What is a Real Indian Nation? What is a fake tribe?

Fraudulent groups passing themselves off as tribes have become big business during the past two decades, with more than 200 that claim to be some sort of Cherokee tribe. However, there are only three federally-recognized Cherokee tribes: the Cherokee Nation, the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Many of the would-be Cherokee “tribes” are cultural societies or history clubs, whose members may or may not belong to any of the federally-recognized tribes. Still others are harmful, and some are even created for criminal purposes.” -Cherokee Nation

RCMP descends on Mi’kmaq-led anti-fracking blockade

"RCMP officers moved in early Thursday morning to enforce an injunction against a Mi’kmaq-led barricade that has trapped exploration vehicles belonging to a Houston-based firm conducting shale gas exploration in New Brunswick.
An eye-witness who left the barricade after police moved in said a Molotov cocktail was thrown and that some warriors claimed they were “willing to die” holding the line. The eye-witness also said the RCMP officers moved in with guns drawn.
Miles Howe, a journalist with Media Co-op, also said in a Facebook posting that Molotov cocktails had been thrown at police and that rubber bullets had been fired in the surrounding woods. (…)”

Warriors vs. Cowards. You decide which one is which. Obvious to me >:(

A part of me feels I should share…

It’s been pervading my mind since I heard this teaching and I thought I’d share;
A week ago or so, Mohawk University came into Sheridan to do a teach-in/awareness lecture after school for Idle No More/Many Voices. I went, there was good food and a brilliant set of hosts and they also showed a documentary you should all check out called, The People of Kattawapistkak River, especially if you’ve never heard of Attawapiskak, etc.

However, that’s not what I wanted to share. An elder began to talk about her own history after basically everyone was given an NDN 101. However, she brought up a point I never really gave thought to.  She talked about the moon landing and the subsequent plan to shoot missiles at the Moon to find water under it’s surface. She explained that her community, and others, protested this, and when it happened, and the first man walking on the Moon, too, that life got worse all around the globe.

The idea that we look for water on the Moon, Grandmother, who controls our waters, instead of saving our own water from pollution is preposterous. The idea that looking for “twin” earth-like planets or research how to make the Moon or Mars hospitable for human life is preposterous, too, when we don’t focus enough on healing our own planet. Science is all well and good, but progress for the sake of progress is disastrous and completely out of touch with our relationship to the world around us. That relationship, unfortunately, most of the modern world seems to turn a blind eye to or sneer at.

Just a thought…

How many times do I have to reblog this before the “just and cultured” tumblrz gets that “Native Americans” (there are nearly 500 unique nations/clans/tribes??) don’t have a zodiac. Or do I have to be mean about it, and yell and shout about this kind of bullshit. 
Cuz I don’t like to do that…
