Who am i?
A first nation descendant, blood of the Akimel O’odham and the Choctaw flows in my veins, the spirit of a Navajo, Mission, Apache and Tohono O’odham rests in my heart. I believe in the laws of nature more than the laws of man. Nature is my church. Eagle Eye, or Ba’ag Wuhi, was a name given to me by my Je’e (mother) when i was little. My civilized name is Rachael, as my love is Brian, creator rest his soul. We are still a family and soulmates, i will join him someday. I am a first nation descendant, i was lost but i was found by love and protected by the prayers and faith of his family. And i couldnt be more blessed ❤️💚💛 #nativeamerican#teammeech#nativepride#gilariver#akimeloodham#choctaw#firstnations#indigenous#nativeandproud

Slavery was an institution among Native Americans. After Columbus discovered Hispaniola (1492), the Spanish settlers attempted to enslave the indigenous Tainos, part of the Arawak cultural group. Spanish officials in Madrid debated the status of Native Americans and whether they could be enslaved. Very early in the Spanish colonial period, settlers began noticing that their Taino slaves were dying in large numbers. Before the debate in Madrid was finalized, the Tainos were decimated by European diseases. Population estimates vary, but the Taino population plummeted from some 400,000 people to less than 3,000 during the first vthreec decades of Spanish rule. Unable to use the Native Americans for forced agricultural labor, the settlers began to import captive Africans. The Spanish monarchs, Ferdinand I and Isabella, granted permission to the colonists of the Caribbean to import African slaves (1501). The Portuguese and Spanish were already dealing in slaves from their trading posts along the western coast of Africa. This was the beginning of the Atlantic slave trade. The first captive Africans were sold as slaves in Santo Domingo (1503)
A little history . . . Oklahoma comes from the Choctaw phrase okla hummus, literally meaning “red people “. Choctaw Nation Chief Allen Wright suggested the name in 1866 during treaty negotiations with the federal government on the use of Indian Territory, where he envisioned an all-Indian state controlled by the U.S. Superintendent of Indian Affairs.
