Happy #IndigenousPeoplesDay and a full throated condemnation of #ColumbusDay, the worst holiday in the United States and a celebration of apocalypticism, genocide, slavery, torture, embezzlement, and unremitting brutality, all in the name of Spanish Catholicism and bad math.
On the most basic level, #ChristopherColumbus was a bad person with bad ideas who engaged in bad actions on both a micro and macro scale, and celebrating him as a human being is wrong. Celebrating his achievements? ALSO WRONG.
#ColumbusDay is somehow taught to kids in the US as a celebration of an individual who thought the world was round when everyone else thought it was flat--anyone else remember that crap?--which is complete garbage. No one thought the world was flat. No one.

FYI: So, hearing from Lake Andes, SD (my dad's hometown) on the Yankton Sioux rez that things are really bad with the flooding. E coli infections & the city won't release to the tribe the status on the water and may sue the Yankton Sioux Tribe over digging a ditch. #ClimateStrike
Hearing (but not confirmed) people also are being ordered to evacuate as houses are not safe. Red Cross won't help because they need a directive from FEMA. I'm seeking a press release from the Yankton Sioux Tribe.

#MidwestFlooding #ClimateStrike #ClimateChange #Indigenous
Also, hearing the graves at St. Phillips, the old White Swan Church are threatened. My grandmother and many of my relatives (including Ella Deloria) are buried there.

This is really starting to piss me off. #Trudeau literally created the most diverse cabinet in the history of #Canada, giving #POC the highest jobs in the country. He’s welcomed #Syrian refugees, he’s increased funding to #Indigenous people, he’s marched with #LGBTQ in #Pride...
...Parades. He’s supported #women’s rights, stood with #feminists & created the most gender balanced cabinet in the history of this country. His record on #humanrights, #multiculturalism & #diversity speaks a feck of a lot louder than some 20 year old photos. Wake up #canada!...
This is not #racism it is character assassination plain & simple. Don’t believe me? Look at Scheer’s record on #multiculturalism, #diversity & #inclusion. Look at the #whitenationalists, #bigots & #racists running in his campaign & ask yourself why they got a pass & JT doesn’t...

@ThompskeKathryn 1/ No, they don't depend on the forest. It might come as a surprise to most, but the rain forest is, (a) an ecosystemic mosaic; (b) it is highly dynamic. The #Indigenous folks are the only ones who can
- protect
- manage
- understand
the rain forest...
@ThompskeKathryn 2/ which is why we, scientists, listen to them first. They have been there for over 10 thousand years. During this time, according to the most brilliant zoologist to describe the Amazon, P. Vanzolini and geomorphologist Aziz Ab'Saber
@ThompskeKathryn 3/ The area we call "Amazonia" has had forested "islands" expanding and shrinking, savannah-like areas, desert areas, swamp areas and others doing the same. That, happening along many thousands of years

The ideologies espoused by liberal "activism" infect resistance like a cancer. It's exactly why foundations incubate & fund them. Such is the case of 350 of which Naomi Klein serves as a director.
Klein writes "We clearly should have rented a stadium for our event with the amazing Greta Thunberg and other youth organizers including Xiye Bastida Xiuhtezcatl Martinez +more"

But they could have just rented out the display window at Barneys.
"Activism" becomes completely commodified. So grotesque - yet normalized. Barneys New York, The Window: "Meet Indigenous Climate Change Activist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez"

We are subjected to the branding "United Behind the Science" with a heavy emphasis from the face of the campaign (exploited Thunberg) to "listen to the science". Unite Behind the Science is not meant to protect Earth. It is meant to unleash a new era of privatization & plunder.

1) Unbelievable. This corrupt thing doubles down on ignorance and violence against our #Indigenous peoples, picks petty fights and his base is as inflamed as ever.

huffpost.com/entry/brazil-j…
2) He is making absolutely sure that the next elections will be so violently polarized that they may not happen. Remember: we are Latin America. We have a history of Coups and RW dictatorships.
3) Our left is intellectually much better prepared than the American Left and can easily get radicalized. There is no way we will ever forgive Bolsonaro voters - ever, every. It's a consensus among us.

#AmazoniaIsNotForSale

Observe the map below: it represents the area affected by the current fires in Amazonia.
#AmazoniaIsNotForSale

2/ Now observe the map below. These are the 33 Mexicos in the mind of imbecile racist Americans. Observe the countries and compare with the map above, with the fire image:
#AmazoniaIsNotForSale

3/ Observe now the distribution of #indigenous reserves in Amazonia, which, BTW, should cover ALL OF AMAZONIA: the land was stolen from them. It still belongs to a country called #Brazil. There are fascist in power - we're going to kick them out.

There is no "ngo" burning the #AmazonRainforest these are Cattle Ranchers, most of whom voted for #Bolsonaro. They're destroying the #Enviroment to steal #Indigenous land for themselves #NativeTwitter!#IndigenousRights #NativeLivesMatter

1/ Bolsonaro blames environmentalist non-profits: oh, how predictable. Do you see the pattern? The trump mob and the bolsonaro mob share the same features: conspiracy theories, blaming the victims or the opponents and CRIME.

2/ Brazil is losing the greatest rainforest in the world and this is on bolsonaro's criminal mob: they have strategically refused to take action when there was still time.

3/ The Brazilian "ruralist" caucus represents a social and economic segment unknown to many Americans: they are billionaire land-owners who have traditionally practiced murder, slavery, torture, and decimation of #indigenous peoples.

Friends, @ewarren laid out a comprehensive plan to PARTNER with Native communities. Her plan is revolutionary because it shows she (or her people) understands the depth of the relationship between the & Native governments better than any other presidential candidate maybe ever.
@ewarren No @ewarren plan is not perfect, because it's probably impossible to have "perfect" at this juncture of colonial history. That said, it is evidence she is fundamentally rethinking the relationship between Native nations & the US to a partnership instead of throwing some bones.
@ewarren Specifically, @ewarren proposed a CABINET LEVEL WHITE HOUSE POSITION for Native affairs. That is huge. It is appropriate. It is important to note that she is continuing the work of President Obama to have regular contact with Native nations instead of only special ocassions.

1/ As with about 80% of his actions, I thought it was just another surreal statement made to enrage reasonable and democracy-supporting segments of society. It was not.

2/ I thought the chief reason was to insult #Indigenous people by quite literally repeating the actions of past centuries' colonial powers. Greenland is #Indigenous territory. The actual name is Kalaallit Nunaat.

ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
3/ Greenland is an autonomous country of the Kingdom of Denmark. It has been invaded by the Norse and Dane for over 1000 years. Still, it is predominantly Innuit.

1/ Hi everyone! Today we’re going to take a bit of time to talk more about protocols, permissions and some Indigenous-led projects and resources relevant to the #GLAM sphere. And we’re going to start talking about #metadata!
2/ As we’ve mentioned, in many Indigenous knowledge systems, a person’s right to access certain information (especially traditional knowledge and customs) may be bound by specific, contextual permissions. #OpenGLAM
3/ Here’s an example relevant to the G in #GLAM: the proceedings from @_FPCC's Cultural Protocols & the Arts Forum in 2014. As the late Dr. Greg Younging said, “Protocols provide guidelines for behaviour.”

1/25 A #THREAD for @MarkBourrie to help him understand:

- The basic functions of social media

- His own misogynist slander

- The racist issue regarding promotion of White revisionist history against #Indigenous Peoples

- The folly of Small Man Syndrome & knee-jerk assumptions
2/25 I assure @MarkBourrie that I haven't deleted anything

If you visit my "tweets & replies" you'll see everything I posted, without a shred of regret or wish to conceal, rescind, or amend any part of my sentiments toward you

Con't...
3/25 RE Bourrie

Your false allegation about 'heavily editing & removing material' stems from your own ineptitude at social media

At the #FNMIAQ tonight, I asked folks what they would like future admin #LUpqp1 to consider in their roles to support #Indigenous ed. So many fantastic ideas. Iris was duly impressed. I will collate in this thread
1. Education. Take time to educate yourself, and support staff learning. Attend workshops. Dedicate time @ staff meetings, PD to learning #Indigenous #truths & how to incorporate in classes #LUpqp1
2. Take this learning about #Indigenous ed seriously. Don't treat it like it is just another "thing" we have to do. This can happen if incorporated into SIPSA, Annual Learning Plans, Book Clubs #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ

Excerpts (with screenshots) from “Sick heart of a generation” by A/Proff @TracyWesterman proud Njamal woman from the Pilbara region of WA and active, 20+ years, clinical psychologist (Masters + PhD). Tracy was named WA’s Oz of the Year last year. #auspol
Excerpts:

“Staggeringly, funded programs are not required to demonstrate evidence of impact, nor are they required to demonstrate a measurable reduction in suicide and mental health risk factors.” #auspol #ausvotes19 #ausvotes
“So, given this, can governments truly claim they are funding suicide prevention? You cannot claim prevention if you arenʼt measuring risk. Itʼs that simple.” #auspol #ausvotes #ausvotes19

Today, Freda Huson of the #Unistoten is in New York at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, to address the ongoing human rights violations against the Wet’suwet’en people.

This thread is her statement in full. Visit our FB page for the video. #wetsuwetenstrong
"Thank you for the opportunity to speak.

I am Freda Huson of Unist’ot’en –Wet’suwet’en People of Canada.

I am here to express concerns with Human Rights Violations happening to my people. Since time immemorial, my people have lived in a balanced relationship with our lands.
We depend on the land to survive, and we are responsible for protecting it. Since Canada began settling on our territories, we have been forced onto reservations and away from our traditional land base.

I want to share 2 stories. Both of these women have recently been potentially diagnosed with cancer.

For now, I'll call them "woman on the left" and "woman on the right".

I want to share the differences in health care.

Please finish the thread to see how I know them.
Woman on the left is Dutch. She is a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Woman on the right is Indigenous. She is also a wife (widow), mother, and grandmother.
Woman on the left recently got a call saying she needs to go for further testing after results came back from a test she took a week ago.

Woman on the right has been waiting for further testing for months. Her scheduled MRI was just cancelled because the machine broke down.
