How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? Every part of this earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clearing and humming insect is holy in the memory and experience of my people. The sap which courses through the trees carries the memories of the red man. The white man's dead forget the country of their birth when they go to walk among the stars. Our dead never forget this beautiful earth, for it is the mother of the red man. We are part of the earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters; the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and man --- all belong to the same family. So, when the Great Chief in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy our land, he asks much of us. The Great Chief sends word he will reserve us a place so that we can live comfortably to ourselves. He will be our father and we will be his children. ******************************************************* #polynesian #native #cherokee #choctaw #blackfoot #mexico #mexika #latino #hispanic #aztec #filipino #comanche #sioux #lakota #din é #navajo #photography #naturephotography #nativeamerican #indigenous #starbucks #apache #hawaii #taino #japan #sioux #nodapl #russia #indian #australia

Who are you without your culture? What is a leopard without its' spots? What is a zebra without its' stripes? Culture is what binds you to who you are. Decolonization is not the essence of destroying existing culture, it's the renewal of the culture that has been lost. ******************************************************* #polynesian #native #cherokee #choctaw #blackfoot #mexico #mexika #latino #hispanic #aztec #filipino #comanche #sioux #lakota #din é #navajo #photography #naturephotography #london #indigenous #starbucks #apache #hawaii #taino #japan #sioux #nodapl #russia #indian #australia
