November is Native American Heritage Month. This is a hodgepodge post of … the update, information, etc. I’ll try to keep it upbeat.
One interesting thing I saw and will hopefully remember to follow is this:
The Cherokee Nation says it has a right to a congressional delegate. Now it wants Congress to fulfill its promise.
I saw on twitter that a congressional representative had been selected – we’ll see what the legislative body does. I don’t know if it’s more prevalent, or my timeline, or what, but I’m seeing more and more from Native/First Nations people and I’m glad. The US (and various other countries) have a lot to apologize for, and make up for.
Compounded by the attitude of this current administration and probably the less I say here the better.
Anyway, I had at least one post lined up but the author has gone MIA – so if you or anyone would like to write a guest post for the month I’d be very very happy to have you. If you don’t know, the Smithsonian Heritage Months – Black History, Women’s History, Asian Pacific American Heritage, Pride, Latinx Heritage, and Native/First Nation Heritage Months are what we try to celebrate here at ALBTALBS. It used to be “limited” to USians who fall under the umbrella category, then to anyone who fell under the umbrella category, and last year or so I opened it to ANYONE who wanted to write a thing.
We do have a few Native American romance authors out there, and you can see guest posts from years past in the archives.
We could probably do with some tag clean up/better tagging but … 🤷🏻♀️ this is a money pit pet project, so you get what you see. 😛 Truly though – thanks for sticking with us <3
Oh! And – if you’re interested in more information and education, personally I’ve been checking tweets Rebecca Nagle’s timeline.
Happy #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth. Everyday this month I am sharing a history lesson with the hashtag #WeAreStillHere.
Today’s lesson is BLOOD QUANTUM.

Lastly if you or anyone would like to write a guest post for any of the Smithsonian Heritage Months in 2020, or if you’d like to step up and shout out own voices individuals in the community and run the celebrations for any month … please. Do – I’d love to have you. Let’s talk.
