Welcome to Indigenous Action where we dig deep into critical issues impacting our communities throughout Occupied America/Turtle Island. This is an autonomous anti-colonial broadcast with unapologetic and claws-out analysis towards total liberation. So take your seat by this fire and may the bridges we burn together, light our way.

I am a queer white woman and I try my hardest to learn about cultures and support in anyway I can even if it’s just sharing information. This podcast is a great way to listen learn and help myself understand and be a supporter.
An independent and honest voice
Too often, I find non-native political figures attempting to speak on behalf of native communities, and this podcast is a breath of fresh air - if a sad one.
I’m very far removed from their struggle geographically and culturally. However, in almost every episode, I get a little choked up hearing about the ongoing genocide against native peoples on Turtle Island (dubbed “America” by colonizers). I wish there was more I could do living outside the US, but at the minimum, I make a point to mention this podcast as an important contribution to human culture. I wish you all the best in your ongoing struggles for basic rights, and I look forward to sharing future episodes so that the world knows what the colonial governments in Washington and Ottawa are doing.
They are doing great work here
Thank you so much for doing this podcast. I’m a queer native woman(Pomo) and I’ve learned a lot from listening. There are a lot of points that are made that I have always felt, but didn’t necessarily have to vocabulary to express to the colonizers and microagressors that I have to deal with every day. I absolutely devour this pod and have listened to each episode twice. Thank you for making my heart swell with each listen ❤️
