Despite the mangled connotation of "secure net" due to the words "securenet" in the URL, the page IS NOT SECURE; it contains tracking scripts from the , and outward-bound advertising links promoting .

Theoretically, while this effort could add more native voices to the airwaves,we gotta be honest in that the presence of such links indicates that it is being lorded over by Y.A.W.G.; "Yet Another White Guy"[3]. It is a bad clone of a failed recipe:

Y.A.W.G. requires Facebook and Twitter users to validate him (the savvy ones use their white privilege money to buy promotions).

¨In Brazil, 6,000 Indigenous people representing 176 groups have been camping out in the capital Brasília to condemn the destruction of the Amazon rainforest and the genocide of Indigenous peoples. The massive gathering and protests come ahead of a pivotal Supreme Court decision that could either help restore, or severely limit, Indigenous sovereignty over their ancestral lands.¨

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.

REPOST w/updated details.

PDX folks might want to avoid 99E tomorrow, as quite a caravan of local native youth are running to honor survivors and descendants of survivors of residential schools in the US and KKKanada.

So if you are driving and start feeling upset that there is a jam of _traffic_ and other inconvenience in your way as the youth run, perhaps take a deep breath and listen for a few minutes to survivor Chris Metatawabin talk about his experience at¨St. Anne's school, a notorious residential school that had an electric chair¨:

youtu.be/9SFfMnmR-b0

The public part of the run (comrades and allies welcome) will begin mid-morning at the Community River Park in Canby: 1348 SW Berg Parkway. The youth organizers of this event have the following requests for anybody joining the run:

¨Please wear orange and a mask around community members. When running, run behind or along the sides of Indigenous runners, please try not to pass Indigenous runners, and always stay behind the person carrying a wooden staff. For cultural purposes, non-Indigenous people may not carry the staff, but feel free to carry an orange bandana, or a sign with a message along the lines of “1500+ children” “Justice for Indigenous families” “May the children rest in peace”. Please no triggering imagery or language, remember there are people who are directly affected.¨

The youth will also have orange caps and shirts available.

Please read the whole thread for context of the above photograph.

Colonists use patriarchal-brainwashing to continually probe and ask for "more evidence" of the reality of genocide. The "beyond reasonable doubt" clause is often abused to make the issues about gathering of "more" evidence when there is already plenty available. Usually a thin attempt to cast heroes rather than perpetrators of genocide.

Thanks to @emsenn for the link and quote (tip them @ duckpond: discord.gg/zRJ9kEbawd):

"Roman Catholic churches in Saskatoon and across Canada had also signed an agreement promising to raise $25 million to compensate Daniels and tens of thousands of other survivors for the emotional, physical and sexual abuse, malnutrition, cultural shaming and systemic violations of basic human rights suffered in Catholic-run residential schools.

...But most of that money was never raised.

...While the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon and its 80,000 members spent $28.5 million on the new cathedral, they raised just $34,650 for survivors.

The story was similar in other cities. Canada's 12 million Catholics donated less than $4 million of the promised $25 million, roughly 30 cents/ person.

After several years, the federal government told the Catholic Church to pay up.

Instead, church officials hired one of Canada's top lawyers, who, in a private court hearing, successfully argued that the country's Catholic churches had tried their best, had no more to give.

...On July 16, 2015, after a secret hearing the previous month, Justice Neil Gabrielson sided with the Catholic Church, saying the federal lawyer wasn't clear enough in his opposition to the proposal and a "reasonable person" would conclude a deal had been struck.

The Catholic churches quickly paid the $1.2 million buyout. They were still more than $21 million short of their commitment, but were absolved of any further legal or financial obligations."

More American history the
settler-colonials of the last 529 years can no longer refuse to acknowledge is that that "U.S. Constitution" they wave around as being so supreme is disgustingly "not supreme" in numerously counted ways.

The governments that implemented the residential school model do not get to describe their systems or laws as "supreme": not in the courts, not in the laws or spoken words either.

Has modern thought evolved much from early imperialists' tragic model of "civilization" built on inter-continental genocide? More evidence surfaces that the answer is no. U.S. dollar-driven colonialism ¨ has not evolved¨. Both the
U.S.-Mexico "border patrol" and U.S.-Canada "border patrol" doing same thing.

Occupants and descendants of mentally ill colonists who imposed these residential schools on indigenous populations mostly hailed from Spain and France and other places in Europe heavily dependent upon institutionalized slave labor.

Let us repeat that this was not acceptable then and is not acceptable now.

"Moqo".

Moqo is Mi'kmaq word === ¨No¨ .

Logically and for all scenarios pertaining to pre-Columbus peoples does 'Moqo' override everything in the Queen's English.

Do not be lulled by colonists trying to queue theatrical piano or chamber music.

Is not fantasy that murdered those Kamloops and Marieval children! Those fascistbook and twoetter apps may seem innocent enough, but they are like grapple hooks the colonists use to distort the truth.

The IRL body count, even if hundreds of years old, is still dead bodies.

This Thursday, some folks are gathering for support of local survivors.. and there are likely some similar events in your region too. Do not expect us to do the research for you, whereever you are.

Fueled and funded by the soulless settler states, indigenous genocide continues and yet remains largely ignored by the colonial population.

Have you heard these names?

Photos from the awareness march in Window Rock today.

"5712 Native Women were Reported MISSING in 2016 NOW WE LOST COUNT" says the message from one indigenous warrior.

As one of the largest and strongest remaining native populations, several Diné people of the Navajo Nation have taken a community approach to bring more awareness to missing and murdered indigenous.

MMIWs are ALMOST ALWAYS victims of psychological and emotional abuse before their attackers succeed in silencing them permanently.

Indeed, the very tactics used by the KGB to demean and oppress a people into "compliance" with the fascist state are employed by Facebook in its subtle and persistent psychological warfare on people. It knows that depressed people are easier to exploit; and emotionally exploited people are far more likely to accidentally click on one of the advertisements it needs to stay in business.

Do not consent to that kind of business.

We do not consent.

Welcome to the secrets of outer ring (outer core root ring) composting for health and happiness old trees, and their ecosystems.

Think of composting as feeding the ecosystem -- in both literal and figurative sense. Think of the indigenous people as the heart of an ecosystem, ones most familiar with the ventricles of its heart.

In the shadow of some of the tallest Sequoias in the region (indeed, in the whole continent), our local ecosystem is one that formed in shade and filtered light provided by an old-growth forest of the ancient PNW.[1]

Colonialism has been destroying old-growth forests at, above and below this latitude... removing natives, shelter, shade and oxygen-exchanging life for far too long. All to build luxury condos, HOAs and McMansions for rent on AirBnB.

Fake shade, such as that provided by English Ivy, does not help a Turtle Island ecosystem. What should be much more diverse native cover is missing when such invasives are present. Non-natives do not know how to care for natives (and they never will, no matter what the does to try to save its face).

¨Cannot save ur ass and face at the same time.¨

Colonialism destroying native habitats with complicitness alongside (taking $$$$$$$$$$ from Realtors, like Facebook does!). It is an 800 BILLION COLONIAL DOLLAR TOXIC WASTE DUMP.

From this Earth day and beyond... a gentle reminder that Natives ought never be charged with anything (including dollars) as they move freely about on their lands everywhere.

As a final note... would love some help. IRL, decolonization is much harder than adding compost to roots in some trees being landlorded by colonial rent seekers.

All the experts saying the same thing we do:

[1] monumentaltrees.com/en/usa/ore This literal giant linked above... we kid you not.. it is being OVERRUN with toxic ivy. Owners of house near these trees coerce poor migrants to ¨cultivate¨ the Ivy with weed whackers terrorize the natives.

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.

An indigenous woman from Fang Thai is working with villagers to decolonize the life cycle of a sacred plant food.

In Fang Thai, (also India and China and the US) ... burning large swaths of land containing remnants of crops at the end of harvest like all the farmers do makes bad air quality[1], but since it is done just once a year most tend to think it is okay... but the wastefulness has been normalized by colonization.

Letting it rot on the soil creates methane (also not good).

Colonization tends to brainwash colonized humans (that is: those who seek the work products of small villagers) into thinking of the plant as a homogeneous commodity; is good for selling the rice grains only, discard the rest (burn or re-till).

The leftover material, however, can be used other ways not burning. The indigenous woman is making biodegradable alternative to plastic ¨to go¨ containers that street food vendors in nearby cities can use instead of Styrofoam.

Sharing good ideas globally[3] means credit the genius properly. To her, we extend Ecosteader Long Memory, or . Good work, Jaruwan Khammuang!

Warriors of the Sunrise

An electronic billboard was their last hope to assert the Nation's right to express for Shinnecock survival. For 26 days, a Sovereignty Camp:

¨“We've had snow, we've had rain, we've had sleet, we've been under tornado watch,” said Tela Troge. She’s a member of Warriors of the Sunrise, the group of Shinnecock women who organized the occupation ... spurred by a recent dispute with state and local government over a 61-foot tall electronic billboard. The Shinnecock Nation built the monument by the highway to generate advertising revenue. Troge, who’s a lawyer, spent years on the legal research to prove that it was on Shinnecock land.

“Shinnecocks have been very good neighbors to the town of Southampton since 1640 and, in return, they have not respected us at all. They have literally stole our land from us and when we worked on opportunities so we could have our own funding, they have stopped us,” said a supporter named Jennifer. She credits her Shinnecock family with keeping her alive through poverty. They let her use their showers and brought her electric blankets while she was living in a tent. “I wouldn't have survived almost two years that I lived there because the Nation, they couldn't help me,” she said.

The high level of poverty among the Shinnecock Nation stands in stark comparison to the surrounding area, home to a number of wealthy individuals, and with real estate prices among the highest in the country. Margo Thunderbird, a Shinnecock elder, said while that’s always been the case, the Shinnecock people’s relationship with their neighbors has changed since the 1950s.

For decades modern-day settlers and colonists have given no regard to the calls of the Shinnecock people to respect and preserve their ancestral grave sites; they have continued to build their mansions and golf courses, the town and state would prefer to act as if the Shinnecock simply do not exist.¨

Decolonization Is The Reverse Of Gentrification ...

So, probably this is what needs to happen to every building with ivy on it...

"“How do you reverse-gentrify?” asked Flint Jamison, co-founder and president of the Yale Union contemporary arts center. “Give the fucking land back! Turn the keys over.”"

Yeah, I was force-fed the settler delusion about endless free land for the taking and hardy pioneers ... they did this to all the kids in my younger elementary and middle school days.

"The issue I had with Oregon Trail is that it always put Native people in relation to settlers,” said Anishinaabe, Métis video game designer Elizabeth LaPensée, who teaches at Michigan State University. “The game is all about colonization.” - Native News Online

Fast forward about 40 years, and LaPensée and a team of writers and artists have remixed the tired old Oregon Trail into the Indigenous-focused “When Rivers Were Trails.”"

Great interview with Nick Tilsen (NDN Collective) about how the Oglala Sioux and Cheyenne River people are making it known that they explicitly prohibit the colonist's "President" from trespassing and intruding on their sovereign sacred territory. He does not have permission at this time.

The colonial state of South Dakota's "governor" Kristi Noem recently stared her hideous face and vacant, dead eyes into a TV camera and insisted that neither masks nor social distancing would be required the rally Trump wants there.

As Covid-19 cases have been accelerating in several states, the idiocy of colonist leaders cannot be underestimated.

Lots of love to the indigenous people of the region; keep yourselves safe.

All the cultures on Turtle Island have similar concepts in spiritual teachings... found another gem earlier today:

sixthsunridaz.com/

Strange how none of my "facebook friends" (back in 2018 when checking fb occasionally was something I did) happened to get the news that the bronze statue of that TYRANT CORNWALLIS was finally, finally, FINALLY REMOVED FROM the PREMISES!!! In 2018? Why did it take so long to make this known?

The harder they try holding back the truth, the harder it hits them in the face...

Getting rid of colonist and tyrant names and namesakes on "place names" is about the smartest thing any community that desires decolonization can do.

"The removal of the statue, which was installed by the Canadian National Railway in 1931, came after increasing controversy over Cornwallis’s so-called scalping proclamation that offered a cash bounty to anyone who killed a Mi’kmaw person.

“It’s important for us to have the statue removed because white supremacist groups were rallying around the beliefs and ideologies Cornwallis had perpetuated hundreds of years ago,” said Patles.

“And we believe the scalping proclamation … is the seeds of missing and murdered Indigenous women.”

A municipal staff report last week recommended removing the statue in the name of public safety.

The report stated there could have been attempts during Sunday’s rally to tear down the statue as well as possible violent clashes between protesters.

Last year, on Canada Day, a group of protesters demonstrating in front of the statue was confronted by a smaller group called the Proud Boys. While the confrontation didn’t become violent, the incident intensified the debate about the statue."
