Think about the lethal evil unleashed at the capitol. Now think about the foundations of this country, and the colonial paradigms laid down via violence that established the norms that many live by today. Now think about the Native nations within these lands, and ask yourself: How much of those colonial supremacy ideals have soaked into the very fabric of our governments and social patterns, and what does that spell for our future? Religious intolerance, homophobia, the casual acceptance of racially damaging imagery, turning a blind eye to sacred sites being eradicated and Native children locked in cages, and a myriad of other norms geared toward a colonial Eurocentric perspective, these are the pervasive conditions which will destroy our Native nations from the inside out, just like we saw within America’s capitol the other day. *NM*
