Sorry. The real Americans (indigenous) were of copper color as described in books. Before they brought these mongoloid and white folks to participate in paying to be an Indian and given land. Do your research please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wish the term "Native American" was used universally for the native peoples of North and South America. The Inuit people of Canada, the Mixtec of Mexico, the Quecha of the South American Andes, The Yaghan of the Southern tip of the Americas, The Amazonians of Brazil and the Taino/Arowak people of the Caribbean all should have the right to be called Native Americans. Most "Latinos" deny or don't know their native heritage, its what gives us color in our skin! Its sad and shouldn't be this way, with a common event of colonialism in our roots we should all be proud of who we are now and who we where as a people before now in the Americas and in the world.
Weve devolved n now we live in black mold ridden fema trailers because it's illegal to live in a tipi or any structure that isn't up to code and we can't use our own land because it's been divided 1000 times and no-one can get 1000 people to agree on a lease vs the lease the bia the gov't okays automatically if no-one (extended family) can agree. Tipi living is much more advanced than living in one wooden box for 50 years n breathing in 50 Years worth of dust and mold and other pollutants, bad water, bad air, cell phone radiation. Bad food, etc etc etc. Native peoples were 1000000 times more advanced than today's white people. N they weren't pedophiles n murderers and nature destroyers.
Native americans have such a unique face shape.It's not an obvious difference but you can tell it if someone's native american.Their face is usually very beautiful and natural idk what it is but i find it very cool
Banathi Nkehli There really are people in America that really do believe some of these misconceptions...I’ve lived in America my whole life so you would be surprised how many have have also lived here for a long time yet know little to nothing about Native Americans except for what they teach us in history books. I personally even had some misconceptions about them myself, but I’ve learned more about them now...
If Native Americans were part of India, we would have given them all of the below:
1. Free land.
2. Free education.
3. Free health card.
4. Preferential College Admissions, Job allocations, Transport fee reductions.
5. Priority for their children and family in many other sectors.
We still give these to all scheduled classes and tribes in India...
I don't know why USA treats Native Americans differently...
NO ONE has the misconceptions tho...natives aren't even woven in amerocan society like that to create positive OR Negative stereotypes. So...nice try but these only live in YOUR head. Not the rest of everyone else.
I have two questions are there such things of White Indians and are there such things of Indians that grow mustache and beards if someone can please answer this question I would appreciate it thank you
At my school (in the uk) we’ve been learning about the native Americans and I just wanted to say, that I feel so sorry for everything that their ancestors have gone through. Recently we just finished learning about the Wounded Knee Massacre and it actually sickens me to think what happend that day. How disgustingly the US army and settlers treated them. How they destroyed their buffalo, stole their sacred land and slaughtered their women children and elderly. I’m so sorry for what has happened,
And the irreversible damage that was caused.
There homelands?! Lol they didn't own this land the real Redskins did they white. The Redskin Indians was much darker then them and was practically forced to give up there land. And if it's there homelands then how my grandpa owns land and it was passed down by his indigenous ancestors who hue was dark or copper color.
True, Anglo countries such as USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are more of the same. Kill the indigenous natives and whoever is left marginalize them and create artificial poverty, once that poverty becomes crime & drinking, the media points to the poor and blames them to continue to stigmatize the 'other' community, scumbags!

Proud Cherokee here, and I must say thank god for the white people taking our land! Who knows what our land would be like without progress. I know, I know I’m offensive. I’m Cherokee and my ancestors were slave owners... did you know whites weren’t the only slave owners? So black people should be mad at natives too, for that one percentage of slave owners, right?
The term ‘redskins’ is inappropriate and racist. As others say, you don’t see any ethnic people running around the streets wearing a shirt with a white man head on it that says ‘crackers’ . If you disagree that’s not it sis
So.... The real Americans are called native Americans and the impostor take the credit and the land and dare to be proud to be Americans....when they are European Americans (while the word bow down to them)... Funny how history repeats itself everywhere
White Folks my maternal grandmother was Cherokee on her father's side, and her mother was half Seminole , and on my dad's side my seventh great uncle is Sauk Indian Chief Blackhawk, and there's much more than that, I just don't feel like listing it all
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.
