*sobs as e tries to figure out the least bad way to phrase the note defining "people who are indigenous to turtle island"*

I think I'll use "Oyáte Khéya Wíta" because I'd like to use Lakhota when I can, the problem is I just don't know it that well.

(But I'd love to like eventually have English words like "act" map onto their Lakhota nearish equivalent - even if the defining sentences are in English since I'm.)

(For the curious, my entire plan for the day is to incorporate this essay into my notes:

emsenn.net/letters/to-the-web/

Which'll require making... a /lot/ of records.

I'm not done adding in the first quote and it's 30 new terms already. :D

just sitting here trying to figure out how I want to refer to, collectively, the crises du jour, e.g. the 6th mass extinction and the contemporary climate disruption and their many consequence-crises.

Crises of Kyriarchism?

Crises of Ontology?

Environmentally Forced Social Contraction Period?

Remap for the indigenoUS, not RCMP or ICE

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 development in "blocks" of colonizer cash infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for any white dudes as a "Chief" Executive Officer. Get out of here and fix the problems plaguing Europe before trying to kill the indigenoUS Earth.
