The eighth issue of Black Seed (a journal of indigenous anarchy) is now available. Find it at Little Black Cart.
The Black Seed that was almost finished before the death of the main editor and the onslaught of covid19, this issue, perhaps the last, of this journal, now covers even more territory in its 36 pages. Two obituaries for Aragorn!, two report backs on the Indigenous Anarchist Conference in 2019, part 2 of a conversation with the Anpoa Duta collective, a scathing anonymous piece called Rethinking the Apocalypse, on covid19 and so much more, Aragorn!’s essay, Locating an Indigenous Anarchism, which was originally planned to go in because it was the basis of his talk at the IAC, and is now included for that and other reasons, Your Loneliness is a Public Health Problem, and a special guest appearance from Skoden, who brings us Stand-up to be Performed at the Next Disaster (a pre-covid19 piece, believe it or not). Also substantive pieces on continuing colonization in the face of Dineh suffering from C-19, a timely one on voting, and two mixed artists talking to each other about what that can mean. Dense and rich.

This was the first issue of black seed I read and introduced me to Aragorn and his projects. I was very sad to hear that it may be the last as I was just uncovering it. Is there anything people could do, in person or online, to help the project continue?
Seems unlikely. It’s possible that some people who were connected towards the end might want to continue in the trajectory, but without a! and his connections and vision, will inevitably be pretty different.
If such a new project *does* start up, likely it will be announced on places like anarchistnews.org. So that’s one place to keep an eye on.
