sarcasm aside, we all have our 'tribal roots'. if you have time and haven't already researched your pre-christian roots, this may be of help. there are many non-native souls who stand alongside native rights, yet feel they don't have the 'right' to voice their opinion. not so, it goes heard and appreciated.
understanding your own tribal roots and the destruction of your ancestors beliefs, ways, customs by roman christianity (not to mention the myriad of killings and witch hunts) may help you gain the confidance to use that voice.
the link above was done on a quick search, i'm sure there's better ones. anyways, enjoy solstice and take part in or do honour to aboriginal day in your own way (i'll smudge and say prayers and thanks).
(BTW, I just noticed that I don't have you linked on my blogroll, so I will put you in now.)
I'll send you an email about my "tribal routes" as soon as I have a bit more time.... :)
