We were honored to discuss the COVID-19 response frontline work of two distinguished leaders building thriving and inspiring, Indigenous and poor-people-centered, mutual aid and radical redistribution movements in Navajo territory (Arizona) and here in Ohlone Territory, Huichin (Oakland, CA).
The conversation included, Klee Benally (Diné musician, traditional dancer, artist, filmmaker, & Indigenous anarchist) talking about his important work with the Navajo Nation and Lisa TIny Grey Garcia (Afro Boricua, formerly unhoused, incarcerated poverty scholar and poet) will talk about her important work here in Oakland, California. In addition, the speakers will highlight their praxis of honoring and utilizing Indigenous cultural practices, and the significance of protecting the Sacred in their movements to save lives and to create healing for our families, communities and for our Mother Earth.
