Welcome to my blog site! I am here to contribute and give another voice to the “The First Peoples” who have and continue to give to our world. The world needs to move forward in an Indigenous mind set in my opinion to continue. We (my family) live by the ancestral ways of all our ancestors, respecting each other, loving each other and our Mother. My family and I celebrate all the old ceremonies in honor of the Ancestors. We recycle, walk, and cherish her. We are the next generation of ancestors. – Raven aka Brian Frisina
Raven Redbone supports- #ProudToBe #NotYourMascot.
The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) shared the “Proud to Be” video that highlighted all the words Native peoples use to describe themselves. Not one of them was the R-word. Now, NCAI and ChangeTheMascot.org are collecting photos of people sharing what they are Proud to Be.
This photo project provides a way for Native people to share these words. Native people are encouraged to send in pictures of themselves holding signs with whatever it is that they are proud to be.
The project also provides a way for non-Native people to show their support. All non-Native people are asked to use the same language: #ProudToBe Standing With #NotYourMascot. This is a national movement of Americans across the country, Native and non-Native alike, who are standing against racism and demanding change.http://www.changethemascot.org/proud-to-be/
