The image of the eagle on the nopal cactus represents the foundation of Mexico-Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Mexica or Aztecs, for this was the sign promised by Huitzilopochtli to indicate the site where they should build their city. This symbol appears with variations in different colonial sources. The eagle can have a serpent or a small bird represented in its beak, or it can be empty.
This prehispanic symbol was reused during the Independence war, as an emblem of the people of America who sought identity with their ancient heritage as part of their liberation process. During the 19t century its use was standardized as the eagle and the serpent still used to this day.

Racism/appropriation of indigenous ppl is RAMPANT in the furry community so let me say some things:
STOP calling ur characters w*nd*g*s. You don鈥檛 even have to change the design, just stop calling them that. Call them like. Skull deer or some shit there is no reason for you to be using that word.
Stop using 鈥渟pirit animal鈥 in referral to ur fursona. This is obvious idk why it even needs to be said.
Stop making 鈥渢wo wolves inside you鈥 jokes. The 鈥渢wo wolves inside you鈥 is in reference to a racist made up native proverb from a white dude.
You aren鈥檛 appreciating cultures by doing things we tell u to stop. If you want to appreciate: buy from indigenous ppl, respectfully learn about cultures, listen to native people, and DON鈥橳 MAKE EXCUSES.

It has come to my attention that there are people that don't know about the horrors of residential schools and why we're canceling the fourth of july so I'll explain to the best of my ability.
Residential schools were institutions in which native children were held captive under the guise of educating them. These children were stolen away from their families and the goal was to "kill the indian, save the man" by eradicating native culture from these children's lives. They were forced to cut their hair, they were not allowed to speak in their native tongue nor leave to see their families. They were kept in poor living conditions conducive to illness and were punished harshly. Many children died at residential schools and their culture was stolen from them. It wasn't until 1996 when the last residential school was closed.
Tumblr media
Earlier this year a mass grave was found on the grounds of kamloops residential school, 215 bodies were discovered, some of the children as young as three. These children were stolen from their homes and never returned. There has been a call for residential schools to be searched and the children lost to residential schools to be mourned. This is happening in both canada and the united states and protests will be held on canada day and the fourth of july. To show your support you can wear orange and spread awareness.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
If you can, find a protest near you and let these children's voices be heard. Thousands of innocent children were kidnapped and killed then thrown into unmarked graves. Their lives must be honored and mourned.
Remember that the fourth of july did not mark freedom for everyone.

Osage Nation, the American Indian tribe whose ancestral domain included much of Oklahoma, said in a statement that the sale was 鈥渢ruly heartbreaking鈥.
鈥淥ur ancestors lived in this area for 1,300 years,鈥 the statement read. 鈥淭his was our land. We have hundreds of thousands of our ancestors buried throughout Missouri and Illinois, including Picture Cave.鈥
The bidder, who sought anonymity, bought the Picture Cave along with 43 acres of hilly property surrounding it near the town of Warrenton in Missouri, said Bryan Laughlin, the director of Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers.
Carol Diaz-Granados and her husband James Duncan, who spent 20 years researching the cave and wrote a book about it, also opposed the auction.
鈥淎uctioning off a sacred American Indian site truly sends the wrong message,鈥 Ms Diaz-Granados, a research associate at Washington University in St Louis said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 like auctioning off the Sistine Chapel.鈥
if this was Hobby Lobby, the Mormon church, or some weird libertarian ghoul treating this like the newest addition to their private collection, there should be fucking bodies
how exactly do you auction off priceless cultural heritage and it just ends up going to some random guy
who actually benefits from this
absolute travesty

You can help give land back RIGHT NOW!
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
These are stunning designs by Wenatchi Wear which is an Indigenous owned business for stickers mugs, tanks, hoodies, t shirts and just generally sicc clothes.
What's more sicc than that is the go fund me run by the owner of Wenatchi Wear!
This is an opportunity for the Wenatchi tribe to buy back some of their ancestral lands.
Tumblr media
Why is this so FUCKING important?
The current reservation is the Colville Confederated Tribe reservation which is a conglomerate of TWELVE tribes. (This alone is a disgusting violation of so many treaties and some day I'll have words about what it did to my family) More importantly right now is that the Wenatchi is a non-federally recognized tribe!!! This has many implications for the preservation of their culture but also limits their access to the resources both monetarily AND on the the lands they had treaty rights to that are part of their ancestral lands. This land purchase would put many Wenatchi people back on their ancestral lands and also funds a community center so their tribe has space to practice heal and grow their community and culture.
PLEASE DONATE TO THE GO FUND ME IF YOU CAN
Their venmo is Wenatchi_LandBack
