hi my name is Ruben but my indian name is 'Young Bear' as given to me by an Lakota elder that i know and is close friends with. i was told as a kid that i'm mixed Cherokee and other various of tribes but i was then too young to fully understand how deep and rich my heritage and bloodline truely was untill i grew older and stated doing research on pow wows and the culture itself. in 2009 age 18 (yea i'm a young cub lol) i became more spiritually connected to my heritage after realizing how much i shoud be proud of the bloodline i have. i been raised by my grandmother who is half cherokee,half black with some seminole and she was married to my grandfather who was cree and my grandmother always kept things to our traditional ways. like when i was 16 yrs old in '07 when i onced had long hair,my graandmother would always braid my hair either in seminole style braiding or traditional cherokee style (and she wouldn't let me wear my hair freely/unbraided caause i looked so much like my mother she said i looked like a girl if i didn't braid my hair LOL) but i wished i knew how great my heritage was when i was younger but i guess things happen at the time it suposed to happen or meant to happen so i guess it wasn't meant for me to rep my pride for my bloodline and heritage untill now.
and the music i love listening to are Metal/Rock,Punk-Rock,pop rock,Native American Hip-Hop/Rap,mainstream rap/hiphop,Traditional Native music (flute and pow wow music),Pop,Techno/Electronic/Dance,and a tiny bit of New Age
