" What is ‘The Americas’ "?
" What is ‘The Americas’ "?
[Note: When J. Elliot refers to her being classed as one of ‘your people’ in relation to black people of color, it’s based on her reputation of being an outspoken, anti-racism ally].
This thesis develops a methodology for approaching design in Indigenous communities through an analysis and deconstruction of the remote NT community, Yuendumu, and it’s inhabitants, the Warlpiri people. By comparing historical data with fieldwork and consultation, a study of traditional camps, family structures, and cultural practices, form a platform from which an analysis of the current condition can be drawn. Recognising points of discord between Indigenous culture and western housing, including the spatial implications of kinship, avoidance, and sorcery, combined with macro and micro levels of infrastructure, and services, allows for the proposal of alternate housing typologies to those provided by large scale housing schemes.
One time in like 5th grade I had this teacher and she gave us all bottles of shit like this and told us to squeeze it all out and of course we were like fuck yeah and did it and then she said,
“Now, try and shove it all back in the container.” Of course we all tried, and then stared at her confused as shit. When we all obviously gave up, she said, “In the moment, you were so consumed with what you were doing that you didn’t realize the mess you were making. Then, after it was so quickly and easily poured out, you realize it is impossible to put it all back in. Remember this for the rest of your lives when it comes to the words that come out of your mouth”
Many Australians believe it’s acceptable to discriminate against Indigenous Australians, with one in 10 saying they would make a joke about an Aboriginal person. The findings come from research carried out by BeyondBlue into racism and discrimination faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. Racism, like any form of discrimination, leads to distress, which in turn can lead to depression and anxiety.
“Thirty seven per cent of respondents said they thought Indigenous Australians were “sometimes a bit lazy” and one in five said they would move away if an Indigenous Australian sat near them.”
But racism doesn’t exist in Australia, right?
Please help me repair my mom’s home. <click here to visit Indiegogo.
Hi, I’m nerdfaceangst, I am a Native Hawaiian woman, and I’m asking please for help. My mother’s home is marred by constant reminders of abuse and struggle. I have been trying for years to help, but there’s only so much I can do. Please click the link above to go to my Indiegogo campaign and read more. The link contains references to sexual and physical abuse, so please read with caution. It’s nothing graphic, but there are mentions.
It would mean a lot to me, if I was able to go back to school knowing she would be okay. I’m finally going back to get my degree, which may sound very selfish, but I have spent most of my savings helping my mother. I simply can’t afford it on my own anymore.
Please help. Please kokua. Any amount is fine. If you can’t donate, signal boosting is appreciated as well!
22 days left! Thank you for all your reblogs!
One of the best examples of artistic integrity on a corporate scale.
