The "Respect Your Elders" Classic T Original is an honorary tribute to all our Native American brothers and sisters that were slaughtered, pillaged and raped by the colonizers of this land. This is also a tribute to all the Native Americans who for years have endured the pain that still walk this earth, for they have not vanished like many so popularly believe. This is an acknowledgement of the community tragedies and lack of resources that many of the reservations have to still deal with today within Adults and children from high suicide rates, drug addiction, alcoholism, and even little to no running water. This is a stance of solidarity to let our brothers and sisters know that we stand with them against the oppressors views and demeanor. That we too are disgusted with the use of mascots for sports teams that is just in bad, disrespectful taste, that we too shun the ridiculous costumes worn by none Natives making a mockery of the culture.
This design also has a second deeper meaning behind it. Respect Your elders doesn't just mean to respect the ones before you but it also means to Respect HISTORY. Know your history. To know your history is to Know yourSELF. To know yourSELF is to wake up and love yourSELF and your people. Once you awaken from the illusions that were fed to us throughout history we can start healing our people and the world.
