"Deconstructing Patriarchy" is probably about 60 percent dismantling and 40 percent obliteration of broken systems.

Sometimes really broken things can't be dismantled; they need swept off the maps.

"The difficulty in promoting an Indigenous feminist message is the ... colonial nation-state under which Indigenous women are greatly marginalized. White populist feminism makes this battle even more difficult, and fails to aid the group of women that have suffered the most from their sustained privilege."

Important to point out how many landlords, "property management companies", realty companies and brokerages (the summation of which is the NAR) are run by boomer women (or men subscribed to boomer values) which always always always undervalue the slave laborers. They hate many things, especially talk and decolonization.

Labor will always be more valuable than capital. Every "realty" system the settler colonial states try to invent fails because it doesn't understand this simple truth. Deny the landlords both your labor and your capital, and they will fail. Don't be fooled by their appeals.

"The discussion of intersectionality seems only to be addressed when it is most convenient, or when it does not interfere with the white woman’s agenda; this is inherently harmful to the progression of Indigenous women’s rights and equality, as “any feminism that does not address land rights, sovereignty, and the state’s systematic erasure of the cultural practices of native peoples, or that defines native women’s participation in these struggles as non-feminist, is limited in vision and exclusionary in practice” (Suzack et al., 2010)."

"One of the greatest foes of intersectionality is the feminism that is most often promoted in mass media and read about in history books–white, Western feminism. The first two of the Three Waves of Feminism, while all striving to achieve equality in some form, have been centered around the voices of white women and failed to acknowledge the inherently exclusive and discriminatory nature of their movements."

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.
