Here's the footage from our day in Green Valley.
As our analysis below states, our collective decided to share what the border means to us, as O'odham. We did not know how the community was going to react, but decided to confront the issue head on. Note, that the pro-checkpoint/border supporter who was holding a banner in the blog below, walks out at the 3:38 mark in the video below.
These videos show the possibilities of where the Border Debate can go, once the indigenous point of view is heard. It shows how out of touch most "American" citizens are with the facts of history. We as indigenous people represent something that every pro-border, anti-immigrant, racist soul (if its still there) fears and hates.
Our proud existence sheds the truth to their setter mythology of the Americas.
Thats why the Collective, and PCWC, see the importance of attacking this heated issue (Border/Immigration)from the stance we described in our analysis below.
This is a stance that we would love to investigate in any future confrontation against all pro-border/anti-immigrant ideologues that claim that they are being "invaded"...
