This Website is a collection of media created through my experiences with decolonization and finding indigeneity within settler-colonial society.
Decolonization? indigeneity? setter-colonial? If you’re unfamiliar with these terms, you’re encouraged to read anyway, but please respect: it’s expected that everyone who engages (comments or syndicates) this media have a “basic” knowledge of the complex relationship between Indigenous (“Native,” “First Nations,” “Aboriginal,” etc.) and Colonial (“Western,” “White,” “European”) societies.
A “basic” knowledge is defined here as having read:
“Decolonization is not a metaphor” by Tuck and Yang

Knowing that, more background on the author, emsenn:
emsenn is 30 years-old, Itázipčho (Sans Arc of the Lakota), queer (e/em/eir pronouns), has permanent health and mobility issues, and has developed skills in land stewardship and urban direct action. E currently explores the intersection of those skills, and uses this Website to provide educational or opinionated information about them and related topics.
The goal is to use this Website to cultivate support for these actions. This means I approach the Web with a different intention than many users, which is reflected in how I interact with it.
