Share in a discussion of the struggles of indigenous communities worldwide and in the US. Also, well talk about current negotiations at the United Nations on these issues.
Special Guest: Jose Matus of the Indigenous Alliance Without Borders will talk about his experience with the struggles of Native American communities against the militarization of the border and the building of the fence between Mexico and the US.
Other indigenous speakers from Abia Ayala (Quechua for the continent named America by Spanish settlers) will share their challenges in a reality of exclusion, racism, discrimination, and xenophobia.
We, Indigenous Peoples are not immigrants in our own continent. Our ancestors walked and lived throughout Mesoamerica and never built any fence.
Enjoy an exchange of indigenous foods – bring a dish from your culture to share.
DJ Sonido Usumacinta will spin traditional music! Dont miss it!
