I was already in lockdown mode due to indigenous info (Shinnecock jel Wetsuweten situations, etc), but I’m looking forward to the BIPOC and queers jel disabled folk (I am one) getting together and finally addressing history: that when colonists came here and killed our queers and made our genders binary (after doing the same to themselves before meeting us) and plagiarized our governments, removing that ALL RELATIONS ARE EQUAL from them, they doomed their system.

It’s 7th generation time, looking forward to what ukmuljin(8th generation will be adding next ❤️ Wela’lin(thanks for the piece! – a Mi’kmaq two-spirit puoin nonbinary transgender queer BIPOC folk 🙏🤟🖖✌️🙏😹
