Can everyone put their decolonization book rec's below? I would like to compile a list and add some books to my TBR list.

I'll start:

- Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad

- An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

@GreenandBlack Ooh! After I write my next two book reviews I'll read this one!

@wraidd This looks interesting. Just got a copy to read soon. Thank you!

@Hylyx 0_0 How have I never seen this book before? Thank you so much for this rec!!!

@RadioAngel yah! As someone from a "science-y" background, it really helped me see things from another perspective that really explained some things, personally and in general!

@Hylyx I honestly cannot wait to read this one. You may have motivated me to speed through my books reviews for BrontideJournal.

@RadioAngel haha aw! :blush: let us know what you think!

@RadioAngel not *specifically* decolonialist, but Native Southerners by Gregory Smithers presents a really interesting history of southeastern Turtle Island, and presents the horrifying violence of colonization as such—no wishy-washy garbage.

@RadioAngel Just found out about The Fifth Sun, by Camilla Townsend. It's billed as a revolutionary history of the Aztecs and is based on the Nahuatl language Annals,. The Annals were written by Aztecs for a Nahuatl speaking audience, one in which the Spanish were seen as the bloodthirsty savages. This is next on my read list.

@ewankeep Just read the link and Yes! This is definitely going on my list! Thank you!!!

@RadioAngel Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer; talks less of history but a lot about philosophy of decolonization. An excellent intro book too
