The most beautiful burial I’ve ever witnessed. After over a 100 yrs the children who died at Carlisle Indian Boarding School are laid to rest by the youth of this generation. Wrapped in buffalo robes and back to the comfort of Grandmother Earth in their ancestral Lakota lands.

On International Women Human Rights Defenders Day, we recognize Gidimt'en land defender Sleydo'. Just 10 days ago she was arrested at gunpoint by Canadian police for defending the Wedzin Kwa river from a pipeline. More at #16Days #WHRDs #AllOutForWedzinKwa

Part 3 @photobracken & I’s series. Resource extraction brings violence-BC’s Hwy of Tears is out of control-the Hwy is a major industry corridor. CGL has over a dozen man camps w 1000’s workers along LNG pipeline route. Danger to Indigenous women’s lives…

Part 3 of ⁦@photobracken⁩ & I’s series out. W resource extraction= violence. In the spring of 1899, the women of Hagwilget, were given alcohol & raped by miners, “who took their clothes, photographed them & carried their underwear around on sticks”.

There are no expletives in the Lakota vernacular. Also, there’s no word for goodbye. So we simply say — toksa— “until my heart feels you again.”

@Powell7Gill @TheAgentNDN @MiramiraEndeval @IslandheartArt @KrazyKarl15 @photobracken @Songstress28 Read Brandi Morin's writings on the peoples from bands signing on to CGL expressing doing so under duress. And recall, please, that the bands who do sign on have a gag order: no one can say anything CGL deems "negative" about the project or process!

In #Canada, police aggression against journalists is on the rise. Women journalists, especially when reporting on Indigenous stories, are disproportionate targets of police overreaches. #CFWIJ curated a timeline detailing police violations in Canada. ➡️

Chief Howitkat, Freda Huson is on her way to Stockholm right now & is one of only 4 chosen! Past recipients include Edward Snowden and Greta Thunberg in 2019. A handful of Canadians, including environmentalist David Suzuki, have also received the award.

Today we heard Wet'suwet'en land defender @EveSaint8 speak across the street from Parliament Hill. Both Eve and her sister Jocelyn Alec have been criminalized by the RCMP for protecting their unceded territory against the Coastal GasLink fracked gas pipeline. #RCMPofftheYintah

Here we see colonization and the fact that a corporation can make this happen by request and our tax dollars fund terrorism of Indigenous peoples living on their own territory should be the focus of every story.

Before and after pics of Wet'suwet'en Coyote Camp after the RCMP raid. Around the world, justice is dying in favor of corporate profits. Our 'leaders' stand by and let it happen. @photobracken @JorgeBarrera @Gidimten @MarcMillerVM @JustinTrudeau @UN4Indigenous @CSORG

We express our deep concern about the arson attacks against the cabins of Indigenous land defenders. Unist'ot'en Chief Howihkat highlights this pattern, including the burning down of the Gidimt'en cabin at the CGL drill pad site. More at #RCMPofftheYintah

Chief Howihkat (Freda Huson) provides context for the long legacy of arson and destroying Unist’ot’en property at various places on our unceded Yintah since her maternal grandfather’s occupation and use of our territory, up to recent experiences by our current Chief Knedebeas.
