Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – A Tribe Called Geek

“Indigenenerdity for the Geeks at the Powwow.” What more need I tell you? Well, I can reprint what they say about the website:

A Tribe Called Geek is an award-winning media platform for Indigenous Geek Culture and STEM. Dedicated to showcasing and encouraging Indigenous contributions to geek & pop culture as well as STEM fields, ATCG utilizes their website and podcast to discuss native representation or the lack thereof in mainstream geekery with fellow Indigenerds from across Turtle Island.

Just get over there! And be sure to watch their “Who Do You Rep?” video, as well as read their latest posts, “Top 10 Indigenous Reads for the Summer 2018” and “Top 10 Songs by Indigenous Artists You Should Know About.” Sooooo good!

Thank you for your most excellent and most excellently nifty website, fabulous, marvelous, wonderful Indigenerds!

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”)
