Aaaaaah fuck me, not-at-all-happy anniversary to this post, gosh I wish I could unpin it. Quarantine is technically over but the pandemic is relentless.
@pizza I'm gona blow your mind with this one, but did you know they made the strip from New Vegas in real life??
I'm floored, because DuoLingo launched a beta for Navajo!
It's honestly making me a little emotional, because my family never inherited our ancestral language. My grandfather's generation were taken from their families and forced into indian boarding schools where they beat you for practicing your culture.
Seeing an indigenous language preserved in a mainstream tool is incredible.
PDX cops murder yet another person, live stream
The Portland police just shot and killed yet another person, this time a man experiencing a mental health crisis (based on initial eye witness reports). It sounds like he was complying with police and then they shot him. At least one witness reported that they waited for him to die before calling an ambulance.
If you’re local, it’s at Lents Park, 92nd and Holgate. People are gathering now, there’s a streamer here: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10217028891348426&id=1651796511
