Simon Moya-Smith, a freelance journalist and professor at the University of Colorado Denver, insisted that anti-homosexuality and anti-abortion laws did not exist among indigenous people “before white people”.
The Columbia Journalism alum suggested that it was whites who introduced anti-homosexuality and anti-abortion efforts after invading indigenous lands.
“Before white people came to this land, there were no prisons, no homelessness, no laws against homosexuality or abortion. For thousands of years, indigenous peoples insisted that we need health, housing, the freedom to love what you love and Mother Earth. . She doesn’t need us,” Moya- Smith tweeted.
Some social media users, however, pointed out that indigenous tribes were fighting each other and how most tribes have not legalized gay marriage.

National Review staffer Nate Hochman wrote, linking to a report, “Tribal lands are some of the last places in America where gay marriage is not legal. Obergefell legalized it in the rest of the country, but less than 10% of the 500+ tribes have done the same. From a 2015 article about the Navajo Nation, where gay marriage remains illegal to this day.’
“You’re in the culture. Get help,” said Townhall.com columnist Scott Morefield.
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, wrote: “I assume this is a joke, but you never know.”
“This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever read,” said reporter Ian Miles Cheong.
“Tribal warfare. Lawlessness. Starvation. Death by exposure. By wildlife predation. Life expectancy around 30. Yeah, it was paradise,” Western Standard columnist Cory Morgan joked.

While Moya-Smith did not respond to the tweet, she did offer another tweet on Saturday about Native American land.
Moya-Smith wrote, “Even where you live in North America, you live on stolen native land.

He has previously criticized the portrayal of Native Americans in pop culture.
“Paranormal reality show: ‘Here we are, in a house apparently built on a Native American burial ground,'” Moya-Smith wrote Friday. “Translated: ‘We’re going to blame the shit our ancestors did on the Indians’.”
On February 23rd, he wrote: “A black family ran away from a plantation. They met a native camp and were welcomed/inducted into the tribe. Later, a group of white men appeared. ‘You have our property,’ they said. ‘Someone has he stolen the saddle?’ asked a warrior. Then a battle. My old man told me this story.”
“White people appropriated the eagle symbol from indigenous nations. They also made it the symbol of a nation they ‘built’ on stolen land. Meanwhile, the @Chiefs enjoy racist chants. If the @NFL really wants it. ‘End Racism’, ban steak and change the name,” Moya-Smith wrote on Feb. 2 about the Kansas City Chiefs.
