TW: sexual assault.

One in three Native American women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime; 86% of these sexual assaults are perpetrated by non-native men. In two weeks the United States congress will resume session for a short while before they break - probably until the elections. Please call your representatives and senators and tell them to pass the full VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) which includes ALL provisions for Native American Women. The version of this bill currently sitting in house does not include those provisions for Native women - they have been stripped away. This is an incredibly important bill that has the potential to help the indigenous women of Canada as well. 
Please pass this along.

I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.

My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe.

  • white people: *force their hair to be matted to form what they think are dreadlocks so they can feel ~one with nature~ and go through some bullshit spiritual hippie phase, probably appropriating other cultures too*
  • black people: *manage to have their hair lock with ease in order to keep their natural hair maintained but get criticized for it bc it’s seen as unprofessional and dirty*



This is how we give Praise to a Witch who is really Nailing an Outfitte.

I have a mighty need to expand the knowledge that this gif is from the ballet Giselle, and these are spirits of women who died from broken hearts called wilis - in the ballet, men who get lost in the forest at night are trapped by the wilis and danced to death for doing wrong to women. It’s all quite badass. (with Myrtha, Queen of the Willis in the middle - she’s one cold hearted bitch and I love her.)
