A RUSSIAN LJ community concerning the past genocide of Native Americans?  (Note: Russian is in Russian).

I guess this is not so strange as it may seem. For one thing, there are still people in Russia who will do all they can to smear the USA, as I have said before, especially if it involves the truth. Maybe these people are all related to Putin in some way. Also, there is similarity between some Siberians, (and Mongolians), with many Native Americans.

Here's a film I recommend that ALL of you should see! - The Story of the Weeping Camel.  I am mentioning this here because, while I watched this beautiful movie, I did see some of those similarities between Mongolians and Native Americans.

(As you might know, I have been trying to study those connections, migrations, etc., and how they might relate to the emergence of the dog. The main conclusion is this: Most things happened a LOT earlier than we thought. This is because science is always conservative in comparison to the truth. This is why science can so often be the ultimate fake news, as an extension of our own arrogance. You wouldn't think, would you? I just can't wait to see what happens when science brings us a world ruled by AI robots).

Back to the post... So, let me tell you about this movie, first. At first, I thought it was a documentary. But it was getting shots way too contrived or intimate for a documentary. And there was not a single person inadvertently looking at the camera, giggling, or such. Then, I started thinking that it was a movie movie. But it was WAY too real for that! So, this is what they call a, "docudrama," but I am telling you, it is more than that, somehow.

In a distant Mongolian village, a camel gives birth to a colt, (I think they called it). Apparently because of the highly difficult birthing process, the mother rejected the child. It was so sad to see the baby crying, on and on, for milk and for its mother. No matter what the 'shepherds' did, they could not get the mother to accept the baby. It was heart-wrenching.

First, they brought in some Buddhist lamas, (not llamas), to do some religious tricks, which didn't work. Then the brought in a "violin" player to do an ancient Mongolian ritual. Really one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I will leave it to you to find out the rest. (But I will let you know, the weeping camel is NOT the baby).

The Mongolian yurts, the manners, the love of nature, the wonder, the isolation, the religious rituals - these things all reminded me of Native Americans who, of course, largely eminated from that area of the world. It is SO interesting to me how these cultures blend into Hinduism and Buddhism, which are but paintings over more ancient, shared ways.

Inside the amazing yurts were worlds of wonderful, bright colours, like you might see in old Buddhist paintings - or - in Native American dressings, such: - Well, I had a pic of really colourful Indian garb somewhere, but I cannot find it. So, here's something almost as good:

(Sacred Plant Healing: Shamanic Medicine & the New Science - originally from: "New Dawn").

How yurts are like teepees and wikiups:

Winnebago / Ho-Chunk - "People of the Sea"

It is also fascinating how Algonquin dwellings resemble dwellings from North Atlantic isles. There's a post related to this coming up, yay. OK - I guess this post is done. I know of at least two Native American friends on my list, who are active. If you are another, let me know! Here is my tag for Native Americans. (And THIS and THIS).
