If you live in Oregon or Washington you may consider yourself as living in the Northwest or more specifically Oregon or Washington.
The Cascades run from through Oregon, Washington and Canada. Cascadia, used in certain contexts, is quite fashionable among many in the so-called the activist communities. It's like when people call Mt. Hood Wy'East.
1) Is it a way of ignoring the established borders and eliminating the sovereignty of the United States and Canada?
2) Does it marginalize and divide people from all over the Northwest and British Columbia?
3) Is "Cascadia" the start of next region similiar to the movement "State of Jefferson"?
4) Is it a code phrase used to acknowledge that white people stole this region from indigenous people?
