they still sided with the amerikans, as did the Ree and Pawnee, against the Lakotah, Cheyenne and Arapaho.

It is the same with egyptologist. They can not fathom the idea that the egyptians were preceeded by another unknown civilization. Dr. Shock, a geologist with Maryland University, dates the sphynx as 8,000-10,000 years old. This is based on the erosian, which he believes was mad e by water. The last time that area of africa was wet was 8-10,000 years ago.

Quoting Flip: 'The downfall of all the nations was allowing themslves to be pawns in the european game of global chess.' You couldn't have said it better. The Haudenosaunee/Six Nations, Mohegans, Pequots, et.al. all took sides with the British and French, splitting up their own people, and fighting against each other as well. Our people here in the East, early on, held back the English for as long as we could, then came The Pequot War, and the chess game began.

My husband has wondered why didn't all the Eastern Nations come up against the Europeans as one to stop them in the beginning after the fight was on.He said they would have won.The only thing I could think of was too much territorial differences between the Nations.Jennifer

Kwe, Jennifer, I'm posting a shortened version of info. leading up to the Pequot War. I can't vouch for accuracy re: this article, though.

As you can see, it was all a chess game, tit for tat, retaliations, trade restrictions, land encroachments, and the end result.... massacre.
