Thanks Nettle, this is super useful! i really appreciate your work on taking the comments into a more productive direction.

For me, the issue is that becoming part of the land, ceasing to be "white" in the ways you describe, can't be something that someone just decides to do one day. It's a generational process, and it needs a fabric of community, a culture, that supports people living in a profoundly different way.

This is what indigenous people have much more of than "white" people, and one reason why it's so important to prioritize indigenous liberation. For all of us! Because whatever earth cultures "settlers" create, "after the rev" or right here and now, we are going to have to learn a heck of a lot from indigenous folks, and will only be able to grow through strong links of mutual aid.
