Jenn Nelson has embarked on a mission to spend each weekend leading up to Christmas delivering food and water to Navajo elders living in remote parts of the reservation. Sunday, with the help of her father and daughter, Nelson delivered to two homes in the outskirts of the Chichiltah chapter, totaling 64 miles driving on unpaved roads.
We (@gatherfilm) had the great honor to work with Tara Duggan @taracduggan and Hillary Renick @coastymathanuuma on an article on about the food ways of the Sherwood band a Pomo natives based in Mendocino county California. It was sobering look at the disappearance of their ancestral harvesting and foraging environments by a series of government and mercantile invaders. Beginning in the 1600s they have had to face onslaught after onslaught against both their bodies and their land. Their brilliance and resiliency was incredibly inspiring and would give any activist anywhere hope that change is possible. Check out the article on today’s front page of the Chronicle and on their website.

Después del mercado 🥑 This traditional netted bag is made from twisted Maguey (agave) fibers. Maguey has been an important resource for indigenous communities in Mexico for thousands of years. The plant fibers are strong and flexible, making the perfect reusable market bag. #cosabuena
I was so disconnected from my roots growing up, that I truly had no idea what the truth behind thanksgiving was until I became an adult. And when I was faced with the truth, I still felt separate from the native people and culture. My lineage comes from Cuzcatlan, now known as El Salvador, and I was never taught the connection we share as indigenous peoples of the "americas" . Colonization deliberately placed "borders" and separation among the native people in order to divide us. We are one tribe! From north to south ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 and it is our duty to teach our children what we were almost forced to forget ! #fuckthanksgiving#9repeatallele#onetribe#native#indigenous#nativepride#nativelove#onetribe
My daughter and her cousins ready to celebrate Tulalip Day. I'm thankful for a school that encourages students to wear their regalia to school. Culture matters everywhere we go.#tulalip#yakama#yakamanation#indigenous#tulalipday

Banaba was the first place I ever saw asbestos dust. Obviously it was not good to be breathing this in during the months I spent there, but the people of Banaba have been living with this exposure since the British left the island in 1979, without rehabilitating the destruction they caused from strip mining AND leaving buildings made with this toxic dust. This is dust at the Banaba Primary School, the elementary school. The Banabans have only just learned that asbestos is toxic because they are isolated and off the grid, and no one bothered to tell them. And there’s no way to remove it, because the only houses left in the land that wasn’t mined are made with asbestos and families live in them-it’s too isolated and expensive to remove the asbestos and build an entire new island. The British, Australian and New Zealand governments owe Banaba at least the removal of this toxic waste, if not the rehabilitation of the entire island that they destroyed and profited from.
