If you get the chance to read my thread on the indigenous genocide in Maine, it would mean a lot to me, and thousands of others currently living. As well as the thousands of my ancestors who were killed. I encourage boosting. I'll be boosting it occasionally throughout tomorrow.

I'm going to sleep y'all.

I love you all very much, thank you.

Today I finished a really remarkable book called Her Mother's Mother's Mother and Her Daughters by Maria José Silveira. It chronicles 500 years of colonization in Brazil through the matrilineal descendants of a young indigenous girl born the year the Portuguese arrive on the coast. The story speaks with clarity and power about the lives of these women in a burgeoning and often cruel world. Despite the rawness, though, this book is a celebration of remembrance. Highly highly recommend.

:lotalac: Cualli teotlac, mimichtin!🐠 Hello and welcome again to another thread about The Aztec Empire! I really should come up with a name for this series 🤔 Any suggestions? #StarTalk

Today we will be discussing a topic often brought up in media with about 0% understanding of the source or lore: The fierce and mighty gods and goddesses of the Mexica Pantheon :sugarskull:

🇩🇴👻 Random book rec: For kids! Ghost Squad by Claribel Ortega. Equal parts spooky and sweet, best friends Lucy and Syd accidentally awaken malevolent spirits and have to rescue their town along with Syd's witch grandmother and their sidekick, Chunk the cat. Explores Dominican lore, friendship, and family bonds.

I have no stakes in this at all, I just think this is cool as hell. Expose your kids to other cultures with literature or just treat your inner kid. Pre orders at buyghostsquad.com

The Raven Tower, by Ann Leckie, is a fantasy of gods old and new, of loyalty and patience. It has ravens and stone and queer people of various sorts, and it is an excellent read. I recommend it.
