The following article is the first in what i intend to be an irregular series (as i overall re-energize and re-activate this blog project) in which i will lay out my now several years deep personal political project. This is an attempted synthesis of two often distant, and times thought to be opposing, radical streams of thought: Nican Tlaca Nationalism (Indigenism) and communism, specifically Historical Materialism (“Marxism”), though i do take some influence from non-Marxian communisms as well.
This post, and indeed the series that will follow, should never be taken as the final word however. I am constantly reading, constantly studying (not least of which is due to my primary work as a Doctoral student) and such i am always synthesizing new information, new theory, as i attempt to come to a fuller understanding of the situation facing Nican Tlaca (Native) People and the path forward to our liberation.
