I once read in a book for class that Native American women are the least represented demographic in US media. I don’t want this to be true in the sapphic community as well.

Here’s to Native wlw who aren’t recognized or acknowledged at all in the media or the community.

Here’s to the Native wlw who are rejected for their dark skin, fierce features, and anything else that should be revered for their defining traits that unify a nation of people.

Here’s to the mixed Native wlw who are rejected for being white passing, too black, too anything and “not enough” Native. Your identity is real and valid.

Native wlw are glorious and important and deserve love in a community meant to uplift those who are forgotten by the rest of the world.

Angry is good. Angry gets shit done. You shed tears for Compe Anansi and here he is, telling you you are staring down the barrel of 300 years of subjugation, racist bullshit, and heart disease. He is telling you there isn’t one goddamned reason you shouldn’t go up there right now and slit the throats of every last one of these Dutch motherfuckers and set fire to this ship.
