By Andrea Smith, Unsettling Ourselves We often hear the mantra in indigenous communities that Native women aren’t feminists.

Indigenous feminism without apology

Supposedly, feminism is not needed because Native women were treated with respect prior to colonization. Thus, any Native woman who calls herself a feminist is often condemned as being “white.” However, when I started interviewing Native women organizers as part of a research project, I was surprised by how many community-based activists were describing themselves as “feminists without apology.” They were arguing that feminism is actually an indigenous concept that has been co-opted by white women. The fact that Native societies were egalitarian 500 years ago is not stopping women from being hit or abused now. These Native feminists are challenging not only patriarchy within Native communities, but also white supremacy and colonialism within mainstream white feminism.

Indigenous feminism thus centers anti-colonial practice within its organizing.

Experience tells us that most parents want to talk openly with their children about sexuality, yet often feel ill-prepared to do so. Frequently parents look to schools, religious groups and community organizations for assistance—seeking information, skills, encouragement, support. Books. May Is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month. The following is a guest post by Planned Parenthood Arizona’s Director of Education Vicki Hadd-Wissler, M.A.

May Is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month

At Planned Parenthood Arizona, we hope families are talking about changing bodies, healthy relationships, love, and sex throughout the year, and with May’s National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month, parents and the important adults in the lives of teens have a unique opportunity to talk with teens about pregnancy prevention. The month is aimed at helping teens to identify their plans for the future, and consider how those plans would be impacted by an unintended pregnancy. Ongoing conversations between parents and teens build in protective factors. Studies have shown that teens who report having ongoing conversations with their parents about sex wait longer to begin having sex and are more likely to use condoms and other birth control methods when they eventually become sexually active.

Hi wssp yall I wrote 3 zines on xicana feminism, ... - Christianity & Race: NATIVE AMERICAN GENOCIDE MYTH. Since the 1960s it has been popular to assert that Euroethnic Christians stole the Western Hemisphere by committing genocide against Amerindians.This view is held by most public university professors and cultural voices like film maker Michael Moore (below video).ANTI-CHRISTIAN CLAIMGenocide accusations are often leveled in an attempt to discredit Christianity as a force for good in the world.


Those who espouse the Amerindian genocide view know that the desire to spread the gospel to lost New World people was among the primary motivations behind European colonization.The genocide myth supporters also know that America's founding generations were deeply religious and devoted to the Christian God.As intelligent successful white Christians, Euroethnic settlers represent a target for defamation to the secular multiculturalists.

Way back a long, long time ago, people would gather in close circles in their homes and sew garments with their hands, their work illuminated only by flickering candlelight. They darned socks, made christening gowns from scratch, sewed buttonholes, embroidered beautiful designs onto the edges of collars and onto the pockets of aprons — there were many items of clothing they needed, and they made most of it themselves.

The first sewing machine was invented in 1755, and within a hundred years the device was commercially available to middle class families around the world who were overjoyed at the prospect of making quick work of sewing clothing. A man’s shirt could now be completed in only an hour with the aid of a sewing machine, compared to the 14 hours it once took to sew by hand.
