"For my part, I meant to express surprise (not hate) at what seemed like a mild reaction and encourage you to stand up for yourself. I'm on your side 100%. Any ire you picked up was directed at your former friend, not at you. If it came across…"

" I'm getting a lot of hate for calling her a friend! She WAS a friend. I don't consider her a friend anymore. What made this all the more shocking is that she was my friend. Just wanted to share my experience."

"kOrson, as usual, phrases it more succinctly, but it would seem that your "friend" and the curb were meant for each other - why don't you kick him/her/it there?"

""wow I had no idea cause its not like you ever see attractive natives! you are obviously more than you look" I wonder if your "friend" was implying that you must not be full-blood native or you wouldn't be attractive?"

"We have a name for the systematic destruction of a culture and a people: genocide. So too, we have a name for the imposition of such systems: totalitarianism. It's generous to call someone a friend after they side with and defend genocidal…"

"you know, Kairan posted an offhand comment in another thread a while back, that has stuck with me ever since.  She said, "we don't like your Jesus, we'll make up our own".  So true."

Its not like they believe in OUR god!

The other day I was having a discussion with my friend at work about how my grandparents (who are Alaskan native) were sent to boarding schools and had their mouths washed out with soap if they spoke their language. I explained that Christianity was forced upon them. Her response was "well its not like they believed in OUR god" huge emphasis on the OUR god part. I can expect this from someone who upon learning that I'm native said "wow I had no idea cause its not like you ever see attractive…See More

June

Thus far, June has proven to be a bad month. There has been one death after another. My friends father died last week, a girl I went to school with committed suicide, another friends father died, and now my brother in laws mother died yesterday. Last year this time my best friend’s father died. I am in shock. The only thing I don’t share in common with everyone else I have been into contact with about…

(poca-hotness) has me thinking about native beliefs and how Christianity has

affected our culture. I'm Alaskan Native (Tlingit, Haida) and our culture and
