A Native American, Family Oriented Network
Native American Peoples is a social network
Our people don't come in parts. Either you are Indian, or you are not.
We really need to take a look at how Indian People are talking about Indian People. We say there are Rez Indians, Traditional Indians, Urban Indians and Breeds. This type of thinking will keep us separated. An Indian is an Indian, a brother is a brother, a sister is a sister. We are all related. The most important thing that determines who we are is on our insides, not our outsides. If we are Indian inside, that's all that matters. Being Indian means to think right, to be spiritual and to pray. Feathers and beads don't make us Indian. Being Indian means to have a good heart and a good mind. Today, let us respect ourselves and our people. Today, let us realize Indians are Indians.
Going back to the old ways doesn't mean giving up electricity, homes and cars. It means living by the same principles, laws and values that our ancestors lived by. This will allow us to live successfully in today's world. The spirituality our ancestors lived is the same spirituality we need in these modern times. There are too many influences from TV, radio, newspapers, magazines and negative role models that are guiding our lives in a bad way. Our stability is in the laws, principles and values that our ancestors were given and that our Elders teach us.

We are supporting both a pop-out chat and a full-page chat.
If you want to give your chat some extra real estate but be able to dismiss it when you’re not using it. The pop-out chat works for both private chats and the network chat.
Your posts are grouped together and will appear under the same timestamp, name and avatar. You’ll see those timestamps after 1 minute of inactivity. This will probably be a real confusion-buster if you’ve left your computer for an hour or more and have come back to conversation(s).
When you want to privately chat with someone, you can simply click on their member name (either in the member list or in network chat), and a new private chat window will open up.
If you’ve had prior conversations with that person (in the same browser), they’ll show up; you can continue where you left off.
If you’re the recipient of a private chat, a new pane will open up on the left when someone starts a private chat with you.
At any point in time, you can pop out a private chat window and even close it out (x) if you wish. The history of the chat will stick around, so don’t feel hesitant about closing out private chats.
If you’re in a private chat and click on a member’s name, you’ll open up their profile page, which can be handy if you need to, for example, go further into a conversation and start a private email message.
The number of chat windows you have open will depend on the size of your browser window. If you have a 50-inch browser (how awesome would that be?) you can go absolutely insane with the private chats. If not, you might want to use the pop-out version.
Links will be preserved when you paste them in, and they will open in a new browser window, making it easy for everyone to quickly share links.
Want to copy and paste parts of the chat? You can select, copy, and paste chat content.
One other detail that you may like about chat is that you’ll see a small notification badge when in private conversation panes that are minimized. It will display the number of posts you’ve received from that person since you minimized that pane.
Chat will work on an iPad or iPhone (as well as many other phones and devices).
We hope you will enjoy the chat rooms.
Hope to see you in chat!
