I want to say I'm grateful for the warmth and fairness with which Destee has treated me-by Destee, I mean the person, and the forum at large. I post here very rarely, so as not to be intrusive, and because oftentimes, I don't feel as though what I may want to post is pertinent to the plight and fight of black people. But today, I would like to post something about Native Americans and black people. As you all know--Natives, much like your own people, are targeted by authority, in an effort to promote genocide, drug-abuse, etc. The difference with Natives, lies in the fact that as a Nation of sovereign peoples--there are federal and legal footholds via treaties and other means, to remain sovereign and to protect their culture, what remains of their land, and their way of life. This is a way to depossess the Federal government of all that is has been stolen from both of your peoples--by legal means granted in those treaties etc. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if people at large--of all races--here in America--could stand together and fight the Federal government via the legal foothold granted to Natives-there is a legal way to beat these thieves at their own game, using their own laws. Isn't that how Horus finally defeated Set? I know that on the surface of things, it would seem that the fight of Natives is not the fight of black people (or whites, etc.). But I also think that it is high time to make a concerted, united effort to change the direction of the country. In truth, their fight and yours, is the fight of humanity to stay connected with their ancient identities and ideologies. A Lakota person would tell you, that Lakota is not a race of people, but a way of life. If people want to get back to living with nature, in harmony with nature (in my opinion, that is the root of the world's problems-an inability or unwillingness to live within balance with nature) then it may benefit us to explore a concerted effort, in unification behind these principles and ideas--to which African people have also ascribed to in their traditional African ways. Why are people not fighting together, this common enemy of humanity? I would argue that the plight of all American people (I use the term loosely) can be fought effectively via joining the fight of the Native American people, against the Federal government. When I say American people--I include myself despite my skin color--because I also wish to see a return of the ways of indigenous peoples--who in my opinion have always been right regarding natural law, and the balance required to thrive in harmony with nature. I hope that makes sense to ya'll, because it seems all over the place, even as I write it. Hotep, P.
