Land Taxes to Benefit Indigenous Communities

“How can we make a land tax to benefit indigenous communities?”

If you are living in stolen indigenous land like the U.S, Canada, or Australia, you are benefiting from violent settler-colonialism. To assist and help repair the damage done to the local indigenous community, a land-tax can be paid that directly goes to them. An example can be found in the voluntary Shuumi Land Tax for non-indigenous individuals living on traditional Lisjan Ohlone territory (the modern-day Eastern San Francisco Bay). This is how to use Land Taxes to Benefit Indigenous Communities.
