This is a #Thread about one of the many trolls who is targeting #Native and #Indigenous @Twitter accounts.

The account #@Blondi65003273 is interacting with #NativeAmericans by #JustAskingQuestions

Nothing obviously provocative.

#NativeTwitter
One of Blondi’s followers is another account that claims to be #Native #Ojibwe
However, one of her first posts demonstrate her to be not your average concerned Wisconsin #Native from the North Woods. She posts a picture of a dismembered body that is supposed to convince voters that we need a stronger immigration policy to deter crime.

Dear twitter,

After a loooong 2wks of conferencing at #SfAA2019 & #AAPA2019, & after a couple of speedbumps, I'm finally back home in Oregon & I have time to do something I've been trying to do since #AmAnth2018--

My ~Twitter Grant Proposal~! (Cue echo effect)

#DeStressMyDiss
I came up w/the idea of proposing my research to twitter last fall while attempting force my proposal to fit the requirements of a theory-heavy grant opportunity.

I often have to re-write what I *really* mean to account for the views/feels of my "peers" who "peer-review" my app.
But the thing is, they aren't my "peers," bc #Indigenous academics like me haven't been welcome in #Bioanth long enough for funding agencies to actually have enough of my peers available to peer-review.

So my work must be squished & squeezed to get Western scientists to like it.

As with #foreignaffairs policy that the US employs in the #MiddleEast,
#Trump domestic policy is to employ #Native Leaders who can advise him about accessing #Native land under the guise of cutting Commerce Dept regulations which would open up #Reservations to #BigOil Industry.
#Trump has set up a #NativeAmerican Affairs Coalition w/ 27 tribal members to advise him about the needs of Indian Country. The issue that concerns #Trump & the #native group the most is the desire to access the natural energy reserves on #Reservations.

#Native #Reservations consist of 2% of US Territory but could possibly hold 20% of the country’s “oil and gas reserves.” (This makes wind and solar much more attractive considering you wouldn’t have to steal #native land all over again.)

Happy Halloween! Ready for another terrifying stream of Wonder Womans, Moanas, and babies dressed like pumpkins?

No matter who comes to your door for tricks and treats, we see much scarier things every day in our reporting:
The #EPA is now in the hands of a lobbyist for the coal industry. We’re sure that’s going to go super-duper well for the environment:
