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.
