We now stand at a time when settlers in colonized nations need to take responsibility and provide allyship to the frontlines of indigenous issues that affect all people, both indigenous and settlers. We need to confront still present acts of racism, stereotyping and cultural appropriation and assist in the recognition of indigenous rights – especially in transformational culture, where sacrament use, spiritual practices, and land and resource rights dialogs are often passed over. Why is this? Let’s deal with these shadowy discomforts, our own ignorance and blockages and be in service of a socially just culture. The Evolver Network is planning an online decolonization workshop for the week of American Thanksgiving. Stay tuned as we seal the date. Individual Spores plan events around the theme – find your local Spore to tune in: http://www.evolvernetwork.org/spore-locations Here are a links to a few websites of Indigenous media allies: Intercontinental Cry: For the past 10 years, IC Magazine has stood at the forefront of the global indigenous movement. As a grassroots publication run by volunteers, we have published more than 3,000 articles detailing the challenges, struggles, and successes of approximately 520 Indigenous Nations and Peoples around the world. Preferring to offer groundbreaking coverage that is ignored by other media, IC alone examines the dynamics of the movement, and the concepts critical to its success. Indigenous Action Media: IAM was founded on August 25th, 2001 to provide strategic media support and direct action to address issues impacting Indigenous communities. IAM offers media strategy consultation and support in the face of environmental & social injustices. We do this through direct support, workshops, web and graphic design services, documentaries and youth empowerment projects. We are a volunteer collective of experienced Indigenous media makers & activists that work together on a project by project basis for media justice from an anti-colonial & anti-capitalist framework. Decolonization: Decolonization is a journal which centers and privileges various forms of Indigenous knowledges, epistemologies and methodologies for the purpose of decolonization at all levels. This blog is about extending and building community. Too often, academic publishers see readers in a one-way relationship – we publish the knowledge, and you come read/consume/absorb it. We want to allow space for ongoing communication, to build dialogue, and engage with each of you in new ways. We want to engage in discussion about what it means to decolonize, what are strategies and ways forward, how we can harness our differences and push forward . Decolonization is committed to supporting community and this is one way in which we are experimenting in doing so through the tool our journal most frequently uses – the Internet. Blog posts are written and moderated by the Editorial Board of Decolonization, as well as guest writers. Want to write? We encourage you to email us with your ideas or articles ([email protected]) and look at the blog policies.
