An Indigenous Cyberpunk Manifesto

NIGHT SPIDERWEB by Sarah Klockars-Clauser

Gibson constructed the console cowboy, but we are the digital Natives. We are the original Natives of the web, the tech-savvy NDNs weaving in and out of discussion threads, the warriors with keyboards who carry sparks into cyberspace. We are the coders who create sovereign virtual worlds, the digital code talkers who braid Indigenous tongues into networks of resistance. We’ve navigated the webs of branching nodes since time immemorial—before kubernētēs became cybernetics and before punk was ponk. Our digital allies boost our signals. We are Indigenous cyberpunks.
