Happy 36th Birthday Roger Federer - 8 August 2017

In you I found someone to make this sport more meaningful, thank you for extending to me a way to feel part of something bigger. By witnessing you play, I can now somehow be certain that the miraculous exists.

I’d be a lesser person without knowing the passion I feel for a complete stranger.

National Aboriginal Day is coming up soon (June 21) and I can’t wait to see all of you on here! Here are some suggestions for what you can post on this day:

1. Selfies / Photographs of yourself, whether it’s casual or in regalia or something else (sports uniform, cosplay, graduation cap and gown, etc)

2. Photographs of family events, ceremonies, powwows, celebrations, etc.

3. Video of powwows, celebrations, etc.

4. Photosets/gifsets about your favorite Indigenous / Aboriginal actors, writers, poets, artists, etc.

5. Poems, essays, songs, stories, or personal accounts about being Indigenous / Aboriginal

6. Art, drawings, paintings, mood boards, photomanipulation, any kind of visual media that inspires you. 

And more! This is a means of celebrating who we are and where we come from.

And of course, this means ALL Indigenous and Aboriginal people. We are all in this together. Let’s show them what we’re made of!

Future Events!

Hello everyone!

I want to thank everybody again for participating in National Aboriginal Day. It was a great, positive experience and it was wonderful to see everybody. Since it was such a success, I looked ahead to see if there was anything else we could celebrate in the near future. 

Of course along the way, I saw that there were some less than stellar events that most Natives don’t look forward to. Maybe another day of selfies, stories, pictures, art, and support would help get us all through those harder days.

“NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.”

World Indigenous Peoples Day
Wednesday, 9 August

Indigenous Peoples Day (California)
Friday, 22 September

Indigenous Peoples’ Day (USA)‎: ‎
Monday October 9, 2017 (FOR THIS YEAR): This day was previously celebrated in several states as Columbus Day. I am more than okay with taking it back.

Thanksgiving / National Day of Mourning (USA)
Thursday, 23 November 2017 (FOR THIS YEAR): Like with Columbus Day, this is usually a day associated with whitewashing our history and erasing the crimes and trauma committed against us. I’m also okay with taking it back as well.

Saami Day
Tuesday 6, February 

If there are other important days specific to Native / Indigenous / Aboriginal people both in the United States and worldwide, please let us know in the comments or private message and we will add to the list.

Let me know if any of you are interested in participating! 

It’s 2017 and Roger Federer has won 4 straight titles defeating the very best:

2. AO (defeating Rafa nadal)

In the late nineteenth century, government officials in both the United States and Australia devised new policies for indigenous peoples: “assimilation” in the United States and “protection” in Australia. As can be seen by Commissioner Morgan’s quote, officials often proclaimed that they were ushering in a new age of dealing fairly and kindly with the remaining indigenous inhabitants. Yet these new policies actually entailed one of the most draconian measures possible: the removal of indigenous children from their kin and communities to be raised in distant institutions. Instead of breaking with the past use of violence and force, these new approaches are best seen as part of a continuum of colonizing approaches, all aimed ultimately at extinguishing indigenous people ’s claims to their remaining land. 2 As the anthropologist Ann Laura Stoler finds, “The politics of compassion was not an oppositional assault on empire but a fundamental element of it”; the “production and harnessing of sentiment” comprised a key “technology of the colonial state.”

In both countries, government officials and reformers used a remarkably similar language to justify their policies. They routinely asserted that the removal of indigenous children from their families would “save” the children from lives of backwardness and poverty in their “camps” and “civilize” and make them “useful” in Australian and American societies. Authorities also warned that if children were not removed, indigenous people would become a “burden” or a “menace” to their emerging nations. Just underneath this articulated layer of justification lay a bedrock of concerns about defining and building the nation — as white, Christian, and modern. Policy makers regarded the surviving indigenous populations as standing in the way of national unity, modernity, and progress and envisioned child removal as a means to complete the colonization of indigenous peoples. Significantly, whereas U.S. authorities focused primarily on culturally assimilating Indian children, many Australian officials promoted the biological absorption of Aboriginal children, what they termed “breeding out the colour.”
