If you know you have Native American genealogy, I ask you this.... What are you doing about it?

Are you learning about your family's genealogy and are you connecting to your culture in your community?
Are you familiarizing yourself with the atrocious crimes against indigenous Nations and taking action in some form or another?
Are you stepping out and correcting the misrepresentations about indigenous peoples or attempting to educate the masses about ways we can honor truth in history?

Why I Won’t Give You Ten Tips to Manage Your Privilege
Privilege is never having to explain to your child how to survive being stopped by a police officer or feeling confident they won’t be stopped at all. Privilege is never having to discuss your sexual attractions or correct your gender pronoun. Privilege is being late and no one attributes it to your race. Privilege is forgetting something, being reminded of it, and the other person doesn’t assume it happened because of your age. Privilege is feeling physically safe regardless of where you are walking or what you are wearing. Privilege is never being asked what country you are from even though you were born in the United States.

Privilege is never being called a racial slur or having that slur be the name of a professional sports team. Privilege is being able to express disagreement without being perceived as “emotional” or “angry.” Privilege is not being accused of using bad judgment because of the size of your house or because you bought the car you actually want. Privilege is knowing the only reason you didn’t get the job is because someone else was better qualified. Privilege is not having to explain your religious holidays and knowing they are legally observed. Privilege is not having to ask for an able-bodied accessible room when you check into a hotel. Privilege is knowing that your rights were written into the original version of the Constitution, not retrofitted as an amendment, and they can’t ever be threatened or overturned.


Equity is the New Privilege

Say what? Equity is fairness, not defined subjectively but instead defined by whatever is necessary to get to the best possible outcome for each person.


No one can bequeath someone with power they already have.


If you have privilege, you are better positioned to be heard, acknowledged, and believed by others with power and privilege. Your privilege grants you access to people who make decisions and take actions that either reinforce oppression or dismantle it. This is the best place to focus your energy because oppressed people have been advocating for themselves forever, supporting others experiencing oppression, and doing what they can to influence the powerful and the privileged. They have covered their bases, now you can cover yours. Deal with your own people, the ones that share your privilege. Talk about it. Explore it. Challenge it. It’s time to disrupt the dangers of privilege and co-opt its power in order to create an equitable society.
