ricey wild.jpgIf you are a regular reader of this column you must be familiar with my one of my major rants; the Bering Strait Theory. Yeah, I become an absolute monster spewing rage and fury anytime I come across that lie. I wrote some years ago how the white man’s own technology would prove what Indians of Native nations have said all along, that we were put here by the Creator as were the animals, waters and vegetation that truly is all we need to thrive here on Turtle Island.

So when I read that an arrowhead AND a mastodon skull were found close to each other off the coast of Chesapeake Bay I was all excited. Dang!!! We had some badass ancestors hah?! Eating mastodon steaks and all! My imagination is boggled by the idea of hunting mastodons but hey they found a way to hunt them cuz an Indian’s gotta eat right? More articles have also come out recently that we Indians of the Americas are genetically similar and very different from other people who migrated out from Africa.

TAKE THAT and roll it up in a bun you naysayers!!! Jeez I’m smiling just big as I write this.

There is also growing evidence that people can also inherit traumatic memories in their gene sequence and I believe that. I also believe that we, the descendants of the few who were left after the U.S. genocide are stronger because we have to be. BTW, I know some very strong women on Facebook who are organizing and yeah yooz better Wacha!!! Women will be the ones to pick up the ugly mess made by 21st Century idiots and those with their head stuck in the sand regarding climate change and dependence on fossil fuels.

ricey wild.jpgIn another dazzling display of culturally entrenched racism against the First Peoples of Turtle Island Ted Nugent called us “Unclean vermin” who “don’t qualify as people.” He went on to say that there is a lunatic fringe of hateful, rotten, dishonest people that hate happy, successful people. Wow. Then there’s wannabe president Michele Bachman who has a great idea for the Central American children, who seek refuge and a new, better life than their war-torn homicidal country’s can give them. Put them in labor camps says Bachman, then they learn American, work and everybody wins. *choke* SNORT! What?

In the case of Nugent I am the first person to speak up for freedom of speech but that works both ways Teddy boy. You are a vile, stinking, poisonous mass of diarrhea, a hypocritical blowhard who was very willing to take money from unclean vermin who don’t qualify as people. Well money talks but so do disgusting jerks. ‘Nuff about that cesspool of hatred.

Now for Mrs. Bachman; just when I think she can’t possibly say nor do anything to top her already despicable actions she does it again. History would truly repeat itself were this inhuman scheme come to be. Indian boarding schools and the inexplicable horrors that happened to children away from their families are still very much a part of our culture, one we are trying desperately to change. The U.S. agenda to wipe us out completely failed so they killed the Indian to save the man. We were being trained in white man ways to enter indentured servitude and supposed to be grateful for it. Now Bachman would impose that on thousands more little brown children.

ricey wild.jpgSooooo … I was talking to one of my brother’s Mike W. (I have two!) about getting our kids enrolled. Our father is not on our birth certificates and it’s a big deal as I’m sure some of yooz know how difficult it is to prove; and how 'blood quantum’ was created to essentially wipe American Indians out as sovereign nations. In the conversation I told him that when I was a little kid I never wanted to be married and be a cat lady. A moment passed and Mike Wynde sez, “so…you’re Living the Dream.” I know!!!!! I laughed so hard and when I was able to collect myself I said maybe I should have picked something else? Hai! Oh well I’m here now.

“Living the dream” tchuh! I love it!!!

My dear cousin Amanda L. came by my office today, she lives in the Big City so I don’t get to see a lot of her so it’s really special when I do. This past June was Rezberry Daze where enrolled members come up for fun and feasting and hopefully win a drawing for money. I didn’t make it this year but I did see some family so I am happy. Well Amanda and I got to talking; we have both been through some really difficult times in the recent past and commiserated and hugged it out.

ricey wild.jpgMy dear readers it must be very obvious that I love to laugh tell stories and joke and tease. I love other people who do that too and it is they whom I seek and I ignore the haters. This is my world and I get to say who’s in it. That being said there are times that intrude on my contentedness like that awful Lone Ranger movie starring Johnny Depp. At these times I have to reach back to my own memories of being terrorized in every way by the colonials’ descendants.

I’m writing specifically about the recent backlash against rapper Emerson Windy and his “song” and video of him in dressed in redface, eagle headdress and all rapping about “smoking that weed” and using a peace pipe to do it. To be fair, which I try to do even in the face of my extreme disgust at the video, which even used actual pow wow footage in psychedelic graphics. I watched the video of his apology on the Facebook page petition to make him take that disgusting video down.

ricey wild.jpgWoke up this morning, turned on the news and watched the story about the Sterling guy (owner of the LA Clippers) who made racist comments that were recorded and is now banned from anything to do with the NBA. In the same moment I thought ‘good enough for him’ I wondered how is that different from the Washington Red$kin$? Answer: we don’t have that much money AKA power for one thing and our culture is still actively degraded by the willingly ignorant. Grrrrr! I saw Native News Today put the story out on Facebook; sure it will get the word out but beyond that what can we do? It seems the only thing the dominant culture takes notice of is what billionaires want and violence. But … using other means to change the hateful team name isn’t impossible either. Let me think about it some more.
