When I barely started truck driving I would pass through New Mexico and Arizona and I would stop at restaurants and I would see waiters and waitresses I thought they were Mexican so I would talk Spanish to them they were actually Native Americans there are like I'm not Mexican
Every time I’m talking to someone online or something and I tell them I live in Oklahoma they always ask if I live in a tp like where did you get the idea that we haven’t advanced technologically in 200 years I’m literally talking to you on a computer right now in my air conditioned house
I myself, a First Nation/Native the indigenous of Canada And America. Us people are treated so unfairly and when people think of us, they think they’re treated unfairly is just something .. these stereotypes or getting out of hand .. Smh; INDIANS!?! really?
I call them Indians sometimes still but that’s only to tell the person I’m talking to who I am talking about. I usually call them native Americans tho cuz there is American Indians and the there’s Asian Indians i ain’t bein’ pc tho lol
I think if native Americans still had all their lands global warming wouldn’t be a thing, or if native Americans were introduced to guns before white man arrived, we would still have all our lands, we were strong fighters, we had nothing but our basically nature maid tools, and whites had guns bullets, life would of been way different.all these cities wouldn’t even be here.just something to think About🤔
oh, if it wasn't for the white man. Native would not have what you have today education technology cars computers condos. House. And you guy don't pay taxes. you guys used to live in tent. Your welcome. You ungrateful people you racist
Isn’t the red skin nickname a historical term? Native Americans aka red Indians, red skin because of the red pigment on their face or the blood on there face when the old immigrants wiped them out. Isn’t it not a racial term but just a historical name they were also known as?
No offense but if you do the research natives are of the same blood as what we call Mexicans. Meaning, like it or not they are the same. Mexicans are natives. The blood line is the same and they are built the same. Anyhow so my question is. Even so called native will argue this fact. It’s truth. Undeniable.
Moral of my story. Your all beautiful the women that is. Just admit it dammit you’re Mexican hahahha 🤣
Sorry my gf an I have debated this for a while. She looks like Pocahontas an she says she’s part native. I say no. Your part Mexican lol.
You girls are so beautiful. So glad I watched this. Those of us who have the small traces of Native blood and culture are so lucky to have it. So grateful to have this glimpse into such a wonderful culture.
Geeezzzz. I love these girls. They're not afraid to use their voice! I can especially understand the headdress. In my tribe, you have to show leadership qualities as well as... showing how tough you are. It's like JROTC. You have to go up and beyond to earn your ribbons and ranks. But it's feathers.
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
