#PDX weekend is all about
for the 35,000 citizens whose native neural net doesn't involve priortizing English.

Ecosteaders will be around.
“Indigenous Language Justice,” SB 612 and SB 911. Currently, none of Oregon’s statewide systems reliably provide services or interpretation in Indigenous languages, despite the fact that Oregon is home to over 35,000 people whose primary language is one of more than 30 Indigenous languages.
“Indigenous language speakers from present-day Mexico, Central America, and South America should experience the fundamental human right to understand and be understood. Full stop,” Sen. Wlnsvey Campos (D-District 18, Aloha) said. “All Oregonians should have access to interpretation services if and when they need them. This is critical to our collective prosperity as Oregonians.”
Pueblo Unido, a member of the Fair Shot for All economic justice coalition, and the Collective of Indigenous Interpreters of Oregon are supporting the legislation to increase language access and ensure the inclusion of Indigenous communities in government.
SB 612 would result in the development of new evaluation processes for Indigenous languages, which would create a path for interpreters to demonstrate proficiency and obtain formal credentials.
SB 911 will establish a commission for Original Peoples from South America, Central America, and Mexico within the Oregon Advocacy Commissions Office, ensuring that Indigenous peoples from these regions are represented in state government and have a direct voice in policy proposals that concern their communities.""
It is time to stop ecological and economic genocide. Tortoise Mountain and Turtle Island natives are the original Ecosteaders. Long before European and other settlers with delusions about government-subsidized development in "blocks" of colonizer cash infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for any caucasian dudes as a "Chief" of anything or as any Executive Officer. The platform responsible for the most modern-day genocide on indigenous people is Zuckerberg's fascist Inc.
