hail
i just wanted to make people aware of an excellent book and site that i just discovered.
the book is "understanding the connections between black and aboriginal peoples"
it discusses ancient and contemporary links between black and native american peoples.
given its estimated that at least a third of all black people in america have native american blood its an important subject for us to check out.
i recommend this book it doesnt shy away from heavy politics and the chapter on 'resistance" was very deep showing influence of black panthers on indgenous peoples and also how the UHURU movement influenced radical indiggenous people in canada

personally i have alot of problems with the work of katz
not only does his work exclude so much rich black indian histories in central and south america but
his focus on making black indians seem like something dated as opposed to relevant and contemporary is very dangerous not to mention alienating to young black indians alive today that want contemporary reference points to their culture.something i was very happy to see that this book 'understanding the connections between black and aboriginal peoples,.."was chock full of contemporary references at the same time obviously linked to the ancient.
when katz foucuses on the past he puts black indians into the cultural relic zone
nice and palpatable for academics
what he leaves out consistently is discussion of present day black indian /black and native american political alliances and what this can mean for the destructiion of babylon

check out www.firethistime.com
go to raging blackindian
then go to page marked resistance
it has a very curent and to me non romanticised evaluation of black and native resistance

I'm glad that you know your roots. Hope someday to know mines.
Never met my grandmother but was told that she was full breeded cherokee. My father was a half breed and did'nt stay in contact with his siblings. Congratulation on your peoples official recognitions. The man wants to keep us in the dark. He dont want us to ever feel proud to be who we are. Thats why documentations of the slaves was never kept. Most of us are still proud to be black. But many are still ashamed. Knowledge is power. Thankyou for your information and again congradulations.
