    I admire Native Americans

    because I like to read about them and learn everything about their culture. I have some Native American blood in me. And I really would like go to a reservation.

    Words Of Geronimo..Chiricahua Apache Chief

    When I was a child my mother taught me the legends of our people, taught me of the sun and sky, the moon and stars, the clouds and storms. She also taught me how to kneel and pray to the Great Spirit for strength, wisdom, health and protection. We never prayed against any person...

    Much Respect

    Considering how much Native Americans have contributed to society and how much they've suffered at the hands of those very people, how can one not respect them. I could go on for hours, ranting and raving about how flat-out wrong Europe and America were/are in their treatment of...

    I Admire Native Americans

    I think Native Americans are incredible and I feel I can relate to them a bit. My pagan beliefs are similar to theirs, especially with regards to honoring and revering the earth and all in it, not just humans. I'm bisexual and I know most Native American tribes honored...

    Words Of Eagle Chief

    '''All things in the world are two. In our minds we are two, good and evil. With our eyes we see two things-things that are fair,...and things that are ugly. We have the right hand that strikes and makes for evil, and the left hand full of kindness, near the heart. One foot might...

    The Logo Picture

    I love this picture.  This is a picture I have on my wall but its a clock.   I found it at a yard sale and I got it for $3.00.  Once I cleaned it up it looked brand new.  Lucky find! Trich

    I believe the Natives had it all under control.

    They lived well, got along with animals and barely had interruptions. I think the world was better off with tribes of wilderness, there was barely any wars as well. Here, someone is murdered everyday, we kill for fun.

    Native American Pride

    I'm not Native American but I love anything that has to do with this.  Their spirit, their pride, their music, their art, love of nature, land, animals, peace and serenity,  words of wisdom.  Even though I'm not born Native American I feel that my soul is

    rather than just partially. Or any native tribe. My European ancestors caused so much death and destruction that I'm ashamed to be "white". I don't believe in European ideals, I don't take pride in my European ancestors. I'm somewhat lost because I'm not full blooded Cherokee so...
