SAN FRANCISCO -- Lori Riddle, O'odham of Gila River Indian Community, spoke on how her family endured the poisons of living on a Superfund site, during the American Indian Movement's gathering, AIM West, here Nov. 21 -- 22, 2014.
Speaking on the long struggle of O'odham to defend sacred places in southern Arizona, Lori shared the struggle of O'odham who are fighting Loop 202, south of Phoenix, on O'odham land, as they defend their sacred mountain.
Describing the mutated corn now growing on O'odham land, Riddle warned against the genetically-modified seeds that have been used on Indian lands.
