"#Astronomers Need to Rename the #MagellanicClouds" an opinion piece by Mia de los Reyes

I'm in favor because that name is there solely to glorify somebody from a perspective of a flawed set of values. Directly quoting: "Names reflect community values. Naming objects, buildings, and places after people has long been a way for society to honor individuals for their discoveries, their accomplishments, or the values they symbolize. Magellan made no #astronomical discoveries, and for many, he continues to be a symbol of imperialist and anti-Indigenous violence."

I see the complication of old texts becoming obsolete and I would be completely comfortable telling newcomers that e.g. "Yes, it used to be named after a murderous #colonialist but we then realized it was a bad idea and the confusion that currently exists now serves as a reminder to care for one another."

@crosswordhero Green Majority. The hosts are in Ontario, but they have a good mix of news, interviews, and analysis addressing Canada as a whole, as well as commentary on US climate news. Most importantly to me, the white settler hosts get that #decolonization is not a metaphor, and that settlers supporting Indigenous leadership is THE solution to the climate crisis. This podcast is the reason I found out about the Cree co-authored book The End Of This World: Climate Justice In So-Called Canada, a book which has been saving me from despair.

#Modi is taking the #decolonization of #India serious!

Another fantastic story. About whaling by multiple First Nations on Vancouver Island. And if you've ever been to the American Natural History Museum, you might have seen the “Whalers Washing House" which was a sacred shrine with dozens of tall human forms made of wood (Picture in the article). They were taken from the Mowachaht/Muchahlaht in Yuquot in 1904.

Here's hoping one day they are returned.

“For many Native Hawaiians, the ruins of Lahaina are a harbinger of what’s to come if Hawaiʻi continues to follow the capitalist system under US occupation.”
It is encouraging to see calls for #decolonization from within the US #Empire. Nationalism can be a tricky beast, & I hope Hawaiians navigate it better than others undergoing the same process.

The author conflates decolonialization with establishing racial equity, and then conflates racial equity in the mathematics classroom with teaching students that everyone, not just "dead white men," are able to do mathematics. She attributes the lack of diversity in mathematics to flawed teaching methods which perpetuate the false idea that success in math is due to talent rather than hard work. This, she says, teaches women and non-white people that math isn't for them.

This is certainly correct as far as it goes, but she doesn't go nearly far enough. The solution she offers, and remember that this is supposedly a way to decolonialize mathematics, is to somehow teach all students that math is for them also, that they're capable of learning math if they only study hard enough. Her conclusion is worth quoting at length:

"To transform mathematics teaching and learning in ways that empower students, universities need to give students the theoretical grounding they need to access the subject and support them to identify with it –- to want to learn it, to become the mathematicians of the future, to enjoy and critique mathematics and its applications."

And she may well be right that if math teachers could come to believe this and to teach as if it were true, which it is, then university mathematics might become much, much more diverse. But that's not decolonialization, which means the elimination of colonialism's effects, both cultural and social.

The very idea that everyone ought to learn mathematics, that anyone *needs* to learn mathematics, is an artifact of colonialism. Mathematics is interesting, fascinating, whatever, just like every other area of human knowledge, but it's treated very, very differently, as if it were essential to every human life. The reason it seems different, much more important than subjects universally understood to be electives, e.g. phenomenology or raku methods in ceramics, both of which are also taught in universities, is because colonial powers, among whom I include the contemporary U.S., require (a) techocrats to run their ongoing project of exploitation and (b) a lot of people who've failed to learn math and thereby have learned quite well that they don't have standing or knowledge to challenge the decrees of the technocrats.

Nobody thinks that everybody should learn to appreciate the subtle beauty of raku theory or the ins and outs of phenomenology, only that they should have the opportunity to do so if they want. The universal study of subjects like these isn't important to the colonial project. We can begin to decolonialize mathematics by teaching ourselves to see it as nothing more than a special interest, no more important from the point of view of the curriculum than any other obscure elective subject. Anyone who doesn't interrogate the assumption that everyone needs to, or ought to, or would be better off learning mathematics isn't talking about decolonializing anything, they're talking about accommodating students to the needs of colonialists.

The fourth instance of our online Degrowth seminar series is coming up, on September 19th, 2 PM-3 PM CEST

“The future of degrowth: Decolonizing more than the imaginary” by Dr. Brototi Roy (Central European University, Vienna)

In recent years, degrowth has sparked multiple discussions, analyses and actions on repoliticizing the debate for socio-ecological justice and equity. Since the beginning of the movement as an activist slogan, there have been calls for decolonizing the imaginary. In this talk, Dr. Roy will engage with the idea of how can this decolonization be more material.

The talk will take place on Zoom, registration here:
It will be followed by 30 min of informal discussion for those interested.

Decolonizing African cinema in the time of Netflix

'90% of Africa’s cultural legacy resides outside the continent; audiovisual restitution is a battle for memory as urgent as artefact restitution… Images are recontextualized through what some African filmmakers call the “reappropriation” of narrative. It is the fight for representation of the images of a deformed and exoticised Africa on the screen at the hands of the colonial powers.'

I love a good andrewism video, and ive been saving this one for a while:

As a white man who has suffered about 10 oppressive words in his life; When i see #indigenous joy i instinctively want to take it for myself, to wrap myself in its authenticity and forgivness.
However, as a tradition barer of the song, language, and seanachas of this island I have to reconcile the knife-edge intersection between this appropriative white supremacy and native Irish #decolonization
(and as an Ulsterman descended in the large part from planter stock i have other bonus baggage aswell!)

So this video is a rollercoaster as the white settler with dreadlocks in my head desperatly leaps at any break in the clouds which authenticates my desired position as indiginous, while, my accomplice-spirit fights them off 'this is not for you, you owe energy to these concepts, you must not be a beneficiary of them'

Toward the end Andrewism discusses, brielfly the concept of 'Naturalization' which provides a structured conduit for me to 'give my strength to the land' without strying close to appropriation.

Of cource, even then the lynchpin is community and family, so i remain, excluded; A hermit, a rewilding hobbyist.

I'm posting about this because almost no one locally even knows we have been working hard at #remediation for decades so far. I'm 48 yrs old now. I joined remediation efforts when I was 29 yrs old.
We have never stopped trying to remediate this area. Most locals still have no idea about the true history of the area either. Graverobbers & other #unethical human scavenger types stole a lot of evidence from the site & that's made it harder for #decolonization work on ground.

@fulelo @farhanasultana @ericholthaus
Here some extracts of the article (to make you read it, it's totally worth 😉):

"While the global community congratulates itself on achieving what is politically possible, we cannot overlook the anemic nature of the agreement considering the magnitude of the problem. It will not avoid the death of millions – because they simply do not matter.” (Pulido, 2018, p. 128)
Ernstson and Swyngedouw (2019) termed the depoliticizing technocratic discourse that coexists with obscene capitalist accumulation and waste as the Anthropo-obscene (critiquing the totalizing banner of Anthropocene that homogenizes an undifferentiated humanity that does not exist).
A performance of diversion, delay, co-optation, and performativity without substance is repeated almost annually. Nonetheless, these are also spaces of opportunities to challenge the system, to utter necessary words for more people to hear, collectivize among young and old activists, learn from different positionalities, create new openings and possibilities of alliances – in other words, a repoliticization of climate instead of the depoliticized techno-economist utopias that never deliver.
আমরা কোথায় যাব, আমাদের কি ভবিষ্যৎ? আমরাকি হত্তছারা, পরিত্যক্ত? (Where will my people go, what future do we have? Must we remain abandoned, forsaken?) The disproportionate burden of climate damage is falling on formerly colonized and brutalized racialized communities in the developing world. We are still colonized, but this time through climate change, the development industry, and globalization. I feel an immense responsibility to do something. But no one is going to listen to someone like me, and even more importantly, more marginalized peoples, women and children, farmers and fisherfolk, writers and scholars. But we are all expected to be resilient because we have no choice.
Climate coloniality is perpetuated through global land and water grabs, REDD+ programs, neoliberal conservations projects, rare earth mineral mining, deforestation for growth, fossil fuel warfare, and new green revolutions for agriculture – which benefit a few while dispossessing larger numbers of historically-impoverished, often elsewhere.
I stop now, there is too much truth. You should read the article anyway :ecoanarchism_heart:

The cruelty and inhumanity is the point.

This is a short piece so doesn't have 2 crucial pts.

1) need to change underlying conditions that create the desperation for people to take risky journeys for an uncertain future.
2) the role the USA and other rich countries have played in creating those conditions.

I think that both Kremlin and ruzzian society during this invasion are going through five stages of grief - anger, denial, depression.

Anger phase started after their retreat from Kyiv. In this stage they leveled to the ground #Donbas (Mariupol, Popasna, Sievierodonetsk, Volnovakha and many others cities in region are in ruins), blew up #NordStream and started mobilization.

After failure, both military and diplomatic, russians moved to denial stage. In which they tried to destroy energy infrastructure of Ukraine with missiles and Iranian drones, and to capture #Bakhmut in meat attacks.

As for now, if consider #Girkin and #Prigozhin statements, and the behavior of the ruzzian horde in general, they moved into defense/depression stage. It looks like they gonna be depressed until West supplies Ukraine with fighter jets, or until russia runs out of money (which could happen faster if Western oil companies stops maintaining russian colonial oilfeilds)

After the final collapse of russian colonial expedition, the bargaining stage will start. There will be no acceptance stage (like never ever), russians will forget this invasion as they forgot unlucky (for them) WW1 or their failed colonial expedition to Afghanistan. But they will continue to celebrate their Victory over Germans, as they did yesterday 🙂 Still, acceptance stage is possible as a result of #decolonization of russian empire

"For many Māori modern health services lack recognition of taha wairua (the spiritual dimension). In a traditional Māori approach, the inclusion of the wairua, the role of the whānau (family) and the balance of the hinengaro (mind) are as important as the physical manifestations of illness."

To me it's more encouraging to see this on the Ministry of Health website than the Māori name, Manatū Hauora, which by itself is just tokenism.

@sleslie @Ammienoot One way to put it is that, compared with the #ADDIE model (which tends to dominate), it's a direct feedback loop with learners involved directly. Easy to explain in the case of public servants contributing to a course on procurement, for instance.
It also goes well with the #decolonization required for #EpistemicJustice. Instead of assessing people's needs based on your own knowledge system, you sit down and co-design.

He understands it wrong, because he skipped the Dostoevsky part of russian social contract. This part is about population living in shit so government can build more Greatness. russians are always politically engaged, as far as they need moral endorsement in their shitty lives. But the passive part is correct, and it works in same time, they are passive and engaged simultaneously. Mysterious orcish soul

As for anti-war movement, one of the russian imperial cornerstones is that enemies wants to tear their empire apart. It is widely used in russia as excuse to invade Ukraine (NATO is approaching imperial borders to tear down the empire). As far as all resources that russia trades out are extracted from russian colonies (russian heartland is just a swamp territories), they really terrified of possible #decolonization, and they don't even need Dostoevksy to justify this cornerstone. That's why russians always try to avoid any radical protest to not endanger their imperial integrity, and anti-war protest are radical. That's why trough out all the russian invasions, where most of them were the same meat grinders, they never had anti-war protests

So Mr. Anders did some research, that's a fact, but generally he is just exercising in #Westplaining

Today we’re celebrating the life of Micaela Bastidas, who in 1780 started an Inca uprising against the Spanish with her husband, Túpac Amaru II. One of her goals was to reestablish Indigenous women in social life and politics, which the Spanish had prevented. Among other roles, she was a key figure in supplying troops with the necessary money, food, clothing, and weapons.

“Our goal in this article is to remind readers what is unsettling about decolonization. Decolonization brings about the repatriation of Indigenous land and life; it is not a metaphor for other things we want to do to improve our societies and schools.”

Indigenous spaces have no desire to be void of other cultures.

It's not the Native way.

Nothing inherently wrong with being a white person of European descent. There are great people of all cultures, American/European included.

It's the colonizer culture that doesn't know how to be a guest, in equal coexistence or share.

Colonizer culture has to take everything, displace everything and control the whole world.

Hey @godpod, you're still using that imperialist language which refers to the citizens of the USA as «americans», as if the inhabitants of other countries in America did not exist.

Imperialist and arrogant language is not appropriate for the heavens!

“Avatar: The Way of Water” and its director are facing fresh scrutiny from Native audiences, some of whom have criticized the franchise for its “White savior” narrative, use of stereotypes and inadequate representation of Indigenous people.

“(Cameron) might be telling that story of colonization, but he’s telling it through the lens of a White male”

FACT: Cows are also not native to North America. Beef is not a part of pre-colonial or decolonized #Native #Indigenous cuisine.

The first cattle arrived in the Americas in 1525 at Vera Cruz, Mexico. The cattle were brought by Spaniards to the New World.

The first cows to arrive in what is now the United States came in 1624 at Plymouth Colony.

I’m hoping for any suggestions or examples of a #LandBack research assignment for undergraduates. Some issues: A) I’m white, none or very few of the students will identify as indigenous—so need structure to avoid saviorism; B) I want students to identify and gather details about land parcels that could be granted back to one of the Ohlone bands in the Bay Area, but unsure what details students should gather; (1 of 2) #decolonization #indigenous @histodons @sociology #AmericanStudies

Cont.: C) what should students *do* with the info; D) whether/how to include local tribal/band leaders and orgs; and E) preparatory/scaffolding the assignment (BA/Ohlone history?). If you’ve done something like this before with students, or have studied the non-metaphorical, literal decolonization movement, or are an indigenous person with a stake in this kind of thing, your input is welcome and needed.

“What matters today, the issue which blocks the horizon, is the need for a redistribution of wealth. Humanity will have to address this question, no matter how devastating the consequences may be.”
