Reading Time: 4 minutes Our stories are about the culture we had before the white man came to disrupt it. Our story is the cultural clash between ours and theirs. Our story is about the God we worshiped before we were told to close our eyes and speak in tongues while they stole our land, raped our mothers and destroyed the future of our generation.
