name one native american intellectual off the top of your head, name one native american actor or actress off the top of your head, name one native american senator, one native american news anchor, or an author or a tv personality or a singer or a poet or a comedian, name a single native american teacher you’ve had, can you? probably not 

ok so now think of one native american cartoon character you know of or a sports team relating to native americans whether it’s their actual name or their team logo, or a town you live in or near with a “native” name bet a lot of these things came to you right away i bet you didn’t even have to think 

needing native representation in media, education and government are not decoy issues, the commercialization and appropriation of native cultures are not decoy issues, the lack of native representation is institutional oppression at work 

White people specifically need to reblog this, I don’t CARE if it makes you uncomfortable–that’s the point. Listen to Native voices about Native issues PLEASE

White people specifically need to reblog this

I’m white and this is a really good reminder to add to posts like these. They do make white people uncomfortable, they need to, but that also makes them easier to scroll past (the ”this really isn’t about me” narrative). 

As a white person, sometimes I need a reminder that these are the posts I need to be reading and the ones I need to be using my white privilege to spread.

So yeah, white people specifically need to reblog.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
