          So she’s Alaska native but not Inuit. heck you I was close. Although to be fair, I should have assumed Athabaskan-speaking since the Navajo + Apache are also Athabaskan.

            You serious? Irish Americans, German Americans, Italian Americans, Scots Americans, WASP Americans (formerly "British/English Americans"), the list goes on. Motherheckers can’t go five minutes without bringing up genealogy.

            The monolithic idea of "white American ethnicity" is an anti-thesis to an actual ethnic identity.

            being drunk and loud is not an ethnic identity
            >German Americans
            being fat and drunk and eating sausages is not an ethnic identity
            > Italian Americans
            being an annoying cunt is not an ethnic identity
            >Scots Americans

            those are just americans stupid

            those are all half-hearted attempts at having an ethnic identity. americans think that having an irish ancestor 200 years ago makes them irish. it does not. your post is proof that americans have no culture but alcoholism, obesity, capitalism, and protestantism.

            talk to an irish person and ask what they think about irish-americans.

          wtf kind of globalist mystery meat indian is this. it is inconceivable that the the navajo and the gwichin would have interacted in pre-colonial times

            > is inconceivable that the the navajo and the gwichin would have interacted in pre-colonial times
            The Navajo and the Gwich’in are closely related ethnic groups, the former (along with the Apache) originated in a migration southward from an originally northern Athabaskan-speaking population.

            In any case, it is not /inconceivable/ as trade networks extended across the Americas, and some important natural resources (like chert, obsidian, or flint) had to be traded hundreds of miles to places where it did not form naturally. Mesoamerican traders were probably present all along the Mississipi River; there is significant evidence of two-way trade in turquoise, pottery, and even parrots between Mississipian and Mesoamerican cultures.

            Lastly, intermarriage between nations was incredibly common in ancient times as language, lineage, and social ties were far more important than some modern concept of "race" or "ethnicity." I can’t speak for Athabaskans, but most Yokutsan cultures in Central California were initially matrilocal and one’s nationality was defined by one’s matrilineal descent — you could be a Wowol but marry a Chunut, and your children would be Chunut and probably speak Chunut foremost.

            I reiterate, White Americans wish they had an ethnic identity so bad. A woman with strong ties to her nation, traditions, and culture is "globalist mystery meat" but obese euromutts with divorced parents and who have never set foot in Europe, are apparently superior. Your culture is literally capitalism, globalism, and Protestantism.

          also check out "ginew" if youre into native american made workwear, like selvedge denim made by indians. lmao. im not hating but it seems gimmicky too me. charging like 600 dollars for a denim jacket because its stitched by native american hands. i guess if youre a native american person, i get it, you want to support your own ppl. thats awesome. but if youre a white guy like me, i really dont care if a native american, a mexican woman, or a chinaman is working the sewing machine. like, who cares.

          Quick question: Is it cultural appropriation if I buy these?

      That’s clearly an Inuk you hecking idiot.

      Also this is demonstrably false.

      These are the two quickest references I can find off-handedly but maybe later I’ll find more if you continue to be a whiny gay.
