valhalla_calling : I've looked over your page. I just wanted to say; you have a lot of really important information available here. You're obviously very informed and passionate about maintaining reality of your unique and respectable and very diverse history. As a third party I just needed to let you know one human to another that I admire what you've done here. Keep up the good work. I have seen so many memes and things online from American Africans describing themselves as native to the Americas. While I do not doubt the obvious truth that many nations all over the world had trade routes and vast empires that would have people going from one side of the globe to another. (A point conveniently *cough cough* left out of descriptions of ALL prechristian contact.) It's ethically wrong to deny reality. We are all one species, within that we have such a wide variety of races and cultures. It should be celebrated, which does not include erasing our own cultures or adoption of others (unless it works for you. ) The worst crime we could commit against our children is to further cloud what little is left of our natural ways. People need a good strong foundation for who they are, that comes with a respect for your ancestors. An important part is simply knowing who those ansestors are. Your providing that information for your people, and you've offered a lot to learn on my part so I simply thank you.
native_faces : @valhalla_calling thank you! I appreciate the kind words and comments. I must express I am mixed-race with some native Mexican ancestry. In addition to all this, in the near future i will have a blog or website.
valhalla_calling : @native_faces well when your blog or site is up definitely let me know. As far as being mixed EVERYONE IS! Especially if we're taking it down to prechristian tribes. One of the basic tatics used against native people of Europe and America (well everywhere) was relocation obviously they took a cue from their war god and wanted to "confuse the tounges" this obviously leads to mixing. Just look at it this way if Christianity did anything good it was tearing down our tribal walls thus unifying the original natural people. It's maybe the only thing all people have in common we all came from a tribe or people probably multiple tribes and places and all of our collective history was ripped from us. Its a strong unifying factor. I'm a mix of various gaul/germanic tribes. I have name for a few but im sure there are so many unknown. As we traded and moved a lot as people before we were forced into slavery. Our tribes and lore talk about Vineland (modern north east coast Canada and America). And of course the people that lived here naturally. The church knew America's were here, I cant believe that sonething so well known and went to. Trade routes and everything were pretty well established as Christianity moved into our northern territory. I mean some of us fled to Vineland to escape. You can look up runestones in America as proof that some or at least one white tribe excisted on this land for at least some time before being killed or absorbed. Viking ships have also been found in America.

Couple things: 1. I strongly believe "Columbus Day" should be abolished. No counter-argument needed. Such a holiday or observance is a slap on the face to Native people. 2. Here on this channel are unpopular views, but I am not here to entertain popular opinion. So, with that, there is evidence that while there were enslaved Black Africans arriving on European ships since 1492, there is also evidence of Free Armed Black Africans who also arrived here after 1492. But zero evidence they arrived earlier. 3. Dentition alone does not prove they were Free Blacks. There are other sources that gives supporting evidence. 4. In no way does this image, nor does my views say, imply, suggest, or argue to start blaming black people for the Conquest. That would be your projection, not mine. This would be like portraying all Italians as murderers. Happy Indigenous Day but every day is Indigenous Day!
half_mexican_me : ve a Hitler Day? Maybe that comparison is not accurate; however, the fact of the matter is that columbus day should just be renamed Genocide Day.
native_faces : @half_mexican_me I think your comparison is good and I agree! If the government was to truly make some kind of amends, then they could start with treating "Columbus Day" differently and then deal with the "Redskins" issue.
half_mexican_me : And a host of other things too. Thanks for posting, love your feed, as usual😊
hazardousforya : Honestly it should be left to the descendants of such respected nations to observe such days as a day of mourning to honor their ancestors and not for the majority to decide. It will certainly take a few generations for this concept to take ahold due to the self-centered nature of the majority. The same can be said for the terms used such as "redskin," which entered used after the 15th century when the Spaniards and later the English observed the "Taino" spreading bixa/achiotl all over ones body. Terms such as red devils and such were common and are still in use for schools throughout the U.S. Now it is only a trend to cease from using such terms, to abolish the usage in schools and sports franchises, simply because it has its politic gains. Where was the majority then? Where have they been, those crusaders of all that is politically correct? It's 522 years to late for that. I don't fall for any of that crockery, as noble (of a cause) as any of it may seem.
native_faces : @hazardousforya first I must say, I haven't put too much thought into this subject so I will tend to agree with any view that makes sense whether they are opposing views or not.
native_faces : @hazardousforya however, many natives and native Mexicans do want to abolish Columbus Day and/or change it into "Indigenous Day," or whatever the case or name or what have you.
native_faces : @hazardousforya as far as the "majority" is concerned, and from my personal view at this time, I would say if such a gesture were to occur to abolish CD or resolve the Redskins issue, then it should be from a genuine place and not from the pressures of racial politics but from education and sincerity.
native_faces : @hazardousforya side note: there are some tribal leaders/members that are ok with "Redskins," but are not okay with the "Braves." So there are differing views within N.America just on that alone.

Some of the racists love to say, "Natives and Africans are one people." This is incorrect. And contrary to what the racists regularly spew- ALL humans are one human race.
through_horus_sunglasses_ : Why would it be improbable the first indigenous were African as well. Especially if they sculpted thier features on Colossal heads for future generations to see.
cresjr : @through_horus_sunglasses_ the Khoisan weren't the first Chinese and they never left Africa. The first Japanese which are Ainu didn't have "nappy" and continue to live in Japan and Siberia today.
cresjr : @through_horus_sunglasses_ The first and only Indigenous Americans sculpted themselves not Africans as there were no Africans in the Americas prior to 1492 invasion.
through_horus_sunglasses_ : @cresjr the African nose was the most on point.
native_faces : @through_horus_sunglasses_ the first Chinese were not black. Blacks only settled on some coastal areas. Ainu look closer to Caucasian, but are not Caucasian. The reason some whites claim Ainu as Caucasian is the same reason afrocentrics claim them. @cresjr
moneyali : @through_horus_sunglasses_ weren't African but from Mu

Go to Youtube and search "REVIEW: Black in Latin America, Mexico & Peru: The Black Grandma in the Closet, P1, Mexico. The REVIEW version addresses some of the falsehoods presented by Henry Gates. I happen to have a great deal of respect for Mr. Gates and to be very clear, Henry Gates is no Afrocentric. However, he is not exempt from criticism and this REVIEW film challenges some of those common American misinterpretations of colonial Mexico.
jaylumbee : He's a smart man. He gives people the truth, supported by research and documentation--not just hearsay.
native_faces : @yessi_xitlalic you are correct. I wish they would have included admix studies.
native_faces : @jaylumbee he's definitely a intellectual giant imo.
krsnaheru : There's afrocentrics that can't stand Dr Gates. He's one of the people who talks about Africans helping to enslave other Africans, which isn't hard for me to understand since there are generational disputes with neighboring nations for centuries.
native_faces : @krsnaheru that's true. On youtube I think the only time he's referenced is when they were trying to ridicule him.
yungflor : I respect his work he definitely has a greater lens than most folks. A true historian. He doesn't sit there and make up shit that's for sure.

Quote from Steven Hassan and my response to all this "meme-logic" going-on on social media, particularly aimed at all of these so-called truthers i.e. fake enlighteners, pseudohistorians, ethnocentrics, conspiracy theorists etc.
jordy_81012 : Those new agers tick me off the most
native_faces : @jordy_81012 yeah they are really annoying
jordy_81012 : Memes are pretty fun though
native_faces : @jordy_81012 they are!

Pulque pouring from the breasts of am earth goddess, detail of Bilimek Pulque Vessel, Late Postclassic Aztec (Mexica).
jordy_81012 : I read about a Mexican archaologist that claims some artifacts are from 30,000 BC
native_faces : @jordy_81012 as far as the Bering Land Bridge theory something I will work on in future posts. There is also a Hypothesis of a "Bering Standstill," where supposedly natives had occupied for 5, 000yrs, before traveling the coasts southward. So there are a few things I need to revisit before I can accept that theory or not.
native_faces : @jordy_81012 anything past 20,000 yrs is speculative. It all depends on artifact, how it was found, condition of land it was found...for example, artifacts have been found in the past where if the land has shifted or moved due earthquakes, landslides or construction etc. then those things can make such a find appear to be older than actually is.
jordy_81012 : Tru tru. I just like to think that we originated here as a species.
native_faces : @jordy_81012 yes there is that too. In fact it is called "out of America." I occasionally look into that too because there are some very interesting arguments made but I don't know all there is about it completely, yet.
jordy_81012 : Where are you from? And are you full native? I hate having my blood diluted .__.
native_faces : @jordy_81012 my ancestry is from all over so I am mixed-race, half European American; Irish/German, and half browns; native Hawaiian, native Mexica, Okinawan, and some Gypsy. But i dentify closer to my Pacific Islander Hawaiian/Mexica cultural heritage because of my upbringing. Yeah I know what you mean, sometimes I wish I was more of one thing than being all mixed up.

cla_6 : I don't get it
native_faces : @cla_6 as opposed to the common meme, "no drama zone," my channel is all about drama and conflict revolving around Native American identity, amongst other things.
native_faces : @cla_6 so as opposed to the other common meme, I welcome drama.

native_faces : @cresjr uh, this guy is really bad
cresjr : @martinlutherdaiii Every human being has melanin and yes blacks can be racist. Also no Africans had never stepped foot in the Americas prior to Europeans bringing you.
native_faces : @cresjr I saw that my boy nemequene referred to "melanin" recently. Isn't that something?
cresjr : @native_faces really? Wow
native_faces : @cresjr yup.
anthony_marmaud : The first native Americans were East Asian
all.hail.satin : @martinlutherdaiii you can't be racist towards whites... You can be towards Native Americans because we were systematically oppressed by Europeans for hundreds of years... Please tell my grandma who was forced from her home as a child by europeans and was beaten and abused as they forced her to forget her native culture and language that she has "institutional power"
jengal0585 : @martinlutherdaiii wow the hate you demonstrate is truly sickening. This isn't the first time I've witnessed a self proclaimed Hebrew Israelite spewing so much ignorance. Is that what the Hebrew Israelites stand for? Such a noble human being..clearly you are the most high's chosen ones (Sarcasm). Luckily you are a fringe group that have zero credibility. Indigenous people of the Americas will continue to be proud of their roots. We will continue to pass down our culture to our children. We will continue to hunt and fish as our ancestors have since memorial. We will continue to fight the environmental rape of mother earth. We will still sing and chant the same songs that generations of my ancestors did. Nobody can take that away from us. Our roots run deep. We have survived attacks by Europeans for hundreds of years. You're tactics are no different than the "white devil man". All I see is the same regurgitated memes on IG from the same group....yawn. Damn, it's feels good to be native.
