Indigenous Border Summit of the Americas planning session

Tohono O'odham, Salt River Pima, Navajo and Hopi/Pueblo tribal members gathered to plan the Indigenous Border Summit of the Americas 2007. The second annual gathering will be held at the San Xavier District on the Tohono O'odham Nation near Tucson Nov. 7 --10, Wednesday through Saturday. The summit organizer is Tohono O'odham Mike Flores. The San Xavier District Council passed a resolution again this year in support of the summit, which opposes the militarization of the border and supports Indigenous rights. The first planning session was held August 31 in Tucson. (Photo Brenda Norrell)
