Bleh.

Tomorrow I go to PT for a cane and then to OT to learn how to use it.


A freakin' cane?

When did I get old? What the hell?

*sighs*

Went to the Spirit of the Wolf Powwow-you know, it gets bad when politics inteferes with a powwows-no matter how small. And racism.

Native american racism is a little different-it goes in steps: 100% Native American is God you know...and then thereafter the amount you are Native American make you better than a person of a lesser amount: so a 50% has it ALL over a 25% which has it all over a 10%...did I mention we can get into fractions where being 1/8th% means you are more worthy than a 1\16th?


What does this mean?

Most of the crafters/dancers did not attend the powwow-which was set up to give money for the Special olympics....which could have got more if people just got along.

*crabbily sulks*

People really will reach for a reason to be superior, no?

that....um...hm.
incredible actually, that someone could even give a sh*t to trace back and find percentages to feel higher up.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/14/08 - 2:59:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
So what percentage are you, and of what region? Not to try and make myself seem superior at all, as I have no Native American blood in me. I'm just curious. :)

I guess so....But aren't we all human beings??


In the Native American realm....there are certain Government schooling and benefits that you can apply for if you are a certain percent....the more percentage point you are, the better the benefits get.

Hence the worthiness(!)

Animal baculum for a cane?

I know they are out there, but more for show than anything else.

Unil I heal even more, I need a 4 prong cane and then I will be able to drive again-but still...a cane?

my science teacher had a whale dick for a cane. it was pretty funny.

a 4-pronged cane? i never got that...how is it more helpful then a regular one?

Ok, ok - but that's probably just pennies compared to casino payouts. Is that pro-rated based on blood lines?
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/14/08 - 3:16:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
BTH...it's about balance witha 4 prong cane. I am missing some of muscles in my abdomen and am very "iffy" as far as balance. From what I gather, I will then go to a single footed cane and hopefully discard with it all together, but as this point it is an unkown.

Catchall...not so much bloodlines as percentage of Indian and one that is recognized by the Us Bureau if Indian affairs and then of course you are recognized on Tribal Rolls.....

okay, thanks for the explanation. and best of luck!

I need to meet 100% Native Americans.

The only ones I know are my dad's siblings, who don't practice anything. (My Uncle Wayne did, but he did the year he was going to take me to my first pow wow)

I'm 50% Blackfoot, btw.

I bet the kids will have a great time at the special olympics.

"Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic."
I totally disagree. Rudeness is the cheapest form of wit, and sarcasm is very lowbrow.

re: NA racism... There are a few different tribes here. I may not be politically correct in using the term tribe, but I'm using here because everybody knows what I'm talking about if I use that word...

We've got Yurok, Karuk, Wiyot, Hoopa, Mattole, and Tolowa. I think that's all the local tribes. Most of them are absolutely wonderful.

When we lived up on the mountain, my oldest boy graduated from 8th grade and his choices were to go to Hoopa High School on the res, which was 45 minutes away on a school bus, or take the greyhound bus for 2 hours to school in Arcata or McKinleyville.

The problem being that my son has blond hair and blue eyes and Hoopa Indians are all about their superiority. They have classes in the high school on Hoopa culture, but if you don't have a certain percentage of NA in your blood, you aren't allowed to take the class.

That always seemed really backwards to me. The other tribes around here more than welcome you in if you want to learn about their culture. When we lived in Happy Camp, we had a neighbor that was Karuk. He taught my kids words and phrases, as if they were his own kids.

If my son would have gone to Hoopa Valley and said, "Stop that!" in Karuk, he probably would have caused a riot.

Makes me sad they are so closed to outsiders learning about their culture... but it's not that different from Karuk and Yurok, from what I've heard.

Oh, we ended up moving so that my kid could go to high school without hassle., my son went to high school in Happy Camp with the Karuk.

Size isn't the issue. Hedgehogs have bacula too.

Humans used to, but thanks to women, they no longer do.

Long ago, our decendants had a penis bone (baculum). but women chose partners who could sustain a hydraulic erection (caused by fluid) as it was a sign of a healthy male.

So just think, if it wasn't for women being fussy, there would be no such thing as impotence.
