Are you posting legitimate quotes ABOUT NDN people or communities, even if they are not BY NDN people, because they’re relevant to historical record and ongoing conversation (microagressions and discussions of racism qualify here)?
All of the above is totally legit for #Native American! This list is not exhaustive, but you should get the idea.
Now on the other hand….
Are you posting pictures of dreamcatchers that were probably made in china (also applies to all other ‘native art’ not made by natives) because you bought it? Or your shitty, appropriative arts and crafts project?
Are you posting shit with pendleton patterns or random geometric patterns on it? How about random items made of leather, fur, or feathers? And this stuff is not specifically identified as being made by NDN people?
Are you posting photos of yourself/your friends wearing busted-ass stereotype clothing/dressed as 50’s style Hollywood Indians? Or reblogging others’ photos of the same? HINT: IF SOMEONE IS WEARING A WAR BONNET OR OTHER HEADDRESS AND IT ISN’T AT A FORMAL, REVERENT OCCASION (POWWOW COUNT), IT IS PROBABLY THIS.
For Take Back the Tag, I’m posting that hot deleted scene from Skin Deep. Look at the longing on Rumple’s face as he’s with Belle. This is why I love this ship, he has no delusions about who he is and he knows he doesn’t deserve Belle. He loves her because of that, she dared to love a monster when no one else would.
Love has no meaning if it isn’t shared. Love has to be put into action. You have to love without expectation, to do something for love itself, not for what you may receive. If you expect something in return, then it isn’t love, because true love is loving without conditions and expectations.
