Looking for First Nations love: Indigenous dating life ‘complex’ – Aboriginal – CBC

Looking for First Nations love: Indigenous dating life ‘complex’ – Aboriginal – CBC

I find a lot of this heart-rending. Dating for Native Americans/First Nations (Canada) can lead to much thought for future generations – it’s more than just falling in love. It’s thought to bring more indigenous ‘blood’ back to your bloodline. Back in the day, many tribes relied on neighboring tribes for spouses (if you could call them that), and geographically near peoples would be your dating and marriage pool. Is the world more open today because we have the internet in which to find potential spouses?

I think a lot of people find long-distance relationships by going to Pow Wows and meeting people there. What if you’re like me, and work most weekends and can’t go to Pow Wows? I’m a Native woman who’s technically “too old” to have kiddos, but I’d love to find a Native man…however the dating sites are few and far between. I think many Native people are shy and don’t want their business and photos on the internet, and they don’t want to be contacted by peoples of other races that are fascinated with them – it leads to stalkers. Native American women are stalked more than any other race in America: it’s a dangerous world out there.

If I knew how to screen members by ID, I’d create my own Native dating website for people like me…*sigh*
