During introductions at native events, just say no tribal affiliation. Don’t be that person who goes “I belong to the human tribe.” It’s not funny, it’s another micro-aggression that you are bringing OUR space that WE invited you too.
When you do that, your white privilege is showing. It is privilege that makes you feel comfortable enough in a native space to make an inherently racist statement in our space. A space that we opened up to you. An invitation we extended to you.
Try not to be rude and rip up our invitation to you in our face.
“ Love is a verb. Love is as love does. Love is an act of will. It is the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth. Will implies choice. We do not have to love. We choose to love. ”

For those who don’t know— Andrea Smith is a Native American woman and scholar in ethnic/gender studies. One of her main projects is the INCITE! collective.
This makes me think of Silvia Federici’s book, Caliban and the Witch (which I still need to finish), which talks about how the construction of patriarchy in Europe was a critical development in the formation of capitalism and “primitive accumulation.”
I’ve been living back home in Alaska for 18 months. When I left Portland I was deeply embittered with every aspect of Portland except its cheap drinks.
I’ve been back for visiting and for work five times since then.
I can honestly this is the first time being in the city that I’m not being washed by hurt, rage, and deep distrust as I move about the city.
It’s not waves now, but I’m still wet.
Why are we using so much drugs & alcohol during our queer sex. This photo is the satay collected by Jason Mitchell presented at YTH Live about YMSM sexual activity + substance use. It isn’t about all queer peeps but I know anecdotally that sexual activity + substance use in high in our young queer communities. Hella I did it. We need to start addressing where the line of dependance is for our sexual activity.
