"In the 400 year history of indigenous confrontation no indìgenous person has ever thrown a molotov cocktail. A mollie just is not and does not have a part in indigenous diplomacy"

I'm assuming this is sarcasm, because of course mollies have been used by indigenous people.

That does bring up a point that ties to the article this is all about originally: indigenous communities and direct actions generally have pretty strong means by which to make shared decisions about what tactics are appropriate to a situation, and then try to ensure that those involved work with that or go somewhere else. This has been a point of conflict in the past with the more egoist, individualist anarchist approach.

Do those that criticize the Rhythm and Ritual piece for trying to come up with some way of working through streets tactics in a shared way, also see indigenous direct actions (like the massive pipeline actions last year) as dangerous and controlling?
