Going through my notes to finish filming some videos.
I have videos ready to be subtitled before I post them. I’m actually really excited about these information videos and hope that they help out everyone who had come to be asking for help on reclaiming their cultures.
I have a bunch more videos planned where I discuss Cultural Appropriation vs. Appreciation and a bunch of other complicated subjects that decolonization and people researching it might take something from. :D I’m excited to start posting these.
I’m also a little nervous of the possible backlash, as these things tend to garner, but my goal is to assist and educate not insult and enforce. So we’ll see if I was able to do this properly.
I’ll also have to remind everyone before, during, and after these videos are posted that they all come from what I learned and a general idea of how to go about these things. I’m certainly not here to be some voice of a nation or anything like that.
Anyways, hopefully I worded these correctly so we’ll see!
I want all of you to know that you are not alone and that it’s not acceptable for people to tell you these things. There is nothing wrong with who you are or what you do.
Currently in our hotel in Texas. Kelvin was allowed off base to hang out with us for the day.
We had a morning song and prayer for our ancestors, in mourning of their torture and death, and thanks for their survival, in body and spirit.
We will be having an afternoon prayer for our family and the spirit of our ancestors for continuing in their protection and blessings of our family today.
I hope everyone enjoys their day with their families or loved ones and people that just appreciate you.
I’m out of town for the week! When I get back, I’ll be posting the videos and taking questions :D See y’all soon and enjoy your week!!
Recording and editing the info videos I’ll be posting on here :D
This upcoming week I’ll be out of town visiting my brother, so I’ll be out and about hiking and all that fun stuff with him.
Once I return, I’ll start posting the info videos for everyone and try to help as much as I can.
Spent all weekend working, script writing, and filming for a few informative videos I’ll be posting on here! Sorry for everyone who’s been waiting for my response to their questions, I didn’t think I’d be as busy as I was.
But I’m working on putting together information for everyone! Hopefully I’ll have it all edited and put together this week!
See ya soon!
To everyone in my inbox:
I’m about to head to bed because I have work in the morning, however if y’all don’t mind waiting for me tomorrow afternoon, I can continue our discussions and everyone who asked me question, wait and I’ll definitely answer tomorrow!
Day 14: Native Artwork
Some great Taíno artwork can be found in my Taíno tag!
Overall the old artworks, paintings, and wood works of early Taíno, at least from what I’ve seen from my own personal ancestors from Puerto Rico, everything had a very rounded and built up look, with exaggerative features and large round facial styles.
Pretty cool stuff!
I suddenly got a bunch of new followers so yes hello!! Hope you all enjoy your stay to both NDN and non-NDN alike!
My inbox is always open if you wanna chat! :D
Day 13: Tribe You Admire
Oh man I have so much respect for the northern plains tribes, and really just any indigenous group of North and South America and Canada. Even with the incredible amounts of cruelty they suffer on a day-to-day basis, they’re still here and still going strong.
Many blessings to the native people who stay strong around the world.
