The Fox Shake by thrumyeye

cleaned up my mummified opossum pal

I also think about how disgusting it is when I see reclaiming Taíno individuals attempting to play into this idea that “Taíno were the first colonized group, we had it the worst”, and adding into anti-blackness and acting as if we were the only existing tribe ever before anyone else. This is colonized thinking. This is violence and this is alienating black history, black natives, and everyone that never gets as embraced as white-passing natives. This needs to stop.


crises of identity by individuals are often mitigated by serving their communities. this in turn staves off the same for the community. this is something pretendians will never understand: indigeneity is first and foremost community.
