I find this very interesting. I grew up when the skate board culture was reaching it's popularity in the early 80's. It at the time was a white kid suburban type thing ofcourse some of us joined in. It is now a very popular past time. I enjoy it. I however just don't see it as part of our culture. I think there are many other things that our youth could focus on that could keeped them focused our give them a better work ethic. Maybe learning some of and reviving some of the traditional ways.

Hello, As a member of NMAI, I am very pleased to see that more and more information is being presented about Native/African American Culture through the museum with various projects and topics. It is long overdue. Much light needs to be brought to our unique culture and its origins. I also would like to make a correction that in the southeastearn States such VA,SC,NC as well as several others the history of Native/African American Descendants is that both people were held in bondage on plantations and sold into slavery together very early on or ran away into the low country, swamps etc to escape the brutality of the European onslaught. Some books that I would recommend is: Villany Often Goes Unpunished: Indian Records from the North Carolina General Assembly Session, 1675-1789 (Paperback) In Full Force and Virtue: North Carolina Emancipation Records, 1713-1860 (Paperback) by William L. Byrd William L. Byrd (Author) (This book has records and documents of enslaved Native American women and chidren who were enslaved and emancipated in the carolinas) The enslavement of the American Indian in colonial times By Barbara J. Olexer The Indian Slave Trade: The Rise of the English Empire in the American South ... By Alan Gallay There are many other articles, Documents that I would hope to contribute in the future. So blues music has very deep and historical roots in the Native/African Community. Deeper than we realize. Some of these Native Cultures had customs and languages were totally lost or forgotten and may have channeled it's way through the blues music and other day to day customs that we are totally unaware of. Thank you. Shoshone Pee Dee/Chowanoc Descendant
