I’ve been watching the Christmas episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and I highly recommend it. What I’ve learned so far is that extravagant decorations are crucial for ringing in holiday cheer, and it is for this reason that I’ve decided “pink” will be the theme of my own decorations. And now, onto your links for the first week of December:   

  • The Mama Bear Clan, lead by Indigenous women, patrol the streets of Winnipeg, looking after people by giving out food and blankets, picking up needles, and being a presence on Main Street.  
  • If you haven’t already, watch the stop-motion video for Leanne Betasamosake Simpson’s “How To Steal A Canoe” made by Amanda Strong.
  • You can read about one of the ways the Native Youth Sexual Health Network uses beading to facilitate conversations about sex here and you can help fund their radical work here.

  • In one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve read on Barry Jenkin’s Moonlight, Ashon Crawley writes about the ways names enable our own personalized fictions and about the film’s Baldwinian cinematic, “how each of the character phases—Little, Chiron, Black—look out into the world and with such looking, hear and feel and taste and smell it, how that looking is a synaesthetic experience,” in Fictioning Names.
