this morning, I read an article in the BBC about how Native burial sites are literally being blown up to make way for Trump’s border wall. On an UNESCO World Heritage Site. No conversation between the Trump administration and the Nations in question.
According to an article in the BBC, Monument Hill at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is both a) where the blasting is occurring and b) where the Tohono O’odham Nation buried Apache warriors. You know. Where one nation respectfully put to rest the bodies of fallen enemies from another nation.
And, without even a conversation, it’s getting blown up.
It’s a little Sith Lord, isn’t it? Just a bit?
I don’t even know what to say, so I’m sharing this poem.
I just want this madness to stop and I want us to think about the legacy we live our children and grandchildren. Please, let’s leave them something to be proud of–not this wanton, imperialist monstrosity.
