Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés listened carefully and agreed. So, now that it is customary to use the word “historical” for anything, it is the first time that Zapatismo has done something programmed before it was announced (we usually hang up and start late). Ergo: it is something historical in Zapatismo.

The tipi that stood during the Occupation of Alcatraz is now envisioned as a monument of the resistance that resulted in upholding far-reaching rights for Native People.

Robert Free remembers setting up the tipi in the early part of the occupation in 1969, and now has a vision of it as a monument of the resilience, tenacity and self-determination.
