Crushing Colonialism was founded and operated by Indigenous people working in a variety of storytelling fields across the world. We work to increase the pay and employment of Indigenous storytellers while also promoting their work, providing funding for media and arts projects, and increasing access to professional representation.
Crushing Colonialism’s mission is to connect with and uplift Indigenous creatives, influencers, and community leaders on a community level about community issues like disability justice, women’s rights, 2LGBTQIA+ equity, employment and wage equality, and key issues that directly affect our marginalized Indigenous communities. Indigenous peoples and nations are rooted in community and sharing, as well as storytelling. The idea of individualism and possessions are a colonial construct. Crushing Colonialism’s work is driven by the work done within communities and it supports those who bring awareness and make positive impacts. In doing this we control our narratives in order to crush colonialism.
Decolonized Beatz Indigenous World Pride 2025 is a two-week, queer Indigenous-led event taking place in Washington, DC that celebrates the work of 2LGBTQIA+ Native and Indigenous storytellers, artists, and performers including Indigenous women, AfroIndigenous, and disabled Indigenous people.
