American Indians Rising


@AmericanIndian8 is among one of the most powerful community voices on Twitter.

Its constant unvarnished news and viewpoints from the American Indian perspective inspires hope for American Indians and others who believe being true to your spirit is essential to survival as a species.

I had the great pleasure of speaking with @AmericanIndian8 spokesperson John Looking Glass. John recounts his history and the struggles of his communities and that of other tribes.

True to @AmericanIndian8 form, John doesn’t add sugar to his views, telling others who want to help American Indians to first shut up and listen.

  1. Loved the show Listening to Myoglasi/Lookingglass is an experience No PC with him I am honored to be his sister & part of TAIRP NETworks I am also the Kiowa Apache he spoke of in the show John may be urban & live in a Jewish neighborhood But he is a true Oglala Lakotah warrior He remembers where he comes from & he remembers the people he is part of May others get to hear both of your words Night *Tdahn/Star*Kiowa Apache*

    • It was an honor to interview John and I hope others can understand just how important your own words are Tdan/Star: “he remembers where he comes from and he remembers the people he is part of….” Thank you for your comment.
