Went to check the progress on the construction of our new house and thought this dirt hill is a perfect place to plant my Pawnee, Ponca, Kiowa, and Critical Race Theory flags https://t.co/4usS6tNCbd

Quoted @WendyRogersAZ

I like Indians and I like Redskins. I like Aunt Jemima and I like Uncle Ben. I like Robert E Lee and I like Stonewall Jackson. I don’t like traitors who hate America. Stand up for our culture!

If syrups and bad sports teams are your “culture,” your culture sucks. https://t.co/HhdBYzdyxf

This photo really means a lot to me. My father didn’t care to have anything to do with me. I never wanted my kids to feel that way. I want to do things to empower them like showing my daughter how she can take on big institutions like Harvard and win by fighting for what’s right! https://t.co/KheUzXsCzM

"These were actual, living people…That decision of how to use items was taken away from them.” Indigenous tribes have asked universities to return sacred remains and items for decades. Many schools are only starting to repatriate them. @CNN https://t.co/KkRGno7CHL

The first photo is how the Whites lived in NYC in 1879. The other is how my Ponca, Pawnee and Kiowa ancestors lived on their ancestral homeland on the Great Plains. US leaders told Native Americans their homes were inferior to the White man’s and this myth is now standard history https://t.co/la6cLZWCen

I disagree with all of this except 3 words—“speaking for myself.” I’m shocked he said this. No one person speaks for all Native Americans and its important to remember that for every Native’s opinion out there another has a different one. We are diverse people like everyone else! https://t.co/nQ22ZtH0dt

I don’t care what the Cleveland baseball team calls itself. “Guardians” is great for the sole reason that it has absolutely nothing to do with Native Americans

Thank you to CNN for airing my calling on Harvard to immediately repatriate Standing Bear’s tomahawk: “‘It's a moral issue. It shouldn't be their call where we have to wait on them to decide and then praise them for being so benevolent,’ Chapman told CNN” https://t.co/a3hNgPmrJk

You know a judge is righteous when he’s got a book about the Sand Creek massacre on his desk in his chambers. It was one of the absolute worst massacres of Native Americans in US history. Few people know about it because they don’t put it history books in schools https://t.co/srRto7GmGK

So cool of CNN to also give my daughter credit for calling on Harvard to return our Ponca ancestor Standing Bear’s tomahawk! I think it’s very important that my kids (and all Native kids) appreciate the importance of their history and culture. https://t.co/f9zO1h4OBJ

I ordered a used book off eBay. Opened it up and the Proclamation of 1763 map page was bookmarked by a note some, I guess, thirsty girl made on a different book she was reading https://t.co/U9mwXmY80x

The Gateway Arch in Saint Louis sits on the remains of 37 square blocks of African American riverfront residences and businesses that were purposefully bulldozed to build the "monument to progress." https://t.co/peIB3ODMfy

It also sits atop Osage land and glorifies “Manifest Destiny” which robbed Native Americans of their lands and lives! https://t.co/7YdGuyI0F6

It’s crazy that the influence of these Western wildfires can carry so far. It’s definitely hazy in Tulsa today. https://t.co/3C27hgL7y9

Another way White people robbed Native Americans was by stealing their likeness—like this of my great great great grandpa Chief White Eagle–to peddle consumer products, like this postcard. They shared none of the profit with him or any other Native. Their greed came in many forms https://t.co/0QzGZj5UKi

Attorney ⁦@brettachapman⁩ talks to me about the quest to have Standing Bear’s Tomahawk returned to the Ponca community. Learn why moral rights are as important as legal rights. https://t.co/oL1ctPS6yR

When Native Americans make a big deal out of mascots and racist depictions in movies, it’s because it matters. These shape the public perception of Natives and it’s all wrong. Often times, it devalues Native life—like this video of Bugs Bunny killing Natives and keeping score https://t.co/ZmZT9So7gl

Its great the ignored history of the government’s abuse of Native American kids at boarding schools is getting light. These places were often traumatic to many families and I bet every Native has a grandma or relative who has talked about the experience. https://t.co/lCf1el0tsL

This is true. Nothing makes Arlington National Cemetery any more or less sacred than Native American burial sites. The only difference between the two is the perception that centers White culture and values above all. That’s the wrong perspective to have on things. https://t.co/NYbqbrOSVS
