Re: “Burners Torched Over Native Party

my wish for people of European descent.

reconnect with your ancestors.

"whiteness" is a social construct that erases ethnicity and ancestors. This construct leaves a lot of Euro-Americans feeling empty, and then along with the sense of entitlement that comes along with "whiteness", many begin gorging on the ways of non-white people to fill the void.

If native folks walked around saying that they are the Pope, "because they took a papacy workshop", how ridiculous would that look?

please look past the guilt of your inherited privilege, and do this important spirit work, this important SOCIAL work, so we can all heal and move forward.

Euro-America, your own ancestors cry for attention. If it is even to retrieve a lullaby that your great-grandmother sang. So much positive transformation can occur once you, as a conscious collective, reconnect with the riches of your own heritage that you have buried.

For the respect of your own bloodline, and others, please heed the call.
