We publish in a PUBLIC space so women like Kerry Labrador (Mi´ḱmaw mother of 3) do not have to keep chaining themselves to heavy equipment machinery in order to get their message out that a giant tarsands pipeline vector of poison should not be allowed near any clean rivers or waterways.

Indie sure would appreciate anyone one the ground who realizes it is wiser to trust her company more than they trust the sociopathic whiteman billionaires companies. All these protests mean nothing when they are ¨caught and contained¨ or outright censored.

Too hard to find what matters amid all those trillions of ads. Also: combined market cap of colonizer social media is in the trillions of colonizer dollars, so there are too many distractions. Billion dollar social media empires full of garbage, spam

Our MIDYEAR accounting for 2020 - 2021 (2020ᓴᓕᑎ_ᑭᖃᑎ)-2021ᓴᓕᑎ_ᑭᖃᑎ) is as follows...

TOTAL revenue from goodfaith payments received at our PO Box, cash donations of any kind,, advertisements of any kind from any source, ecosteader patreon, YT channels, partner channels, royalties, commissions, tips, etc:

$0.00

🎉 Zero colonial dollars is zero paper wasted and zero minings of what colonists call ¨resources¨ needed. Enough recyclable ¨resources¨ exist already.

Do not conflate a lack of revenue in colonial dollars with lack of work performed; the work of an Ecosteader .... does not compute in colonizer accounting. Ecosteaders are not ¨nonprofit¨; we do not have an employee or department dedicated to soliciting donations or charitable fundraising for poor helpless ¨worthy causes¨ like a weak or helpless people. Indigenous people are strong... are are just few in number, like an endangered species.

"Mu ni'n nenuaqapnaq pitu'nugumijaq ... "

Means roughly ~ "I did not know my great-grandmother."

Her daughter, my maternal grandmother, passed away in 1972, a little over seven years before I was born. While the US Censuses[1] were taken during the 1800's, at least one of my great grandmothers was not counted as a living, breathing human by colonist standards. Colonists whose ships landed on the East coast may have been fleeing oppression in their initial waves of arrival, but they brought with them insanities of Christianity and capitalism[2], which soon after arrival, they smashed together into a racist government [screenshot 2 describes the 1790 Census taken by George Washington's administration sought to count the numbers of "Whites" with a capital W.]

As a result, the waves of white settlers got bigger and the more people who showed up, the harder it was for them to see the humans who lived here as humans... they saw only the land and each other and invented the first denomination of what has come to be excessive colonial money ... desperate to claim some form of entitlement.

1790 was the first year of the first US Census[3]. It was not a mistake or neglect that failed to count her household as humans ... it was white supremacy, patriarchy and male-dominated society with deliberate intent to exclude non-white, AKA non-European (English and French) language speakers.

Map has several First Nations and unceded territories, peoples, place names on an undefined border between what is present-day US and Canada (the so-called US of A and KKKanada).

The centuries-long desecration of sacred Kizh/Tongva land by mentally ill colonists:

Founded as a whites-only or a "sundown"[2] town, Culver City[3] is Yet Another Corrupt Node (Y.A.C.N) of colonization to be dismantled.

Sound familiar? In the closing credits of big-budget movies and TV, Culver City is home base of colonizer-focused production studios[a], AKA pretty much every public airwave in the US of A. (Unfortunately, PBS takes a great deal of money to promote the these days!) Such colonizer-focused production studios continually refuse to acknowledge the real native story, preferring to distract with short-sighted issues and other things they want to control.

Like the cutely-named trio of ships from overseas arrived around the same time and with the same delusions, so too did Culver City´s "founding father". Harry Culver was mentally ill when he arrived, perpetuating a delusion that Columbus had discovered America... and that as a Privileged White Man, it was all his for the taking. Never mind those burned villages![*]

Culver and his buddy James Henry Carleton[4], a fascist genocidal tyrant[3] worked together to push the REALTOR agendas, as they murdered a definitive number of native language speakers of the American Southwest.

Ecological impacts of the colonization not even 100 years later are determinable enough to say it is bad: take a few minutes to look up ¨Salton Sea¨, or any CA-marine coastal disaster or anything poisoning the heart of the Rio Grande.

/ Tongva land today in LA does not resemble anything it once did, but a few native people who survived Carleton and Culver´s murderous legacy did survive: youtube.com/watch?v=tTlvsGlgQ9

To everyone writing something long-winded and technical for a PhD:

Train your research snippets / compilation string stream to stop calling native places the wrong things.

Use a _direct_, specific tone (suggest ALL CAPS where colonized humans may read and infer) to make it very clear or ¨irrefutable¨ what parts of the research cannot be confirmed or verified independently of RCT. RCT-centric descriptions and variables shall never be asserted as evidence or base or basis for any foundational theories or practices pertaining to indigenous or pre-Columbus Native Americans (the carbon bodies); nor shall RCT ever be used to co-opt the most important native-led narratives on the lands. These words are true in both digital and analog.

Furthermore: academic or fictional works that contain sentence phrases like ¨In 1932¨ ... or "by the 15th Century" can be dissolved. Definitions which implicitly center the narrative on white supremacy make fatal mistakes in every world. This is one of the few absolutes of quantum[1].

Do not ask what RCT means! Read the documentation that exists. The quantum universe does better worlds; however, it does not offer room for fragile white settlers. Focus more on the ¨white settlers¨aspect of that definition to begin the changes necessary for . Regarding that adverb ¨fragile¨: white settlers must realize always that WHITES ARE NOT A PIONEER INTO QUANTUM SPACE. Intrusion on our lands have always been considered intrusion (never trust).

Decolonization is prerequisite for quantum is prerequisite for the smallest iota needed to start ¨________ world¨.

The RCT of 1810 was how soon ago? The of ~2006ish flooded with corruption 9 years ago, inflating the most corrupt toxic vessels of real estate in the known two-leggeds´Universe. Is proof fascistbook and RCT are bound together in all things corrupt.

ONE YEAR TOO LATE IS STILL TOO LATE.

Wildfire season in the Western US is upon us; some of the driest and droughtiest weather in a long time.

Screenshot [source:1] shows the depletion of a region in Southern California where the colonial empires founded by mentally ill colonists[2], like those who founded Culver City, have absolutely nothing to be proud of today. Probably a good idea to keep a close eye on CalFire site. [3]

Oregon and the whole is also expecting ¨excessive¨ heat with temperatures expected to be ~107 this weekend.

The MMIW body count keeps going up ... in both US and Canada. Hundreds of more bodies of children found.

¨A First Nation in southern Saskatchewan said Wednesday that it has discovered hundreds of unmarked graves at the site of another former residential school for Indigenous children.

A statement from the Cowessess First Nation and the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous First Nations, which represents Saskatchewan’s First Nations, said that “the number of unmarked graves will be the most significantly substantial to date in Canada.”

Now, with all of those ¨official¨ political borders... why would this be? What on Earth do the US and Canada have in common?

¨From the 19th century until the 1970s, more than 150,000 First Nations children were required to attend state-funded Christian schools as part of a program to assimilate them into Canadian society. They were forced to convert to Christianity and not allowed to speak their native languages. Many were beaten and verbally abused.

The Canadian government apologized in Parliament in 2008 and admitted that physical and sexual abuse in the schools was rampant. Many students recall being beaten for speaking their native languages; they also lost touch with their parents and customs.

Indigenous leaders have cited that legacy of abuse and isolation as the root cause of epidemic rates of alcoholism and drug addiction on reservations.¨

In US-occupied Hawaii's schools you learn nonsense like Hawaiians lived in mud huts before colonization. In fact, Hawaii already had electricity, mass transit, railroads, world's highest literacy rate & our capitol had electricity before the White House.

Dismantling colonialism looks a lot like shutting down all GEO group prisons.

Most of these were extended lengthy "contracts" by Trumpublicans, hoping to bank future wealth off human suffering and inhumane conditions.

You probably do not have to look far in your region to find where ICE detainees are being held illegally and against their will for "not having papers".

Barbed wire-covered private detention centers constructed to make millionaires and their customers more money.

For anyone lucky enough to have the 401K or other kind of retirement, is good idea to call and DEMAND none of your investment go to fund these things. Do not surrender executive control to the white man! The GEO group is a cartel of them.

Some signs in downtown Tacoma aka region along the theme of what we protest for today... the disgusting violation of human rights need stopped.

The detention center here is also in an industrial area where several toxic pollutants from PUGET SOUND ENERGY are endangering the workers and prisoners. This is treaty land that is being violated.

Two, abduction with intent to assimilate or murder is only one mechanism of ethno/genocide, and it is naive to think that the ethno/genocidal goals were abandoned just because residential schools fell out of favour.

I am the child of someone who was abducted off of a reservation and sold into a white family. I have a blood pedigree. In Canada and the US Southwest, Indigenous women are forcibly sterilized if they go to a Western hospital.

Wakamidori shiso (first pic) came up from one of the seeds on last year´s plant. Shiso is an especially important cultural food in some Nihongo regions cuisine; very tasty too.

Interesting translations around Nihongo -- means something kind of meta in Japanese, like the way colonized Americans call Turtle Island their ¨country¨, iicrc but do not quote me on this.

My family just found out that the land we'd gotten permission to live on is $6k deep in missed payments.

If anyone has a bit to spare, we're still waiting on our first round of pandemic aid, and until we get my social security name change stuffs fixed we can't even do a proper gofundme or whatever.

My partner, @sesshirecat, has a Paypal that hasn't been shut down, if you have anything you can contribute.

paypal.me/sesshirecat

We have until Monday or Tuesday (6th or 7th of June) to find enough to pay this, otherwise the former owners will sue and we'll be up shytte's creek again.

I've been busting my ass to make the land liveable for us and our three-month-old, but apparently I've not been fast enough at that.

Literally anything helps right now. I'm attempting to cash out my old 403b, there's some bonds that a friend might sell to help, and we have a little bit (a hundred or two) saved from TANF to add to the stack...going to ask our caseworker if they know of any options too...open to suggestions on ways to negotiate with the seller or...anything...

...like I said, anything helps.
