As Steven Newcomb notes at Indian Country Today, the Independence Day holiday in the United States is really a celebration of domination. The militaristic theme to the holiday is perhaps so obvious that it is not discussed, but for the nations and peoples who suffered loss of independence and freedom due to that domination, it is a painful reminder of ongoing cruelties based on White Christian Nationalism.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
