FC: LLi | LIFE AS AN INDIAN
1: Long ago about 200 years A,D. I was an Indian in India . My name was Makittosimew Litonya which is Marquavia . My parents were Mousi Ehawee and Yanisim Kosumi . We were given our names from our characteristics . I am about to tell you about my life as an Indian .
4: Life As An Indian ... India which is a very grassy , green , and clean environment .India was a very nice place to live. At the same time living in India was hard.
5: Everyone wonders about Indians. We've always struggled to survive . Surviving here is very hard compared to others life . Not exactly do I know what age you start working but I figured it would be eleven or lower. Working isn't easy.
6: I am only twelve and I'm like a grown woman . It's ok because , in order to get through life you will have to work hard. It's a good thing I've already started .
7: How did we get our food? We got our food from hunting and fishing. We would always go hunting at night for bears and deers to eat. After we finished the hunting we carried it as a family home to eat . It wasn't good but that's all we had to eat .
8: Why did we only eat fish, deer, and bears? Those were the only three things we really had to eat. If we didn't eat i guess we would just starve. I couldn't survive without eating so i had to eat . If you didn't eat i guess you'll eat some leaves!
9: Transportation... What are our transportation? Our transportation was riding horses , rode boats , and walked . We would ride horses everywhere all through the town . No matter how cold or hot it was it would get us there . After that we had road boats . Boats would sometimes help .
10: Dressing was like an old woman . We wore sioux dresses , bunnet blea clow necklace . We were young and looked about fifty. All skin had to be covered for various reasons . I'm glad all skin were covered because I didn't feel violated .
11: What language did we speak? We spoke native language and native tongue . It was easier if we learned at an early age because we would know most things when we got older . You would say hello like this G'day mate .
