UC Berkeley will be hosting its third annual Indigenous People’s Night of Resistance this Thursday, April 2nd from 5:30 to 10:30 pm. For the the third year Jesus Barraza and I will be participating in the event. This year we will be tabling and continuing our support of Indigenous students at Berkeley.
Indigenous People’s Night of Resistance is a night to honor all people who walk with the earth to protect and defend it. Indigenous peoples from Africa, Asia, Native America, and the Pacific Islands are not of the past but continue to live with dignity and continue to hold a great responsibility in sharing the knowledge of our ancestors who resisted colonialism in order for us to be here today. We envision a world without borders and seek to unite all marginalized communities through the intellectual, cultural and spiritual resistance that runs in our veins. Through our music, dance, art and spoken word we will share our experiences in hopes of building a more inclusive world-view within this university and all social systems at large.
