I am 20 years old, Two-Spirit, street medic organizer for an Indigenous street medic collective. I was among the arrested during ceremony at the Red Lake Treaty camp.
On Friday July 23rd I was in sacred ceremony and peaceful prayer with many others on treaty land as protected by our Article 6 and 1st amendment rights. Ceremony started at dawn, and by noon riot police had surrounded those in prayer on all sides. I saw no riot, I saw no disturbance of peace, what I saw was water protectors from all walks of life and from all over coming together to pray for our Mother Earth, for the water, for the future of all of the Creators creatures. Despite this, I watched as law enforcement violently grabbed and detained those dear to my heart and then eventually myself as well. We sat in jail for 4 days, many of us denied medical treatment, medication, changes of clothes, and menstrual products. During and after my arrest I was suffering from heat exhaustion, as well as complications from being denied my medication for nearly two days. For two days I was violently ill, unable to keep even water in my stomach without vomiting. I attempted to explain that with my pre-existing health conditions as well as heat exhaustion that I needed to be taken to a hospital or be seen by medical professionals. I had my basic vitals taken, was given some tums, which I was later made to pay for, and told to lay down and drink water. Police showed a blatant disregard for constitutional law, human life, and Mother Earth, a disregard that will not stop with reform, not with new laws or optional standards. The police are in Enbridge鈥檚 pocket too. It will not stop until police are abolished and Enbridge stops violating the land, water, and people. Today it is us, tomorrow it will be you. Will you stand by and watch?
If you feel called to, please consider donating to my G*F*ndM* so I can continue doing work to protect our waters and Mother Earth

It's Indigenous People's day so I thought I'd share something about being Ojibwe 馃尶
We are a tribe that comes from Canada but migrated south for food. And now there, we practice rice harvesting (although technically it's not rice).
We do so in a way that doesn't hurt the plants and allows them to continue growing. We call it manoomin and it's delicious. There are other ways to do so now with modern technology but this keeps tradition alive which is very important to preserving our culture.
It's sold out almost everywhere rn but I fully suggest you de-colonize your plate by trying some if you ever get the chance! Most people don't know this but we've been eating maple syrup and maple sugar forever and a lil syrup on this with blueberries is traditional and amazing.

A reminder that celebrating marginalized people鈥檚 pride and joy is an amazing act of activism and resistance!!
Vibing to Palestinian music and wearing your kuffiyah with pride, is an act of resistance.
Celebrating black scientists, engineers, politicians, historians, business owners, writers, artists, is resistance
Pride parades and celebrations are resistance
Celebrating Eid and going shopping for Eid clothes and new hijabs, in a non Muslim country is resistance
Observing Jewish holidays during rising antisemitism is an act of resistance.
Indigenous people celebrating their culture, dancing, beading/making art, attending ceremonies, going to pow wows, is resistance
Asians celebrating their culture and heritage is an act of resistance.
Adoptees remembering and honoring their birth family and culture, is resistance
Taking care of yourself during a bad mental health episode is resistance!!
Activism does not always have to be focused on pain and grief. Celebrate your whole being, and everything that make you, you.

Because there鈥檚 been a /lot/ of drama in online Native spaces lately:
> we love and accept reconnecting Natives on this account
> we do not shame ANYONE鈥檚 regalia for anything here
> whether you鈥檙e white and Indigenous or Black and Indigenous, you鈥檙e still Indigenous and we do not discriminate against our cousins here
Hopefully I made all that clear and we can have a good time.
Also this should go without saying; but if you鈥檙e not Indigenous, don鈥檛 bother arguing with me about this because this absolutely isn鈥檛 your place. 鉁岎煆解湆馃徑

I'm watching The Walking Dead, and all I can think about is that if the show was just indigenous or had a indigenous lead that it would be them just thriving and sometimes killing walkers like to clean them up you know.

Not so friendly reminder that cultural appropriation is a thing; and it鈥檚 disrespectful.
If a certain group of people have told you repeatedly that it would be disrespectful for you to do something, then it鈥檚 disrespectful. There鈥檚 no 鈥渁ppreciation鈥 for that culture whatsoever if you can鈥檛 even respect the people. Imagine, I walk into your house and you tell me not to touch your food because your family is starving. But I say some shit like,鈥漮k. Well. I鈥檓 only appreciating what you do have. I mean, I have food at home. But yours looks good too鈥 and I eat your fucking food. I鈥檇 be a piece of shit, would I not ?
Look at it this way, so I鈥檓 Indigenous. We have certain medicines that are sacred, like white sage.
I constantly see so much racism and disrespect within the spiritual community (I鈥檓 side-eying the FUCK outta y鈥檃ll wiccans rn). White sage is a sacred medicine that not only are y鈥檃ll using incorrectly, but it is also in danger of going extinct due to the theft and overharvesting of it.
And before you get your white tears flowing about some 鈥渂ut we鈥檙e all human!鈥 , the reason why that鈥檚 not a good enough excuse to take shit that doesn鈥檛 belong to you is because I am 23-years-old. I can only say a few words in my language. I don鈥檛 know many of our traditions, or much about our culture due to colonization.
Up until 1976 (my MOTHER was very much alive at this time), it was ILLEGAL for Indigenous people to partake in our culture. Our ancestors and loved ones couldn鈥檛 even speak our languages without being jailed, beaten, or worse. After it was made legal again, the residential schools were still running to make sure they abuse the culture out of Indigenous children. Even today, our people (especially our women) are going missing and being murdered. Nothing is being done about that.
And before you say,鈥滲ut /I鈥檓/ not responsible for-鈥 imma stop you right there because if you are doing nothing for our community, then you are only benefiting from and contributing to colonization.
So, I ask you, (white people especially) how you can feel so entitled to further steal from us while benefiting from our destruction ? Whether you stole our children and murdered our women or not, if you have not helped our community in any way, shape, or form (and I don鈥檛 mean you share a couple MMIW posts and call it a day, I mean you actually put work in) then you are only furthering our hardships. If that鈥檚 the case, how do you have a right to use our things ?

Yesterday was National MMIWG2S Awareness Day. No More Stolen Sisters. In many Native nations, red is known to be the only color spirits see. I wore red in hopes of calling back the missing spirits of our women, children, and two spirit people.
