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”.
By the way, featured in the article is Vincent Medina, whose tumblr blog you can find here: http://ohlone.tumblr.com/
