Ancestral Pride, January 18, 2017
What I know on the subject of why I mask up. There are many times when people are at “political” actions or see pics/footage of direct actions pertaining to Indigenous Land Defence or any kind of resistance to the government or corporations and we are masked up. There is always people who take it upon themselves to question you as if they are the grand arbiter of how you can or cannot participate in resistance. Read the rest of this entry

Ancestral Pride: Funding For Frontlines
by Ancestral Pride, February 2016
