"The sea gives us our strength to be who we are, Indigenous Peoples living on the land," said O'odham Ofelia Rivas, speaking on Comca'ac (Seri) land during the Indigenous gathering of spiritual guides in Sonora, Mexico. It was the same day that Comca'ac reclaimed their ancestral land nearby at Kino Bay, south of the Arizona border at the Comca'ac's sea, known as the Gulf of California.
