Message from Ofelia Rivas
O'odham Voice against the Wall
Censored News

O'odham VOICE Against the WALL deeply appreciates the generosity of people with compassion to support children in O'odham communities in  Mexico.

As people might not be aware that all tribal support stops at the border, including all federal, state and state compact gaming funds.

My brother and I have worked independently for over 30 years to support our families and communities in Mexico.

We continue our Food Drives and annual Holiday Toy Drive besides all our other efforts to continue to protect sacred places and our way of life.

The toys are going to Ho'da-i K'uk / Schu'k Doag Sonora, Mexico Communities.

Many Thanks to Censored News for committed effort in providing a news outlet for grassroots peoples and complete investigative reporting on world affairs.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Buffy Sainte Marie says the truth must be told of the genocide of Indigenous Peoples, with the facts of the murder, slavery and rape that European kings and queens, military, churches and banks were responsible for.

"It was bad leadership. Bad leadership comes and goes, but in Europe it was institutionalized," Buffy said, speaking during an interview at her concert, as the 50th Anniversary of the Occupation of Alcatraz here.

Blood Memory Rising, Book Review of Standing with Standing Rock





Blood Memory Rising, Book Review of Standing with Standing Rock

Standing with Standing Rock is more of an encyclopedia than a book. The pages of references are a sort of road map, not just of a roadmap through the book, but a road map through time, and specifically through the time when Standing Rock camps were alive, pulsing with life, and giving birth to revolution and movement.

The details of the movement flow in these references like arteries. The words, stories, and news that followed Standing Rock are arteries of this mighty heart of Standing Rock, and those that preceded the camps were veins, carrying lifeblood to the heart of this movement.
