I'd like to remind people that many here are anonymous and in their anonymity they remain humble. We are a working community with individuals from all over the world. Indigenous Peoples are not limited to North America. Please consider that some folks you work with may be indigenous or highly respected accomplices in other parts of the world.

The Do's and Don'ts of Being a Good Ally

Good thing you quoted it all. The original links say "This journal has been deleted and purged."

However, it was reposted a couple of places, this one with comments and without annoying ads:

And if you read the "Dos and Don'ts" links above, you'll eventually get to this, but I'm adding a direct link here, as well:
White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack http://www.antiracistalliance.com/Unpacking.html
"Daily effects of white privilege.  Elusive and fugitive.  Earned strength, unearned power."

"Not Found — The requested URL was not found on this server."

It can be found at numerous other sites. I found this article first:
