The view from Tansy Point, across from a city I call home. Like the rest of the Columbia River Mouth, it was originally home to the Chinook Indian Nation. The US government has yet to honor Chinook people with federal recognition, give them a reservation, or pay them 500K it owes. Stole their land and then said they didn’t exist. They now have a unique opportunity to return to and own some original land.
Here is something one can do, right now, from almost anywhere in the world, to help their - centuries long - fight for recognition and land. Currency may be one of the stranger and more devastating fictions of our time but through it at the moment we have power to begin repair — Please join me in donating and help spread the word —
