I also have a continuing interest in what has happened to people of African descent around the globe, whether they wound up there by chance or by choice...

But aren't we getting away from what brought us to this particular
forum?

The present day rifts between various mixed bloods on this continent isn't our or their faults...

And whatever the nature of the past conflict between our various forebears, the only thing that's going to heal these rifts is better understanding and knowledge as to what the other is going thru...

Ditto some mutual support...

Take care...

Peace...

Hmmm...I've recently seen your name at other sites, though no posts (maybe overlooked them). Thing to do, is that when bored, learn to mingle. There's an entire world out there.

My dear, I've been posting on various boards for awhile, and this particular one for over two years...

I've also e-mailed you more than once...

The purpose and intent of this board was and is to heal old wounds and bridge the gap which has become a chasm since the Indian Wars
and the end of chattel slavery in the U. S.

Many of us so-called black indians have been literally scattered to the four points of the compass...

Many of the descendants of the brave warriors of the past either
agreed to be confined to the reservations--or by the bluecoats
bayonets wound up being exiled there anyway...

So even though some mixed bloods also followed them others didn't...

And, years later, what some did ages ago or didn't characterize
why some of us don't know many of them and visa versa...

I mean, wasn't it you who posted that series of articles which
presented an overview of red/black relations over the years?

It was and is good scholarship...

It is also humbling and sobering given what some of us are trying to accomplish, here and there...

Yes, I applaud those natives who supported the Civil Rights
movement, and those blacks who stood with the Oglala against
the awesome local/state/and federal forces organized to deny their
right of self-determination at Wounded Knee II...

Had they not been aided by white and black allies the outcome may well have been another bloodbath...

Thank the Creator of All Things there wasn't one...

But, for the majority of us, we come into contact with native
folk, be it as individuals or on the Internet or at the powows,
and we're strangers to each other...

Some wonder why we bother to even attend the powows...

We wonder why they do...

But didn't we have this same conversation a year or so ago?

My dear, start a thread on anything you choose, but I believe
that you're out of touch with what this forum is all about...

And probably you would find a more receptive audience if you
reposted stuff on delphi's African-American forum...

Again: We here aren't discarding our African roots just to
identify ourselves as 'indians'...

Instead?

African-North Americans have a bad tendancy to believe their sense of identity should simply be a reflection of being in this nation and
on this continent--rather than realize and recognize that
the African identity has also reflected our forebears'
acceptance of the DIVERSITY which has reflected the peoples
of the African continent for ages...

So, yes--it is both important and relevant that I embrace my
Cherokee and Chactow roots, but when it comes to my African
roots I realize and recognize that I'm a part of the Black
Dispora, i. e., both in this hemisphere and around the globe...

What Brother Rashidi is attempting to do is to challenge
white racist mythology with verifiable facts...

And what is also needed is more sharing of the facts with our
peoples outside of the internet...

That way it would be hard to justify being gangers and rollers
once it is realized and recognized that our african forebears
were hardly primitive savages...

Instead?

Some of the originators of civilization on this planet...

But I don't expect to read such in history books which are
meant to make the descendants of other primitive savages
seem and sound like folks they aren't...

White men still speak with forked tongues...

So let us continue to dispute it with the truths we do...

Regardless: Please accept my comments et al via the spirit
they're being sent to you...

Take care...

Peace...

I do not recall ever receiving any email from you nor do I wish to receive any email from you. If you care not to post to my information that is your right, just as it is my right to post about information I feel is relevant to black people and black indians and indians at this site.

I regret your decision...

But I will respect your privacy...

Regardless: Just because you choose to duck and dodge dealing
with the issues and problems I've presented won't make them
just go away...

I'll just continue to start threads and kick it with folk who remember what this forum was meant to deal with from the very
beginning...

Take care...

Peace...

Yes, please do not stop posting your articles/opinions that so many of us find so enlightening and informative. I would miss reading your postings and I know I am not alone in my feelings.

Love and Peace,

Loretta Herringchoke

That made me feel really good to hear your feelings about me trying to "feel" (smile) my way about this site. I know so very little and appreciate the opportunity to learn from everyone here. I was not raised indian and it makes it hard to understand the thoughts of others sometimes, even as I endeavor to make myself understood.

It is good being here.
