The truth is, we are blessed with this privilege of manoeuvring through systems of colonization, straight up. We are the frontline of access to our respective communities — this is a huge charge & high honor. We are the gatekeepers. Now that we get it, let’s focus on collecting recon, reverse infiltrating colonial spaces, & demanding liberation for our people.
As light – skinned or white – passing natives, we acknowledge our palatability to whiteness & we acknowledge our privilege. Our hurt feelings mean absolutely nothing when our darker, more identifiably native relatives are being targeted, profiled, assaulted, & killed every.single.day
