    500 Nations - The Story of Indian Americans

    500 Nations - The Story of Indian Americans

    I've just spent 7 hours watching this whole set of videos all about the full story of the native American 'indians' and how they eventually fell under the jackboot of European invasion.

    I'm right on the edge of blubbing.

    It's a story that scales up to a massive proportion the same Palestinian hell.

    I'm also reminded by it that the whole of the human race is likely under the very same kind of assault from beyond this planet.

    Seems, what goes around, comes around.

    Can we learn anything?

    I'm 30 minutes into part 1. Once we get through the 15 first minutes (mucho ho'hoponopono needed there), this is a good watch.

    Thanks for posting.

    I think everyone here in the states is aware of that very sad story.

    Then, in the 70's when the Native Americans began to understand their past and began to take back their spirituality. Guess what we did? We gave them Indian casinos - which brought them into consumerism instead. It also began some bickering between tribes as to who get the $$ from the casinos, etc., as well as it connected them with some of the Las Vegas mafia. While it did raise the standard of living for many, many still live in severe poverty. Some are still connecting with their past, hopefully that segment of their culture will grow.


    While it's important to understand their past (so keep sharing the above), I also suggest reading Ken Carey's book "The Return of the Bird Tribes". a little about Carey on this thread: http://jandeane81.com/threads/3383-T...0801#post30801

    I managed to watch all four parts of the documentary over the week. Yep... lots of Ho'hoponopono required. I found this to be very educational. Even though I knew of some of the history in my part of the world, I learned a lot of other tribes spread across the Americas.

    The way I understand it, anytime some people think they are above others, that's where the abuse arises. Some chiefs/kings or whatever thought that the people were there to serve them, which is quite a contrast with the chiefs/leaders that thought they were there to serve the people. See the difference ?

    I don't even want to get into the "civilized" conquerors that came. We were better off being savages...

    What really stuck with me is that tribes were living in abundance before being civilized. There was trading and commerce... and they did not have any money. Imagine that ! and some say it can't be done... living without money. We still have so much to learn...

    Again, thanks norman for sharing this. I really enjoyed the teachings I received from it.

    Yes, I was amazed how very well they farmed and had a lot of food stored for the winters. The stupid Hollywood image of them was a long way from the truth.

    The decimation they suffered from the European pathogens was the biggest hit they took. After that, they were struggling to recover and the Europeans would never let them do that.

    I also saw a lesson for the modern minions in the way the Cherokee 'businessmen' ( with their short haircuts, suits, and mansions ) also ended up on the scrap heap and despised by their brethren, into the bargain.

    The worst thing about all this is that it is still going on. This time, we are all in this together.

    Here's a song from Samian, a young Algonquin rapper. This is his plea against the "plan nord" here in Qubec. I'll include a link to the google translate English lyrics for those interested.

    I can see that there is a rising of the people... the vision is faint still, but it is definitely there. The world is changing.
