castaspersions asked: Hello! I am a follower of your blog & love it; my father is Mohawk, my mother is white, & most of my youth wasn't spent discussing my heritage. I have recently joined an Indigenous Solidarity group that is comprised mainly of well-meaning white people, & a few of their proposals leave me feeling uncomfortable. I respect your insight based on what I've read on your blog...
Adoption as Cultural Annihilation - ICTMN.com →
adailyriot: If you’ve heard the term 60s scoop and thought it had something to do with ice-cream in ye olden days, I’m here to enlighten you. I prefer the term stolen generations, because the scooping I’m about to discuss didn’t end in the ’60s, and arguably still goes on today. I am referring to the wholesale removal of aboriginal children from their families. In the mid ’60s, the federal and...
Too busy to answer asks right now, my apologies.
charge-into-the-sun replied to your post: That time in between the times you say, “I’m never… hahaha you two Alberta girls can drink - lemme tell you lol We were a little disappointed we didn’t get into a fight, but it was for the best. :P Why did I think tequila shots were a good idea?

Do you ever think about how weird butter is?
digatisdi: I mean, for all intents and purposes, it’s pulverised cream. It’s literally milk that got punched repeatedly until it hardened. I mean that’s just weird. In Cree it’s: tohtôsâpôwipimiy. Nipple-liquid grease. And yes. It’s weird.
Anonymous asked: I thought you came off as hostile in everything you said, about any subject, so I never followed you. But I frequent your Tumblr ofter. I recently came across your actual domain name website, and now I'm able to get a better perspective on the person you are, and that you are just a strong-willed woman who doesn't back down when faced with bullshit. I think Tumblr is an unhealthy place,...

ancient-iv0ry asked: the picture i posted on MY blog, was not racist? it was me and my friend dressing up, it was taken like 3/4 months ago i found it on my laptop and decided to post it, it was NOT made to be racist or whatever people clearly took it the wrong way, i love native americans and im ordering a headdress soon, reblogging/retagging my picture will not make me take it down? i love that picture
The Native American tag is getting wicked stupid...
Hi. You. The one whining about how oppressed you are because we don’t want to see your stupid dreamcatcher tattoo or your idiotic ‘headdress’. You, the one crying and asking, “gosh don’t you have other things to worry about?” Yeah. We do. But we can’t talk about those things when you clog up the Native American tag with your absolutely idiotic...
