About us

Our works seeks to enhance the dignity and quality of life for communities of color

Our history

The Indian Problem is a continuation of the Indigenous resistance that has existed since the first contact was made with European colonizers who invaded our continent.

Anti-Oppression Training

We must challenge supremacist practices which marginalize, exclude or de-humanize others.  Privilege, like power can be used for positive purposes but should be used with awareness and care.

Anti-Racism Training

The fabric of racism is inextricably woven and constructed into the founding principles of the United States. Racism was done and it can be undone through effective anti-racist organizing with, and in accountability to the communities most impacted by racism.

Decolonization Training

We seek to address and confront both the formal and informal colonization methods such as behaviors, ideologies, institutions, policies, and economies that maintain the subjugation or exploitation of Indigenous Peoples, lands and resources.

Our work

Our work centers around responding to frontline community members facing an impending/immediate crisis who require creative resistance art production, direct action strategies, communications and media outreach training.

Digital Strategy

Bypassing “normal” political channels to raise public awareness about an institution, program or injustice.

Anti-Oppression Training

Engaging useful concepts, actions, and intellectual frameworks that create Indigenous self-determination.

Creative Resistance Art

Using arts, literature and traditional Indigenous practices to challenge and end injustice on our continent.

Abolitionism Training

We seek to end of the institution of slavery and had existed in one form or another since colonial times.

Social Justice Training

Creation of growing selections of training and teaching resources related to diversity, inclusion, and social justice.

Direct Action Strategy

Bypassing “normal” political channels to raise public awareness about an institution, program or injustice.

Our collective

The result of continual colonization, genocidal and racist campaigns has been unsuccessful because as Indigenous people, we still continue to thrive. The colonizers, “Indian Problem” has never gone away though it takes and has taken many forms, this collective being one of them.
