I am a member of the Penobscot tribe and my wife is the one of the ones who you call out as not being true to our plights. You are wrong to say she is disingenuous and you are wrong about her not spreading the word of the missing and raped . She has been welcomed by my tribe. Take this to your elders if you are angry but do not air your anger here against one who is with us. Do not speak for all as you are one. May you find peace with your anger. Your fight is not with her. Remember the values no matter who the person, or the situation. It is what you and the creator know to be true that matters.~ Remi JT
I side eye all my non-Native followers who call themselves our allies, but they’ll hardly give a glance to posts concerning Native people going missing, being murdered and raped for no reason at all and only reblogging the pretty things I post. What’s ‘liking’ the post gonna do for us? You call…

Agreeably I take a long time between posts. I often think long and hard, looking at all sides before I form an opinion. I have now come to this conclusion about the state of our country. As a nation, I believe we are strong and our individualism is intact, however, the fundamental basics of our society have become skewed to a point of breaking.
I say this with hesitancy as I would expect many…
Today, I read a news story about some elementary students whose parents had run out of lunch money for their kids. The school discovered this at lunch time and literally took the kids lunch away. Sad on its own, but, it gets worse.
The cafeteria servers…
Well, here we are, 2014 and lets take a good hard look at where we stand.
Jobs are coming back, but not good ones or well paying jobs. Long term unemployment benefits have been cut because politicians, people we elected, decided that it encouraged people…
The devastation into the Philippines and the tragedy is brutally apparent.
What is not being reported on is what I am here to talk to all about. Trafficking of children.
Now you can imagine what this would be like for a child who has become separated from…
We did not win. No one won this last battle. Not a Democrat, Republican or Tea Party member won a thing. No one won because it was not a contest or a game. It was a misguided debate about whether we were going to fund our government and pay our bills.…
As we face a debt ceiling show down, as we go through a government shut down, I have noticed some things. Now many of you will dislike what I am about to say, but, at times, things that are unpleasant need to be said and done.
We are no longer a world…
The Republican led house, secretly between the hours of 11 pm Sept. 30th and 12 am Oct. 1st passed a house rule change. This rule prevents any member of the house of representatives to introduce a bill to the floor without the express permission of House…
Man, those poor folks in the House of Representatives must be exhausted. All this arguing and standing their ground, coming up with new ways to fund what they feel is important. Tiring work.
It takes a lot out for you keeping the government shut down.…
After following your leadership I chose this morning to go to my job and demand concessions in health care, I demanded they cut the expenditures of the company and I would no longer be doing any work until my demands were met.
Much to my…
Ok, here we are….again.
So as we all look around and we watch the news and hear the politicians talk about shutdowns and debt ceilings and committees and negotiations, what is it we do not hear?
That may seem like an odd question and one that may be…
