Progressives need to have facts to spread the truth and fight against the misinformation propaganda. Huge Thanks to:

Fakes undermining democracy, peace, and progressives must be fully exposed!

@brettachapman @MrHWM @Terrilltf I'll "call it" land of the N. Cheyenne nation my ancestors bled for.

As you know, the Fort Laramie Treaty was signed in April 1868, with victorious Native allies burning down all of the forts in the area afterward.
This treaty land was won by fierce fighting & from a position...
@brettachapman @MrHWM @Terrilltf of strength & the dignity by those who sacrificed for it. Red Cloud’s War is where talk of treaty rights stemmed from during the #NoDAPL protest. Lakota people stood their ground protecting not only the water, but with the same blood of their ancestors flowing through their veins
@brettachapman @MrHWM @Terrilltf on land they’d defended 150 years ago.

My Cheyenne tribe has their own powerful & unique history, a history beyond tragic massacres perpetuated against us by the whites we initially sought to make peace with time and time again;

Watching @AOC watch questions of #WellsFargo CEO that people like me have dreamed of being asked from a Congressional hearing. From their culpability in caging children to their role in financing the Dakota Access pipeline.

Clip coming next...
.@RepAOC: "Mr. Sloan, why was the bank involved in the caging of children?"

@AOC to #WellsFargo CEO
And then @RepAOC shifts to asking about #WellsFargo's role in the Dakota Access Pipeline

So a couple of months ago I told yall about a project thats threatening a forest on my ancestral homelands here in southern Maryland. I just want to give yall an update on whats going on and ask that you help me. PLEASE!
I first want to just begin by saying that I am a member of the Cedarville band of Piscataway. For those who do not know, the Piscataway are the indigenous peoples to the land currently known as Maryland and Washington, D.C. (Most of us reside in southern Maryland.)
Southern Maryland is still (for now) one of the counties in Md that haven’t been bulldozed to death by developers who want to build neighborhoods, shopping centers, multimillion dollar homes. (However, it’s developing fast).

@SenSanders Actually, none of the observers that went there, including the UN, said that the elections were fraudulent. It was the US who sent no observers and the Opposition who refused to participate who claimed that. As a matter of fact, the Opposition begged the UN not to send observers
@SenSanders What did many observers actually say about the elections in Venezuela?

It’s so strange to me (this happened during #NoDAPL too) how white folks can see the same photos and videos I do of peaceful Native actions and read violence.
Reminds me of this, where a “mountain country girl” with a confederate flag avi tried to say a photo of unloading firewood at Oceti during #NoDAPL was evidence of violence:
It’s almost as if any Native presence is a threat to the legitimacy of what is currently known as the United States. 🤔

I’m in the midst of supporting my close friends through an awful, heartbreaking tragedy so I don’t have the capacity to really even think about anything right now. But center and listen to Native voices on the MAGA hat boys.
These incidents are not new for Native folks. They’re part of larger systemic problems that stem from ongoing settler colonialism. Allow Native writers, reporters, and community members illuminate that context and nuance for you.
My entire TL is talking about a Native person for the first time that I’ve ever seen. Even during #NoDAPL. Please don’t let this be the last thing you tweet about Indigenous folks, let it lead to more advocacy and change.

I'm going to tweet as if I were a Bernie basher who pretended to be a feminist anti-racist. Ahem. Here it goes... Once upon a time, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was born and realized she wanted to be just like Hillary Clinton because her experience really resonated with her. She...
really liked Clinton's co-sponsoring of a bill that would have sent people to jail for flag-burning. She really liked Clinton's stumping for welfare reform & the crime bill. She really liked all the work The Clinton Foundation did in Haiti. She really liked Hillary's vote on...
Iraq. She really liked what Clinton did as SOS in Honduras. She really liked the way Clinton lied about her position on Honduras. And she really loved Clinton's sit-down interview with Mary J Blige. Basically, Clinton's whole brand of politics & policy appealed to Alexandria...

when you say the word, you're invoking the name of the irascible spirit of the Cacique of The Winds, Guabancex
was both the Chief of the Winds in the far away land of Aumatex and a deity. so was chief of spirit people
Nitaino means, "good people" and whenever the good people of the Caribe weren't, Guabancex turns into Juracán
