What I mean is, CNN did a black in America and now their Doing Latino in America not that am against that its cool to see what people of different races go thru.
But I really wanted to see a Native American in America have they done that yet? Whats it is like?

1)Do you think the Natives in Canada should have dull Citizenship?
2)Do they/You feel forgetten?
3)Do you guys get tired of people saying their Grandma's part Cherokee?
4)What do you think is a way to get your voices Heard?
5)Do you guys think your a dieing Breed?
6)Is like better on the REZ?
7)How do you feel about open Borders?

1)Do you think the Natives in Canada should have dull Citizenship?

I think you mean dual citizenship...we're good, just need that Jay Treaty followed. And the Natives in the rest of the Americas they should have a Jay Treaty too.

2)Do they/You feel forgetten?

Except when someones hating on us. You know when you see adds with people from different races...often I am left asking "wheres the skin?"...forgotten again.


3)Do you guys get tired of people saying their Grandma's part Cherokee?

just when it's there great grandma, or great great grandma.

4)What do you think is a way to get your voices Heard?

We got radio, tv, newspapers, singers, bands, rappers, actors, reporters, writers, columnists, politicians & lawyers (by the truck loads on the last two). Our voice is loud, when is everyone going to start to listen?

5)Do you guys think your a dieing Breed?

nope. We're great at making babies but according to the latest birth rates the rest of ya all need a lesson...so I think our numbers will catch up in a few generations.

6)Is like better on the REZ?

hmm....housing wise...no
standard of living...no
safety...no
safe drinking water...no
being in your own territorry with your people...yes.
Our family takes the middle of the road approach. We live just off rez in Native housing so we are still under housed, but it's not filled with aspestos and we can drink our water but we are close to our people, and ceremonies etc. It has it's gives and takes, it depends on the rez too. Some are beautiful healthy places to live, many are not, but the pull of the land...And to be clear I am referring to a rez in canada cuz I live with my husbands people but life is the same for us both sides of the boarder. Some of our politics are different though.

7)How do you feel about open Borders?

Think they should be open, if we had wanted closed boarders we would have made some, we didn't and your boarders divide many of us from our own. Those Mexicans you all try to keep out...1/2 of them have more right to be here then you do.
