This new Australian anti micro-aggressions ad highlights the kind of racism indigenous Australians face…all day, every day. It’s a difficult ad to watch, especially if you’re used to this kind of microaggression yourself.

As a Mi’kmaq women, I am so proud of my people standing up against the destruction of our earth. Please join us in solidarity, mother earth needs us.
What a powerful image.
So this is a pretty long article, FUSE Magazine gave me the chance to really let ‘er go word-wise. However, if you’ve ever wondered why Indigenous people feel that language is SO important, this article might help you understand the issue. The article originally appeared in an apocalypse-themed issue. I chose to refute the idea that Indigenous peoples are facing an apocalypse in the ‘traditional’ sense of “about-to-die-off”.

Dear British Museum, Musée du Louvre, and Pergamon Museum, please return my heritage.

Not to mention The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Natural History, etc.
Wow, this is a gorgeous photo, actually. I feel so uncomfortable in every “native art” exhibit of most museums. I was just in the Montreal Musée de Beaux Arts yesterday and found a Kent Monkman painting I had never seen before, which is what I’m talkin’ about as far as native art in museums. Support the artists…not the removal of priceless heritage artifacts.
