The Tule River War in California
The 1850s were a devastating time for California Indians, as swarms of contentious and tough miners poured into their homelands. The Indians were often ruthlessly slaughtered or enslaved, and the federal government, which had won California in the Mexican War, failed to provide them with any protection. In 1851, Governor Peter Burnett said that unless the Indians were sent east of the Sierras, ‘a war of extermination would continue to be waged until the Indian race should become extinct.
Not racist or homophobic? I’d look at your previous messages to me again. I think it’s truly sad that you have allowed yourself to be marginalized in your own mind. Go wave your blood soaked and disease contaminated flag on Mars. Or, decolonize your brain.
Imperialism is a deleterious effect felt by all people of all nations, enforced by the ideology that the chosen few are entitled to dominate the vast majority. And this is even exacerbated in the age of covert corporate fascism. Not oppressed?! My grandmothers people were essentially written out of the history books! Her language, histories, culture, and beliefs STOLEN!! Denied!! There were bounties on the scalps of California Indians well past abolition! Again, you can’t just lump all 1st Nations people into one pile! They are extremely diverse nations with many many languages, cosmological differences, traditions and beliefs. The genocide that occurred was due to disease! Disease promulgated by the husbandry of animals in Europe and brought to this continent. And OUR European ancestors were the pawns that came to the east coast to colonize the lands, who were historical victims of religion and the queen on her throne. Kill whitey you say? Then that would mean killing my mother, Scottish and Welsh, whose people were also rounded up, killed, and seen as non human. Check yourself. We live in an age where the corporate global elite run rampant destroying the earth and all of us with it! The same cop that would kill a black kid riding his bike in my neighborhood (in the “state” that my grandmother has over 15,000 years of documented motheruckin history in!!!) is the same cop that would shoot you in the back of the head if commanded too. The police are now militarized, and yet there are people like you who continue to feed the monster! Where will you go when there is no fresh water to drink? What will you eat when there is only death and famine? Where will you run when the tinderbox of class division, racism, corporatism, and the spiritual destruction of Mother Earth explodes? I’m not a “sjw”, just an individual on this delicate blue space ship looking for a more comfortable ride for everyone. And sadly, even for people like you, because your not dead yet and we have share this only fuckin planet we have together
Well, seeing as I’m friends with most of my neighbors, I disagree. Seeing as I’m also of mixed European and Native American ancestry, I would completely have to disagree. I’ve walked with the Panthers, done sit ins with AIM, and fought Nazi scum on the streets with my mexica family, I would and will completely disagree. Crime rates are a reflection of economic disparity. Learn yourself up. You are a pawn of imperialism like your ancestors. Again, like my Indian grandma would say “how did you get here, gringo?”. Self determination is for all
You are obviously a very intelligent person. Why don’t you keep messaging me and we can talk about some real shit. Thanks for proving again the blind ignorance and arrogance of some people. Kill the racist homophobe in your head, and take a real look at history. How did you get here? And what brought you here? Up your awareness
Much love to all my relations at Chumash Culture Days in Santa Ynez, at Kalawasaq! Looks brilliant! Bringing it BACK!
