In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them.
For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done.
The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.
But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes.
The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help.
They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.”
NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”
WHY ISN’T THIS A THING IN ALL CULTURES
some day I’m going to create a bingo card for these kinds of posts.
- vague mention of “Africa” and “African tribe” with no actual names of tribes, countries, or languages, because Africa is a country and everyone there is exactly the same obv: check.
- picture of smiling/emotional black people taken completely out of context: check.
- made-up “African” words with deep meanings: check.
- "noble savage" grossness out the wazoo: check.

Initial googling says that Shikoba means “feather” in Choctaw, which would mean OP isn’t even on the right damn continent.
(When I look at Choctaw-English dictionaries, though, shikoba doesn’t show up at all; the word for feather seems to be “híshi.” “Shikobli” is a verb meaning “to put on a plume” so maybe there’s some conjugation or gerund going on here? I’d welcome any corrections from actual Choctaw speakers.)
Nabajyoti Saikia is someone’s name. OP just straight-up stole some poor Indian cement chemist’s name for their colonialist hippie bullshit.
Look at this dude. He didn’t spend years of his life writing a goddamn textbook on waste management strategies so that you could use his name to prop up this crock of shit. He’s disappointed in you. Do better.
This is some disgusting orientalistic bullshit, my god.
This motherfucker is pretty clever ^^^
i don’t know if its because i haven’t been paying enough attention on tumblr but i haven’t seen anything about this on here yet. just a heads up if you didn’t know about this.
do not ask for evidence or proof and dismiss this. that leads to victim blaming and rape apologists.
sexual harassment is a serious thing to accuse someone of
it REQUIRES evidence because then if its not true, you just ruined someone’s entire fucking life based on the sole fact that “that’s blaming the victim” or some shit like that.
the police can’t just say “oh, this happened because you said it did”. because that can lead to people being falsely accused
god fucking damn
do you really think several well established artists and names in the animation industry would make this shit up? seriously?
they’re still normal people? being a well established artist has nothing to do wtih it? what the fuck
i’m not saying they made it up. what i am saying is no one should take this to heart until some solid proof comes along
YOU CANT PROVE SOMEONE ASSAULTED YOU OR RAPED YOU, YOU ARE COMING OFF AS A GIGANTIC RAPE APOLOGIST
okay so if you got sexually assaulted and it was traumatizing and you told someone and you have people demanding proof and dismissing your claims and siding with the accused? bam, rape apologists, victim blaming. I suggest you stop trying to defend this matter
So true. It’s just like the theft apologists who demand proof when blacks steal things from white peoples.
