Nučhakaƛa! I am proud of who I am and I am not extinct nor an anthropological artifact.
This young man is experiencing the same phenomenon many of us do, to be excluded from practising or participating in his own culture on his own land. Even I, a disabled woman, has been illegally arrested and detained for performing spiritual activities, which is wearing my regalia and singing songs on my own UNCEDED territory, this is now our reality in North America!
Everyone, young, old, female, male must and should be allowed to be themselves, so all please put on your regalia and walk proud, tall and exhibit your own nučhakaƛa because the bottom line is, we are who we are and no one has the right to make anyone else feel ashamed of being in their own body, or beliefs or heritage.
