    Preach! It's interesting how us Indigenous and Puerto Rican's have a lot in common. Colonization and it's effects being one like many societies of color. We're in a similar boat, a crisis happens either on the reservation or even to us fairly privileged city skins, the US government, it's resources, and or laws do nothing because they have "no jurisdiction"... or they wish not to in many cases. A paradigm not unlike Puerto Rican citizens, if an Indigenous person is federally recognized (card carrying) we're part of the land of America (which was ours to begin with) but yet we're not seen nor counted as American citizens. To some extent that's true for those of us who aren't card carrying mainly by choice because of what that means for our peoples. There is no word for "Me" or "I" in one of the languages belonging to 1 of the groups of peoples I come from only "We" and "Us" , honestly that's what has kept us alive and thriving as long as we have. We live in a bizarre in-between, a balance beam of one foot in our society, our ways, and community one out. So we feel you in an all too familiar way and hear you Puerto Rico! <3

    On a personal note this is why I like many don't like colonizers. They bring nothing but destruction/their trash to our peoples and societies. Don't like their mentality, their ignorance, their arrogance, their ways.. or lack thereof. Can't stand anything about them. Parts of East Africa have been fortunate in the long run. They saw what was going on throughout Africa and were like "Don't let those mutha f'ers up in here, we don't want them here. Let us govern ourselves" hence the perceived historical "aggression" toward outsiders because they witnessed the typical oppression colonization brings. People can say whatever they want about the regions being spoken of but at least they didn't have the boot or exploitation on them (at least not for very long) like much of the African continent has experienced.  There's a reason no slaves were taken from East Africa for example and to this day are not colonized.
