Thanksgiving 2020

Rather than a regular blog from me this week, I want to share some articles that seem relevant to today. I also want to say that, here in Chicago, Illinois, I am on Bodéwadmiakiwen (Potawatomi), Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo), Miami, Očeti Šakówiŋ (Sioux), and Peoria land.

First, some thoughts on land acknowledgment and reparations for Indigenous communities: https://nativegov.org/a-guide-to-indigenous-land-acknowledgment/

And second, this article about stopping the violence against Native women: https://www.antiracismdaily.com/archives/stop-violence-against-native-women-anti-racism-daily

I hope your day offers you opportunities to be both thankful and thoughtful.
