News From Indian Country

We’re leaving for Eleuthera Island soon. When our son Jacob was born twenty years ago, my wife Ivy wanted him to know his history. She worked tirelessly and used online sources and phone calls to elders and relatives to find and track down any leads she could find. She was able to find the grave of her great uncle Johnny Mercer in the American Cemetery in Luxembourg.

News From Indian Country

There has been so much going on in this pseudo-bizarro world we exist in now I don’t know where to begin my rant. Seriously. What I know for sure is that for we Indigenous Peoples it began in 1492 when a serial killer and his murderous crew set their nasty feet on sacred lands. Then things began to get really bad. Since then 100 million plus Indigenous People died of genocide and the european colonial program is continuing, successfully in many ways but they have never been able to wipe us out.
