QUOTES from above video:
We are just 2% of population… They say 2 million were dead, but it's probably closer to 20 million, and that's probably an understatement. This was probably the most complete and continual process of genocide in human history.
There are over 3000 sports teams w mascots.
Ignorance is our biggest enemy. The battle used to be on the battlefield… the battle today is in the classroom… the courtroom… and we 're fighting over our self image and identities… the battle is over our image and we are trying to reclaim ourselves, our history, our culture, and our spiritual items and images… It is about self determination and self identification.
We'll never have an equal voice in this country to heal ourselves if we can't keep from being trivialized and not listened to.
We all have responsibility to deconstruct the things that separate us; it's not just a Native American issue.
We also have to challenge the confusion within our own community (internalized racism, oppression, and sexism).
