Ok, this is a really nice sentiment, and I like it except for one thing:
It is incorrect to generalize all native american religions as one. They are (and in the past to a far greater degree) many, many diverse beliefs, just as there are many, many diverse groups and tribes. Clumping them is basically the same as saying “Eastern Religion,” or “European Religion.”
(It should be noted that I feel kind of weird speaking about/for cultures that are not my own, but this also seemed like such a fundamental error that is was worth pointing out.)

but this seemed like such a major and common error that it was worth pointing out.

Have you ever wondered where books come from?
Well then, let me show you, because that’s what I do for a living.
Right now, it’s this time of the year, and the little ones have just freshly hatched:
You’ll notice they’re still blind and naked when they hatch. So I make them…

PETITION TO MAKE LEARNING ANOTHER LANGUAGE COMPULSORY IN ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FROM A YOUNG AGE BECAUSE ENGLISH SPEAKERS ARE LAZY ASSWIPES WHO EXPECT EVERYONE TO SPEAK ENGLISH AND NEVER BOTHER EVEN LEARNING ANY OTHER LANGUAGE.
Actually, most of us would love speak another language but our education system sucks so we literally learn 4 words. It’s not because we are all lazy.
seriously I would probably speak french if my high school french teacher wasn't shit
I hate being unilingual

Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.
Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover
