    MMIW in Latin America with Dr. Lydia Huerta

    MMIW in Latin America with Dr. Lydia Huerta

    In honor of National Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives Awareness Day, we draw attention to the epidemic in Abya Yala (Latin America) of missing and murdered indigenous women, girls, two-spirit, and transgender relatives. In the MMIWGTSTR movement, northerners often forget to include and think about relatives south of the imaginary, colonial border, and how they often times have EVEN LESS protection than those native people north of the imaginary, colonial border. Here to break it down for us is Dr. Lydia Huerta, a binational scholar of both Indigenous and colonial descent who has studied and presented the topic extensively.

    Hopi Dryland Farming with Ahkima Honyumptewa

    Hopi Dryland Farming with Ahkima Honyumptewa

    How do you thrive with limited water? Hopi dry-land farmers have been positioning their fields at the base of small watersheds to catch the nutrients and waters that run down after monsoon rains. Ahkima Honyumptewa has carried on this tradition and shares with us how this relates to farming in an era of climate instability. We also touch on the role of the human being in the universe as well as the importance of women in society! Enjoy!
