Group Info

Hello All! This is a group dedicated to the history and presence of Native People's today. Also, to inform the public about various historic events, and the treatment of the American Indian culture in many public places (schools in particular). We come here with great respect and courtesy to all. You do not have to be of any American Indian descent to join this group, in fact our goal is to spread knowledge to those who may not be as aware about several topics involving the Native American peoples. We reinforce the curiosity and furthering knowledge for those of any background, you are accepted here.
We come here with a message. A message that spreads knowledge and presence of the current struggle and past of the Native American people's to those who may not be as aware of the subjects we touch upon.
The stronger the force, the stronger the impact. Together.

-Jen

By now, you’ve probably heard about the Dakota Access Pipeline, or DAPL. Native American tribes and others have been protesting the 1,172-mile pipeline that would carry 400,000 barrels of crude oil daily through multiple states. They note the pipeline will disturb sacred burial sites and pollute the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s drinking water in the Missouri River.

That’s right – the Standing Rock Sioux’s only water source will be endangered by this pipeline.

They have put their bodies on the line to stop the construction and defend their water and their way of life. The police brutality and violence in response to their peaceful demonstrations has been outrageous, and must not continue.

There has been a groundswell of folks speaking out on social media and in person, but the oil company has not budged.  Now, it’s time to speak in the only language the oil company understands: money. We have to put our money where our mouth is and withdraw our money from the big banks that are funding this pipeline, including Wells Fargo, Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup.

Join me by pledging to withdraw your money from these big banks until they agree to:

1. Divest from Energy Transfer Partners, the parent company of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

2. Pressure President Obama to halt construction and put a stop to the human rights violations against the Native Americans at Standing Rock.

When you go to your bank (Bank of America, HSBC, UBS, Wells Fargo, Chase, Citibank, etc.), film yourself withdrawing money telling the bank that you will take your business to Federal Credit Unions until they divest from Dakota Access Pipeline.

After filming your #BankExit, post it to social and challenge your friends to do the same! Tweet your video: barackobama WellsFargo chase citibank HSBC_US #BankExit bit.ly/2ffFr01

Demand President barackobama call for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which will effectively put a stop to this human rights violation against the Native Americans at Standing Rock.

Native Americans have been fighting to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline for months. It’s time for us to join them any way we can. We have to act with the knowledge that social justice, economic justice and environmental justice are all connected.

I sent a note to the adbmin but I'll write here too just in case. ^^


Hi! My name’s Frida and I’m from Sweden. *sorry for the wall of text*

I just started my bachelor’s degree and I would like to know what the interest is in this group to help me with an online survey in about a month or so.

My final essay will be about stereotypes and racism in western media (mostly film and games) with focus on Native American characters, like Pocahontas for example.

The survey will consist of some drawn images of a character that you will react to and answer simple questions about. (No spoilers).

I’m asking here since, well I live in Sweden so there’s impossible to find any Native Americans here to ask to do this survey. I want to have two respondent groups. One will be Swedes and the other Native Americans. The first group is to get answers from a group that are assumed to have little knowledge of Native American culture (Powhatan and/or Pamunkey

to be specific). This is so that I can get results from a group that are assumed to not have much knowledge about Native Americans and might give me less critical results because of ignorance. These are by the moment just assumptions of course. As I said: I’m just checking to see what the interest to do this survey is like. I must know because I have to be sure that I will have respondents or else I won’t be able to do this project. It would be really helpful if this group would like to help with that. 

The survey won’t happen for at least five weeks.

Many thanks in advance! : )

You should allow requests so that native artists such as myself can ask to join your group
