About Me
Mixed-blood vegan pagan anarchist bibliophile mom with a strong interest in social sciences, material culture, the gift economy, archaeomythology, matricentric cultures, attachment parenting, the sociology of work, language, indigenous cultures, civil rights, feminism, geography, ecology, conservation, animal rights, place, community, and spirituality (goddess worship, animism, and other anciently-rooted religions).

Most species are evolved to work with their environment and occupy a niche within biodiversity (or they were, anyway, before humans started facilitating massive bioinvasion), and I'm interested in why and how so many modern humans resist this and attempt to turn everything either into humans or to human use, and how our species can get back to having an ecological niche like a normal, respectable species.

I have a particular interest in primarily plant-gathering or primarily horticultural egalitarian matrifocal cultures in which communally-oriented values and community-shared or extended-family attachment parenting are strong. Kyriarchy/patriarchy is not and was not universal, regardless of what those indoctrinated into its institutional beliefs attempt to argue. There are models for a healthy way to live if we seek them out. The question then becomes how to apply that information to whatever situation we happen to be in.

My partner and I both share interests in mixed martial arts and muay thai boxing, gathering wild edibles, organic gardening, permaculture, feminism, Fat Acceptance, fiber arts, ecological and alternative building, learning languages, pagan religions, attachment parenting, natural childbirth, natural health, natural living, and adoption. We have a particular interest in Crow Indian (Apsaalooke), Cherokee (Tsalagi), and Saponi culture because those are our particular Native heritages. We are both mixed blood, so we are also interested in learning more about other parts of our shared and individual backgrounds and the history, prehistory, and traditional religions of those regions and cultures, as well as others which do not personally relate to us both for general interest and specifically because we may adopt and want to be able to teach the child about their cultural heritage. We are deeply interested in veganism and animal rights and would like to operate an animal sanctuary in the future.

I am new here, so I am probably going to be slowly adding my large library and wishlist.
