Human Colonization
[Scene: Beth, age 12, is practicing a Slides presentation on the ecosystems of wetlands...]
Beth: [clicks to next slide] "Now, before human colonization, wetlands in the United States accounted for...."
Me: "Hold up. /Human/ colonization?"
Beth: "Yeah."
Me: "You mean, before the Europeans?"
Beth: "Yeah...?"
Me: "There were humans here a long time before white people."
Beth: "I mean before humans /colonized/ it and messed up the wetlands."
Me: "I'm pretty sure Native Americans lived here for thousands and thousands of years without messing up the wetlands. Don't you mean 'before European colonization'? Otherwise it sounds kind of racist."
Beth: "OK, OK, I mean: before humans tried to colonize /wetlands/ specifically. I don't think Native Americans did that. They didn't try to turn swamps into farmland or towns or anything like that. They had towns and stuff, just not on top of wetlands."
Me: "Oh. I see your angle. But there's a lot of heavy history wrapped up in the word 'colonization'. I still think 'before European colonization' would work. Or 'before human conversion of wetlands'. Something more specific."
Beth: "Dad, this is just a middle school science class. Nobody's even going to be listening to me."
Me: "So? You'll be listening to yourself. Better to think about this now than when you're older and it's harder to care."

“The City We Became” by N.K. Jemisin
Description: Every city has a soul. Some are as ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York City? She's got five. But every city also has a dark side. A roiling, ancient evil stirs beneath the earth, threatening to destroy the city and her five protectors unless they can come together and stop it once and for all.
Genre: Fantasy Length: 437 TW(s): White Supremacy, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, misogyny, attempted sexual assault, antisemitism, violence, slurs, police brutality, homelessness

“Although situated primarily in Southern California, Trafzer’s contribution to the history of health care for American Indians / Alaska Natives should be on the bookshelves of many health-care providers serving Native populations. Trafzer’s book reminds us that factors that contributed to health disparities of yesterday for many American Indian and Alaska Native communities continue today. Today, causes of death are less driven by cycles of infectious diseases but by poverty, and limited access to quality health care remains challenging and persistent.”
