Hi for everyone who knows me as a scientist—I have scaled back pretty intensely on my countertrolling.

Occasionally I will do it though. Part of this is pedagogy, believe it or not.

This is a thread about countertrolling as educational justice praxis.
I have a few jobs. One is to do & communicate really good science: I do that with most of my time. Probably about 50% of my waking hours total are spent on science thought/communicating it.

This is my duty to my supervisors, my colleagues, and especially my funders (taxpayers)
But a thing a lot of my white colleagues may not know is that as a visible/known Native presence in the academy, it is my duty to make more room up here for other marginalized folks to join if they want to.

was both the Chief of the Winds in the far away land of Aumatex and a deity. so was chief of spirit people
Nitaino means, "good people" and whenever the good people of the Caribe weren't, Guabancex turns into Juracán
