The epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women on the North American continent is as old as colonization itself, & solution-based actions taking place to address it are long overdue & absolutely welcome. #MMIW #MMIWG #MMIP
Studies have shown that the epidemic of missing & murdered Indigenous women is directly linked to genocidal conquest, the subjugation & dehumanization of Indigenous peoples & climate change through exploitative extractive industries.

Mother Earth was the first Indigenous woman.
4 out of 5 Native women experience violence over the course of their lives.

More than half have experienced sexual violence.

I am one of these women.

We also face a murder rate 10X the national average. #MMIW #MMIWG #MMIWG2S

Had to break out the bird account to say @Meta and @facebookapp keep tagging my posts about the Comanche Language, a critically endangered language, as sexual solicitation. Your review team “works in many languages”, right. Not mine. #comanche #endangeredlanguage #IndigenousMe
We, like many other Indigenous languages in the world, have been impacted by colonialism & we are fighting with every breath we take to recreate our speaking communities and cultural activities, in some cases with fewer than 10 birth speakers and sometimes, no speakers left.
And for our posts to be tagged and flagged by an algorithm that thinks because it can’t understand our languages that we are soliciting sex when we are sharing resources for our people to use to learn and get them engaged with our languages is a slap in the face @finkd
