Decolonize your mind – Nicole RunningRabbit

10 Nov

I do believe I have a valid reason to set my tent down on Siksika lands here in what is now called “Calgary”.

These lands (some sacred sites in & around Calgary) are only disputed by the CDN Govt. in our unhonoured treaty #7.

My new/old/potential friends & family are welcome to join in a respectful manner, anytime. Our humanitarian/environmental reasons are intertwined, afterall.

Damages to Olympic Plaza have been paid back to the “city of Calgary” in advance, to the tune of billions of dollars in oil royalties & other non-renewable resources that are scraped out of our mother earth & off the backs of Siksika/Kainai/Peigan/TsuuTina/Nakoda People, while some of us have no clean water to drink in our homes, if we are lucky to even have homes on reservation.

A large percentage of The Blackfoot People in Alberta slowly die off, continually in poverty from a slow & drawn out genocide/colonization/assimilation ongoing for the last 500+ yrs.

That is where the estimated $40k damage/4¢ per Calgarian taxpayer argument for evicting occupy calgary gets truly morbid for me, on the municipal & federal government’s part.

As well as being recently physically assaulted & threatened, I’ve been called hostile, divisive to the group, self-pitying, “playing the victim”, “looking for pity’, “racist toward the white man” & an agitator while I have been living at olympic plaza.

This will not stop me from showing solidarity to stop a corporate/governmental regime from completely wiping out the 100% = The Human Race.

When One really looks at the injustices we all face in Canada & Globally, One realizes that, in a way, We are all now facing what happened to Indigenous People in North/South America. Perpetrated by the corporations with their long reach into our governments, media, food, education and financial systems.

Decolonize Our Minds. Decolonize Calgary


In peace and solidarity.
