About this Episode

Do you love dreamcatchers? That’s great! Do you know which First Nations people they originate from? Because it’s not an “Indian” thing; it’s an Ojibwe thing. In this episode, Anishinaabe (Ojibwe/Chippewa) host Sofia Syntaxx dishes about dreamcatchers, what they mean, and what the appropriate way for non-Native people to use them is. (HINT: Definitely don’t buy a mass produced one!) Hear the shocking reason why this podcast was almost never made when Sofia shares a dramatic reading of racist rants she’s been on the receiving end of. Digressions include our new theme song written and performed by Marcusworx, slacktivism, the importance of dreams, and Franchesca Ramsey. Sofia also calls us in to examine instances of cultural appropriation outside of indigenous cultures, including how natural black hair at work became a civil rights issue. Learn the meaning of the Anishinaabemowin word “asabikeshiinh.” Support the show (paypal.me/SofiaSyntaxx)! Join us on Patreon! Do you want to participate?
