Fighting Apartheid at the borders of Arizona and Palestine

SAN XAVIER, TOHONO O'ODHAM NATION (Arizona) - Michelle Cook, Navajo activist, and Aida Khan, bringing support from a coalition for Palestine, at the Indigenous Peoples' Border Summit of the Americas 2007. During the summit, a delegation of Mohawks joined Native people to the so-called US/Mexico border, where they witnessed the US Apartheid Wall under construction. The lead contractor Boeing subcontracted Elbit Systems, the Israeli Defense Contractor, which is constructing security at both borders, the US Apartheid Wall at the US/Mexico Border and the Palestine/Israeli Apartheid Wall.

Although the US border spy towers on O'odham land and elsewhere on the US border are still not functioning, the border wall is under construction on Tohono O'odham Nation lands. The border wall construction has already caused Boeing to dig up the ancestors of the O'odham. It will also be a barrier to the O'odham ceremonial procession. While the Tohono O'odham Nation government promotes the wall, individual O'odham are calling out to Indigenous Peoples everywhere to support their fight against Apartheid. (Photo Brenda Norrell)
