The 1970s was a turbulent time of confrontation and conflict, and Russell Means  perfectly fit that zeitgeist. To Native Americans who had endured centuries of oppression, the handsome, charismatic Oglala Sioux with the waist-length braids of black hair was a mash-up of Malcolm X, Abbie Hoffman and Saul Alinsky — a once-wayward soul who found a new purpose as a militant activist and who mixed physical confrontation with political theater.

This photo taken in North Carolina in 1888, shows a Cherokee cabin that is very representative of the homes in this region during the 19th century. The United States federal government forced about 16,000 Cherokee and hundreds of other Native Americans to abandon their land in NC, GA, Tenn, & AL and move to OK in the late 1830's. Brett Riggs, an archaeologist at the University of NC, is uncovering the remains of farms and homes in the mountains of NC, that the Cherokee left behind.

Cherokee Indians value their family, however different from most situations, the women is under absolute control of everything. She holds her clans name, all the children belong to her, and the man must settle in her village after the marriage ceremony. The man is there to make children and provide meat for the family. As the husband’s ability to hunt exceeded the needs of his family, it is common that he is then allowed to have more than 1 wife.

THIS BEADIFUL WORLD...

There is an ancient Indian saying~ Something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant & immutable while history serves only those who seek to control it, those who douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth. Beware these men for they are dangerous & unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember & seek the truth.~Floyd 'Red Crow' Weste...

Will you ever begin to understand the meaning of the very soil beneath your feet? From a grain of sand to a great mountain, all is sacred. Yesterday and tomorrow exist eternally upon this continent. We natives are guardians of this sacred place. ~ Peter Blue Cloud, Mohawk

The white people, who are trying to make us over into their image, they want us to be what they call "assimilated," bringing the Indians into the mainstream and destroying our own way of life and our own cultural patterns. They believe we should be contented like those whose concept of happiness is materialistic and greedy, which is very different from our way. Photo Colorized by Helmut Weininger Wendelin
