Lastrealindians Mission Statement:   “At Lastrealindians.com, we highlight Indigenous artists, writers, musicians, designers, speakers, community organizers, movers, shakers, leaders, success stories, struggles, and current events as viewed through the lens of Indigenous perspective. Our writers are academically credentialed, and some are established authors with published literary works. We seek to offer the world crisp, clean, and incisive takes on relevant, hard hitting subjects that impact Indian country and the global community at large. In addition, LastRealIndians.com offers original material with poignant insight into anything germane to the Indigenous experience. Because Indigenous cultures are vibrant and alive, the meaning of what it is to be Indigenous is constantly evolving. With Indigenous tradition as our foundation, we push the envelope. We create these works, respond to our world, and stand together with one Indigenous voice to ensure that we will not be the last of the real Indians. We are real Indians; we are here to make the world new.”
