Borderlands

Donald Trump ordered the children of migrants and refugees to be forcefully removed from their parents and placed in concentration camps, resulting in numerous deaths. These atrocities represent a small fraction of an ongoing border crisis fueled by a hyper-capitalist economy historically rooted in genocide and slavery. This panel presents heartbreaking stories about and hopeful solutions to the border crisis from an Indigenous perspective. We will hear first-hand accounts of what it feels like to have a border cut through your ancestral territory, explore ways to reduce the need for migration through traditional economies, and discuss how re-indigenization offers a pathway of hope for migrants after they settle in the U.S.  Hosted by: Cara Romero (Chemehuevi). With: Josue Rivas (Aztec); Nany Zepeda (Maya); Stanley Rodriguez (Kumeyay); others TBD.

October 20th | 2:45 pm to 4:15 pm
