This Independence Day, remember the native people who have suffered but preserved and survived for all these years despite our government's best efforts:
Donate to the Navajo Nation Covid-19 relief fund (both money and supplies, like homemade cloth masks!):
Support native owned businesses:
Donate to the Black Hills Bail and Legal Defense Fund:
Don't just decry America, help support and bring about its future
@flowless2 could you CW this? While I agree with the notion of being sent back I’d like to choose when to engage with it. Thanks!

I am Ojibwe more than I am any particular European creed. My grandfather had the language of his people beaten out of him in a Catholic school he was forced to attend, and when he was older, they drafted him to go fight some other people fighting colonialism in Vietnam. At one point in his life he stole a beer truck and redistributed it to his tribe and the event culminated in a standoff with an armed standoff with the police--he had rigged his house to explode. The judge decided to let him off the hook, she thought he needed help more than jail. He continued to live selflessly, his house was open to all who needed a place to crash, so long as they cleaned up after themselves. He eventually died due to a rare cancer related to agent orange exposure. His story is undeniably badass but one of a man driven to the edge time and time again by the oppression of his people, my people, by this country.
I am Ojibwe. Fuck America.
holler if ya need anything.
