I believe that to be a woman is to be incredibly powerful- there is no such thing as a “strong woman” To be a woman IS to be powerful.
Learning about your own ancestry is pretty fascinating if you’ve never done it before. I found out my great great grandparents were full Chickasaw(gpa) and full Choctaw(gma) Native American. Making me 1/8th Native American. Incredible, because...I’m super fucking white 😂😂😂 #ancestry #genealogy #nativeamerican #choctaw #chickasaw #enigma #contradictoryraces #humor #science #mentalhealth #writing #poetry #education #mumblingimeantforyoutohear

In late 1993, Riverside County Police arrested, charged and convicted Orlando “Elk Bone” Watley for crimes he did not commit. Arrested at 19 and incarcerated for 25 years, Orlando has maintained his innocence and must be exonerated. We are calling on you to support Elk Bone’s fight for freedom.

My kid is finally catching on to what I've been teaching him since he was 5. Rain or shine, he's loving nature....he started his own fire, cooked his own food, made his own fishing pole....we saw deer, went night fishing, played in the rain, I slipped and busted my knee, he stayed on his two feet, man I love road trips with this little dude. He makes crappy weather fun. #camping #boymom #rain #rainorshine #campfire #cooperlake #nightfishing #stickbug #deer #deerseason #fishing #native #nativeamerican #nativepride #nativelands #chickasaw #sacandfox #greatpyrenees #dogmom #pyrenees #pyrmom

Interesting in supporting more life-changing relationships? Visit the link in bio. For the past three years, I’ve been involved with Big Brother Big Sisters KC as a Big Sister. Getting to know the programs, other Littles and Bigs, and the staff, I’ve seen what they do for the youth of our nation. Providing the opportunity for the disadvantaged youth in our community to see and explore all the possibilities is an amazing way to have a lasting impact on the future. As a Young Native American Professional, I believe in the advancement of diversity in our businesses, so we are better equipped to solve our most challenging issues. . . . #givingback #fundraiser #kansascity @chickasawnation #nativesdoingbigthings #bigbrothersbigsisters #bbbs #chickasawwomen #chickasaw

The so-called Europeans and these other nations are currently residing on stolen property.. these are our True Enemies ( all nations besides Israelites ) Not only they stole this land but they raped our women and children, murdered our people as a whole, and slaughtered our main resources which was the buffalos. They never restored what they did wrong to till this very day today!!! And our people can’t seem to pick up on that .. these other nations are deceivers and are like snakes.. they walk pass you and smile in your face like nothing never happened like they’re innocent.. BS! We need to become mighty Men and go to war with them or they’ll completely wipe us out.. John 10:10-12 New King James Version (NKJV) 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. 11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a [a]hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. ( Revelation 13:10 ) “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” #native #nativeamerican #nativeamericanindian #mexican #hispanic #indian #indigenous #america #christophercolumbus #whitelies #evilwhiteman #seminole #cherokee #chickasaw
#TBT all the way back to the 1900s: my great grandmother Lizzie Cohee who was a Black Chickasaw Native American. Her marriage to her husband Asberry would have been considered interracial in these times since she was technically classified as Indian. Their family moved to Mexico in 1920 where my grandfather met my Mexican grandmother. Thanks @naomi1837 for the clarification. #familyhistory #ancestors #dna #chickasaw

After researching, came to a beautiful realization. The land upon which TrueSeed grows are the ancestral roots of my bloodline. I remember asking them so long ago. To guide me, teach me the ways i have long thought lost or stolen. Only to be shown that you cannot lose, nor can be stolen, what is always in you. A little while ago, i had an experience that left me deeply changed. After having a commune with my own ancestors they told it it was time to let them go. I couldnt digest that at the time. They said to stop calling them. They are already here. I was in tears. Overwhelmed with emotions. I was a mess honey! What hit the deepest was they told me, everything i'll ever need i already have, and that its ok to let go of tradition. I just couldn't understand that. Like what do you mean let go of you? I thought tradition was important. So much flowed through my head and heart. It is so clear now. I am my ancestors living and walking image. Everything i do is a reflection of who they are. The way i walk. The way i talk. The way i sing and dance. The way i smile. At any given moment i can access my dna and retrieve anything i need to know. It is beautiful to remember the past from time to time. But the more time we devote there, the more of the past we'll manifest. Right now, i am doing the exact same thing as my ancestors, just on a different vibration- but the frequency remains constant. I can choose to focus on the past, to focus on why i wad sad, what hurt me, and so on...or i can straight up step in to myself each moment. Just to be myself. Not study. Not to seek or look for answers. To simply know. That I am always the answer, 100% of the time. I honor my ancestors by living my own life, and not the one i once "thought" they would have "wanted" me to live. Ever since then, our connection has been more clear then it ever was. Can i get an AWOMB. #selfreflection #amethystthoughts #smokeyquartzthoughts #selfloveregimensforthemelanatedwoman #selflove #choctaw #chickasaw #catawba #zapotec #autocthonous #indigenous #ancestors #honoryourancestors #intuition #guidance #abundance #wealth #truth #TrueSeed #growth #grandrising #faith #melaninmagic

My son Howard loves languages. We received this dictionary at Chickasaw Family Camp this past summer. He frequently asks me to help him look up words so he can grow his Chickasaw vocab. Tonight he asked me to look up brother. After we found it, he rehearsed saying it, and then ran straight to Max to say "Chiholloli itibapishi" which means I love you brother. He's such a sweet kid. And so brilliant. I am really looking forward to family camp next year. Chipisala'cho #howardis6 #chickasaw #chickashanompa '

#indigenouspeoplesday I went to the Owl Creek Mounds yesterday on my way down the Natchez Trace! It was amazing to walk up the ancient ramp leading to the top of the mound. For the Chickasaws of the area, this was a sacred site in times past, where some important event would take place. Had a sacred temple or house on top. From the top I could see the remnant of a lower, longer mound, and across the road in a field was another mound. Wish I knew what they were all for!
An older poem written for my father, who was of the Chickasaw Tribe. Today, on Indigenous People’s Day, I am celebrating his life along with all of my Native American ancestors, many of which were on the Trail of Tears (including my great grandma who actually told me what it was like, if you want some perspective on how recently it happened). It’s time to make Columbus Day a thing of the past and give a voice to my ancestors who have been silenced for far too long. #indigenouspeoplesday #chickasaw • In a dream last night, or perhaps a memory, i watched you part the wheat fields like Moses from the dark horse you called brother and i wanted to wear your headdress and climb back into the sky with you the way the moon did: pregnant with the cosmos and full of blood. • • • Exodus || Alice Foster #poetry #writer #quotes #typewriter #spilledink #poetryaccount #writercommunity #poem #poet #artist #hyperian #igpoet #igwriter #poetrycommunity #art #spokenword #lovequotes #love #wisdom #spiritual #poetsofinstagram #sadquotes #prose #inspiration #spirituality #art #healing #poetryisnotdead

Where the buffalo roam
Nora and I went on a mommy daughter adventure while josh took a call this afternoon. We explored a forest path and discovered an entire heard of buffalo.
We visited the Chickasaw Cultural Center where members of the Chickasaw tribe taught Nora the Snake Dance and gifted her with a little corn husk Doll. Nora was very interested in their shaker instruments made of tortoise shells and river rocks. We all enjoyed exploring the Chickasaw village.
The architecture of the Travertine Nature Center was really impressive and reminded josh and I of Frank Lloyd Wright. The integration of the natural landscape into the building design as well as the lights made us wonder if one of the architects students was involved in this project.
A buffalo stamp for our passport book. This nature center had so many resources for answering all of Nora’s questions about buffalo and what the Native Americans used buffalo for
A long weekend means a quick camping trip to Chickasaw National Recreation Area and Travertine Nature Center 🦉🦃🦌🐿
