True Story Part Two continues to educate audiences about the often-troubled past Indigenous people have experienced with colonial powers in Canada.
From the creation of the Indian Act through the residential school and sixties scoop eras, to the White Paper and the statement of regret from a Catholic pope, True Story doesn’t shy away from asking the question, is reconciliation even possible?

Many parallels, indie says, these two fledglings of $GGR and $NVVE can show how it's done to build hubs of geographically-localized electric scooter-driving communities that share shelter with the analog bicyclists.

"Install hubs of scooters (NO COPS) near the seedy bus and train stations, solving travel and shelter issues for the most long-term damaged humans amid climate change."
$TANH could be in charge of the sustainability measures, built in changing room, include emergency overnight shelter accommodations homeless folks that cannot afford the oppressive rent deltas and are stuck when bus service is off.
Do something better than bad feng shui -spiked benches like they do in NYC to keep so-called "riffraff" off _THEIR_ luxury commerce street.

Ground penetrating radar findings at former Beauval Indian Residential School | APTN News
Radar has discovered 93 unmarked graves, all of which are believed to be children and at least 14 believed to be infants.
"We have non First Nations priests and nuns who are walking freely who are rapists and murderers walking out there. There's a part that we face with as Indian people. If that was me .. If I did something 70 years ago, and they found that out, I'd have been thrown behind bars. We're calling on justice. And if the justice system doesn't do it, the gods justice will get to them. Because the hurt, pain suffering and anguish that they did to our young boys and girls is a sin." - Chief Bobby Cameron from the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (45:31)

What could computing have to do with colonialism, both in its legacy and as it still exists today? Off the top of my head, here are some very material, empirical questions which I think CS undergraduates should and would be interested in finding answers to:
UAINE (ndnviewpoint) @mahtowin1
The indigenous groups fighting against the quest for 'white gold'
"Our land is drying up and our water is polluted," says Nati Machaca, one of the protesters manning a roadblock in the village of Purmamarca, high in the Andes mountains.
Ms Machaca is a spokeswoman for the indigenous groups living in Jujuy, a province in northern Argentina.
Jujuy is located in what has become known as the "lithium triangle", a stretch of the Andes straddling the tri-border area between Argentina, Bolivia and Chile, which holds the world's biggest reserves of lithium."
"The metal is used to make rechargeable batteries for everything from smartphones to laptops."
"It has become especially sought after as electrical cars, which also use lithium in their batteries, are becoming increasingly popular.
Lithium extraction requires huge amounts of water - about two million litres per tonne.
And locals like Nati Machaca, who live off the land and raise cattle in this predominantly rural area, fear it is drying the soil and polluting the water.
"If this goes on, we will soon starve and become ill," she warns."
"The position of the more than 400 indigenous groups inhabiting these mountains is complicated by the fact that many lack legal titles to the land where they have lived for centuries - long before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in the 1500s.
"Back then it was all verbal agreements," she explains, "but there's no proof".
She and many like her, who have no legal documents to back up their claims to the land, could now face eviction under a controversial constitutional reform approved in June by the governor of Jujuy, Gerardo Morales."
""[Governor] Morales comes after the land because he knows it's where the lithium is," says Ms Machaca.
The new constitution also limits the right to protest, but that has not deterred the indigenous communities, who have blocked the roads to the lithium mines."
"Police were deployed to remove them, but the protesters say this made them more united and determined.
"We are not moving. The land is ours, the lithium belongs to us," they insisted."
"In total, there are 38 lithium mining projects in northern Argentina, of which three are already up and running.
Much of the lithium in this area is located beneath salt flats in the form of lithium brine.
In order to reach the underground deposits, companies first have to drill. The brine is then pumped to the surface into artificial ponds, where some of the liquid is allowed to evaporate before the lithium is extracted through a series of chemical processes.
Local communities warn that the impact on the environment of lithium mining is considerable, both because of the huge amounts of water the process requires and the air and water pollution the chemicals used in the extraction can cause."
But Néstor Jérez, chief of the Ocloya people, remains concerned about the impact current lithium mining is having and future projects could have."
"Indigenous groups like the Ocloya seek to live in harmony with Pachamama (Mother Earth), whom they worship in ceremonies."
And it is from her that Néstor Jérez says they draw the strength to oppose the mining projects: "She is the guarantor of life, so we will defend her whatever it takes."
"He is not swayed by the argument put forward by Ms Lucesoli, who says that lithium mining generates local employment, and that with it comes educational and training opportunities.
"Wealth is not only about the economic improvement of the inhabitants, but also about the improvement of the quality of life that will last for many generations," she says.
Feeling their concerns were not being addressed, the indigenous groups set off on a march to the capital, Buenos Aires, to make their demands heard by the national government.
The march, called "Malón de la Paz" (Raid for Peace), is modelled on similar indigenous protests held in 1946 and 2006."
"Those taking part in this third "Malón de la Paz" say they are determined not to give in until the constitutional reform backed by Governor Morales is revoked.
But they stress that their struggle is much wider than for the land they live on.
"Mining is harming biodiversity and aggravating the climate crisis," those marching to the capital said."
"But those manning the roadblocks in Jujuy and the many who marched to Buenos Aires insist they will not give up their resistance.
"This is not just for us: it's for the future generations and the entire humanity's well-being."

Today is Cadence Bank's deadline to decide whether to issue a $20 million loan for the construction of Cop City. Can you call Cadence at 662-680-2008, and demand them to REJECT THE LOAN?
Cadence Bank has previously financed Cop City, but rumor has it they are unsure if the project is still viable. They know when Cop City is stopped, the Atlanta Police Foundation will likely go bankrupt and default on all their loans. It's time to go all out to demand Cadence Bank deny the loan, which has simply become too risky.
Can you make a call to Cadence Bank and tell them to deny their risky $20 million loan for Cop City? It takes 1 minute: 662-680-2008
More details in the flyer below, from Honor The Earth. Call 662-680-2008, and boost this post to your networks so we can get more calls in today!
I'm thinking about a story/media to explain and antithesize the legacy of Christian missions and colonial culture — from present day, back to the roots of universalist religion missions and place-based religious cultures, and returning to the present *dis-placed* world we live in to explore we go from here. Can you recommend any people who would be good to collaborate on this? Anybody interested in collaborating or thinking through this together? (A big influence was the historical analysis around "God is Red" on The Red Nation podcast with @NickEstes and @NewAmauta: https://directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/show/therednation/id/22814192, as well as Vine Deloria Jr's "The World We Used to Live In", which led me to that podcast episode)

As an excellent example, the convergence of an XR chapter with a local squatters movement. The climate activists recognizing the synergy of place-based "generative refusal" (Leanne Simpson) with the squatters, and getting involved in place-based resistance and a strategic material intervention to change the system in that city. Same story with Atlanta and #StopCopCity ...
... whose work has resulted in hundreds of people — including the middle class people and workers, who seem so elusive to other climate movements — getting involved in mass protest and advocating abolitionist and ecological perspectives to local government. Example here, from a firefighter in Atlanta talking abolition perspectives to the government:
"If you listen to any of the #StopCopCity public comment, you can hear how deeply abolitionist frameworks have taken root––so many people, whether identifying as abolitionists or not, articulated a vision of safety dependent on resources and relationships, rather than policing." — @micahinatl

Happy Birthday, Frantz Fanon
"As for the man who first identified Running Eagle, Will Roscoe, you can see how unbiased his research approach is from his latest book which...er..reveals how Jesus and the disciples were all part of a gay shamanic cult. It makes Dan Brown's books seem authoritative."
Malcolm Clark @TwisterFilm
"It's a sad reflection of our culture that we allow a bullying lobby to rewrite Running Eagle's history and that of her innovative people using lame ideas concocted and popularised by two creepy white guys; Hay and Williams, one of whom was later jailed for paedophilia."
This substack is clearly not written by an Indigenous person and fails to take into account the fact that the Residential school system in tandem with the concept of Manifest Destiny in the United States taught many tribes to hate and fear homosexuality in line with Christian teaching. Prior to contact, homosexuality was accepted across North America, but homosexuals were equal tribal members. They were not mystical sacred beings with psychic powers. They were neither above or below anyone else in the tribe. Non-Natives on the left and the right miss one of the most fundamental precepts of Indigenous spiritual beliefs when discussing Indigenous attitudes towards those who are different - Everyone is EQUAL in the circle. No one is above. No one is below. No one is higher. No one is lower.
To this date, no one has ever been able to find any legitimate reference to "two spirit" people from legitimate hereditary Indigenous elders or from Native scholars who speak and understand their Native language and who have a solid, legitimate connection to a federally recognized tribe. Not one legitimate Indigenous leader will claim this myth. Meanwhile Native youth who have lost their ties to their communities are being brainwashed into thinking that this Settler invention to legitimize sex between adult males and children is part of their culture. This is spiritual rape.
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Indigenous scholars and activists worked hard to expose the myth of the Berdache that white racist and homophobic anthropologists created. AIM held many protests at Universities around the US and Canada exposing the Berdache myth as pure Settler fiction. Many Indigenous activists and scholars spoke out about the Berdache myth, but the white anthropologists were always painted as the "authorities" on Indigenous culture, never the Indigenous elders who kept knowledge of their culture through storytelling in the oral tradition.
In the 1990s, William Roscoe, a white gay anthropologist, lifted a lot of the objectionable work of non-Native anthropologists regarding the Berdache and re-branded it as his "Two Spirit" nonsense. Harry Hay, controversial for his support of NAMBLA, joined forces with Roscoe in promoting the myth. They even dared to try to make the homosexual into a sacred being with magical powers so that white gay men with pedophilic urges could feel validated.
Gender Ideology started with racist colonial cultural mis-appropriation of Indigenous cultural and spiritual beliefs. No one in the radical feminist camp cried out until it branched out to mis-appropriate all of womanhood. The human right of the oppressed groups involved have never been taken into consideration when it comes to insane drive to accept, legitimize and validate all forms of male sexual depravity.
It's not surprising that Trans Rights Advocates are exploiting Running Eagle or Pitamakan, another strong Indigenous woman who cannot speak for herself. She is being labeled as "Two Spirit" for simply saying she would be "no man's slave." The Gender ideologists want to re-write history and define any woman who does not submit unconditionally to men as trans or "two spirit" or born in the wrong body. Running Eagle or Pitamakan is the next candidate to be being transed and exploited to further the sexual agenda of the white male settler. She is starting to be referred to as "the Blackfeet Joan of Arc" by outsiders. This is being done not to honour the strength and resilience of Indigenous women, but so that depraved men who are rightfully outcasts from their society for their sexual crimes against children can feel better about themselves.
The racist colonial historical revisionism must end. Indigenous people must be allowed to tell our own stories about how strong and powerful our women have always been without the misogynist settlers silencing our voices to proclaim that all our strong women never existed thereby erasing our strongest, most powerful women role models by claiming that if they were strong, they must really not have been women at all.

@enmodo if you understand that racism is the norm, not something that only „bad“ people do that’s the exact same thing then. That’s why I talk about the dominating classes, not MAGA in particular. I still think it’s not something to criticize the subaltern for, they probabely can say whatever they want, it won’t be heard by the dominant classes. „Can the subaltern speak?“ is the fundamental question to be asked, and we’ll I‘d say No but it’s definitely not their fault. #decolonize #anarchism

Hi. I’m Sean (he/him) 👋
I’m married and live in Missouri, USA.
Why do we use some untranslated Indigenous proper names (Nezahualcoyotl) but translate other names (Sitting Bull)?
Part of me thinks we should use both. The original names recognize the Indigenous language and the translated name articulates a deeper meaning. So it would be Nezahualcoyotl Coyote with a Fasting Collar and Tȟatȟáŋka Íyotake Sitting Bull.
Mexihco Place in the Navel of the Moon sounds pretty good too.
In addition to #BlackMastodon needing strong political currents based in #IntersectionalFeminism, #antifascism, #antiauthoritarianism, #Abolition, #antinationalism, and #anticapitalism, we also need to build #solidarity with and support the creation of #indigenousmastodon as well. We only win if we fight together! ✊🏾🔥
TL:DR: I'm mostly posting this intro to connect with other Black and BIPOC Anarchists or Anti-authoritarians. Hit me up! :sparkles_panafrican: :Fire_Panafrican:
My partner and I are currently working on a docuseries, @Elememts_of_MA, about the origins, structures, healing ways, and logistics of mutual aid-based organizing. The project isn't exclusively profiling anarchist groups, but it is deeply anti-authoritarian - we're especially staying away from charismatic leaders and celeb "activist" types.
The whole thing is independent - no producers; everything is out of pocket. We've been living out of a van we converted so we could make this happen; which has been amazing. We've been on the road since May Day this year, and have already filmed some amazing interviews as far north as Montreal and as far south as Puerto Rico.
However, I'm personally struggling to find Black organizations or collectives that aren't MLM, AADOS, authoritarian, Black Capitalist, nonprofit style groups. Reading and theory groups or media collectives are rad, but I'm really looking for groups that're doing interesting work on the ground (*not food distro*) from an anti-state-nationalist analysis.
Lorenzo and JoNina Irvin will appear in the film, among other radical Black people like Jessica Gordon Nembhard, The Northeast Action Collective in Houston, and Arm the Girls in Oakland. So, I'm not at a complete loss.
But, please send me all the rad groups of Black people you know that are creating long-term, democratic, mutual aid projects in their communities. They do not need to identify as anarchist, but they *cannot* be down with the nation state and have to be doing more than food distro.
Thanks a ton, y'all.
Beyond all that, I'm also really interested in connecting with people to write Star Wars analysis and fan-fiction. I think the galaxy far, far away is an interesting canvas to explore the tensions of autonomous world building vs authoritarian revolutionary movements. If I lived in that universe, I'd no doubt be getting into arguments with the Rebel Alliance.
Thanks for reading this long-winded post.
