    Ha’a Keaulana runs across the ocean floor with a 50 pound boulder. They do this as training to survive the massive surf waves of winter. She learned her amazing skills from her dad, legendary waterman #briankeaulana and her Grandpa, #Buffalo. I was very humbled to learn from the Hawaiians who have salt water running through their veins. Mahalo Nui Loa. Please stay tuned for our upcoming story on the Hawaiian surfing culture.

    Hundreds of people gather in a vigil to honour and remember Tina Fontaine and Faron Hall; both are first nations who were recently found deceased. Tina Fontaine was found in a bag in the river, murdered.

    Media reports have come in saying that those marching have filled Portage and Main in Winnipeg.

    We need to combat racism and prevent further violence and death to first nations people, but especially women. Canadians should not forget about this.

    THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

    Gotta put this on blast.
    We never needed a white savior.

    I hate this country.

    What I learned from this video:

    • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
    • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
    • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
    • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
    • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
    • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
    • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
    • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
    • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

    The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

    In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

    This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

    Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.

  9. Two Traveling Angels…

    amortizing:

    Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion’s guest room. Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement. As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied, “Things aren’t always what they seem.”

    As the debate on same-sex marriage continues in Western nations, including the United States, Thailand could become the first country in Asia to legalize gay marriage. Thailand is known for its liberal acceptance of sexuality, but the draft same-sex marriage law is not without controversy. This is a traditional Thai wedding, except there is no groom. There are two brides. This ceremony is only symbolic because Thailand, like all of Asia, does not recognize same sex marriage. But a draft law later this year could change that and make Thailand the first Asian nation to legalize gay marriage. Nonetheless, Arisa Thanommek and her partner Pacharee Hungsabut say they were not interested in waiting. “We…we [will] not wait. Because we [are] ready.  Our family is ready,” she said

    I noticed that women of color are one of the biggest spearheads of recognizing LGBTQ relationships. Happy Pride Month to Thailand!

    Imagine a library filled with every book in the world, none of them have titles on the cover and the pages are blank, but when you open one you are instantly transported to the world within the book. You get to live in the story as any character for as long as you like. And when you come out of the story, almost no time has passed in the real world.
