Radio Bvlbancha! Seven years after Standing Rock we are back in the community on the ground, setting up and sustaining community-led radio! Community begins with communication. Being prepared for climate chaos is essential for the survival of our peoples and Earth. I’m so thankful to be here on the traditional lands of the Houma Nation in beautiful New Orleans! Back to the grass-roots where it matters and where it starts. Human rights include communication systems!
Bvlbancha Liberation Radio said, "We are providing a safe space for Indigenous Peoples and allies to discuss pressing land and water issues and adaptation practices, while wrestling with critical analyses of policies that shape how we fight for our lives and our Earth, while living just south of Cancer Alley, just north of the Dead Zone, in the heart of the Mississippi River Delta, where the consequences of the Plantationocene reflect realities and relationships with global systems."
"The Choctaw called New Orleans Bvlbancha, 'place of babbling languages' or 'place of many tongues,' long before the colonizers sailed in to rebrand the sacred site, where ceremony and trade are connected to a web of waterways."
"In the spirit of diversity, exchange and education, Bvlbancha Liberation Radio has been and will continue to strategize pathways for communities to engage in and to influence our collective planetary well-being, knowing that a just and sustainable way forward is not possible unless our communities are able to reckon, repair, heal from and to prohibit the perpetuation of white supremacy mentalities, policies and practices."
