This, I AM SO DONE WITH YOUR HONOR AMERICAN SPORTS! LIKE YOU’R DONE, WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE!?

Ah College Ball Season, please continue to add ammo to the deletion of Native American mascots, get out of here with your “HONOR”
OSU fans not only make fun of the Trail of Tears, but hey, what about Wounded Knee? #NotYourMascot

One of the Top Comments, Why do I read these again…”Not a fan of OSU but I pretty sure that they are not referring to the actual trail of tears. They are referring to FSU crying all the way back to Florida. People need to stop being so emotional and jump on every single thing they see.”

This weekend has marked a peak in my tolerance of this mockery. I have a feeling this football season will bring title waves to this debate. Again, continue to write your mascots and logos out of history American Sports!

Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.

Justice for all Indigenous Women! by Jessica Sabogal | Montréal

1 in 3 Native American women are raped within their lifetime, and are at extreme risk of violence from non-native (white) men. x x x

Despite push from the UN for a national inquiry, Canada continues to largely ignore the violence against Native Women. x

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

from America is Not For Black People

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

Yesterday, the Lummi Nation’s epic Totem Pole journey to raise awareness of the coal export terminals, coal mining, and Bakken/Tar sands oil exports came to Seattle. The pole will travel 6,000 miles starting from South Dakota to the Tar Sands stopping in impacted tribal and non-tribal communities along the way. Seattle marked its halfway point.

Master carver Jewell James (Lummi) reminded us all that now is the time for us to Warrior in protection of Mother Earth.
