Anonymous asked: how do you feel about natives who are mixed with white?
Isn’t that the majority now? We have to get away from thinking blood quantum is the end-all, be-all definition of Nativeness. Why? It’s a mathematical dead end imposed by the U.S. government to guarantee the extinction of tribes. Bloodlines are important, but we need to incorporate the importance of knowing ones tribal history, culture, language and belief system as well. Connections to one another are vital, we are a tribal people.
