I've so much wanted to see Chief Arvol Looking Horse in person. I heard he is Hunkpapa Lakota.
Someone tell me if I am wrong. Something on the internet says he is a relative of Chief Sitting Bull.
I trust what people say here, rather than some internet links to that story.

Windrider, I was reading your post on eugenics and sterilization of your family.I saw where people recalling the Klu Klux Klan terrorizing people.Back in the eighties when my daughter was little we crossed a street where a group of Klu Klx Klan was.As we passed by they told my daughter "We like you. You are all white". You see, she had white blonde hair and blue eyes and light skin.Boy,were they wrong about her.She has Indian in her on both sides and now she is married to a black man who is also white and Indian.I am so tired of people treating people bad because of their race.I am embarrassed of the white race being so mean to others.I am embarrassed to have white in me.The Creator gave me a family of many colors and I love everyone of them.Jennifer

Dear Jennifer
I can also sympathize with the situation presented by Indigenous folks and others via white terrorism. Though I have lived with the Chinese for more than a decade; there is also an element of racism of the Chinese towards non-Chinese, however it is usually just remarks, not serious action (in some cases, it has resulted in lying resulting in loss of jobs for the non-Chinese folks)-so I have experienced racism on the other foot, and it isn't a nice feeling, being part white and part Native American.
Ku Kluxers aren't nice people. It might be interesting to know that most of that organization is Co Intel Pro from the FBI who infiltrate it and cause more problems. The same has happened with the IRA in N. Ireland with British Intelligence infiltrating the Provos.
My ex is from Belfast, Catholic sector, so I have been there and have seen the discrimination that goes on.

Whether we're Asian, African American, Caucasian, Hispanic, or Native, the racism of the past has reared it's ugly head again; not that it ever went away. It is still prevalent in our own small communities. Indigenous Cultures world wide are struggling and fighting for their traditional beliefs and way of life. It's a political chess game, that has gone on for centuries, all in the name of ___________(fill in the blank). Gary, Not only indigenous people, but all those who have been conquered and slaughtered by the English. The Irish and Scots will never forget. Asians will most likely only take care of their own. Jennifer, no need to feel embarrassed, we can't choose our parents, but you can be the best Mom for your children.

On another note:

The Teton Sioux Chief Crazy Horse received this vision toward the end of his life:

"He saw his people being driven into spiritual darkness and poverty while the white people prospered in a material way all around them. But even in the darkest times, he saw that the eyes of a few of his people kept the light of dawn and the wisdom of the earth, which they passed on to some of their grandchildren. He saw the coming of automobiles and airplanes, and twice he saw the great darkness and heard the screams and explosions when millions of people died in two great world wars.

"But he saw, after the second great war passed, a time come when his people began to awaken, not all at once, but a few here and there, and then more and more, and he saw that they were dancing in a beautiful light of the Spirit World under the Sacred Tree even while still on Earth. Then he was amazed to see that dancing under the tree were representatives of all races who had become brothers, and he realized that the world would be made new again and in peace and harmony not just by his people, but by members of all races of mankind."

Let us hope his vision is correct. I believe he was a 'together' person and his visions are powerful.

I have experienced racial prejudice,too.I used to teach at Head Start (a government preschool program for low income or disabled children)I became best friends with a black woman there.Our supervisor who was black called us in her office and told us she didn't want us to be friends anymore and said we can't all be white.Emma and I looked at each other with tears in our eyes.We continued to be friends.30 years ago there was a lot of animosity between black and white in the Deep South.It is better now.I have noticed around the Atlanta Ga. area we are being friends now.Martin Luther King has helped that.My daughter made a comment the other day that her and her husband could not be married if it weren't for Martin Luther King.They would have been killed being in a bi-racial marriage.My grandfather told me when he was young that if a black man was caught looking at a white woman they were hung.Jennifer

Maybe someone needs to call in H.K. Edgerton at www.southernheritage411.com
He is an interesting guy. Former Asheville NC NAACP leader. Quite a fellow.

being from the South, i have to agree with docgary on the conintelpro deal, the KKK was ordered disbanded in the 1880s by the people who started it, its original purpose was a police action during the chaotic Reconstruction, a man from Illinois or Indiana started it back up in 1920 or so,this man became a Congressman from that state, i found this out from a book written about 15 years ago called Beware Of The KKK, my great grandfather was a organiser in the orginal, his grandson, my dad hated the new KKK, i read a story from the Lumbee Indians where back in the 50s the KKK came in there, they set up to have a rally and they had a electric lightbulb lit, someone shot out the lit and the KKK gang was surrounded by Lumbee , the KKK didnt know there are plenty of redheaded blue eyed Lumbee

its easy to talk about prejudice when it comes from a white/black perspective .... the KKK .... the aryan brotherhood ....

.... lets look at it from another perspective .... full bloods and mixed bloods .... the indian disease .... think aabout it

i think it boils down to politics with pride and confusion thrown into the mix, to many done in by their own for it to be a racial thing, but the devide and conquer gang working for their own purposes is still there untill the water gets poured on them

NDN, There has always been lateral discrimination here in the East between full bloods and mixed bloods since I can remember. Those of Native/African descent discriminated against those of Native/European descent. Those who were full bloods from the West would come to Eastern Powwows, specifically Mashantucket Pequot Schemitzun, and discriminated against all of us. There was one man who was Melungeon who called us 'shake and bake indians'. It is certainly a disease.

I have heard this before: "shake and bake, wannabees" etc.
It is just one of those things that I wish didn't exist.

Gary, I don't have much to offer in the way of solutions , but this discrimination continues to occur amongst our own people whether we are Federally recognized or not. Another Tribe receives Federal recognition, and all h$#l breaks lose. The Shinnecock's of NY are now Federally recognized, and want to build a casino on Long Island, so the Mohegans and Pequots in CT are up in arms; New Yorkers are their cash cow. Unfortunately, It's all about money and casinos here in the East.

Can you tell me how legitimate this group is? I am already supporting the Lakota Okini
project at One-spirit and don't want to support those who are fakes:

Hi Gary, It took awhile for your link to show up on your previous post. Maybe someone on this forum can advise.
