This is Buffalo Calf Road Woman, the Cheyenne woman who struck the blow that knocked Custer (also known as the coward Wanker Custerson of the United States of Colonize the Shit Out of America) off his horse before he was killed at the Battle of Little Big Horn.
She was also instrumental in securing victory for the Sioux and Cheyenne at the Battle of Rosebud, a battle known among the Cheyenne as ‘the battle where the brave sister saved her brother’.

Latino Civil Rights Figures: Luisa Moreno
By Victoria Cepeda
“Some of her biggest accomplishments were:
In 1930, she unionized Blacks and Latina cigar rollers and other  tobacco workers in Florida. She also helped unionize sugar cane workers  in Louisiana, Tuna canneries in California and beets
Was the first woman, and Latina, to be elected member to the California Congress of Industrial Organizations, CIO.
She was an international representative of UCAPAWA [United Cannery Agricultural Packing, and Allied Workers of America.
Due to her organized labor activities and former membership of the U.S. Communist Party,  her prominence was overshadowed and the US government declared Luisa  Moreno a threat. She was eventually tried and underwent various  immigration battles.  She left the U.S for for Mexico, then went on to  Cuba and then back to the U.S.  Through her activism she brought  awareness and social justice to many Latinos in an era where it was  unimaginable to conceive the concept of labor law equality.”

PJ Harvey - On Battleship Hill

"Cruel nature has won again." I could listen to this album all day.

July 15, 2011

This is Harvey (formerly known as Stella, pre-discovery of balls). I found him and his two brothers when they were about a week old. They’re now 4 months old.

About a month ago, Harvey started trying to suckle on my ear. It was funny at first, but now it’s annoying. But when I push him away? He keeps suckling…the air.
