AA&M Inspirations & Bibliography

This page is a space for us to honor all that have inspired our work, from the distant past, to this present, and with some futurism mixed in for good measure.

To start, we want to honor the many native peoples whose stolen land we inhabit and who inspire us directly and through their impact on this planet and our communities. We honor the multiplicity of these peoples, cultures, and communities even as we speak of them together. This honoring is an active commitment to lift up indigenous people and communities in our work, and to actively decolonize our own work. We specifically lift up the names of the tribes on whose stolen land we are consistently engaged with this work: In San Francisco, CA the Muwekma and Raymutush Ohlone; in New Orleans, LA the Chitimacha, Choctaw, Houma, and Nachez; in Austin, TX (website host) the Coahuiltecan, Comanche, Sana, Lipan Apache, Tonkawa, and Jumanos.

You’ll find more resources below for folks who aren’t indigenous and wish to act in allyship.
