I live on land that was stolen and settled by invaders. I am not descended from those invaders/colonists though, but obviously just by being here, I am taking some benefit from what they did. I don't believe I have many (if any) advantages associated with my family history. In fact, I would go so far as to say that because of my family/race/place of origin, I am considered the current number one enemy of where I live.

I have considered, and sought out ways to leave this place. I have some ideas, but they are long term, as I would be affecting the lives in a major way of people I love.

Not sure what you mean. I don't believe anyone owns land. People just live on it, others show up and wipe them out and claim it for their own. That's basically the core of it anywhere it happens right?

In the case of where I live, that's certainly what happened.
