“Conquered, Not Stolen” is an anti-Indigenous meme that celebrate the colonial system implemented and genocide perpetrated by European settlers. The phrase proposes land should belong to the race or culture that last fought to conquer it. “Conquered, Not Stolen” is a chauvinistic statement intended to push back upon attempts by settler societies to confront and reconcile with their colonial histories by promoting genocide celebration and white nationalist interpretations of history. The meme is also used to articulate support for maintaining the privileged societal position of white European colonizers. It is used by the American white supremacist group Patriot Front in their propaganda.
