Before being burned alive by Spaniards, chief Hatuey was asked if he wanted 2 accept Christianity & go 2 heaven. Hatuey asked if Spaniards go 2 heaven, to which a priest answered they do. Hatuey then stated he'd rather go to hell where he wouldn't see such cruel people.

I had no idea there was a Black Film Archive online. But there is, and it is much useful.

Check it out.


@socrates just checking to see what’s up with this instance, I’ve been having issues access via my browser

@bgcarlisle never mind, seems to have corrected what ever it was - the URL was showing up as not discoverable, but all is now right.

Having issues linking to scholar social via my browser this am, is there an issue to know about? @bgcarlisle

Are identities like clothing, free to assemble but fraught with cultural interpretations?

Are they immutable?

Perhaps they are Goffmanesque, transactional?

They are unlikely purely a matter of individual decision.

In struggle! on this day of international recognition of workers' rights.

It just seems too convenient an approach to talk co-existence of knowledge in a colonial context by settler archaeologists (however well intentioned) when Indigenous people are arguing for a revanchist Indigenous led approach that foregrounds Indigenous intellectual traditions, theories, and methods.

I'm all for multiplicities of 'knowing,' but why is it important to decenter all knowledge just when Indigenous Intellectual approaches are becoming resurgent?

Show thread

Listening to archaeologists talk about 'two way seeing' and can't help feel it is becoming a way to rationalize maintaining non-Indigenous supremacy and deny the possibility of Indigenous intellectual leadership.
