#tbt Exactly one year ago today. Even with sovereignty, the US continues to abuse our indigenous populations by not prosecuting the non-indigenous folk that wrong them. When harm is carried out upon them, the FBI is supposed to step in to help and very often don’t. This was another major concern with the creation of the DAPL— non-indigenous folk coming in to harass and harm them without repercussion. Remember #NoDAPL and exactly one year ago today indigenous folk put their bodies on the frontlines in a country that treats them for decoration, mascots, and the premise of a bullshit holiday.

I stand with all the indigenous people of turtle island today, I ask that you all remember the genocide that is literally still taking place while we celebrate around a table with our loved ones. Be grateful everyday for the family and friends we are blessed to have. Last Year I celebrated Thanksgiving on a frontline in Standing Rock days after hundreds of WaterProtectors were shot, gassed, watercannoned, arrested and literally lost limbs protecting the water we are all supposedly so grateful for. Breaking bread with relatives and healing as a collective together in Oceti Last year was a Miracle. We are Miracles. Today take time to pay your respects to the Indigenous Peoples who died so you could eat and live freely on their bones. At this moment a pipeline called LINE 3 is being illegally built through native lands. Please speak out, join hands with the incredible humans protecting this land as they always have, stop the never ending genocide and say NO to Line 3. Im here standing on Tongva / Chumash land today in solidarity with my relatives across Turtle Island remembering their ancestral trauma today. I love you all and am forever grateful we are family. to all my colonized american ohana, I love you, thank you for remembering the truth and stepping forward to stop this perpetuated trauma. United we rise. Love Wins. #indigenouspeoplesday #thanksgiving #standingrock #NOKXL #NODAPL #NOLINE3 #honortheearth #ocetioyate #decolonizeyourmind #empoweryourself #showupinagoodway #waterprotector

Repost @shewillresist by @media.repost: This need to go viral. • Repost from @feminists_.for._equality using @RepostRegramApp - ❌TRIGGER WARNING: g*nocide, r*pe, t*rture, murder, ab*se and s*icide mentions❌ I'd like to see this (or something like this) going around on Thanksgiving. This community NEVER talks about Native issues so if we're going to be observing a holiday that commemorates their genocide, we might as well address some of their issues. And let it be known this is the TIP of the iceberg. Native issues extend far beyond the ones mentioned here. Picture Description: "Native women are 2.5 times more likely to be raped than any other woman of any other race. On some reservations, Native women are killed at 10 times the national average. 84% of Native women have suffered abuse and 97% of that abuse is committed by non-Natives. Native youth commit suicide nearly twice the national average and are 3 times more likely to have from PTSD. Natives face the highest rate of police brutality of any other race - Natives aged 20 to 40 were 3 to 5 times more likely to be killed by the police compared to the percentage of their population. Natives at Standing Rock were shot with rubber bullets, terrorized with dogs, met with military force, shot with water cannons in freezing temperatures, arrested and put in dog crates, and even killed for defending their land from a dangerous pipeline that was rerouted through their land after Bismarck's 92% white residents denied it, afraid it would leak." #feminist #feminism #feminists #equalist #womanist #womanism #egalitarian #egalitarianism #antifem #antifeminist #intersectional #intersectionalfeminism #sjw #leftist #whyineedfeminism #ineedfeminismbecause #activist #activism #equality #equalityforall #liberal #nativeamerican #nodapl #dapl #fuckthanksgiving #thanksgiving #justiceforjasonpero

#Rep#Repost @dharmayogasyracuse (@get_repost) ・・・ #Repost @andreiram1 (@get_repost) ・・・ Thanksgiving day? Look carefully at the face of this Original American elder. Be thankful for every sorrow his expression lines hold. The unbearable sorrow of having violently lost all that can bring dignity & realization to a human-being. His beloved ones, his way of living, his spiritual freedom and the Land one belongs to. Land, never to be ignorantly perceived as property. Certainly the most atrocious violation to all Human Rights in History and the beginning of the current brutal destruction of Mother Nature by the “civilized” project. What kind of reaction and sanctions would be apply to such atrocity by today’s standards? It’s Time not just to be grateful but also to repent, to repair and to finally integrate the Native Original American Heritage to the current US identity. This integration is the medicine to heal the American Soul and to finally recognize The Real American Root. One that is not foreigner, neither bonded to an economical model or its branding-s. It’s time to disavow the pseudo-cultural American identity based on mere consumerism and economical freedom. It’s time to realize what is To Be American and what is True Freedom! It’s time for Spiritual liberation and for American Supreme Self-realization. We are Still Here & Still Strong! Still claiming respect for the American Land, for its residents-ALL & for The Great Spirit! #andreiram #andreiramyoga #nativeamerican #thaksgiving #stillhere #usa #american #selfrealization #realamerican #spiritual #spiritually #truth #nodapl @nod@nodapl_save_the_water @nodapl

Just a reminder that thanksgiving is a bullshit holiday that pushes a narrative which is untrue. The land we are on and the food that comes from it all belongs to the indigenous people. It is their sacred land that settlers murdered them to steal. So while we're all around our dinner tables tonight trying to not get into a fight with our racist and xenophobic families remember those who were brutally murdered so you could do that. I'll hex anyone's turkey that doesn't honor them #nothanks #NativeLand #indigenousresistance #nodapl #fuckcolonialism #fuckthanksgiving #native #resist #wearestillhere #honor #indigenouslivesmatter #res#respectland #stolenland #respect #intersectionality #unite #punchpilgrims #nobannowallonstolenland #witch #hexyourturkey

On this day last year, Native Americans at Standing Rock were being shot with rubber bullets by police and private security, and dispersed using water cannons in freezing temperatures, all in an effort protect their drinking water. This year, on the US holiday of Thanksgiving, they are cleaning up a 200,000 gallon oil spill on a South Dakota reservation. #StandingRock #KeystoneXL #NoDAPL #WaterIsLife
