"The Great Lie is that this is civilization. It's not civilized. It has literally been the most blood-thirsty brutalizing system ever imposed upon this planet. This is not civilization, this is the Great Lie. or if it does represent civilization, and that is truly what civilization is, then the Great Lie is that civilization is good for us." - John Trudell

personal note: If you boost this and I recognize you as one of the people who unfollowed me last late-summer because white folk were claiming I was "genocidal" for suggesting folk question civilization, I'mma get in your mentions and ask you to share the story of your changed opinions since then, and ask if you'd like to apologise for taking part in a "cancelling" that resulted in the police coming to my home and smashing up my garden.

(I can believe this place is full of white folk who would dox indigenous queers for criticizing the kyriarchy: what I can't believe is how many people who call themselves an ally do it without even noticing.)

This mastodon instance is dedicated to the survival of indigenous languages, plant knowledge, art, and culture outside white supremacist-controlled networks Facebook and Twitter.
Decolonize food. Decolonize medicine. Decolonize housing. Decolonize from corrupt white supremacist networks. Decolonize the US from its oligarchal form of government! European statues, place names, words, languages, and accounting systems DO NOT BELONG on Turtle Island, and are killing the whole planet. "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as colonial systems continue to sink deeper into broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. #LivingWalls, not border walls. .
