Climate Struggle means supporting Indigineous Struggle 

" Indigenous people are post-apocalyptic. In some cases, we have undergone several apocalypses. For my community alone, it was the destruction of the buffalo herds, the destruction of our animal relatives on the land, the destruction of our animal nations in the nineteenth century, of our river homelands in the twentieth century. I don’t want to universalize that experience; it was very unique to us as nations. But if there is something you can learn from people, it’s what it’s like to live in a post-apocalyptic society."

Sorry for spamming the timeline! After posting I reread the old CW / Topic ( was: Indigenous Struggle is Climate Struggle) and thought it came off as flattening indigenous struggles which I don't know enough about. I'm currently reading about decolonization and indigenous struggles and realizing how they are fundamental for climate justice and and how we should be supportive of those struggles.
