When are the people of the world going to learn to respect the indigenous peoples and leave them to live their lives in peace in their homelands? They are not invisible and deserve to be respected. Their connection to the earth is something we would do well to emulate.

I am SO FED UP with the Dominant Society ALWAYS encroaching on Indigenous People. Since America, Africa, Australia were colonized they have massacred tribes of people, destroyed tribal cultures and land, traditional foods and all the NATURAL WAYS OF LIFE FOR INDIGENOUS PEOPLE. WHEN ARE THESE PEOPLE GOING TO RECEIVE RETRIBUTION????? ARE THEY EVEN GOING TO RECEIVE RETRIBUTION????
