Ties binding persons of #African descent and Native Americans trace back centuries. In #Oklahoma , both free and enslaved Africans lived among the Five Civilized Tribes the #Cherokee , Muscogee (Creek), #Chickasaw , #Choctaw , and #Seminole Nations. These tribes officially sided with the Confederacy during the Civil War. After that internecine conflict, the tribes except for the Chickasaws adopted their respective Freedmen. The term #Freedmen embraced both formerly-enslaved persons of African ancestry, and those free persons of African ancestry who lived among the tribes. 🎧📚 In the modern era, the tribes who granted citizenship to their Freedmen have sought to disenfranchise them. Freedmen descendants persons of African ancestry with blood, affinity, and/or treaty ties to the Five Civilized Tribes still struggle for recognition and inclusion. The Freedmen debate rages in the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, where legal battles in tribal and federal courts have been waged, and a confrontation with the Bureau of Indian Affairs over the issue threatens tribal sovereignty. The Cherokee controversy is both illustrative and emblematic of larger questions about the intersection of race, Indian identity, and Native American sovereignty. 🎧📚 Johnson traces historical relations between African Americans and Native Americans, particularly in Oklahoma, Indian Country. He examines some of the legal, political, economic, social, and moral issues surrounding the present controversy over the tribal citizenship of the Freedmen. Wrestling with the issues surrounding Freedmen identity and rights will illuminate and advance the American dialogue on race and culture.

#Repost @starjingle with @get_repost ・・・ One of the things I miss about Oklahoma, people ask, “What tribe ya belong to?” Its not a stereotype, everyone knows the tribes they refer to as the 5 civilized tribes settled there. The Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Seminole and Muscogee ( Creek). I’m a registered Choctaw, but also have Chickasaw and probably Cherokee. In the northeast, I’m asked if I’m Hispanic, Egyptian, Italian or if my parents are bi-racial. None of which I mind, but no one here ever asks if I’m Native American. My grandmother once asked if there were a lot of Indians here. “Uh, no. I think pilgrims took care of that.” The second photo is of ancestor Colonel Chief David Folsom, the first elected Chief of the Choctaw tribe, with his wife and his girlfriend. And no, I don’t follow that custom but it was completely acceptable then. However I think we can figure out which one is the girlfriend. And I guess if everyone is in agreement- acceptable today 😉. I like to believe I got the best traits from each tribe, full lips from Choctaws, long legs from Cherokee women and Cupid’s bow from Chickasaw. And peaceful nature from all. ( yes! I’m the complete opposite of what you think). I was once told that the Choctaw tribe was also know as the “people of many colors”. That makes my heart happy ♥️. #nativeamerican #choctaw #choctawproud #chickasaw #cherokee #oklahoma #proudnative #peacekeepers #fivecivilizedtribes

Just a few of our favorite pieces from the Hatchet Women Collection! During the French Indian Wars of the 1730s, villages in our southeastern homelands were under attack by French Soldiers looking to take our resources and harm our people. However, they were stopped by Chickasaw women. Armed with hatchets and skilled in combat, these unconquerable women forced the French to retreat.
Most often, when a child behaves poorly, no matter what age, parents just want it to STOP! (✋Guilty) However, that is focusing on the END of the issue. In this month's "Therapeutic Parenting," Sonia Martin challenges parents to take the time to discover the WHY behind the behavior! Be sure to find a copy of the December magazine to dig deeper into this approach. . #tantrums #sulking #backtalk #TherapeuticParenting #family #mobilebayparents #parents #parenting #parenting101 #parenthood #momslife #mobileal #mobilealabama #saraland #prichard #chickasaw #eightmile #moms #mom #daddy #dad #kids #familytime #stayathomemom #workingmom #singleparent #momsofinstagram

Insults stifle creativity. Judgement stifles creativity. Negativity stifles creativity. That’s why so many people are afraid to be themselves and it is the saddest shit in the world. Even worse knowing I was once in my shell because of it. We weren’t meant for that. Human beings were meant to create. We were all meant to have our own style and to be different. Apparently mine is kung fu, glow shoes and pow wow dancing. • Yooo what’s hilarious to me is that people look at me like I’m weird doing this and I look at them like they’re weird for torturing themselves on a treadmill. I’m having fun and my heart rate was BLASTING. • I almost got self-conscious because people could see me through the window but then I thought about dying knowing that I didn’t do cool stuff and was like.. nah I’m hitting the icky shuffle. • I hurt my shoulder so no flips or ground work for a while. It’s a sign that I need to develop my footwork and lower body strength/coordination. There is no stopping the show with positivity and creative solutions. “Uhh I can’t do that? Guess I’ll just do this.” • • • #glowshoes #rave #capoeira #armada #kicks #nativedancer #edmfitness #motivation #movement #exercise #exercisemotivation #progress #dance #powwow #kungfu #martialarts #cardio #psychology #philosophy #chickasaw #choctaw #footwork #dedication #weirdo #beweird #stayweird #behappy

Today my little love turned 10. All those laps around the sun have made him a little man, with a full personality of his own, a heart of gold and goofy charm. I’m forever changed by his presence on the planet, and sometimes wonder why he chose me as his vessel to come through. He has brought so much growth and light into my life. Who I am today is 110% different than who I was 10 years ago, mostly due to the maximized growth that this cute accelerator brings into my space. How I give thanks every night. For the struggles and the sunshiny days. For the deep love and strong bond between us. He has been a teacher to many, and currently is in a phase of learning and resting up and growing like weeds. I can’t wait to see what the next chapter of life brings to him. As a true Sagittarius, he playfully moves through it all. To say that I’m proud of him is an understatement. 🦋 Swipe left to go from Kauai to Malibu, age 10 to 4 if my memory doesn’t fail me. ••• #proudmama #mysun #sun #sonshine #angelonearth #patientandkind #crystalchild #psychickids #intuitive #spiritualboy #heartofgold #empath #gifted #persianboy #americanboy #nativeboy #africanamericanboy #chickasaw #iranian

Have you seen? The Moundville Studs are back! The Chickasaw people are descendants of the metropolis of Moundville, located in today’s state of Alabama. Moundville was a major city fueled by trade and commerce, which thrived between 1,000AD to after 1500AD. Moundville is named after the great man-made earthen mounds, which still stand today.
Hace 123 años nacía Mary Frances Thompson más conocida como Te Ata. Pertenecía al pueblo indio #chickasaw , y a pesar de los problemas sociales y raciales que eso conllevaba logró hacerse un nombre como #actriz en Broadway. Aunque por lo que es más recordada es por su labor como #transmisora de las historias y canciones de los pueblos originarios de América.

I spent some time on the old Chickasaw lands today - one of the nicest hikes. I love going along this trail because there's lots of medicinal herbs along the way. The Chickasaw return to these lands for rejuvenation and remembering, and I can see why. It's so peaceful. #hiking #chickasaw #natcheztrace #remember #trail #peaceful #instatravel #pitstop #photography

Wovoka was a Native American Medicine Man that led the last great spiritual awakening of the tribes. He united people under the same ideals in 1870 after the American government had essentially obliterated or assimilated a majority of Natives. He believed that by pursuing righteous lives, peace, meditation and by performing the circular Ghost Dance that all ancestors’ spirits would be connected with, the Buffalo would rise again, and a series of natural disasters would drive out the colonizers. Unfortunately, his message was construed by other tribes and certain factions used the cohesion to become militant. The American Government took the process as a threat and eventually led to its suppression and finally the Wounded Knee Massacre where US troops would open fire and kill 200 Native women and children and 100 Native men. The last great awakening of a culture that had everything stripped from it. I am Native and white, so I am both victim and perpetrator, however I am neither. Only myself. So I decided to pay homage by continuing my message of peace, meditation and dance to pursue to pursue that righteous life and to unite humans across all races and cultures. I take the lesson that humans are capable of all forms of evil and it is our job to be aware of it and to stand for what is right. • • • #americanhistory #nativeamerican #peace #dance #chickasaw #choctaw #rave #righteousness #weird #beweird #bedifferent #rhythm #glowshoes #rave #unite #medstudent #futuredoctor #creativity #ghostdance #nativedance #nativedancer #nativeamerican #nativeamericanstyle #edm #edmfit #edmfitness
