Dear tumblr folks

My name is Ryan (they/them/their) and I am a queer, Indigenous artist. I am Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe and an aspiring artist and fashion photographer. I am currently fundraising so I will have the opportunity to attend the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe in the fall. 

Finances have been the biggest struggle so far. a lot of my money went to an institution that was neither culturally competent or supportive towards my needs as a native artist. A lot of my work was misidentified with the wrong cultures, I was told I should include more “headdresses” in my work. So I need to go to IAIA because it will give me the education I crave, need, deserve, and clearly earned through 3 years of struggling at another university that could not and did not provide the tools for me to succeed. 

This is a space that is focused on the art i want to bring and will allow me the opportunities and the work spaces to grow and become a better artist. 

Please consider donating and help this 2 spirit individual successfully travel to and occupy a space that was created for me and will provide the necessary support. 

All funding will go to cover transportation.

Thanks everyone for helping me get the word out there! I currently have $215 raised! That’s almost 36% of the final total!! I am eternally grateful for those who have donated and given support! 

I just received a message that the link may not be working for my gofundme page! Here’s the link again, and it is also fixed on the main post!

Anonymous asked: Hey. I saw your link to raise money to move to New Mexico. Congratulations and good luck! But I just wanted to tell you that the actual link to the gofundme page doesn't seem to display on dashboards. Or at least, it didn't on mine. The other links are all present, but since that's probably the most important one, you should see if you can fix that. Again, good luck.

Thanks so much for letting me know! I know if you copy and paste the link into the URL it should take you there, but I will definitely fix the link right now. Thanks again niijii!!

Make Love to Rage the devastatingly femme book of poetry by Morgan Robyn Collado is finally available for download and purchase.
From the back of the book:

This collection of poetry is a cleansing and transformative journey that takes us from rage to love with a depth of emotion and beauty in words that is breathtaking. The first part, ‘Rage,’ communicates the rage and anger caused by injustice, in immediate and visceral ways. The transition into ‘Making’ has all the mess and beauty inherent in the seasons of autumn and spring. After the rage, after the making, we have ‘Love.’ And the sweetness, caring, and compassion of these poems is a soothing balm after the rage. Yet, it also underscores that deep love, more than anything, fuels rage over injustice.

You won’t regret buying this book of poetry!

oh my goodness! My book is finally available for purchase online! So do the thing!

I purchased this book at the Allied Media Conference this year and I  definitely recommend! It was such a beautiful read.

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.

Aaliyah Biopic Casts New Lead Actress
Taking the place of Disney actress/singer Zendaya Coleman (who dropped out shortly after being casted) is Alexandra Shipp. A young actress best known for her role on Nickelodeon’s House of Anubis, and has made appearances on MTV’s Awkward and Showtime’s Ray Donavan. Now with the new leading role set in place, production is set to resume this summer with Aaliyah: Princess of R&amp;B scheduled for a fall premiere on Lifetime. (Credit Shake, 2dbz)

She ain’t no better a selection that Zendaya lol

Aaliyah family still don’t want the movie tho

Right. And they still gonna do it.

she look more like zoe kravitz lol

They keep going out of their way to get some mixed girl to play her.

^Aaliyah looked like a mixed black girl tho so…yeah any girl they pick will look like this.You want a light skinned long haired actress you’ll end up with a bunch of biracial bitties in ur casting.
The movie shouldn’t be getting made for the simple fact that her fam isn’t behind it.

Aaliyah wasn’t mixed tho and there was nothing racially ambiguous about her. She was a brown skinned black woman and if you’re implying that every girl that favors her somewhat needs to be mixed or racially ambiguous that isn’t ok. There are tons of brown skin black women walking around that can play her. But bottom line her mamma said no.

was it the perm that made her “look mixed” im not following

…what the fuck aaliyah looked mixed…um not at all? she’s at least as brown as meand her fucking family don’t want the videonot going to see it and i hope this bitch break her leg on set

lmao **
making a biopic out of respect (attn: Wendy Wiliams), when the family of the deceased doesn&#8217;t want it, doesn&#8217;t make it respectful. Even the person you originally picked dropped out for apparent &#8220;moral reasons&#8221;. Respect their decision and stop trying to produce a movie no one is going to watch because they know better.
