this is America, why is money given all over the world and yet the first people are ignored, this is supposed to be the greatest country in history. Why why why ?

Well.....I’m all for different race Presidents, but the last president who was from another race almost destroyed America.....so.....if he does make it to the Office I hope isn’t like that. 😅

The best thing would not be to end up in the Oval Office but to be live free, truly free the way his ancestors did and the way we all did before this slave system encroached all our lives.

I really hopes he becomes president! We need a Native American president! He seems so sweet, ambitious, and intelligent. God bless him! ❤️

The Native Americans: one of the world's greatest tragedy that has been systematically buried. Untold suffering, injustice and neglect of these beautiful people, yet the government turns accusing fingers of 'human rights abuse' at other nations and goes galloping around the world like an angel.

We Americans should all be ashamed! Treatment of our Native Tribal Nations should be a priority. After all, our European ancestors took their lands for personal & Company gain all in the name of “God”

cattleNhay (3 months ago)
I hope he holds strong and reaches his goals. It would not shock me however, if the American Gov. would not allow him to become president...Corrupt as they are, they would come up with some bullshit like: He is not a natural born american because reservations are not U.S territory...or some crap like that. Anyway, nice to see they dont blame all their problems on others like black people do!

I hope the Native casino owners are doing things to help out their people in need. The government doesn't seem to be able to do much for them.
Best thing to do is be a leader take care of the reservation and the land grow food and be on the council and improve conditions on the reservation by grants to fix the trailers..

It was insensitive to have filmed the boy crying, and incredibly tacky to show his mother drunk. What is wrong with them? Isn't it enough that he talked about?

goodstorylover (3 months ago)
Thank you for the documentary, although I had debated with myself if filming the boy in distress was a good idea (I understand the reason but was really really sorry for him). Anyway, I hear he is doing well, so fingers crossed - if I was an US citizen, I would support him.Stories of people of Native Tribes used to carry a symbol of pride and courage to us, kids behind the Iron Curtain. All the best from the Czech Republic.

I have just watched this, Robert and in my opinion you are a strong hearted young man with a courageous spirit to be much admired.  It is not easy to try to rise above adversity but you are proving this can be done and you are setting a fine example to other young people.  Keep strong and pray God you will achieve much.

Is There a Higher Theology For Man, Than Knowing God personally -person to PERSON? There are those today who live in not so distant places that have a real life person to Person relationship with Lord Jesus! These humble words that are shared with brotherly love and respect, point out to the kind of relationship man was made to have with our Lord Jesus Christ. The following paragraphs, where taken from the book of Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos Entreaty” (Paraklitika), and it is a knowledge that must be shared with all those who have Lord Jesus Christ as their Heavenly Father. “Those who have made their selves worthy to see God are the True Theologians. Saint Gregorios the Theologian taught that those who saw God like Apostle Paul can safely theologize, because the sight of God cleanse them from all fantasy, and renders them true preachers of the truth making them explicitly different from philosophers and philosophies”. This is how the Saints describe theitr personal experience “UNDER CONDITIONS OF CONTINUED PRAYER AND UPWARD EXTENSION THAT HAVE AS CLIMAX THE UNION WITH GOD, MAN IS POSSESSED ENTIRELY FROM LIGHT OF DIVINE GLORY THAT IS SEND FOURTH ETERNALLY FROM THE TRIAD. AFTER THE MIND IS SEIZED FROM THE DIVINE LIGHT AND ENTERS THE LIGHT IT BECOMES ITS SELF-LIGHT. THUS LIKE LIGHT, IT SEES LIGHT” The vision of Divine Light (returning to God’s presence) This is what Lord Jesus told St. Symeon when He became worthy to His presence in His divine Light. “It is me, God, Who became man for you; and behold that I have made you, as you see, and shall make you god”. http://www.monachos.net/content/patristics/studies-fathers/67 Understanding the Orthodox Christian Faith https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxdbE7033Ho
