Colonizer social media is built upon inherent suppression and oppression of native voices.

Hate is literally programmed into the algorithms: from FB to Twotetter to Reddit, the whiteman-founded companies are all the same. Be not surprised they conspire!

With hate do they conspire to hijack the minds and hearts of our people. Steal, cut and take a piece our work to "maintain" illusion of power.

They cancel or shut us down when we draw attention to the crumbling foundation of colonial reality. Our well-documented efforts and hashtags and movements get trashed in favor of paid promotional messages from their wealthy colonist advertisers, the landlords.

I do not compromise my long and well-respected career as an underrepresented woman in technology for telling you this. Other women and PoC who have endured more than a year or two of the tech world will say the same. It is astoundingly difficult to be heard by folk who have no idea how to listen!

Native Turtle Islanders who do not want to be associated with colonizer advertising are wise to leave colonizer social media entirely. But where to go?

The Internet did not used to be this lonely for us outcasts... the Internet used to be our place. People could build focused niche things and other curious people could find and discover them and make new friends... and things that started could get a little bigger.

Nobody needed to aspire to a BILLION dollar valuation like the narcissists of YCombinator do.

Welcome to the Native Reclamation of Turtle Island

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.
