have you?... no matter what persecution or attempts to bleed our bloodlines dry, we have prevailed. as long as nature exists, we exist. believe this. i see the planets decline into self-destruction mirrored buy the survival of those who belong to the land. yes we can say what ever we want as to why the world as it is today but it really comes down to the people who inhabit the land. upset mother earth and she will destroy us all. it is the fine balance of wrong and right. im no angel by any means but i keep my peace with her. everyone should for thier, and thier futures sake. what we all look to today as freedom is nothing but a shade to cool us off from the heat of life. real freedom is the ability to do as nature does. we all should reflect what the world has been and what we can do to keep it this way. natives of all the world are and have always been free. everyone has always been free. it is those who choose to reside in the shade that cannot ever be free. modern day makes it hard for all of us to live in total peace. its easy to say forsake all that is modern but the roots have been long lost. only those intune with nature now will survive. i honestly would not be one. i am able to live in the forest in all seasons with no complaint. hunt, forage, survive. i learned when i was a child and continue to take a month of my life every year to this day to live in nature. yes on a reserve, and yes near people but i make my own. the only thing that i can honestly say that i bought while on these self descovery journeys is packs of zigzags and canned tobacco. but i too have been 'americanized'. can i get some fries with that ppl? freedom is all around us. take a breath, close you eyes and listen. you are free. it can almost be related to the saying, "it isn't illegal till you get caught." heh.. you can do what ever you want, think what ever you want, do what ever you want. it is the consiquences that i believe we all fear. can you imagine giving up your car, your home, your cable tv, fast food, and all that makes us moden, to live in nature and have to fend for yourself; to live life to its fullest with nature. imitate nature and how its energy flows and that is true freedom that no one can control or lose. well enough gab... responses, or rebuttles?

shout out to my natives across the world from a meer maliseet blood.

the river flows deep but not deep enough to be lost; come in, bathe in the life blood of our beloved mother. leave all behind but the energy that you possess; come out empowered by what made all; live on the land as one til you become the land. forever this will be; forever it has been.

just too bad that these life lines around the world are now so polluted, you wouldnt think to jump in unless you were current with your shots or wanted a severe case of internal a$$ itch from heavy pollution.

ohh... and has any1 ever thought about the validity of the thanksgiving holiday? i am a native from new england. where did the first settlers land? what time of the year? natives in the new england area have always to my knowledge had a festivity after 'indian summer'. this was the time that the leaves turned and it started to get cold. this festivity was held as a last fest before the winter struck and things became more survival orientated. has any1 ever looked into the credit due for thanksgiving? i always wondered and any1 i told was highly interested except teachers in school.
just 2 more cents.

Kind of slighty off, yet still on topic here, but I HAD to post these feelings, sorry ~c(o; `,0

I definatly support the words of "it's in your heart", I have many different "blood lines" in my human body. Three that are supposed to be American Indian, but my spirit/soul/heart are all mixtures of "aborigional tribes". My life consists of technology being all around me, and there's plenty of "American"-ized things about me. However, my religion is a now alternative non-biblical Christian religion that origionated from a nomadic tribe in Africa, I as well practice/live Capoeira (Google it "What is Capoeira?"), I also feel pain when mother earth is mistreated. I believe in balance on this earth and that Mother Earth doesn't care if you take, as long as you share and give back. The only time I feel truely at home is when I'm in nature, reveling in it's beauty and wonder, feeling the beautiful vibes it gives. There are very few other times I do feel at home, but they all involve "primitive" things.

One of my most favorite experiences in life was a time when I went hiking with two of my best friends in a nearby park, we climbed a small rock face above a river and hiked throughout the woods. When we were deep within the woods, we saw a small group of does, walking through the woods with one young deer with them. My heart raced and all I could do was smile, that's absoulute beauty right there.

My point of rambling on about all of this is that I believe (and my religion even speaks of it as well) and always will believe, that the human race was origionaly supposed to be united in all races/cultures/religions/technologies/languages to make this world whole. Look at all of these things: Spirituality, morality, wisdom, warriorism, that comes from Native North America, Native Africa, Native South America; awesome martial arts, wisdom, warriorism, and philosophy, that comes from Asia; the technology that comes from europe.

Imagine all races/ideals/religions/belifes/moralities/technologies coming together to co-exist in this world with harmony. Humanity would be THE race, instead of being a bunch of races. Humans being divided by their differences and blood instead of coming together BECAUSE OF them, completely ties into our theories of conspiracy. The greatest way to conquer is to divide, and that's a fact. I mean what would be more convient, defeating 50 countries of a million one-by-one while they're not in co-existance, or fighting a world of 50 million people united together? (I know the correct number for humans is past billions but this is just an example)

The government can't tell you who you are, remember the rule of HONESTY that was posted in these lists of values in the religious aspect. Be honest to yourself, find out who you are without anyone lying to you and telling you who you are. No card or certificate can declare who/what you are, you're a human being, a creation of divinity just as everything else nature makes is.

The American Indians's aren't any less free than the people of the United States, and the people of the US aren't that free to begin with. Just remember that natives ARE mostly more free than most "civilized" countries, the origional form of denying ignorance comes from "aborigional" people. They didn't know any other races 'cept the "red skinned" people existed, and even when the white man came over the natives treated them friendly. They were open-minded and wanted to learn of their white brothers, and wanted to see how they may be able to benefit from them and vice versa. Same thing happened to the slaves they took from Africa, and just as the American Natives they were betrayed. They fought against/refused Europe's "civilization" after learning what they were really about, and denied the ignorant bull the Europeans were trying to feed them and force them into.

Freedom is about living your life without restricting yourself because of consequences you might be afraid of, it's all about having no absoulute attachment to something that could hold you back in life. The only things you should be afraid of doing is harming yourself, other "innocent" beings, and nature. Life with wisdom and morality, without being chained down. I'd say they are far more free than most people in the US sometimes eh?

(Sorry if this post just seemingly rambled on without a point, I hope I made one within this long post (o; `, )
