next time you’re about to shout “cultural appropriation” at any basic thing, please remember your culture may not have been the only one to come up with… basic things fulfilling in the basic needs of human beings.
this is a teepee in Finland, deal with it.

Lovely was the maid of Pohja,Famed on land, on water peerless,On the arch of air high-seated,Brightly shining on the rainbow,Clad in robes of dazzling lustre,Clad in rainment white and shining.
There she wove a golden fabric,Interwoven all with silver,And her shuttle was all golden,And her comb was all of silver.
From her hand flew swift the shuttle,In her hands the reel was turning,And the copper shafts they clattered,And the silver comb resounded,As the maiden wove the fabric,And with silver interwove it.
Väinämöinen, old and steadfast,Thundered on upon his journey,From the gloomy land of Pohja,Sariola for ever misty,Short the distance he had traveled,When he heard the shuttle whizzing,High above his head he heard it.
Thereupon his head he lifted,And he gazed aloft to heaven,And beheld a glorious rainbow;On the arch the maiden seated,As she wove a golden fabric,And the silver comb resounded.
Väinämöinen, old and steadfast,Stayed his horse upon the instant,And he raised his voice, and speaking,In such words as these addressed her:“Come into my sledge, O maiden,In the sledge beside me seat thee.”

Lovely was the maid of Pohja,
Famed on land, on water peerless,
On the arch of air high-seated,
Brightly shining on the rainbow,
Clad in robes of dazzling lustre,
Clad in rainment white and shining.

There she wove a golden fabric,
Interwoven all with silver,
And her shuttle was all golden,
And her comb was all of silver.

From her hand flew swift the shuttle,
In her hands the reel was turning,
And the copper shafts they clattered,
And the silver comb resounded,
As the maiden wove the fabric,
And with silver interwove it.

Väinämöinen, old and steadfast,
Thundered on upon his journey,
From the gloomy land of Pohja,
Sariola for ever misty,
Short the distance he had traveled,
When he heard the shuttle whizzing,
High above his head he heard it.

Thereupon his head he lifted,
And he gazed aloft to heaven,
And beheld a glorious rainbow;
On the arch the maiden seated,
As she wove a golden fabric,
And the silver comb resounded.

Väinämöinen, old and steadfast,
Stayed his horse upon the instant,
And he raised his voice, and speaking,
In such words as these addressed her:
“Come into my sledge, O maiden,
In the sledge beside me seat thee.”

This blog is about the many innovations, inventions, creations and discoveries made by white people throughout history.

This isn't about hate, violence or racial supremacy. I love my people and I hope you love yours.

That said, if you say moronic things that can be proved wrong in 3 minutes on bing, don't expect to be handled with kid gloves.

NOTE: I'm not updating this blog very much at the moment. I have enough posts queued up to keep it running for the next couple of years, but I don't log in or check it regularly. Feel free to browse the archives though if you want answers to some questions.
