U.S.-Mexico border wreaks havoc on lives of an indigenous desert tribe | Al Jazeera America

U.S.-Mexico border wreaks havoc on lives of an indigenous desert tribe | Al Jazeera America | Upsetment | Scoop.it
If you are Tohono O’odham and live on the Mexican side, it’s a second-class life
Kenneth Weene's insight:

One of the hardest things for many Americans to understand is that Native Americans are not from some other place. If your ancestors came from England, Ireland, Russia, India, or even by force from Africa, you do not have a sense of being tied to your homeland and therefore of not being willing to move. By the very act of immigration, our ancestors made us neo-local. Not so for the First Peoples of the Americas. Their traditional lands are their home and often the center of their faith. If we would be decent and caring, we must help them to savor life on those traditional lands, to continue as much as possible their tribal traditions, and to have dignity as members of their communities and traditions.
