SHATTER/// is an anti-colonial ceremonial intervention through waves of abstract sonic reckoning and destructive catharsis: SHATTER/// is an extractive performance decimating the primitive settler colonizer hyper-romanticized imaginary notions of Indigenous culture/peoples and racist appropriative conditioning inherent in the settler colonial project: SHATTER/// is a flower blooming amidst a barren landscape covered in the shit of FAILING and rotting american culture: SHATTER/// is the aftermath of destruction: an accumulation of dishonorable Indigenous stereotypes: an extraction of non-consensual desire:

SHATTER/// is a refusal to perform the assimilated oppressed and powerless citizen of foreign (un)civilizations: a betrayal against genocidal agendas that concoct simulated realities to dodge accountability or enact proper reparations for all living and thriving Indigenous tribes:

SHATTER is a resistance to cis hetero supremacy: a refusal to further internalize the trauma shame and anger through the waves of colonial warfare that is still happening today – even as you read this: SHATTER/// is a cosmic seedling dependent on the nurturing of Indigenous Trans Queer 2Spirit kinship: SHATTER/// is dedicated to ancestral Indigenous rebellion and ceremonial healing:
