Non-Natives, through no fault of their own, will misconstrue this as a dance, when it’s anything but. He’s shaming his opponents. We Lakota call this counting coup.

I’ve ran the numbers. Done my homework. The only way we’re gonna save the planet is if we all — go Native.
I will not lie to you. The first time I read this book it angered me. I wanted vengeance and retribution and justice. But then I remember my mother telling me to educate and not hate. Besides giving me life — she also gifted me her beautiful wisdom. That I apply everyday.
George Armstrong Custer fancied himself a man of faith. Before he attacked an encampment of unarmed Native non-combatants, he petitioned the lord for victory. At Little Bighorn, Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho Coalition Forces simply enabled him to deliver that prayer — in person.pic.twitter.com/L88E7UuDsU
Someone needs to show me where in the Bible it says to colonize and kill Indigenous people — then claim ownership of our land in gods’s name — because I ain’t seeing it.
My issue with non-Natives claiming to descend from a Native “princess” is that it suggests Indigenous tribes were ruled over by a monarch. We had great leaders, but they were not kings, our chiefs ascended to leadership roles by serving the people — Natives bowed to no sovereign.
