THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.




Leaving in a little bit to go see a local theater showing of The Last Unicorn, and the author of the book is going to be there!~ I’m all dressed up real purdy, and I’m bringing my copy of the book along in case I can get it signed~ Several of my friends are going to be there too, and some of us are dressing up in lolita for the occasion~

omfg this was bound to happen i just KNEW IT

pissphobia:

reminder to unfollow me if u think its possible to be racist against white people, sexist against men, “reverse-ableist”, cisphobic, or heterophobic

unfollow me if u think dysphoria is needed to be trans, transness is a medical condition/mental disorder, nb people/gender variant people are “transtrenders”, and new gender labels and neopronouns hurt the trans community

also unfollow me if you think autism needs a cure or support autism speaks

Is funny when doctors and other peeps act like my problem is that I’m obsessed w/ my disability. Um no. You have it backwards. The problem is I HAVE to be cuz it is a constant problem.

I’m deaf. About 25 years ago, I was working for a little while as a classroom aide at a program that worked with deaf children with multiple disabilities. All the teachers and other classroom aides were hearing, but they all could sign.  Not at native signing level, but enough to carry on a basic conversation.

So, one evening, all us adults bring all the kids to a special one-night camping trip. All the kids are put to sleep, which frees up the adults to get into a circle and have some fun to ourselves for a while. People start talking, except they were forgetting to sign.  So I reminded them to please sign so I could understand them.  One of them told me that, no, they weren’t going to sign because this was our night to have fun and not have to think about communication.

So no one signed all night. They talked, they laughed, they had fun. I sat, feeling lost and cut off and betrayed. I remember wishing I had had the nerve to say, “No, what you mean is, you want a night in which everyone EXCEPT ME gets to not think about communication.”

I think sometimes when non-disabled people insist that we are too obsessed with our disability, what they REALLY mean is, “I wish you would stop reminding me that I have a shared responsibility as a fellow member of society to proactively ensure that we all have an opportunity to be engaged in society.  I wish you would just pretend to not have a disability so I can pretend that I don’t have to do anything to enable you to do the same things the rest of us are doing.”

The luxury of not needing to think about disability in a society that is designed to lock us on the cold outside is a non-disabled privilege.

 You make the THREE IN THE MORNING DRESS! 

It is so fancy. You cannot imagine wearing it on anything other than super special occasions. Not to mention you’ll freeze your ass off in this thing!

I’m so, super glad I finally got photos of the full dress! Jade is one of my favourite characters, and the 3am dress is one my favourite outfits!!

Last post! Botanic Garden trip 7/7. Check out my tag for more~


But let’s talk about this fountain for a minute. This is the type of design for a fountain I would expect in a Solarpunk world!

1) I can imagine the mosaics easily being solar panels; and, 2) the surface of the fountain is rugged. Why is this important in Solarpunk, you ask? Well, as someone in the Solarpunk tag pointed out, this type of world would/should have bees kept in its cities! The pebbly texture of this fountain provides PERFECT access for bees to drink. The bf scared them off while taking the photos but I promise you there were TONS of bees on this fountain. It is important for bees to keep hydrated while doing their thing and this is just such an ideal water source for them!

My mom has a bunch of fountains in her garden but I always see the girls struggling to land safely enough to get a drink, but not get wet. The surface of this fountain allows them to perch on top of the taller pebbles while the water doesn’t flow everywhere. Plus, the lip of the bowls is so big that it is less likely they’d be hit by an errant drop!

I imagine a Solarpunk world with lots of fountains around the city with textures like this so everybody can enjoy them, not just big things like people, birds, puppies, raccoons, etc.

:D~~~

Some more solar punk astronaut to cap off the night! Got inspired by a notion someone reblogged with my original drawing, decided to explore that idea some!
