In 1865, Ishi and his family were attacked in the Three Knolls Massacre, in which 40 of their tribesmen were killed. Although 33 Yahi survived to escape, cattlemen killed about half of the survivors. The last survivors, including Ishi and his family, went into hiding for the next 44 years, and their tribe was popularly believed to be extinct. In late 1908, a group of surveyors came across a camp inhabited by two men, a middle-aged woman, and an elderly woman—Ishi, his uncle, his younger sister, and his mother, respectively. The former three fled while the latter hid herself in blankets to avoid detection, as she was sick and unable to flee. The surveyors ransacked the camp and Ishi's mother died soon after his return. His sister and uncle never returned. Ishi spent three more years in the wilderness, alone. Finally, at around the age of 50 on August 29, 1911, Ishi walked out into the western world. He was captured attempting to forage for meat near Oroville, California, after forest fires in the area. Professors at the University of California, Berkeley, Museum of Anthropology—now the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology (PAHMA)—read about him and brought him to their facility. Studied by the university, Ishi also worked with them as a research assistant and lived in an apartment at the museum for most of the remaining five years of his life. In June 1915, he temporarily lived in Berkeley with the anthropologist Thomas Talbot Waterman and his family. Ishi, having come to live in San Francisco and lacking immunity to the "diseases of civilization", was often ill. Ishi died of tuberculosis on March 25, 1916. It is said his last words were "You stay. I go."

Redbird Smith was born in 1850 at the edge of "Indian Territory"(Oklahoma) near present day Fort Smith Ar, his father was Pig Smith, a fullblood Cherokee of a very conservative family dedicated to the preservation of the ancient Cherokee religion. Pig also served in the Cherokee government as a Senator and was a respected founding member of the Keetowah Society. He was given the name ‘Smith’ by non-natives in Georgia, being a blacksmith by trade. His mother, also an ardent traditionalist was Lizzie Hildebrand, rumored to carry the "best bloodlines of the Cherokee". When Redbird was 10yrs of age his father dedicated him to the ceremonies and traditions of the Cherokee in accordance with ancient customs. Redbird believed that the greatest danger to the survival of the Cherokee as a culture was ‘acculturation.’ He feared the people would be absorbed into the ways of the white people around them and forget their own ways. Redbird’s sympathetic nature and extensive knowledge of the old ways made him a very influential man among the fullbloods and traditionalists. He served as a "Little Captain’ of the Keetowah Society, then later as Head Captain for the Illinois District, and the following year was elected a member of the Cherokee National Council. He was involved in the Four Mothers Society after it's formation to fight assimilation into the "non-Indian" world as well as the breaking up of tribal lands. When the Keetowahs eventually decided that allotment was the only option they had, Redbird and his followers withdrew from the Keetowah Society and formed the Nighthawk Keetowah, an organization determined to hold onto what culture and religion remained. Redbird was then selected as Chief of the Nighthawk Keetowahs and served until his death in 1918. Redbird pledged to return his people to the old ways, he repatriated the Sacred Wampum Belts, which are still guarded very carefully by the Keetowah Society and to this day, on Redbird’s birthday people come from miles to the ceremonial grounds near his old home, bring food and pay their respects..Pg.2- portraits of Redbird and sons. #cherokee #tsalagi #cherokeenation #indigenous #coppercolored #amerindians #northtosouth

Pg.1- Little Crow (Dakota: Thaóyate Dúta; ca. 1810 – July 3, 1863) was a chief of the Mdewakanton Dakota people and a sometimes reluctant leader during the Dakota War of 1862, his given name translates as "His Red Nation". A contemporary description of him when he was in his forties was as follows "The chief is a man of some forty five years of age and of a very determined and ambitious nature, but withal exceedingly gentle and dignified in his deportment. His face is full of intelligence when he is in conversation and his whole bearing is that of a gentleman." Little Crow was shot and killed in the summer of 1863 while he and his son Wowinapa were picking wild berries, by settlers who collected a state bounty offered to any person that killed a Dakota in Minnesota at that time. First his scalp and later his body were brought back to Hutchinson Mn. and dragged down the town's Main Street while firecrackers were placed in his ears and nose. His body was ultimately tossed into a pit at a slaughterhouse, and the head was later removed. The Minnesota Historical Society received his scalp in 1868, his skull and other bones were collected at other times and kept on display at the Minnesota State Capital from 1879 until 1915 when they were removed at the request of Little Crow's grandson Jesse Wakeman (son of Wowinapa) . In 1971, Little Crow's remains were finally returned to his grandson for burial. A small stone tablet sits at the roadside of the field where Little Crow was killed.

The Ashaninka are one of South America’s largest tribes. Their homeland covers a vast region, from the Upper Juruá river in Brazil to the watersheds of the Peruvian Andes.
Recently, the Simpatia Ashaninka have reported unusual encounters with dozens of uncontacted Indians close to their homes. It is believed that these uncontacted tribes have fled into Brazil from Peru to escape the waves of illegal loggers invading their territory, a situation with which the Ashaninka are familiar. For over a century, colonists, rubber tappers, loggers, oil companies and Maoist guerillas have invaded their lands. Their story of oppression and land theft is echoed in the lives of tribal peoples across the world. It is thought that the traditionally semi-nomadic Ashaninka have lived for thousands of years in the Peruvian Selva Central, where the Andean foothills flatten out into the Amazonian rainforest. During the late nineteenth century, some fled across the border into Brazil’s Acre state when Peru conceded vast tracts of rainforest to foreign companies for rubber tapping and coffee plantations. This resulted in the displacement of thousands of Ashaninka from their homes. In Acre state, however, the illegal logging of mahogany and cedar trees in the 1980s has decimated the Brazilian Ashaninka’s forest home. They remember this period as the ‘time of logging’, when they experienced hardship and poverty not known before contact with the loggers (brancos). Many Ashaninka died from exposure to diseases to which they had no immunity – an experience shared by other isolated tribes. Following first contact, it is common for more than 50% of a tribe to die. Today, the Ashaninka of Brazil number around 1,000, living mostly along the Amônia, Breu and Envira rivers, while the majority still lives in Peru. The total Ashaninka population is estimated at approximately 70,000. #ashaninka #protectthesacred #protectamazon #stopdeforestation #aboriginal #indigenous #coppercolored #nativeamericans #realcoppercolored

Repost from @kawa_ara_: "--#PLEASE REPOST#-- Today my thoughts and prayers go to Brazil where the current corrupt administration is on the verge of revoking land rights to indigenous tribes all over the Amazon. This would open up the world's most biodiverse region to mining, logging, ranching and petro-exploration.
