Okay everyone let’s talk about the myth of what Native Americans look like
My boyfriend and I are from the Lumbee tribe on the East Coast. He also has Tuscarora descent. I have brown eyes and brown hair, and he has dirty blond hair and green eyes.
I’m brown skinned and he’s brighter than I. But we are both completely Native American.
I hate to hear him speak about wishing he was darker or had brown eyes.. I hate when he wishes he was the same color as I. I hate when he says he wishes that his children will be darker than him.
He dances, sings, creates beadwork, works for the tribe, yet he is still insecure. I wish he would understand that it doesn’t matter..
That’s why I do what I do. I’m adamant and passionate about Natives; especially on the east coast. We are NOT what you see on TV and movies. We’re every shade under the sun.

White people get mad when you wear a band t shirt of a band you don’t listen to, but they’re fine with wearing headdresses from cultures they know and care nothing about.
