‘Mapping Indigenous LA’

Ever notice iconic streets in #LA that end in ‘nga’ like #Topanga #Tujunga #Cahuenga ?

Does ‘nga’ mean ‘place?’

What’s its tribal origin? @trunorthr @stellar_truth

@UCLA Mishuana Goeman called it ‘indigenous graffiti’ at @USC

From the Mountains to the Sea
Long before the development of Los Angeles, with its freeways and suburbs, Southern California was known for its grasslands, estuaries and oak-covered foothills. 1/11 Image
The original people of Los Angeles, the Tongva, defined their world as Tovaangar. It extended from Palos Verdes to San Bernardino, from Saddleback Mountain to the San Fernando Valley. 2/11 Image

When r we going to stop calling it by its name, RACIAL VIOLENCE?! When our Indigenous & Black children are attacked for the color of their skin, certain features, etc. it is not bullying!!! IT IS RACIAL VIOLENCE! WHITE (LATINX) SUPREMACY INHERENTLY TIED TO SETTLER COLONIALISM!!!
This sh*t is so triggering! It is an emotional rollercoaster! I just hope that for those children who like myself tried to hurt ourselves and internalized self-hate for how we look can overcome all this! #IndigenousAlways #Brownisbeautiful #Blackisbeautiful #BlackandBrown #LA

As a Zapotec Professor, born and raised in Koreatown, I am appalled to hear LA City Council members blatant racial attacks. Many of us Indigenous Oaxacans, however, are not surprised to hear this racial violence from non-Indigenous Latinx and Mexicans! It happens EVERYDAY!
I began my research on Indigenous Oaxacan experiences in the US because of my family's and my pueblos (not "villages") transnational autonomous practices across #LosAngeles & #Oaxaca. I concentrate on women and children precisely because of the racial violence we have
endured by Latinx & non-Indigenous mestizo Mexicans, yet that remains invisible by most. Being called "Pinche India fea!," "India Maria Baja del cerro"... and the number of spitts from my Latinx peers growing up attending #LAUSD from elementary to h.s.

Thread per chi fosse interessato:
I problemi di queste settimane che costituiscono un filo diretto con la stagione precedente, come se il campionato 2021-22 non si fosse mai interrotto hanno
radici molto profonde e partono da anni addietro quando ancora la Juve vinceva campionati e raggiungeva la finale in #UCL
Nascono quando ancora Marotta occupava un ruolo rilevante nella società torinese, proviamo quindi ad elencarli qui:
- il centrocampo 2015 gradualmente
dissolto è mai adeguatamente ricostruito: #Pjanic, #Khedira, #Matuidi o #Marchisio in prima battuta in sostituzione di -#Pirlo hanno garantito continuità di vittoria ma non di rendimento, non sono mai stati giocatori da possesso (Pjanic escluso) e no l’un hanno mai avuto il ritmo

I'm writing this from a hotel room in Ottawa, the day before the first event in the tour *Chokepoint Capitalism*, the book Rebecca Giblin and I are about to publish with @BeaconPress; this tour is a little different from the usual so I thought I'd explain how it'll work. 1/ A photo of me giving a talk...

$10B to FUND the police! 🚨👮🏻‍♀️

The investment includes $6.5 billion “in State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund investments over the past year.” 💵

That figure includes over $2 billion to aide police / reduce crime, and $1 billion to help reduce domestic violence…

🪡 1/7
This may be one of the few examples where the Biden Admin has actually done something good… or is it? 🤓💡

The move certainly keeps with his intention to “FUND the police,” which was a theme in his #SOTU address this year… but where?

🪡 2/7 Image
Strangely, this move is NOT something seen as a positive by the Left bc, as we know, they are keen to DEFUND the police. 📉⚠️

Conservatives believe this measure is too-little-too-late as crime rates have been SURGING since the beginning of 2021…

#La reacción de Stalin ante la muerte de su hijo Yákov
Como bien sabréis Yákov Dzhugashvili, el hijo de Stalin, fue capturado por los nazis el 16 de 1941 en la Batalla de Smolensk.+
Los nazis ofrecieron a Stalin intercambiar a su hijo por el mariscal alemán Friedrich Paulus, pero Stalin se negó y le dijo lo siguiente a Molotov: “No voy a intercambiar a un mariscal por teniente. Él sabrá que hacer es un soldado del Ejército Rojo.”+
Dos años después el mariscal soviético Georgi Zhukov informó a Stalin del fallecimiento de su hijo en el campo de concentración nazi de Sachsenhausen. Molotov y Kalinin que se encontraban en ese momento con Stalin narraron posteriormente que Stalin se tambaleó y+
