Frybread Powers ACTIVATE!!!
So last night I got like two hours of sleep.
I had been asked to do a presentation to two classes of youth at a school in Phoenix.
One group of 7th graders and one of 8th about the O’odham and Huhukam.
I was totally expecting then to be jerks and disrespectful lol
mainly because that’s how I was at that age.
It turned out to be an insanely awesome day.
Those kids were so curious and adorable.
We ran out of time twice because they wanted to know more and more.
My bfffff and I were supposed to chill because I was told I’d be there for an hour.
I ended up asking her to come and the kids fell in love with her lol.
I think they were super excited to have Miss Indian Arizona there.
One of the kids was super cute, we passed him as we were leaving
and he peeked out of his classroom and said “sorry for asking so many questions!”
Lol it was an awesome day and an amazing chance to inform them about
Native Americans and they were surprised that the textbooks were so misinformed.
It was just an amazing opportunity ^.^.
It makes me kind of sad/sick
When I hear that some tribal members
And even some of my own family
Are getting/trying to get a piece of the payout.
Like they don’t even know what the whole things about. They just shat on a monumental moment in Indian Country
Because its just another check for them.
Bet none of then even knows what that amazing woman did.
