Anonymous asked: I try to say the traditional tribal names as much as I can. But where does the name <Sioux> come from?

lastrealindians:

It’s derived from the French word for ‘enemy.’ Its the opposite of who we are. Our real name is Oceti Sakowin, Seven Council Fires. Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota belong to this group and those words all mean ‘friend.’ Unfortunately the word Sioux is pretty well engrained in western society and sometimes we’re still forced to use it so people will know what we’re talking about, i.e. they call us The Great Sioux Nation.

i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.

that is all i ask.

im soexcited about this movie but i keep seeing this post and want to add that everyone should also keep in mind that dia de los muertos is specifically MEXICAN. la muerte (santa muerte) and a lot of what is being depicted is seen primarily in MEXICAN culture and should not be lumped together in its entirety as a “hispanic” thing.
