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

1492 ... The correct answer is, "The year colonists started ruining America."

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.

Named this channel: ¨Patriarchal Wars on People¨ and added a really good recent find including some native communications to the ENglish-speaking colonists during 1960s and 1970s ... not that long ago, though the genocide continues.

¨This is not the 1880s. This was still happening in the 1960s.¨

"To date all aviation fuel used in Europe has been tax exempt..."

transportenvironment.org/sites Feb 2019

Contrast this with car fuel cost being ~⅓ tax taxfoundation.org/gas-taxes-in

This is ecologically irrational and socially unjust.

Anyone interested in decentralized action on this? I'm getting some ideas...

Hmmm. Institutions to save the languages of NA tribes? Not sure this will work, but it at least is an _effort_

¨
It would create institutions, housed throughout the country, that offer resource support for Native language students at all levels of learning and for schools and programs teaching Native languages. It would also provide resources to enhance distance learning capacity, according to the release.

Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii introduced the bill in the Senate, while Republican Rep. Don Young of Alaska introduced the House version of the bill.

Linguistic resources are a big issue in Alaska, where 20 Native languages are spoken, Young said. In 2008, the last speaker of the Eyak language died, and in 2018, Alaska declared a linguistic emergency in the state, he said in the release.

“Too many languages spoken by Indigenous people in Alaska and across the country face the threat of being forgotten; that must not happen,” Young said.

¨Four dead gray whales have washed ashore San Francisco Bay Area beaches in the last nine days.

In 2019, at least 13 dead whales washed ashore in the Bay Area and scientists said they feared it was because the animals were starving and couldn’t complete their annual migration from Mexico to Alaska. Biologists have observed gray whales in poor body condition during their annual migration since 2019, when an “unusual mortality event” was declared by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. ¨

Admin, meta 

Webserver admin for our unchartered, uncapitalized fork of creative resistance... is akin to dealing with lots and lots of messy split ends (split ends as in hairs), all the time.

v 3.3 release has some admin features from our early-implemented Apache diffs that we like, so might try to merge some in. Having personally spent SO MUCH TIME ON bare metal machine coding and other nonhijackable protocols, I really am baffled and kind of angry that we cannot reach more natives in distress. The fragile white settlers´ networks try hijack everything! Of course, that is what they were built to do. Are there seriously so few people who care?

Our messages are full of truth and more people should be talking about them... instead of how many TRILLIONS the EUropean-descended occupants AKA the US gov´t congress wants drill out from indigenous lands to fund and sustain gunpowder-wielding military forces all over the globe.

Seems like life is running out of patience for humans.
Is no wonder evolved into Turtle Island´s best prediction engine for how to avoid the overwhelmingly toxic fb ppl and their zombied, dead planets.

They really don't want you to discuss pay. Support the union and tell the bosses to go fuck themselves.

Ecosteader joined Tiktok today, and the first hashtag it showed as ¨trending¨ was EcoHacks ...

Interestingly enough, TIL Tiktok has been so valuable to women in regions where they are traditionally oppressed, some governments are trying to get it banned (lol). GLWT.

one such gov´t trying to get it banned is Pakistan:

Descriptions the legal buffs use is ¨bury them in discovery¨; that is, OVERWHELM them with convoluted[1] legalese, hoping that they will get DISTRACTED or surrender something useful to make the already powerful enemies more powerful.

To pin down or attack within the legal systems they built to protect their own delusions, they need as much ¨buy in¨ as possible from their cartel. The more info they have in the pool, the weaker you are against their attacks.
-----

¨The Water Protector Legal Collective, which also received an Energy Transfer subpoena, described the subpoenas as part of a set of tactics “designed to bury organizations in litigation and force organizations to spend precious resources, time, and energy defending against corporations.”

Energy Transfer “is on a fishing expedition for information that could lend credence to their ill-founded notion that nonprofit organizations and Water Protectors seeking to protect human rights and the earth for future generations were allegedly engaged in illicit activity,” said staff attorney Natali Segovia in a statement. “In reality, it is ETP and large corporations that break the law with impunity.” [1]
-----

Do not cede anything either to the 782B fascistbooks or to the 74.7 Billion Enbridge ETPs; both are fully invested and have already started to burn down Oregon to put more of their corrupted real estate agents and their shitty colonizer towns on the map. Every like you do on FB makes them more money, so it gets easier for them to do!

The destruction of the wild PNW is becoming more tragic every day. The natives who so naively shared their beautiful work and places with the white supremacist galaxy of Fascistbook have been pulled into potentially deadly orbits that we pray they can escape. Is vanity and ego of the white world so large that they cannot see what is happening?

Figured out a new trick to extend the life of kitchen sponges. Been making many grilled breads lately, and the dough bowls often seem to (usually accidentally) get mucked up by dough.

Using crumpled up foil to get the sticky bits off works quicker and better... saves the sponge.

Added new videos to the ¨Stop Evicting BIPOC¨ channel we created. For the folks who are more into visuals and drama than the written media can provide, we found a 2014 Vice news documentary on the delusional landlords of Arkansas. Arkansas is AKA ¨Landlord and Realtor Heaven¨ where the the colonists made laws such that cops do CRIMINAL EVICTIONS for renters who cannot or will not pay, even when landlords refuse to provide the minimum standard of habitability.

This continues despite the fact that debtors prisons are supposed to have been outlawed in the US a long time ago:

So... regarding the meta discussion about ¨currency: ¨That was 2014_RCT. Was it still happening in 2019_RCT?

Yes: arktimes.com/arkansas-blog/201

Is it still happening today?

Yes.

Meta notes about the YT channel: Nice single link with multiple well-investigated and reported facets of evidence you need that evictions today are the exact same as they were during Sitting Bull and Geronimo´s times... same as they were for Tiny House warriors in 2004 (video on channel), same as they were during the 2007 ¨financial crisis¨, which was also ~when was suddenly able to start collecting lots and lots and lots of money from its wealthy East coast, mostly European descendant investors to parcel up for themselves.

They claimed to want a better system, but they just wanted to spread their ¨lot and block¨ system ....

The lot and block survey system is a method used in the United States and Canada to locate and identify land, particularly for lots in densely populated metropolitan areas, suburban areas and exurbs.

Nowruz Mubarak! / Happy New Year!

Celebrated by people from various cultures all over the world for over 3,000 years, Nowruz—“now” meaning new and “ruz” meaning day—is the Persian/Zoroastrian New Year.

Nowruz takes place every year on the day of the vernal equinox, signifying the start of spring in the northern hemisphere.

If this seems like a little much, you are not alone in your concern for diligence. Now for the next bad news to any readers of Ecosteader who may also be tech luddites ... yeah, all those (I think Mark Zuckerber´s words were ¨Dumb Fucks¨) who _really think Fascistbook wants nothing in exchange for all of those warm, fuzzies .. you are in for bad, bad news:

Each cell/mobile phone needs these settings, too.

You can, in fact, go through all of the steps on your home computer / work machine / wherever AND still be tracked by the MALWARE of if you also look at , or if you message on its ¨Messenger¨ or if you browse Fascistbook on your mobile phone.

Is a different computer from your main desktop / workstation... sends pings to cellphone towers, bypassing security at the local level, where they may be configured differently. If insecure devices are on your local network, they are easy to compromise. Zoom exploits use this path frequently, though they never do anything but make the perpetrators look idiotic.

Valuable guide for decolonzing your computer and router from the biggest bullies selling your data, your friends´ and family´s data in the Internet world.

If you admin a router, is good idea to add all these sites to be BLOCKED both by your browser (cookies, x-site tracking) and, for (very diligent) admins can block at the firewall as well. Included screenshots of Firefox browser for examples.

Losing energy to document all the hard work that daily construction and rebuilding already are. Do not understand how vloggers try to do it all.

Things are_ getting done. Some projects ... like the ¨turn something in this pile of construction rubble into something cool¨ have resulted in neat things that will be documented some day.
