S3.E5 – Listening to Indigenous Voices

By the Jilted Indian Podcast

Why are we shocked by the mistreatment of the indigenous? Why are we shocked by racism, gender inequality, or police brutality and mass incarceration of black men? The constitution is working. Join the Jilted Indians as we discuss the importance of listening to indigenous voices and building a shared memory of the history of this country on a special Indigenous People’s Day episode.

Show Notes:

This is our THIRD episode regarding indigenous peoples, our Season 2 premiere was a discussion about Native American History Month and Thanksgiving and we celebrated Indigenous People’s Day later that season (Why? Because Columbus was a MURDERER, and we don’t celebrate the depraved). In this episode we start off talking about what we learned since the last Indigenous People’s Day episode. that included discussion about the tribes of Texas, the history of Native American suffrage, honoring the original guardians of the land we occupy, and a sobering look at the red tape surrounding the hidden in plain sight crisis that is the missing and murdered Native Women. There is a lot to unpack.

We want to note that there is still mistrust and discrimination against Native People’s today, in the year of 21st Century, 500+ years since the occupation of North America began.

Young Native Men can’t even take a college tour without people calling the cops on them. 

Hosing Down the water protectors in cold weather DURING THANKSGIVING, do you remember that? That South Dakota Pipeline still got built on S-A-C-R-E-D Native Land. Wonder if that means if there is oil to be transported in the future, cemeteries across America got paved over for pipelines.

The United States as a PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM and PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL TEAM that are named using slurs against Native and First Peoples.

And big deal Cleveland, no one cares that you are removing “Chief Wahoo”  as a mascot, if there will still be local gear with the image being sold.  For the record, the original occupants of Ohio before colonization were the Erie, Kickapoo, and Shawnee Peoples.

We reference Mark Charles’ TEDTalk and recommend you watch it:

Overview of Inuit Colonization:

As referenced in Mark Charles’ TEDTalk, Canada has held a Truth and Reconciliation meeting with the Inuits and other First People’s. The resources here give a general overview of the colonization of the Inuits, acknowledging the genocide and crimes committed in pursuit of manifest destiny.

We don’t even understand HOW it was legitimate that Russia owned Alaska, but they sold it to America in 1867. Here is how that sale affected the Native Alaskans.

Also “Eskimo” is a slur, and like the US’s Washington DC based NFL team, Canada has a named a team using this racist slur.
