Culture shock for Amazon chief’s son who left rainforest for New York (by 13jaipals13)
I absolutely love this. And this Chief’s son inspires me on my own path to do the same. I’ve always wanted to grow up to become an animated filmmaker, especially focusing on my own people. In hopes to teach and spread education and good things about my own people. *u* Very beautiful.
It’s easy to say “fuck cultural identities, we’re all human” when your culture is not the one being exploited, marginalized and oppressed. It’s easy to say “fuck borders” when your country is the one who puts up the borders. And it is really fucking easy to say “we all bleed red” when it’s not bodies of your people riddled with bullets because Western capitalism has a price.

Taino Indians Counted Out Of Existence
There are those who self-identify as Taino Indians today and they are making sure that they are counted in the upcoming 2010 census.
Present day Taínos argue that they were not entirely killed off and that many of them escaped into the mountains and others intermarried with their conquerors and survived.
this video features Roberto “Múkaro” Borrero (“A response to the claim of Taíno extinction”) and Gabriel Haslip-Viera (“The Myth of Taíno survival in the Spanish speaking Caribbean”)
is combination of Blood, Community and Beliefs
One of the worst things to me are when people “feel sorry” for me because of things I’ve gone through. No, use my experience to critically think about the world around you, don’t give me your pity.
