Just walking through downtown portland following people with hateful religious signs because that’s just what you do in Portland.
(And No, it’s not something meant to be taken super seriously for anyone who’s about to dive into some deep debate about the sign I made)
So this happened half an hour from where I now type, 25 years ago.
Despite its occurrence at the start of the decade.
It’s perhaps the most iconic photo of the 1990′s in Canada. In brief, when additional land on an already contested golf course sitting on a Mohawk burial site was expropriated to add another 9 holes over the graves and history of many Mohawk ancestors, their community near Montreal decided to fight back, blocking the bridge leading into the city while facing off with federal troops and local police. The extra holes were never built and looking back, it seemed like one of many events that led to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on the history of government sponsored persecution of native peoples in Canada.
