Native Americans, the True Aboriginal Peoples Of North America

Copyright (c) 2007-2017

For hundreds of years now, the Native Americans, indeed the true aboriginal peoples of the North American continent, have experienced multiple trials and tribulations at the hands of those who first came to settle this continent. Everything that they did throughout the harsh history of their relations with the aboriginal nations, only stood to benefit European settlers, not the First Nations of this great North American continent.

When the first European settlers arrived, many of the members of this continent's First Nations tried to acquiesce and appease, not by giving away their lands, but by extending a hand of friendship to the Europeans and trying to help them with their settlements. Alas, this only served to work against the Native Americans in the long run, as they eventually faced the cruelty with which the white man would take over their lands and claim it for another nation in the name of some distant king or queen.

Indeed, not only did the white man find it necessary to take the lands away from our ancestors, those once great tribal nations, but the European settlers, also fought us, taking away our freedoms, our cultures that had been with us for thousands of years, and sadly, our religion. We were forced to make way for their people, so that their people could take our lands for themselves, and as we were forced to make way for the Europeans, much of our culture and our religions were taken from our lives.

The tribal and aboriginal customs of our Native American ancestors were destroyed and left by the wayside to rot on the long, lonely stretches of land that we would later be resigned to trek, to carve out a new niche for ourselves on this North American continent. If the natives performed the ceremonies that meant so much to the tribe and to her people, the white man sneered at us and called us dogs. If we prayed to our Great Spirit, we were surely pagans who needed instruction. We were allowed to keep so little of ourselves, that for many years, our ancestors were forced to think of themselves shamefully and to forget all of the magnificence and majesty that was once ours, when we were allowed to freely roam this beautiful North American continent.

Even today, many of our native brothers and sisters strain to survive under abject poverty, poor educational opportunities, and a desolate lifestyle and future, all a direct result of the European invasion into our once great and beautiful tribal nations. Our forefathers were pushed off of lands that were rightfully theirs and were made to live on land that was fit for no one, in what was once called the Great American desert on the Great Plains of North America. Crops would not grow, let alone flourish in the new tribal lands assigned to our people by the U.S. and Canadian governments. The spirit of our ancestors was completely diminished by the new reality of having our native lands torn from their reach and the forced removal of our ancestors from their rightful lands. A diminished heart and spirit has followed Native Americans since.

However, as young Native Americans today begin to explore the world as it really is, there are many among us who are tired of accepting the defeatist attitude that has become so prevalent within our culture, and we wish to bring our people to a more prosperous future. Our people are not stupid; we are not lost to the diseases of drugs and alcohol. We are educated, loving, and proud members of the Native American community, who choose to do more than simply accept the low standards and low expectations that the U.S. and Canadian governments had defined for us, so many years ago. We wish for all of our brothers and sisters to rise up and meet their destiny as proud and productive members of the First Nations' community.

One way that many proud Native Americans are communicating with each other, from all over this mystical continent across which we have been scattered, is through the use of myrezspace.com. This website can help you make connections to many other Native Americans, who are looking to make more out of their lives than they have been allowed to do in the past. This is a website that has been designed to enable our Native American family to come together to find new friends and to discover a way to escape the hopelessness that our ancestors carried for so long. Together, as a united group of nations and individuals, we can make meaningful advances and strides within our aboriginal culture.
