It is not a matter of over sensitivity. The ideas that are perpetuated by these representations are a very real issue that affects many others in Indian Country. We have children being taken from fit homes & removed from their tribes—government sanctioned kidnapping. Human trafficking…

Mhmm. Forwarding this to everyone from now on.

Day six of #abundancevibes is the tripod headstand variation. Having missed a few days because the poses are quite advanced for me & my lame back, I began to think about my self expression. Through this I have realised that I’ve got an abundance of ways to express myself! For day six I drew the tripod headstand a la @kristenpro instead of a photo of myself, as this looks much more graceful. Ft. green hair, septum ring, tattoos I hope to have, an lots of jewellery~ Day five is missing as I wasn’t comfortable posting any of the photos I have, but I did enjoy trying the pose and the good stretch it gave me. Thanks to mister @iamvibes for this as well 🙏💞

“
Loretta Edjericon of Fort Resolution suffered black eye, bruises
RCMP in N.W.T. are investigating a complaint about a Fort Resolution officer assaulting a community elder.
Margo Edjericon says her 71-year-old mother was injured when two officers pushed their way into her mother’s house at about 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Margo Edjericon says the officers were looking for a young woman. She says she told the two officers that the person they were looking for was in the house but was sleeping and she told them to come back later.
“They pushed their way in,” she said. “One cop … pinned me down on the floor with my arms behind my back and had his knee in my back.”
The other officer continued into the house.
“He came in the hallway and my mom was coming from the bedroom, and that other cop elbowed my mom in the face and had her pinned against the wall.”
Margo Edjericon says her mother, Loretta Edjericon — who is also the mother of Fort Resolution chief Louis Balsillie — suffered two black eyes, facial swelling and bruising to her arm. They’re waiting for test results to find out if she also suffered a concussion and broken nose.
“I trusted the cops all my life, till this happened,” said Margo Edjericon.
RCMP spokesperson Const. Elenore Sturko says a senior G Division officer from outside the Fort Resolution detachment is investigating the incident.

This makes me so sad, I honestly have no words.

The Native American guy in my class got sick of the girl next to him asking what her “Indian name” was, so he told her she was Squealing Beaver.

Day three of #AbundanceVibes is the Reverse Warrior. Unfortunately I cannot end back as much as I would like to, but I am working on it. Abundance comes in many forms but what I am noticing today is an abundance of perspectives and an abundance of pain, though the two aren’t relating and are just my observations. To represent an abundance of perspectives, I have decided to zoom the photo in and rotate it, while I made it dark to represent the abundance of sadness I felt today when reflecting on my abundance of loss. It is from observance of perspective and pain that I have grown as an individual, so what’s not to be thankful for? @iamvibes @kristenpro #yoga #reversewarrior

Right now I’m very sad, but I can’t talk about it on social media or to anyone because I’ll just seem jealous and unprofessional if I do. I seriously want to cry.

This whole thing honestly has me feeling unwanted and unappreciated, but there’s absolutely no way for me to run it up without seeming like I have a “sore loser” type of attitude.

I don’t know what to do. To make it worse I’ve been ignored by more people than helped with my campaign. My friends or old coworkers (that always ask for favours) don’t even respond. And my insurance hasn’t processed so i have no more relaxers or painkillers so my back and jaw are intensely hurting.

With that kind of pain I’m just heartbroken over what has been bothering me. Such a big opportunity, gone, because I was forgotten. Am I wrong to feel like I do?

Day two of the #AbundanceVibes modeled by @kristenpro is the pyramid variation, which I found very hard and painful with my back the way it is. Grabbing my ankle made it an amazing stretch though! Of course I have my feet on relevé. Another thing in abundance that means a lot to me is good vibes. Since starting my little personal campaign on Go Fund Me, I’ve emailed quite a few people - and even had a friend who was sending emails on my behalf, so sweet right? Thanks @cherriedamour! A few have responded that they need to focus money in other areas but are sending love and light my way, and I love that. I am thankful for an abundance of such wonderful people in my life. Does this tune sound familiar, @iamvibes? Absolutely addicted to it for some reason. Odd repetitive video of me via Magisto. #yoga

Dear Santa,

I know you are very busy and that you only read the most reblogged wishes, but I couldn’t find the a-very-wantering-christmas “submit” button on the new tumblr and decided to just tag your blog in this. Hopefully you will read it, despite your busy schedule - OR others that stumble upon this will read it and go to my Go Fund Me. Really anything helps, be it a donation, gift, or simple sharing. I’m grateful for anything at all.

Since I was little I have been told that you make your list and check it twice, based on being naughty or nice. Assuming this is true and that you see these things, I’m sure you have seen me working on my little crowdfunding page in order to visit my grandmother. Not much to watch, so I’m on the nice list I’m sure. Since you have so many people to check I guess you haven’t had time to read it.

My page (http://gofundme.com/ehrw90) was created in order to raise $1,100 to visit my grandma. It makes me very sad to hear how lonley she sounds, and California and Oklahoma are very far away. The page details how my father died in 2010, cause unknown, and how my grandfather died shortly after in 2011, of ALS; money is tight and so there is a big chance I won’t be able to go, so I made the page in hopes of getting money for my bus fare, winter clothing, and spending money since she only has about $60 a month after bills (though that information wasn’t shared in the page.)

Since you grant wishes for nice clothing and accessories I decided to make a cute little wishlist on Pinterest with items I would appreciate. Because I have no winter clothing, if you were to grant a wish for one of those items it would really narrow down my list of things to buy - which may leave me with enough money to make the doctor’s visit I didn’t add.

For convenience I’ve just used a screenshot so you can see all the photos in one place. I’ll make sure to leave out cookies for you even if you don’t read this~

Have you heard?

I’m doing an online personal campaign through Go Fund Me to raise enough money to visit my grandmother. The story is detailed in the donation page. Since I’d rather not be repetitive or make myself cry again, I’ll just leave the link here.

http://gofundme.com/ehrw90

Even Audrey Kitching has retweeted! (Unfortunately twitter mucked the link all up and I’m having to tweet each individual, which really hurts my chances of donations if people click before rt/fav.)

In October I’ll even be doing a tarot party which is open to anyone willing to come, local or not. It was the idea of one of my teachers from middle school. For those who can’t attend, I am also offering readings via email. The donation amount is up to you, though due to taxes I request it be over $5. 

Please spread the word, reblog, read the page, donate, request a reading. Anything helps!
