During the month of June, a politically-connected and well-funded radical LGBTQ activist organization plans to double-down in pushing queer dogma among the Alaska Native community.

Native Movement formed in 2003 as a nonprofit to promote Marxist ideas about wealth and land redistribution, the dismantling private property ownership and LGBTQ ideology in Native communities. It also pushes extreme environmentalist views such as the Green New Deal, as well as critical race theory, while attacking traditional views of human sexuality.

For upcoming “Pride Month” the organization plans to host movie screenings in Nome and Fairbanks to celebrate the first openly transgender “woman” to complete the Iditarod. The film, “DEAR KIN,” is a video series that highlights various Indigenous LGBTQ2S+ peoples and identities.

The group will also host a “Queer Masculinities Gathering,” “Diversity in the OUTdoors Solstice Party,” and drag story hour.

In 2021, Native Movement helped organize an explicit drag queen show for toddlers and children at the Alaska Native Heritage Center, and also premiered a film at the Anchorage Museum with the goal of introducing LGBTQ themes into traditional Alaska Native cultures.

Last year, the group hired an organizer whose main duties are to utilize Alaska Native storytelling traditions to promote “intersectionality, especially LGBTQ2S and Indigenous identities.”

The multi-million-dollar non-profit is supported by governmental and private grants, becoming one of the leading organizations working to infiltrate traditional Alaska Native communities with leftist notions of family, sexual identity, abortion and critical race theory.

On May 12, Native Movement Board Member Alannah Hurley – who also serves as the Executive Director of the United Tribes of Bristol Bay – was invited to the White House by President Joe Biden to celebrate the president’s controversial environmental policies in Alaska.

  • AKFish says:

    The native elders should shame this “Native Movement” and state that Alaska Native storytelling traditions to promote “intersectionality, especially LGBTQ2S and Indigenous identities.” is wrong and disrepectful to Alaska Natives.

  • Chuck Anziulewicz says:

    That’s a very strange illustration at the top of the commentary. Is it AI-generated?

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      I see what looks like a cartoonized (?) layered picture with a native dancer with dancing fans in her hands, a group of people, and an alphabet soup group flag. I could do this without using AI. AI is evil.

    • River says:

      Digital .So what.

  • Lucinda says:

    Why the heck can’t you Christians just chill? Why must you force your restricted views of human behavior and sexuality on the rest of us? Don’t like drag shows? Don’t attend. Don’t like sex education books for your children? Avoid them.

    Stick to your own beliefs and stay the hell out of my life.

    • Tamra Nygaard says:

      As far as I can tell, Lucy, nobody from here is in your life. You seem to be the one coming here to stir the pot. What has the Church, any church, ever forced you do or say? Perhaps you need to step back a bit and determine where your feelings end and my rights as a citizen practicing my religion, something protected by the Constitution, begin.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Then quit hanging out on this website Lucinda. Why torture yourself this way?

    • Bob says:

      You are obviously a very confused and unhappy individual. You would have a much brighter outlook if you would ditch your liberal views.

    • Michael P Hughes says:

      Because we love you and want the best for you.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    It’s all about the democrat vote,
    now let’s add one more evil thing to the villages LGBTQ themes.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      I researched Native Movement. Their work is based upon a committment to the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing. Explains a lot about the group!

      • Lucinda says:

        Here are their values:

        #1 Be Inclusive
        If we hope to achieve just societies that include all people in decision-making and assure that all people have an equitable share of the wealth and the work of this world, then we must work to build that kind of inclusiveness into our own movement in order to develop alternative policies and institutions to the treaties policies under neo- liberalism.
        This requires more than tokenism, it cannot be achieved without diversity at the planning table, in staffing, and in coordination. It may delay achievement of other important goals, it will require discussion, hard work, patience, and advance planning. It may involve conflict, but through this conflict, we can learn better ways of working together. It’s about building alternative institutions, movement building, and not compromising out in order to be accepted into the anti-globalization club.
        #2 Emphasis on Bottom-Up Organizing
        To succeed, it is important to reach out into new constituencies, and to reach within all levels of leadership and membership base of the organizations that are already involved in our networks. We must be continually building and strengthening a base which provides our credibility, our strategies, mobilizations, leadership development, and the energy for the work we must do daily.
        #3 Let People Speak for Themselves
        We must be sure that relevant voices of people directly affected are heard. Ways must be provided for spokespersons to represent and be responsible to the affected constituencies. It is important for organizations to clarify their roles, and who they represent, and to assure accountability within our structures.
        #4 Work Together In Solidarity and Mutuality
        Groups working on similar issues with compatible visions should consciously act in solidarity, mutuality and support each other’s work. In the long run, a more significant step is to incorporate the goals and values of other groups with your own work, in order to build strong relationships. For instance, in the long run, it is more important that labor unions and community economic development projects include the issue of environmental sustainability in their own strategies, rather than just lending support to the environmental organizations. So communications, strategies and resource sharing is critical, to help us see our connections and build on these.
        #5 Build Just Relationships Among Ourselves
        We need to treat each other with justice and respect, both on an individual and an organizational level, in this country and across borders. Defining and developing “just relationships” will be a process that won’t happen overnight. It must include clarity about decision-making, sharing strategies, and resource distribution. There are clearly many skills necessary to succeed, and we need to determine the ways for those with different skills to coordinate and be accountable to one another.
        #6 Commitment to Self-Transformation
        As we change societies, we must change from operating on the mode of individualism to community-centeredness. We must “walk our talk.” We must be the values that we say we’re struggling for and we must be justice, be peace, be community.

        Friend, what bothers you about them?

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Lucinda, I did not say that there was anything about them that “bothers me.” I just said that it explains a lot about the group.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    This is tragic. The Marxist evil alphabet agenda hijacks and invades everything they can to perpetuate their lies for power and control. Gender dysphoria has never ever part of early native culture.

    • Chuck Anziulewicz says:

      Gender dysphoria has been always been a part of ALL cultures.

      • Aunt Sally says:

        So has botulism, Chuck, and proper maintenance of civilization requires recognition of it as a toxic element we should strive to minimize exposure to. Stay away from kids, Chuck.

  • Numec12 says:

    DemonCrats,MKUltra, CIA etc. this is all per plan corrupting all culture’s in an Evil experiment for wold domination.

  • Andy says:

    How evil. Pray to end LGBTQ2S.

  • Lucinda says:

    Good gawd. If you aren’t into LGTB stuff, quit obsessing over it. Never seen a group so interested in other people’s sexuality.

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      Stop pushing your sickness and keep your LGTB stuff to yourself.
      Then we’ll stop talk about it.

      • Lucinda says:

        I’m not pushing anything sex-wise. Just wish your religious beliefs didn’t affect others.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Lucinda, yet, you are trying to PUSH your beliefs and force others to ADOPT your beliefs and we are supposed to accept this? No, we are not going along with your demands for perversion.

    • Bob says:

      I guess you are part of the LBGTFYU movement.

  • Tamra Nygaard says:

    There is nothing in tribal culture that supports this marxist homosexual nonsense. As I recall, the last time they tried this crap they were told to leave the venue. Why do perverts always think their “needs” triumph over thousands of years of received wisdom? They are worst than whiny teenagers.

  • Shelia says:

    This is both tragic and evil. But Numec12 and Elizabeth Henry are both correct. If Native Movement succeeds, some of the best cultures to survive hundreds of years of onslaught by western Europeans will be erased forever. What a total crime! Surely there has to be push-back by native traditionalists. Time is of the essence.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      How many native traditionalists are there? I have not seen any personally from the Anchorage/Mat-Su area. Would be nice. Seems that the majority of natives are liking the government hand-outs and atta-boys too much to see that they are being led down a path that is going to wipe out their cultures and their lives.

  • James says:

    this ends with the perverts eating Christian babies in a Satanist Church ceremony

  • Christine says:

    Sounds like a great group spreading knowledge and enlightenment about the American value of diversity.

    Anybody opposed to lgbt people existing is a satan-controlled nazi.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Says a lefty who always has to put the blame on others for things that they are actually doing. Thank you for pointing out that you are part of that satan-controlled nazi group.

  • Lucinda says:

    So, Phony : how is the Diverse community forcing you to adopt their beliefs? As you research and contemplate your response to me with your trademark thoroughness and integrity, please include a recognition of the asymptotic influence of Christian nationalism on American intellectual decline. I’ll look for references to Trump and other fascists and the worship of assault weapons over children in your response.
