I had a Native epiphany of sorts, or more correctly a logical conclusion as to why my thinking was WRONG, yes it is me, yet again

nobody is harder on me, than me.

My thinking was wrong, because my mindset was that the corporation was to enhance and improved the lives of Alaska Natives and give them a path to equality

that is dumb as fk, the real goal of any Corporation is to make money, get money, be paid money.
the problem comes in when you can not sell your stock, which makes it kind of useless, you can will the stock to anyone you choose, but the value is inhibited by its lack of buyers.

My epiphany came while thinking of those facts.

The Native Corporation Game is Political, it has to be.

The true game is trick or treat. The Corporate world is known for its political undertones, as in they are one and the same.
its Politics, and after seeing this election, I want no part in that game.

I know I have spoke of Corruption, but its not, it is business as usual.

we all have a choice to do good or to do for ourselves, well if your on the the former, your in for a hard ride.

your far better off being a political juggernaut. play the game and collect your money.

for instance, Our Corporation has been run by my family since inception, and it was created for my Grandparents. We should actually be in Lesnoi, but that ship has sailed.

we were definitely given the short end of the stick.

our whole deal was a parcel of land which amounts to 25 acres per shareholder, we now have about 100, so that amounts to 7.5 acres, they gave in the homestead ACT free Native

ok, to be continued … dupe is in town 🙂

Wow, that was a few fun days, rode dirt bikes and went shooting, love both of those, but much more important to see Marc, just a good all around smart dude, from our desert, Canyon Country

 

anyway, where was eye? I No, lambasting the Native Corporate communities, but alas dear fellow, that is far from my views, the perpetrator is none other than our government, but then again, even “that” is not what my epiphany was about.

My “Epiphany” was when I cam to the conclusion that these Corporations are doing as intended, Jobs for professionals and Lawyers, they were not intended as a “social” tool for tribes, actually they are quite separate. I had no Idea, I was on the wrong team.

 

We have had a Monarch in charge since not to much past inception in 1972, and that is the same with Most of these tribes, these are political positions and should be treated as such, what the hell I mean? just that they are not democratic, more closely relating, Russian Czars, ok all kidding aside, I do believe they are intended as good, get Native people interested in Business Ventures, but to do so without proper training or financial backing, which is useless, or puts assets in danger, more specifically the land, but It is a good tool to try their hands at business. I disagree with them being in charge of the lands also, as it is seen more as an asset, than tribal land, as was the case with our small stake we gave away up on Waterfall bay area, makes me sick, that we did not get conservation rights, instead they were whisked under the rug, by some smooth talking lawyers and land whores

I found out that I have NO TRiBE, WTF? no tribe? I was tricked, we all were, the assimilation is almost complete, 🙂

No really, No tribe, they used to ask me for my tribe, I would say UGANIK NATIVES, they never found it, but I had my blood quantum card, but what this does is to cut ties with our Native American Heritage, more Specifically our Yupik/Aleut/Athabascan roots, we got roots baby!!

But there is good News, I can apply for 2 tribes, my Mom is from Seldovia Tribe, and my DAd is from the Woody ISland tribe Tangirnaq. tang er Nack? not sure. Even thinking of renaming my company 2Tribes Construction, sounds catchy, dont you think?

Anyway, that is my intention, to at least make sure that my descendants are covered if they so desire, pretty sure the whole Native stock, business will come to a head, at least some sweeping changes to a longer vision for Alaskan Natives,

but I have also came to the conclusion, that, the tribe is the more reasonable path to being a bona fide Injun

Perhaps it is the time to be “traveling on” wayward man following the land, fade away… It would be a shame, my only real home will always be Kodiak, land of Our people. ok now enough of this for awhile, time for other topics
