With thousands of remains of Indigenous children recently uncovered in mass graves at residential schools in “Canada,” collective Indigenous rage has been sparked to address the brutal legacy of colonial schools. In this show we share our personal experiences, and discuss how we cannot address the brutal horrors of assimilation through forced education without facing how its colonial legacy continues to fulfill its vicious objectives.
Content warning: Boarding/residential schools, sexual violence.

No Thanks, No Giving! Indigenous Action Yearly Fundraiser (online)
Support Indigenous radical autonomous, anti-capitalist, anti-colonial organizing & agitation!
COLONIZERS GOTTA PAY! SMASH THE NON-PROFIT CAPITALIST
Donate to Indigenous Action:
This is our yearly call for material support for Indigenous Action activities & donation drive for Táala Hooghan infoshop unsheltered support & operational expenses.
Indigenous Action (IA/originally Indigenous Action Media) was founded on August 25th, 2001 to provide strategic communications and direct action support for Indigenous sacred lands defense. We are a volunteer-run radical autonomous crew of anti-colonial & anti-capitalist Indigenous trouble makers & propagandists.
We generally are comprised of designers, artists, writers & frontline agitators that work together on a project by project basis (some long-term some short) for liberation for Mother Earth and all her beings. We’ve organized hundreds of actions, marches, banner drops, workshops, conferences, benefits, & much more. 100% of all proceeds directly support radical Indigenous organizing. Everything we do is based on community support. We don’t rely on grants. We’re all in for total liberation.
Some (not all) active projects & organizing we’re currently directly involved with:
- IA Podcast+ Táala Hooghan Infoshop
- Ongoing local/regional frontline support:
- Resource/supply distro, bail, jail support
- Graphic & web support for a dozen
current Indigenous-led campaigns.
Some larger yearly expenses we need immediate support for:
- Táala Hooghan taxes & utilities (the space has been free to use by KMA for 3 years):
- Regional supply distro for Indigenous unsheltered relatives: $1,000-$3,000, we also maintain funds for emergency hotels.
- Anti-state repression + DA support: $3,000+ varies, but we maintain an ongoing bail fund & frontline resource support.
