Mexicans are the social algae of the Americas, surviving and migrating across the borders colonialism has imposed on our indigenous lands. Arizona is the most recent example of the US government’s attempt to sterilize the life giving ways of our grandmas and grandpas, to enforce a hostile seperation among the indigenous peoples of the north and south when we have coexisted with one another for thousands of years. Mexicans flee the spanish colonizer thinking of the south to encounter the british colonizer thinking of the north, needing to adapt to the harshest of modern colonizer climates and endure a civil warfare that has been waged on our peoples since 1491. The resilience of Mexicans and other indigenous migrants living in the US demonstrates our collective ability and responsibility to restore the ecological and spiritual thinking of our foremothers needed if we are to survive as a human race.
As I write, I reveal.
