‼‼ WE BEEN LIED TO BIG TIME!! This book proves that the Slavetrade was a LIE AND MADEUP!!! 90% of the slaves in America were American Indians! We were "Indentured servants" not "Chattel Slaves" in the beginning. If you look at Census records there were white, Asian, and Indian "INDENTURED SERVANTS" a person who works on a contract for a certain amount of time and gets paid for it...that's what we were "INDENTURED SERVANTS" and then when our contracts were up, they let the white and Asian servants go and continued to enslave the "Black Indians" reclassifying them as "Africans" to keep the slavery going and then it BECAME CHATTEL SLAVERY! There were even African Slave Masters here in America...yes some Africans were slave masters!!! We have been lied to big time! 95% of so called African Americans are AMERICAN INDIANS, AMERICAN ABORIGINES, INDIGENOUS TO AMERICA, AUTOCHTHONOUS, PRIMORDIAL...AMERICA IS YOUR LAND!! THERE ARE WERE BLACK PEOPLE all over the world NOT JUST AFRICA!!!! WAKE TF UP!!! . . #indigenouspride #firstamericans #aborigines #Indigenous #NativeAmerican #TurtleIsland #blackindians #Lakota #Olmecs #Cherokee #africanamerican #Choctaw #Apache #indigenouspeople #Creek #trailoftears #blackfeetnation #AmericanIndian #chickasaw #Seminole #blackpeople #treaties #nativepride #coppercoloredindians #Negroes #BlackLatina #BlackLatino #BlackAztec #BlackMayans 🔥🏹🏹

We had a few fun highlights this summer! Seeing #MirandaLambert in concert was one of them! @kayleesmalling right there with us! ⠀⠀ But unfortunately summer has come to an end as School starts tomorrow. Mya will be a junior and Laney a freshman! I’m really excited to watch these young ladies bloom this year and cheer them on in their sporting events! 🏐🏀🥎 ⠀⠀ I love that we are all doing life together! #teambailey #baileybunch #mygirls #mytribe #chickasawwomen #chickasaw @mya_mendoza10 @alayna_mendo30 @sandibailey1

One of our favorite pieces to wear in multiples...The Directional Stacking ring available in sterling silver, rose gold and black rhodium, with and without gemstones makes a great every day piece to wear alone or with other rings. They can face up or down, however you like it best!

That’s a wrap! On set of for the “Spectrum: Native American/ Indigenous” episode. @jubileemedia We are sacred. We live in a patriarchal society that doesn’t believe we exist. But truthfully, our existence shows the resiliency of our ancestors. We also discussed in this episode the contemporary challenges and problems faced by Indigenous Peoples. • It’s a great day to be Indigenous. Rise. Reclaim. Revolution. 👊🏽✊🏽 Together we are More! * * #indigneous #mmiw #ProtectMaunaKea #indigenouspeoples #mmiwg2s #nomorestolensisters #decolonize #BraveAF #haudenosaunee #smashthepatriarchy #akwesasne #womxn #strongresilientindigenous #reclaimyourpower #lakota #dine #tongva #chickasaw #indigenousRising #unistotensolidarity #onkwehonwe #Kanienkehaka #lgbtq #twospirit #indigiqueer
