Heating The Rez by Chase Iron Eyes

Today Lastrealindians is launching “Heating The Rez”, an effort to raise $50,000 to properly heat our homes. We are at a loss that this Northern Plains winter is so dangerously cold, propane prices are so abnormally high, and circumstances are such that because a family could not afford to heat a home one of our Tribal members has passed away, freezing to death on the Standing Rock Nation (North & South Dakota, USA http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/woman-dies-dakotas-propane-heat-home-22379636 ).

That is a test of our humanity. Our hope is to convert 20 homes to renewable heating sources in 2014. Buying more propane, at ridiculous prices is the necessary bandaid now, but we are going to move our people forward to regenerative heating sources. Take a look; share the energy.

Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.

Thiiiiiiis, people, thiiiis!

1. Kill alpha male types
2. Achieve world peace

Got it.

I’ve actually read a lot of Sapolsky’s work.  He’s one of my favorite scientists in the neuro/socio world.

I just watched the documentary and there is so much more about the troop that isn’t in this photoset—not only does the troop have a culture of little aggression and greater cooperation, but any incoming jerk baboons learned within a few months that their shitty behaviour was in no way acceptable, that the troop only rewarded sociability, and they changed accordingly. 

If effin’ baboons can learn this there’s pretty much no reason to believe that our only option in dealing with assholes is to just ignore their behaviour and let it continue.

there really is no excuse.

BIG PHOTOSETS FOREVER FOR THEY ARE MUCH HARDER TO IGNORE / a lot of these don’t have hi-res versions available, but i still want to post them

This was not an exaggeration. The government ignored the issue of HIV/AIDS for years before anything was done. Gay and Queer communities had to form their own clinics because no government agencies cared for them. Back then, being diagnosed was equivalent to a death sentence or extreme debt and poor quality of life/a significantly shortened lifespan.

Things got so desperate that people literally had “Die-Ins”— in contemporary usage this refers to masses of people simulating death in order to protest something (like the War in Iraq). In this case, however, fatally sick people would literally lie down in public places and protest with what little energy they had left until they died. There is some footage of a church Die-In in the documentary Beyond Stonewall.  The middle image here of that person’s jacket is not an extreme political statement; it’s what people had to do because they had no other options.

wow.


never forget

queer politics aren’t all hrc t-shirts and shiny lobbying. So many people have already forgotten this extremely recent history.

Heres a little experiment I thought about doing a long time ago. 

Lets all write a story. Anyone with the link can write, add characters, chapters, words, lines, whatever the fuck you want to. Ad drama or adventure or poetic verses. Ad Dont be a dick and erase other people’s shit. Dont be upset if someone edits something you put in there. We’re all working togeather. 

The story itself does not have to make sense. We could have 10 stories started and all going on at different points in time. It doesn’t matter!

As of right now, the 8th of January at 6:50pm, its 100% blank apart from “once upon a time”. I’m not going to write anything else for now, I’m leaving that up to anyone out there on tumblr who feels like it. 

Go. 

everyone should share this because I think it has a future of  being something really great. 

Well what do you know, there are true assholes out there. Someone deleted everything, but what are you going to do. It was an experiment after all. 

However, if you were one of the people who helped write what was the beginning to an amazing story, send me what you remember and I’m going to make another document that’s private. 

pls add me to the real document I came in only after chaos had fallen and brightly colored words littered the blank page
