Event Details

Tuesday, February 16, 2021
12-1 p.m.
The O’odham Nation (called Pueblo Papago in Mexico) Nation has inhabited lands in both Mexico and the USA. Its situation is getting more difficult as a result of the new migration policies of the USA in their effort to stop migrants coming to its territory, among them the building of the wall and the separation of families. The lecture will discuss what this territory means to the O’odham Nation, and which elements of their reality are promoting their social movement.
