  1. Great article and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is actually the best place to ask but do you people have any ideea where to get some professional writers? Thanks in advance 🙂

  2. I simply want to say I am newbie to blogs and honestly savored this web-site. More than likely I’m going to bookmark your site . You amazingly come with beneficial article content. Bless you for revealing your website.

  3. Have the Actual Immigrants calling themselves AMERICANS done anything Right for the Lesser soul or have they Pilfered Cultures of the Cultured Owners of the Land they Conquered. Extremely touching conversation that makes ones blood boil.

  4. Thank you for interviewing writers on the show! What an exquisite voice, what thoughtful questions– I've seen several reviews recommending this book and I'm excited to start reading it!

  5. Hey call them Americans..not native or Indian… seriously you guys need to find another concept for that ideal that immigrants/settlers in America came up with and imposed on… well.. everyone !!! I guess guns and atomic stuff got everybody's ancestors scared before.. but,,ehh .. i think Karma will be the bitch standing eventually… Everybody else knows there is an ancestral claim to their land other than any other person who had no land but a on claim a constitution of ideals…Mmmh… greatest magicians are those that told you that something don't exist…or so the saying goes.. LOL

  6. Amazing, I'm going to buy her book and I'm so touched by this.. it's like this on the Navajo nation as well and I want to make a change for my family in Monument Valley, and it's not gonna be easy of course but it wont take long if we take the right steps. #ProudNavajo #July4th

  7. You don't need white people trying to save you now, after all the atrocities committed by them. The answer is found within and not through others, one day they might overcome the odds or not, but that will be decided by them and no one else.

  8. Being a child of a healer is challenging… sometimes healers neglect their children, as they dedicate so much time to helping others. And when it comes to seeing damage in their own children is hard for them. They don’t want to face how they neglected to protect and heal their own children. I am not an indigenous person, but my father was a natural healer and he didn’t see the abuse I faced as a child. And as a teenager he was able to see somehow that I wasn’t lying… somehow he had to see past his own failings and help heal me of the abuse. And I have an adopted sister who is an indigenous person of Australia… and Aborigine… one of the original people of Australia. And native people of Australia face similar challenges to that of the indigenous people of North America. Their sacred lands were taken away from them by the government… they also have a strong connection with the land… and they face a lot of challenges with DV, sexual abuse, alcohol and discrimination, etc. I understand her story is her story… but at the same time her story is the story of many indigenous people… not just in the US, but there is a connection to many people through out the world and I am glad she had the courage to share her story with the world

  9. She's not Native American. She grew up in British Columbia and as you listen to the interview you can hear her use the term 'Indigenous'. Even Trevor catches onto it through the interview despite initially using the wrong term.

  10. Sometimes I feel like the daily show occasionally has uninteresting guests that only seem to be on the show so they can force ‘diversity’ on their audience, but by doing that they sacrifice the purpose of the show for hypothetical political gains

  11. It is sad when white men killed 10 million Native Americans, as it is sad that those 1rst world nations ripped off and stole natural resources from those 3rd world nations, but one thing Godless people are not able to realize is that this world was created by the Almighty Creator and He is the Owner and provider for all of His uncountable creatures 24/7. Each nation has been given respite. But, if you do not follow from the rules, which He has sent down to us in order to be happy in this life, we would only bring disasters upon ourselves. That was how those Godless Native Americans had to destroyed, or Australian Aborigines have been frozen in time, so as so called Muslims being destroyed and humiliated all over the world only because they stopped following from their book and started to follow satanic books besides the only one book of our Creator. Only few people in this world understand the system of our Creator, yet majority of us only follow our own conjectures without any proofs.

  12. Men that abuse deserve death. White people damn devils (known); indigenous people (Israelites according to the Bible) are so beautiful. Salvation is coming; the struggles of today can’t equal to the kingdom. America is Babylon the Great.
    Luke 21: 25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

    26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

    27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

    28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

    29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;

    30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

    31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

    32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

    33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

    34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

    35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

    36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

  13. This was a great interview. I am glad she has shared her life story. Healing is needed. It maybe a long path, but I pray it is done in a good way. Thanks, for bringing attention to this. Do not forget the many missing women (of many tribes/nations), who cannot speak. Some efforts are being made to bring attention to the problem. Self determination is crucial, but I will let others speak to that. All are sacred.
