(30/200) Language, at its base, is egalitarian: free, roaming words that migrate from image to thought to emotion to action. “Everything is in the language we use,” and for that we might speak with a certain stewardship for words. It’s language that matters most, emanating from some hot-bellied beginning, which is to say root exchange, which is to say dialogue, which is to say reciprocity, which is to say that sometimes language also requires me to say nothing at all. Listening to wind, to stories, recounting trauma and singing and yelling and owning fully to one’s violations, listening to the tremors that exist beneath language, above, behind, and ahead—this is how we honor language, a tool too often used past/present to manipulate, strangle, erase, forget, settler tongue a compendium of linear strikes and lines and symbols queuing left to right, covering the screen and shielding me from truth, blanketing continents in their acquisition. Words cobble together for apology, for addressing wrongdoings to people and place while shallow in action. Words call bullshit, too, language of acquisition flipped on its head to demand accountability. Land requires healing through direct action and reclamation of dialogue, not by unattended, colonizer decree. . . . - The Book: Whereas (2017) - The Author: Layli Long Soldier - The Publisher: @graywolfpress - The Tip: @orionmagazine

[https://spoti.fi/2FSPSpe] you may or may not have heard about the Dakota 38. [...] The Dakota 38 refers to thirty-eight Dakota men who were executed by hanging, under orders from President Abraham Lincoln. [...] The word Minnesota comes from mni, which means water; and sota, which means turbid. — 38 Layli Long Soldier #laylilongsoldier #38 #TheDakota38 #grass #grassah #Mnisota #minnesota #green #tunes #mixtapes #mixes #surprise
