My name is Kelly. I am Cherokee and Blackfoot from what I know so far. I was not raised in Native culture but it has always been the side of me that I've supported the most. Hit me up if you have anything to say. Thanks :)

white supremacy, genocide, slavery, oppression, rape and the racism that still goes on today can still NEVER break or take away our history and the fact that Mexica women are strong, Mexica women are brown, Mexica women are beautiful, Mexica women are proud , Mexica women will fight and mexica women will rise. The future is ours. Liberation through education. Timexicah, We are mexica. 

-(a tribute to Mexica women)- josesleepydiaz

important notes:

Not Latino not Hispanic, we are Mexica (mesheekah) - people of Mexican, “native american”, and “central american” decent. One people One nation.

A Tribe Called Red won Breakout Artist of the year at the Juno’s.
Why is this a big deal? Because Native performers are usually only nominated for the Native category, and this means that Canada is paying attention to a First Nations group of performers.

FYI: Juno’s are the Canadian version of the Grammy’s

This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.


This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.
