“the bones of our ancestors were thrown away and we could never find them to return them to the ground”
By Eric Hemenway, Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians
Burial traditions vary from tribe to tribe, but one constant remains among them: caretaking of the dead is something all tribes consider sacred.
“Brother, they did not allow our dead to rest.
They dug up their graves, and the bones of our ancestors were thrown away and we could never find them to return them to the ground.”
Odawa War Chief Blackbird, 1813
The War of 1812 was devastating to warriors and civilians of countless tribal villages alike, and in many cases, traditional burial practices were not honored.
During a council with the British and their allied Indian warriors along the Grand River near Niagara in 1813, Odawa war chief Blackbird gave a vivid speech detailing how American soldiers were desecrating the burials of tribal people:
“Those behind us came up and did mischief.
Brother, last year at Chicago and St. Joseph’s the Big Knives destroyed all our corn.
This was fair, but, brother, they did not allow our dead to rest.
They dug up their graves, and the bones of our ancestors were thrown away and we could never find them to return them to the ground.
“Brother, I have listened with a good deal of attention to the wish of our father.
If the Big Knives, after they kill people of our color, leave them without hacking them to pieces, we will follow their example. They have themselves to blame.
The way they treat our killed, and the remains of those that are in their graves in the west, makes our people mad when they meet the Big Knives.
Whenever they get any of our people into their hands they cut them like meat into small pieces.
We thought white people were Christians.
They ought to show us a better example.
We do not disturb their dead.
What I say is known to all the people present.
I do not tell a lie. Brother, it is the Indian custom when engaged to be very angry, but when we take prisoners to treat them kindly.”
Blackbird’s words are a direct glimpse into the problems indigenous people were facing to protect their dead and their traditions.
Warriors of native nations would not go back and dig up the graves of dead enemies; such actions were forbidden.
Highly disrespectful actions against killed warriors spurred action.
The dead could not defend themselves; it was the responsibility of the living to do so.
The indigenous people of the United States would fight for nearly two more centuries to have their dead honored.
In 1990, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act was passed.
This federal law enables tribes and lineal descendants to reclaim ancestral remains from museums and federal agencies in the United States.
To this very day, tribes are working to return their sacred dead back to the earth.

2023.05.29 00:56 ZappyDuck My experience with VectorMarketing
Being in this subreddit for a few years, I never expected myself to be part of an MLM scam (well, they're all scams lol).submitted by ZappyDuck to antiMLM [link] [comments]
Several days ago I received this letter in the mail.
I'll admit, at first I didn't think about it much. I just saw the base pay and realized how high it was. That's $57.2K a year if you work full-time! That's more than what most teachers make! Yes, I was gullible enough to believe that. I really though it was that per hour. And even though the paper was vague, I only did basic, 5-minute research on VectorMarketing on glassdoor.
I decided to apply and it was very simple. Just put in your basic contact information and bam. Wait for an interview! I'm laughing right now thinking about how stupid I was to believe that this was legitimate. No company would pay this much and have such a basic information.
Less than 10 minutes later, I immediately got a text setting up for an interview. Once again, no serious company does that. Even Fortunte 500 companies take like for-fucking ever to respond.
This was 8 PM, by the way. I don't think any company responds this late.
As you can see, they tried to be very vague. They never mentioned that they sell knives through appointments. At first glance, I thought this was simply you calling people on the phone asking questions, like customer service. So, it didn't sound bad. Also, if you look back on the letter, they didn't even have VectorMarketing as the title of the letter, or even their purpose! It was just "Orange County Headquarters" making me think that it's from the office of the Orange County government. In that letter they just mention "customer service" which made me think of a regular, online customer service job, like if you call Best Buy if you have any issues with your product. Also, the fact that they signed off as the Orange County Management Team instead of Vector is even more suspicious.
Eventually I signed up for the interview at 11:10 AM PDT, Sunday, which was today! I didn't take any photos of the interview as I thought it was legitimate. I even combed my hair and wore a collar shirt to look professional.
It was a group interview. There were 20 of us. There was this one guy who claimed he was from UCI, and how he was a division manager. We spent 50 minutes learning about how the company works, from its history to what our job is. It's like how y'all claim Vector is. They have you participate in appointments, you sell really good knives, and the pay is amazing! They mostly talked about how great the company is, how great the pay is, and how you can use that marketing experience to become crazy good in your future lifetime career. Honestly, there was sooo much promoting how popular the company is and the pay. I gotta say, I was intriguied. They mentioned how VectorMarketing is ranked highly for diversity, opportunities for college students, pay, etc. They talked about how training works, and they did mention it's unpaid. Sure. It was odd, but I still wanted to be a part of the company.
They said that within 4 hours (12 PM - 4 PM), we will get a call for a phone interview. This is the actual one-on-one interview where the interviewer decides if we get the job or not. I got my call at 1:44 PM. Funny enough, the phone number that called me is traced to the San Francisco Bay Area. If the interviewer works and lives in Orange County, why are they from SF?
Anyways, the phone interview was 10 minutes long. The guy who interviewed me was the 'district manager' who hosted the group interview. The questions were odd. He mostly talked about what I love most about the company and how excited I am to work for Vector. Very manipulative. Most businesses interview you about your skills, strengths, weaknesses, and daily life. This was more on what I love about Vector. He seemed to ignore most of my previous job experiences. Tbf, he did ask how I overcome challenges, but that was the only question related to me and my expertise.
Anyways, he offered me the job on the spot. HOWEVER, this was when things got interesting. My older sister was texting me about how shady Vector is WHILE I was on the interview, so I decided to actually look up the fucking company like a sane person. I went to Wikipedia and saw all the accusations that VectorMarketing has. Why didn't I do this earlier?!
Manipulating college students. Selling knives. Witholding information. Countless lawsuits for breaking labor laws.
I decided to question the interviewer on this. He seemed to be caught off-guard when I interrogated him on Vector's shady practices. He definitely knew that Vector is manipulative. He sai that it should be fine because every corporation has lawsuits. When I went further explaning that the lawsuits are for breaking labor laws, that is when he said that if I was too hesitant to IMMEDIATELY make a decision, then the job is not for me. Not because I don't have the right skills (mind you, he said I did), but because I was hesistant to accept the job offer. He wanted an immediate response. Like, he was so fucking adamant. He rescinded the offer, even after I said if I could get 24 hours to make my decision. That was the end of the line for me and Vector. Would have never happend if I read the Wikipedia article, huh?
There's lots of Youtube videos of teens sharing their negative experiences with Vector. Honestly, I wish I said yes so I could be in the room where it happens. I wanted to see the actual training to see how truly manipulative they are. I also heard that a district manager sued Vector for being an independent contractor despite their high-rank. I wouldn't be surprised if a 'division manager' is a guy who gets paid for how many people he hires, like a regular MLM. Maybe that is why the interviewer was so adamant on me saying yes, because he was gonna get paid for it. I wonder what other information they were witholding. I heard that appointments take an hour, so you basically get paid per hour. However, they didn't say how easy it would be to make an appointment, or if you were on your own like a regular MLM. They said even if the customer says no, you still get paid, but maybe there are pre-reqs like having minimum requirements to be considered an appointment. And what if the 'division manager' was reading a script?
I guess I didn't first consider it an MLM because of how vague they were at the beginning, and because I orginally considered MLMs to be about selling perfume using middle-aged white women. Well, that was 1.5 hours of my life I'm not getting back. Oh well! Even being a STEM major taking a research class doesn't stop me from being gullible lol.
