Replying to @courtneyjanine888 Part 2. Continued mini-series about the true history of the horse and the Native species of horses that are still around today. To watch the full versions of these video clips, just search the video title at the bottom of each clip in YouTube. VCs: Rocky Mountain PBS, Mindfulness with Horses, & Sacred Way Sanctuary. Article credit: The Shared History of Wild Horses and Indigenous People by Shoshi Parks. Featuring Dr. Yvette Running Horse Collin, Celinda Kaelin, Carlton Gover, & William Taylor. From Dr. Yvette Running Horse Collins' Dissertation, The relationship between the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas and the horse: deconstructing a Eurocentric myth: "Although Western academia admits that the horse originated in the Americas, it claims that the horse became extinct in these continents during the Last Glacial Maximum (between roughly 13,000 and 11,000 years ago). This version of "history" credits Spanish conquistadors and other early European explorers with reintroducing the horse to the Americas and to her Indigenous Peoples. However, many Native Nations state that "they always had the horse" and that they had well established horse cultures long before the arrival of the Spanish. To date, "history" has been written by Western academia to reflect a Eurocentric and colonial paradigm. The traditional knowledge (TK) of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas, and any information that is contrary to the accepted Western academic view, has been generally disregarded, purposefully excluded, or reconfigured to fit the accepted academic paradigm. Although mainstream academia and Western science have not given this Native TK credence to date, this research project shows that there is no reason -- scientific or otherwise -- that this traditional Native claim should not be considered true. The results of this thesis conclude that the Indigenous horse of the Americas survived the "Ice Age" and the original Peoples of these continents had a relationship with them from Pleistocene times to the time of "First-Contact." #Indigenous #history #nativetiktok #nativeamerican #native #archaeology #horse #horses #greenscreenvideo
