100% of the proceeds donated to Indigenous Peoples Day MA, organized by the United American Indians of New England (UAINE). UAINE is a Native-led organization of Native people and supporters who fight back against racism and support Indigenous struggles throughout the Americas, strongly believing that we must support others in struggle, particularly other communities of color, the LGBTQ community, and the disabled community. They state: "Indigenous Peoples Day is about more than a name change; it’s a refusal to allow the genocide of millions of Indigenous peoples to go unnoticed, and a demand for recognition of Indigenous humanity. Recognizing this day in place of what’s currently known as “Columbus Day” is a way to correct false histories, honor Indigenous peoples, and begin to correct some of the countless wrongs committed against Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (what’s now known as the Americas)."
Inspired by the phrase spoken by Mahtowin Munro during the Confronting Colonial Myths in Boston’s Public Space conversation, "It's like a cat spraying to mark his territory. So you have these colonial settlers who are just marking their territory, and they're marking their territory as white space."
