💓Generosity is a value we Natives must continue to pass on to our young ones! “Parents often gave so much to the needy that they frequently impoverished themselves, thus setting an example to the child of self denial for the general good… Children must early learn the beauty of generosity. They are taught to give what they prize most, that they may taste the happiness of giving.” - Charles A. Eastman, Lakota

I had the immense honor to spend the weekend in Leech Lake, northern Minnesota, with my Ojibwa/Lakota family to “celebrate” the one year anniversary of the passing of Dennis Banks - Nowa Cumig. A beautiful wiping of the tears ceremony, followed by a pow wow and memorial traditional dinner, film screening of my final retrospective film of his life, time to chat and reconnect with friends and fellow Longest Walkers with whom I crossed the country in 2008- that’s when I really got to know Dennis by shadowing him as I had been asked to document the whole 6 month walk... I am so very proud to have gotten to know such an incredible man, who did so much in his 80 years of life. The journey continues - thank you to the family for having me, love you so much @tashinabanksrama @sierraceline @_minohbaggins #dennisbanks#americanindianmovement#aim#longestwalk#ojibwa#leechlake#anishinaabe#ogichidaa
👊I was given poverty, that I might find my inner strength.

"Many problems with this meme. Firstly, they shouldn't have used a black woman in the meme. It fuels the racist stereotype that all black women are "hoes" and are "ratchet". Secondly, the photo of Selena is misleading, it makes it look like she didn't wear clothes that revealed her body, when she did. It doesn't represent her accurately at all. These two things together end up creating a misrepresentation of black women and of Selena. It also has to be said that these kind of memes are never aimed at men. Never ever! And finally, men should respect women regardless of how a woman carries herself. If they don't like certain behavior from women then just ignore it and go for a woman who does fit your likes/dislikes! I do think that it is important for women to not fall into the trap of over-sexuality themselves but I don't think this meme properly addresses that issue. "- Awqapuma Colque
On this extremely special day, I wish a Happy Happy Happy 8-year Anniversary to my twin flame 💏🔥 and love of my life @ericsschnell — married eternally on 11-11-11 by Native American legend #dennisbanks at the 70th Bday celebration of my late dear friend & mentor, iconic #ecopreneur @aveda & @intelligentnutrients Founder #horstrechelbacher — who wrote the foreword of my new book #ecorenaissance and was our best man (our incredible wedding that eve was HIS 11-11 birthday request!) 💚 What amazes me about 11-11 is that in addition to Horst, some of my other fave men on the planet who have worked tirelessly on behalf of environmental and social justice were also born on this day. Coincidence? No way! 1+1=11 — we are stronger together than apart. 💪🏼🌎🙏🏼💕💯 Happy Birthday to #soulbrother @fairtradeusa Founder/CEO @pabloarroz (Paul Rice) and to the extraordinary @leonardodicaprio — I LOVE YOU ALL ABOVE & BEYOND 💚💚💚💚 (notice the 11 hearts I asked @petermaxart to include when giving him Horst’s portrait to paint for Horst’s 72nd Bday). Making an 11-11 wish today? How about a green, chic, fair & healthy planet! 🌎💚🙏🏼 #1111
