Beautiful, Life, and School: flowersinbonecages: 19 delete edit You're pathetic. Please kill yourself Anonymous The other day I was very seriously contemplating suicide. Had I received a message like this then, I legitimately believe I would have attempted to take my own life. Unfortunately for you, two days ago a littie boy saved me. I didn't even know him -yet as we passed each other he said I was beautiful and deserved to live. Just like that. As tumbir becomes more populated, the amount of times I see hate on my dash is becoming more frequent. Often after my initial fury at seeing the cruel message dies down, I wonder what it is in the anonymous' life that has made them so bitter, heartless and cold, that they feel compelled to tell someone that they are not beautiful or are undeserving of life. I have failed to think of anything. I can find no reasons for such inhumanity. 3 weeks ago, a 13 year old girl from my town committed suicide because she was being bullied. The amount of people it affected is astounding. Her father is going to walk her down the aisle in a coffin as oppose to a beautiful white wedding dress. He's probably going to cry himself to sleep tonight like he has done since she she died. He still remembers holding her the day she was born and promising to protect her no matter what. Her mum is never going to teach her how to put her new born baby to sleep. She is never going to have a first kiss. Have sex. Travel the world. Feel the rush of relief when she finishes her final exam. Turn eighteen. Have a baby. Feel anxious when her child goes to school for the first time. Someone murdered her with their words. Someone like you. I'm naive to think you will never send hate again, but please learn two things from my response. 1. t takes a few kind words to save someones life. 2.

Beautiful, Birthday, and Crazy: thejoanglebook: gerrycoco: Joan Appreciation Day song聽聽Here is my humble contribution to Joan Appreciation Day. 聽@thejoanglebook this one鈥檚 for you聽***Personal note***聽I struggle to see projects through in life, for many different reasons that aren鈥檛 worth going into at the moment. All I can say is that I鈥檓 inspired every day by people like Joan who put their heart and soul into what they do.

This past weekend I learned that Joan Appreciation Day was on September 3rd and so wished to contribute something but didn鈥檛 know what.

Braids, Children, and Community: 61below: jyuu-chan: something-in-the-way-she-knows: freakishfrollic: psalmsofraven: yokhakidfiasco: stacyfaheyart: Illustration about Native American boys who have to cut off their braids to follow school dress codes. And black people have the same issue when it comes to finding jobs/careers. ^^^^ yes but it ain鈥檛 about us right now this is actually really important and pardon me for doing the cliche reblogging with a caption thing but i want to talk about braids and just how significant they are to native people (and of course i can鈥檛 talk about every native tribe as there are very specific sects and i only really am coming from the perspective of seneca) hair is extremely important as it represents the walking of the Sacred Path as the physical extension of thought and self, and holy men, women and two-spirits are identified through specific styles of dress and even if not holy, the hair shows what a person has participated in, their feelings, their age, whether they are married or not, whether they are in mourning and their tribe my grandfather is seneca and he had to remove his braids at a very young age and it was an act of assimilation because his mother knew they had to try to be white in order to proceed and it鈥檚 a tool of oppression and humiliation to cut (or force to cut) a native american person鈥檚 hair for both religious and cultural preservationist reasons my mom is half-seneca and her choice for me to not cut my hair until i was 13 and for it to be worn in traditional manner was because of this and when i cut my hair then, i cut it off at the base of my head for also this reason; i was diagnosed with depression and was going through therapy, i wanted my hair and my treatment to signify that i was becoming a new, better person鈥 eventually i started dying my hair but that is for separate reasons of colour symbolism and it鈥檚 still an important thing to me please do not invalidate the struggles of other POC, i understand that this happens and it鈥檚 horrific to not be able to wear your natural hair, these are also children whose culture and religion is being stripped away from them and they can鈥檛 even participate in something so important within their culture simply because of white patriarchal ideas of masculinity ^^THIS American Indian children (especially plains ndns) were forced to attend boarding schools where they were forbidden to speak their own language and had to cut off their hair and choose a 鈥渨hite鈥 name from the bible. If you refused, the teacher would often ridicule you by ignoring you anytime you attempted to speak or participate in class, to the point of saying offensive, false things about your people to rile you up enough that you gave in and picked a white name so the teacher would let you speak and tell the truth. (This is shown in bury my heart at wounded knee). In fact, it is hard to trace records before the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries bc the govt considered the way native peoples often have several different names that they go by in different context and by different people to be too annoying to record them in a census, another reason they were forced to choose white names. Being oppressed for your natural hair and the names you choose is a real thing other poc face and it鈥檚 wrong and it鈥檚 racist, but this specific post is about what it means to American Indians, and for them it was not only racist stereotyping, but forced assimilation and genocide of their cultures. dude holy shit being ridiculed for not assimilating was the least of your worries in a residential school. i know people who were forced to kneel on sharp rocks in a corner for speaking a single word in their native language some fun facts abt residential schools: 鈥 people who went to residential schools were abused physically, sexually, verbally, and emotionally. my mushum went through all of these until he turned 18 and was allowed to leave 鈥 boys were not allowed to wear their braids. period. the point of the residential schools was to 鈥榢ill the indian in the child鈥 and you can google literal before-and-after images of students that the schools would distribute as a source of PRIDE 鈥 the government would experiment on the students, starving them to see how long they could go without food before it seriously affected them. officially, over 6,000 native children died in residential schools. our government admits the number was likely much higher 鈥 residential schools were literally hitler鈥檚 source of inspiration for concentration camps during world war II 鈥 where im working right now, there are people in their 30s who were forced to attend residential schools 鈥 the last residential school closed in 1996, one year after i was born, two hours away from where i live, twenty minutes from my family鈥檚 reserve native assimilation has been the goal from the very start Residential schools may have officially been shut down, but native kids are still disproportionately removed from their homes and while ICWA (the Indian Child Welfare Act) was designed with the intent of ensuring they鈥檙e still placed within their community, ICWA was just recently overturned in the courts, which means that these children are being overwhelmingly placed with white families. This hasn鈥檛 stopped. They鈥檝e just gotten less overt about it.

Illustration about Native American boys who have to cut off their braids to follow school dress codes.

And black people have the same issue when it comes to finding jobs/careers.

^^^^ yes but it ain鈥檛 about us right now

this is actually really important and pardon me for doing the cliche reblogging with a caption thing but i want to talk about braids and just how significant they are
to native people (and of course i can鈥檛 talk about every native tribe as there are very specific sects and i only really am coming from the perspective of seneca) hair is extremely important as it represents the walking of the Sacred Path as the physical extension of thought and self, and holy men, women and two-spirits are identified through specific styles of dress and even if not holy, the hair shows what a person has participated in, their feelings, their age, whether they are married or not, whether they are in mourning and their tribe
my grandfather is seneca and he had to remove his braids at a very young age and it was an act of assimilation because his mother knew they had to try to be white in order to proceed and it鈥檚 a tool of oppression and humiliation to cut (or force to cut) a native american person鈥檚 hair for both religious and cultural preservationist reasons
my mom is half-seneca and her choice for me to not cut my hair until i was 13 and for it to be worn in traditional manner was because of this and when i cut my hair then, i cut it off at the base of my head for also this reason; i was diagnosed with depression and was going through therapy, i wanted my hair and my treatment to signify that i was becoming a new, better person鈥 eventually i started dying my hair but that is for separate reasons of colour symbolism and it鈥檚 still an important thing to me
please do not invalidate the struggles of other POC, i understand that this happens and it鈥檚 horrific to not be able to wear your natural hair, these are also children whose culture and religion is being stripped away from them and they can鈥檛 even participate in something so important within their culture simply because of white patriarchal ideas of masculinity

^^THIS
American Indian children (especially plains ndns) were forced to attend boarding schools where they were forbidden to speak their own language and had to cut off their hair and choose a 鈥渨hite鈥 name from the bible. If you refused, the teacher would often ridicule you by ignoring you anytime you attempted to speak or participate in class, to the point of saying offensive, false things about your people to rile you up enough that you gave in and picked a white name so the teacher would let you speak and tell the truth. (This is shown in bury my heart at wounded knee). In fact, it is hard to trace records before the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries bc the govt considered the way native peoples often have several different names that they go by in different context and by different people to be too annoying to record them in a census, another reason they were forced to choose white names. 
Being oppressed for your natural hair and the names you choose is a real thing other poc face and it鈥檚 wrong and it鈥檚 racist, but this specific post is about what it means to American Indians, and for them it was not only racist stereotyping, but forced assimilation and genocide of their cultures. 

dude holy shit being ridiculed for not assimilating was the least of your worries in a residential school. i know people who were forced to kneel on sharp rocks in a corner for speaking a single word in their native language
some fun facts abt residential schools:
 鈥 people who went to residential schools were abused physically, sexually, verbally, and emotionally. my mushum went through all of these until he turned 18 and was allowed to leave
 鈥 boys were not allowed to wear their braids. period. the point of the residential schools was to 鈥榢ill the indian in the child鈥 and you can google literal before-and-after images of students that the schools would distribute as a source of PRIDE
 鈥 the government would experiment on the students, starving them to see how long they could go without food before it seriously affected them. officially, over 6,000 native children died in residential schools. our government admits the number was likely much higher
 鈥 residential schools were literally hitler鈥檚 source of inspiration for concentration camps during world war II
 鈥 where im working right now, there are people in their 30s who were forced to attend residential schools
 鈥 the last residential school closed in 1996, one year after i was born, two hours away from where i live, twenty minutes from my family鈥檚 reserve
native assimilation has been the goal from the very start


Residential schools may have officially been shut down, but native kids are still disproportionately removed from their homes and while ICWA (the Indian Child Welfare Act) was designed with the intent of ensuring they鈥檙e still placed within their community, ICWA was just recently overturned in the courts, which means that these children are being overwhelmingly placed with white families. This hasn鈥檛 stopped. They鈥檝e just gotten less overt about it.

Being Alone, Facebook, and Girls: Home News Turkish Photographer Beats Up Years Old Client After Learning Bride Is 15 by Jack Alexander 33 minutes ago 2 Comments erikacpataki: likeawinterbird: vague-humanoid: anthonybourdainpartsunknown: corrective action be the change you want to see in the world His name is聽 Onur Albayrak! Here鈥檚 the story. Hurriyet Daily News聽reports聽that Albayrak had been hired to photograph the July 5th wedding at Turgut 脰zal Nature Park in the eastern Turkish province of Malatya. On the day of, when he noticed that the bride-to-be didn鈥檛 look like an adult, he asked the groom her age and learned that she was only 15. 鈥淭he groom had come to my studio some two weeks ago and was alone,鈥 Albayrak tells the聽Daily News. 鈥淚 saw the bride for the first time at the wedding. She鈥檚 a child, and I felt her fear because she was trembling.鈥 Albayrak then reportedly refused to continue as the wedding photographer and attempted to stop the wedding. The argument soon turned physical when the groom attacked him as he was attempting to leave, Albayrak says. The photographer ended up breaking the client鈥檚 nose in the fight, according to local reports.
