Land Back’s vision of a fairer future


I first heard about Land Back magazine when the lead editor, Kailea Loften, popped up in our Discord server to introduce what she was doing. We had a quick chat about her mission to produce a print magazine representing the land back movement across North America, and I was excited to receive a copy of the second issue at the end of last year.

It’s an impressive piece of work, covering a wide range of subject matter, from art and poetry through to cold, hard, policy making and the practicalities of grassroots organisation. And the result is calmly and firmly persuasive – land back and reparations are often presented as controversial subjects, but Land Back’s editorial position removes that angle altogether. It acknowledges Indigenous people’s struggles in fighting against hundreds of years of exploitation and inequality, but it leaves no doubt that the fight will be won, and no question that land back will form a key part of that.

I hope the video above gives a sense of the energy and optimism running through the magazine, and if this looks interesting I hope you’ll be able to track down a copy so you can see it for yourself.
