Wildfire season in the Western US is upon us; some of the driest and droughtiest weather in a long time.

Screenshot [source:1] shows the depletion of a region in Southern California where the colonial empires founded by mentally ill colonists[2], like those who founded Culver City, have absolutely nothing to be proud of today. Probably a good idea to keep a close eye on CalFire site. [3]

Oregon and the whole is also expecting ¨excessive¨ heat with temperatures expected to be ~107 this weekend.

The MMIW body count keeps going up ... in both US and Canada. Hundreds of more bodies of children found.

¨A First Nation in southern Saskatchewan said Wednesday that it has discovered hundreds of unmarked graves at the site of another former residential school for Indigenous children.

A statement from the Cowessess First Nation and the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous First Nations, which represents Saskatchewan’s First Nations, said that “the number of unmarked graves will be the most significantly substantial to date in Canada.”

Now, with all of those ¨official¨ political borders... why would this be? What on Earth do the US and Canada have in common?

¨From the 19th century until the 1970s, more than 150,000 First Nations children were required to attend state-funded Christian schools as part of a program to assimilate them into Canadian society. They were forced to convert to Christianity and not allowed to speak their native languages. Many were beaten and verbally abused.

The Canadian government apologized in Parliament in 2008 and admitted that physical and sexual abuse in the schools was rampant. Many students recall being beaten for speaking their native languages; they also lost touch with their parents and customs.

Indigenous leaders have cited that legacy of abuse and isolation as the root cause of epidemic rates of alcoholism and drug addiction on reservations.¨

In US-occupied Hawaii's schools you learn nonsense like Hawaiians lived in mud huts before colonization. In fact, Hawaii already had electricity, mass transit, railroads, world's highest literacy rate & our capitol had electricity before the White House.

@hierarchon What you mean is, ¨Twitter is stealing everybody´s art thunder and selling it to Russian billionaires and their spoiled blonde-haired blue eyed princesses.¨

Dismantling colonialism looks a lot like shutting down all GEO group prisons.

Most of these were extended lengthy "contracts" by Trumpublicans, hoping to bank future wealth off human suffering and inhumane conditions.

You probably do not have to look far in your region to find where ICE detainees are being held illegally and against their will for "not having papers".

Barbed wire-covered private detention centers constructed to make millionaires and their customers more money.

For anyone lucky enough to have the 401K or other kind of retirement, is good idea to call and DEMAND none of your investment go to fund these things. Do not surrender executive control to the white man! The GEO group is a cartel of them.

Some signs in downtown Tacoma aka region along the theme of what we protest for today... the disgusting violation of human rights need stopped.

The detention center here is also in an industrial area where several toxic pollutants from PUGET SOUND ENERGY are endangering the workers and prisoners. This is treaty land that is being violated.

Pacific NW folks, upcoming solidarity events with the :

LIBEREN LA TIERRA, LIBEREN AL PUEBLO EVENTO SOLIDARIO (FREE THE LAND, FREE THE PEOPLE SOLIDARITY EVENT/ ) this Sunday in Tacoma, WA

Quote reposted from justseeds.org[2]

¨... join us in taking on Puget Sound Energy’s liquid natural gas plant. This is an 8 million gallon LNG tank situated on the Tacoma tide flats industrial area near the Puget Sound violating Puyallup people’s treaty rights. You can tell PSE to respect the Puyallup Tribe and keep the facility off while the Tribe and community members await a court verdict that could invalidate their major permits later this summer. Actions steps can be found at

bit.ly/messageCEOKipp

3 minute trial recap video by 350 Tacoma and to learn more about the LNG in Tacoma watch Native Daily Network’s documentary Ancestral Waters (nativedailynetwork.org/ancestr)

FREE THE LAND, FREE THE PEOPLE SOLIDARITY EVENT/ LIBEREN LA TIERRA, LIBEREN AL PUEBLO EVENTO SOLIDARIO at noon on Sunday, June 13th outside of the detention center in Tacoma with Water Warriors, La Resistencia, 350 Seattle and more to recognize these fights are intertwined and we need each other. The facility address is 1623 E J St, Tacoma, WA 98421 . This facility (already located on a superfund site) is also located on the Tacoma tide flats and would be decimated if the LNG exploded putting all the people in detention and workers at risk. People being detained already complain of skin irritations and other health complications due to the facility’s water and industrial air.¨

Shall we discuss the suppression and burial of this most valuable comment?

Redditors SO SCARED OF INDIGENOUS WOMEN. Now is not the time to tuck them in with sweet nothings... probably the NNs will give them back their night terrors.


**Why Germany's Apology for Its 1904-1908 Genocide in Namibia Does Not Go Far Enough**

"Germany has apologized for its role in the first genocide of the 20th century, which took place in Namibia, a former colony then known as German South West Africa. Between 1904 and 1908, German colonizers killed tens of thousands of Ovaherero and Nama people in Namibia. German Foreign Minister He…"

Two, abduction with intent to assimilate or murder is only one mechanism of ethno/genocide, and it is naive to think that the ethno/genocidal goals were abandoned just because residential schools fell out of favour.

I am the child of someone who was abducted off of a reservation and sold into a white family. I have a blood pedigree. In Canada and the US Southwest, Indigenous women are forcibly sterilized if they go to a Western hospital.

End food apartheid now, because by the time you need to, it will be too late.

(PLEASE seriously if you live in the West and eat food, click this link. You need to understand the severity of the threats on your horizon.)

I'm Native Hawaiian and been repeatedly homeless in my own land, like so many others. While American and other foreign billionaires own countless mansions &unoccupied multi-million dollar condos here. Zuckerberg's1300 acre ranch, Larry Ellison owns Lana'i. Fuck colonialism.

Instalkergram ought not be allowed to own map authority on any indigenous anything. FB _is_ its CDN. Subversive cooption is their modus operandi.

The implications of letting it do this are beyond deadly for native people. There still plenty of people out there who care more about money than fragile native things.

Not a good idea for anybody to be encouraged to go tying themselves to heavy equipment machinery in the vicinity of a 965 Billion Pound rusty robot about to collapse, if you know what I mean.
