dear followers, many of you know me for my science & technology-related work. it's common knowledge how the church has worked with the state to colonize & exploit Indigenous ppl. S&T's role in colonization is lesser recognized. I have focused on genomics.…
while continuing to build #IndigenousSTS programs @UANativeStudies including a summer genome training program for Indigenous ppl, i've recently begun researching the suppression of Indigenous sexualities by settler states and their institutions.
@UANativeStudies genomics & sexualities may seem unrelated, but settler thought is preoccupied with purity & contamination in their thinking of race, sex & nature. genomics prefers to bleed "unadmixed" Natives. while Indigenous women are hypersexualized. In both cases we're exploitable resources.
