Capitalist and colonial relations exploit peoples and land. A western philosophy enforces a binary separating people from land, but for many Indigenous cultures and communities, people and land are one in the same. Multiple forms of colonial, capitalist and heterosexist exploitation of people/land has commodified and made resources out of peoples/lands. To decolonize is to rematriate lands/waters and to break down the foundations of the nation-state: the military, which both pollutes and violently maintains imperial/colonial/extractive relations over people and resources, borders, prisons, education. To restore life and value the dignified relationship among peoples/lands is to take back the lands/waters that have been distanced from our communities in service of capital. To rematriate is to nurture a sacred relationship among original caretakers of the lands through non-patriarchal roles and leadership. To defend autonomy is to honor those who still live and thrive on their ancestral territories and who continue to defend their autonomy in the face of encroaching theft. Land back.
