Land back in action!

Some independent journalism elucidated very well @Briarpatch magazine.

Specifically interesting is this article on four IRL case studies of Land Back:

To the folk who see this and go "that's nice, very idealistic," this stuff does really happen.

Just last week I started coordinating with someone who's gifted me their authority to steward their half acre of good farmland.

(What's cool is that both of us are in the region from a diaspora put on our peoples; them the African Diaspora and me the 60s Scoop, so by cooperating we get to help each other fulfill Indigenous sovereignty and Black Liberation.)

@bhaugen Yea; it's often viewed as a Canadian thing but it was across Turtle Island. @indie

@emsenn
I heard about it from a Louise Erdrich book. She was at Turtle Mountain, on the North Dakota-Canadian border.

Tortoise Mountain Natives Do Not Like English Ivy

It is time to stop Ecological and economic genocide upon people of color. Tortoise Mountain and Turtle Island natives are the original Ecosteaders. Long before European and other settlers with delusions about government-subsidized Farmworld and Cafeworld development in "blocks" of colonialist infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for a white male "Chief" Executive Officer. Fix the problems plaguing Europe before testing your ideas here.
