The centuries-long desecration of sacred Kizh/Tongva land by mentally ill colonists:
Founded as a whites-only or a "sundown" town, Culver City 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 #fascistbook 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, a fascist genocidal tyrant 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.
#Kizh / 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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTlvsGlgQ9Q
[*] NOTE that all refs & records stored at Minnesota-based and Ivy-league institutions are HEAVILY BIASED TOWARD EUROCENTRIC thought and rarely, (no actually never) accurately account the native stories.
@indie No offense but subscribing to colonial myths about Europeans discovering America isn't a mental illness. Lots of us are mentally ill without doing a genocide about it
We are a tiny organization educating and defending for indigenous voices, arts, lands, waters, and peoples affected by colonialism and surveillance capitalism. The destruction of Turtle Island and increase of #MMIW during the rise of fascistbook and twoetter empires is unacceptable; indigenous peoples of Turtle Island deserve better -- to NOT BE ERASED, coerced, and censored. If you seek serenity and respite from the divisive colonist networks pumping malicious overinflated megacaps, let us know you are seeking invite, or find us from another mastodon instance.
