This poem by Richard Walker explains what ''To Those Who Carry the Blood'' means.
We are called many things. Native American, American Indian, NDN, Indigenous among others less flattering names.
My people are the Anishinaabe, The First or Orginal People.
It doesn't matter if your 1/64 or full blood, it's the blood that you carry.
You can feel the pain in his words when the government tells you that you are not what you know that you are.
CoH applies as do the 3 B's. Be respectful. Be on-topic or BE GONE.
