I speak for my nations .
The primarily unenrolled Eastern wooldands from Powhatan lands where the first pow wow took place to tainos in the states and in the islands to mound building tribes and my southern Indigenous folks from caddo parish where my granny was born .
You see you can't put us on a Rez .
So you kept us in the parish so we would perish
You swept us under the rug so we couldn't claim Indian
Marked us as colored , negro ,mulatto,black and even white.
You kept us as farmers and personal nurses Because we were good for labor right
We even picked cotton with the africans , And I'm just quoting my great granny may she rest in peace she told me she worked with Africans and said they was both called n***ers back in the day and wasn't no offense to it.
After those times were over we are left with nothing but old photos and our oral history through our grandparents mouths and old history books that have European explorers calling us negros and copper colored and people with skin as dark as the devil some tawny some mahogany , hair all textures and still the government will not keep hiding us .
They expect us to have a plastic card that makes us " native American"
If you can't take my documents and records to be enough proof that dates back to 1700s and back in the Americas then you are just ignorant to the fact that WE EXIST.
I'm breaking down walls with this and if you dare try and push your fake history on me you got me F**+ed UP.
Forget bureau of Indian affairs.
Kiss my Indian **s !!
