So my bank fucked me over AGAIN and I’m going to try to come up with enough money to bring the balance to $0, then close the account for good. Screw you, Associated Bank.

This is all the completed beadwork I have for sale (I also have a few necklaces, but I gotta get some ribbon to finish them- they’ll also be posted when they’re done.) I will take just about anything I can get for them (plus shipping costs- $4 for U.S. and $8 for Canada)

I’m not sure if the packages would get to you by Christmas, but they’d make awesome gifts & you’d support a Native artist in the process :) if interested, please feel free to message me! And please boost this post if you can, I really appreciate it! Miigwech!

There’s where all my beads went! Lol, hahaha!!!

Blog: Native American unemployment rate rose in last 5 years
The Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians may have shared a meal at Plymouth in the early 1620s — an event experts say was not the first Thanksgiving — but members of the native tribes have rarely had a seat at the table since. And nowhere is that more apparent than their modern economic situation. 


Hell yeah!! Try getting a crappy low paying job in a white town & they act like you’re trying to get a brain surgeons position!!!!

Commissioners to apologize to Tribes for racist remarks
At a meeting on November 27, the Ravalli County Commissioners agreed to hand deliver a letter to members of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) apologizing for the offensive remarks made by a member of the public at a previous meeting on November 20. At that meeting an entourage of tribal members had come, at the invitation of the County Commissioners, to discuss the commissioners’ objection to the Tribes’ proposed transfer of 58 acres of land in Ravalli County from tribal ownership into federal trust status. The meeting ended on a discordant note as Jan Wisniewski, Chairman of the Ravalli County Planning Board, made remarks about “the problem with drunken Indians.”

We need more apologies……
