The Unfavourable Indian

Amazing words. Reminds me of my responsibility as a settler on stolen land to fight for decolonization.

Reclaim the Warrior

idnomore

Swallowed up on the soil of my ancestors

There is a thirst

For red land

That no red man

Can quench

Forgotten on the soil of my ancestors

Each day

A struggle for recognition

For redefinition as equal

As valuable

As human

 

Them Indians are causing a ruckus again

God damn Indians

Living off the taxes of hard working citizens

As if my bachelors degree

And years serving community

Counts for nothing

A struggle for recognition

A fight to refuse to be forgotten

A battle to protect what little we have left

Gets labeled

Unfavourable Indian

                                    Noisy squaw

Wrecking everything that is good for the whole country

There they go again,

                                 Those fuckin’ Indians

We are only favourable

When we are opening for your events

Offering up the cultural pieces we have had to fight to keep alive

Through cultural genocide

Look at those pretty colours
