Instead of donating to non-profits with massive budgets and uncritically buying from Indigenous capitalists, how about providing support for these Indigenous projects & people that are incredibly resourceful and do powerful work with very little financial support? This is an opportunity to be part of and grow these necessary efforts beyond #givingtuesday.
While some of these folx or projects aren’t explicitly anti-capitalist, we recognize that often times much of what they do is out of pocket and that they always put more in than they are supported or recognized for.
