How infantilizing is it for these companies to simply pretend we are not speaking out against their anti indigenous practices? As though we are crying children who must be ignored to correct behavior?
Ya know I’m just gonna create a mass thread of companies/ people who have ignored indigenous requests to cease racist behavior or costumes. Starting with @Yandy
#IronEyesKaya came about when Kaya was deemed native ambassador for Trumps admin when she has no actual Apache ancestry. She’s just a mess overall. And ignores ntv voices educating her. There’s too much to link so surf through that HT
#JKRowling is trash for her appropriation of skin walkers, and other cultural concepts and then blocking every indigenous voice attempting to educate. ……
Then of course @pinrose who tried to sell witch kits with sage and totally missed the point of why it was wrong in the first place. Still no response since their backhanded apology:
Then of course there’s Alyssa Milano who went off about #Metoo but still sells R*dskins gear in her line despite us educating her about the impacts of racist logos in combo with the Me Too movement 😑. #CharmedWhiteSupremacy explores this more.
Apparently Milano said she couldn’t get rid of the apparel but that if we wrote enough letters maybe it’d get some steam. No word on that since though:
Scroll up from this tweet and have a good laugh.
Let’s not forget the three day twitter war with the Slants in response to their defending trademarking racial slurs at the expense of indigenous ppls fight against R*dskins. This is a hella long thread btw:
After three whole ass days of @xodanix3 @EmmyNawjoopinga and I sifting through their cognitive dissonance they still remain adamant that their ruling will somehow work in our favor regarding r-slur. #NotYourMascot #ChangeTheName
I’m compiling this list so the rest of you can see the labor we have put in and how even though we provide this labor, it is ultimately ignored and dismissed.

Btw if you source from me here, please credit and consider compensating me.
But watch, even though I provide receipts on receipts many of you will continue you invisibilize our labor. Pretend it didn’t happen. We are #NoLongerInvisible in the age of social media so start taking accountability for yourself.
Let’s not forget how Twitter continually upholds indigenous erasure. Via #TwitterUpholdsSupremacy
And let’s not forget how IG also upholds indigenous erasure like in this incident here with Matoaka, as well as allowing various fake ndn pages to stay up and running:
P.s. she never gave an update
The examples are endless. And this doesn’t even include the artists that V I O L E N T L Y exploit indigenous identity and ancestors with zero apology or regard. This thread would never end if I went and found each one of those receipts.
And no it’s not necessarily about wanting hyper visibility, we just want acknowledgment and R E S P E C T regarding our humanity yet that is so so so difficult for many of you to extend.

You’d rather consume and exploit then recognize our humanity and autonomy.
@PartyCity is a company we’ve asked for yearrrrrssssss to pull their “native” costumes but noooope:
Admit 👏🏼 that you don’t care about indigenous people 👏🏼👏🏼 so we can all move tf on. Like I just want you to admit it instead of continually ignoring us. Admit it to Y O U R S E L F THATS ALL I WANT AT THIS POINT
