Meet The Generation Of Incredible Native American Women Fighting To Preserve Their Culture by Danielle Seewalker for Marie Claire UK

Native Americans represent just one per cent of the US population and some languages have only one speaker left. Now a new generation is fighting to preserve the culture.

Meet the women leading that fight: http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/blogs/547176/meet-the-generation-of-incredible-native-american-women-fighting-to-preserve-their-culture.html#y5UioxWL1hQHhom1.01

Activists rally to protect the Salish Sea

Dozens of activists protest the destruction of the marine environment known as the Salish Sea. Demonstrators protested the extraction from tribal land, transportation near delicate ecosystems and heavily populated city centers, and continued use of fossil fuels. 

From the Facebook event page…”Monday August 11, 2014 from 11 am – 1:30 pm (Indian Time)

In solidarity with Protect the Sacredness of the Salish Sea, please join us for a rally at the waterfront of the Sculpture Park at 2901 Western Ave, Seattle WA 98121.

With the possibility of coal terminals being built in Longview and on the great Lummi Nation’s sacred burial ground we face unfathomable risk to our health, land, water, and all of life in the Salish Sea. Thousands of coal trains, tar sands/oil trains and tankers would come through Washington State!

The beach we will be at is a sacred gathering place of the Coast Salish people. We will stand in solidarity with all our brothers and sisters as we honor our ancestors, and recommit ourselves as stewards of this land for us and future generations.

Please join us in prayer, song, and light lunch. Bring your drums, rattles, and water from your area for a Water Blessing, a traditional canoe landing, inter-tribal jam session, procession, and a symbolic blocking of the trains.”

There are memories of you
still lodged in the contours
of my now fractured heart
and I tell everyone that it is
off limits because I’m still
in recovery but truth is, it’s
because I am not ready for
someone new to come in
to take your place along
with the last pieces of
what you once meant to me.

I am not afraid of getting hurt, I’m afraid I have to lose you again (via ink-trails)

I left my hometown of Hugo, Mn. to persue my education at the University of Minnesota, Morris. I’m finally here.
