The term Hispanic, coined by technomarketing experts and by the designers of political campaigns, homogenizes our cultural diversity (Chicanos, Cubans, and Puerto Ricans become indistinguishable), avoids our indigenous cultural heritage and links us directly with Spain. Worse yet, it possesses connotations of upward mobility and political obedience.

@tiffanymjewell The Wangunks, Nehantics and Mohegans. Students still taught in school and field trips Indigenous happily sold the land for 32 coats.

@DinaSecchiaroli My confession. I have been preaching this to my students since day I started, then this year I pull all my own children's book off a shelf and realized I failed miserably. https://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com/2019/08/30/plenty-of-talking-animals-dragons-pirates-no-lg...

The designer worked hard to try to recreate the mosaic of latinx history and culture saying you can't separate the African, Taino, Indigenous main land tribes, the hispanic, and histories of the America from our (not mine) history

Systems thinking helps meat an analytical level terms of day to day with goals for myself, my students, and society as a whole we must think of taking back knowledge, taking back the web, preserving and restoring indigenous knowledge as a movement

Greg McVerry

My favorite takeaway from was listening to all the indigenous voices on what ownership means and if knowledge can be owned and licensed at all.

@mweller or maybe it is time to rethink conference circuit in general given diversifying academy, climate crisis, cost for indigenous and marginalized peoples, childcare, the long history of misogyny at events, maybe regional, local is better

"Indigenous Knowledge is the original opennesss. When knowledge is never owned. This model of open is still based on who owns what"
