Culture and nationality are not race. This is why White can be Hispanic; Hispanic is not a race.
While good humored, this gentleman is confused. He doesn’t look White…he IS White (and Mexican). To look White is to be White.
White is a color. And when you are born with that color then what people see is a White person. Period. And that skin color is the primary basis upon which people judge your race. Other considerations, such as facial features and hair, are quite relevant but secondary.
Skin color is the most immediate and powerful force for evoking racial associations and dis-associations, and all the attendant privileges and oppressions.
Why were Indians called “redskins”? Seer tradition remembers. The Frenchmen who landed in the St. Lawrence asked the Micmacs who they were. It was done in sign language. The Indians replied, “We are who we are—people.” The sign for this is similar to the one meaning “paint” (especially red paint). It is made by rubbing your fingers across the top of your left hand. The one sign shows “This is me.” The other sign imitates the mixing of paint. The Frenchmen didn’t understand. The question was repeated. The Indians repeated their answer, more insistently each time. The Frenchmen thought the Indians were saying they were “Redskins.” They reported that back to the King and those who had sent them. It got put in books. Later, they did not want to correct their mistake. And they never have corrected it.
The FNRP emerged out of the opposition to the coup and quickly developed into the largest social movement in Honduran history. Loosely organized into collectives at the local and regional level, the resistance includes a rainbow of movements: union activists, teachers, lawyers, artists, indigenous and Afro-indigenous villagers, small farmers, LGBT activists, […]
"In its most general sense, buen vivir [Sumak Kawsay] denotes, organizes, and constructs a system of knowledge and living based on the communion of humans and nature and on the spatial-temporal harmonious totality of existence. That is, on the necessary interrelation of beings, knowledges, logics, and rationalities of thought, action, existence, and liv […]
I remember jolting awake at 6 AM. Still dark. Someone was banging on my neighbors' door. I could hear whispering, then screaming. When I opened my eyes, just like that, I made out two, three, four distinct voices. Months later, my neighbor, who I’ll call Beto, told me there must have been 10 to 12 police officers at his door that morning. They were defi […]
The Mexican Network of Mining-Affected Peoples (REMA, for its initials in Spanish) and the Mesoamerican Movement against the Mining Extractive Model (M4) organized a three-day nationwide encounter in the Northern Sierra of Puebla where hundreds of mining-affected community members from numerous states participated in talks and workshops where experiences, st […]
After three decades of struggle for agrarian reform, Brazil’s Landless Movement paused during its 6th Congress to evaluate its experience and reflect on the new reality. The goal: to change while changing themselves. […]
After nine years of research and illustration, the Beehive Design Collective launched their latest graphic campaign, Mesoamérica Resiste, in December of last year. Mesoamérica Resiste is the third installment in a trilogy about globalization in the Americas (following earlier graphics about the FTAA and Plan Colombia). This graphic campaign was directly rese […]
Maybe the real alternative is not financing development and redistributing income, but the very idea of development. What Latin Americans desire at this point in time is not development but escaping from it. The development model is more an ideological construct for the region’s elites and middle classes rather than for the peoples who are suffering it. It i […]
In August 2013, President Rafael Correa announced that the world had "failed us" for not giving Ecuador enough money to save Yasuní-ITT. When the deal went sour social, indigenous, and environmental organizations responded by launching a campaign to gather 600,000 signatures in six months, as stipulated by Ecuador's constitution, to push for a […]

'Mining tar sand will destroy Govt' read the headline in April of 2012. The statement was made to Trinidad and Tobago's Express newspaper by well-known environmental campaigner Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh to the news that Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar had made statements about working with Canada's Harper Government to start development […]
In March 1968 thousands of Chicana and Chicano students boycotted their schools in protest of racism and educational inequity. Shouting “Walkout! Walkout!” more than ten thousand students disrupted the normal business of their school day by physically leaving and gathering outside in unity to make their statement of rights.
Striking students presented this list of demands to the LA Board of Education.
No student or teacher to be reprimanded or suspended for participating in the…
There has been a movement in Latin America to unite indigenous populations that are separated only by the borders of the countries that they live in. These movements seek to have their message heard not just on a national level but on a transhemispheric level. The following are examples of groups that have made the move to organize in order to be heard on a transnational level. These movements do not call for indigenous rights to be contained within a certain country, but rather to have…
A VENDIDO INTERVIEWS OLIN TEZCATLIPOCA:
1. Why are we not Hispanic or Latino?
Hispanics are the culture, land, things, and people of Spain. Mexicans and "Central Americans" have been fighting Hispanics for almost 500 years. To call ourselves Hispanics is to make a mockery of ourselves and to make the final surrender to the Spaniards. We are descendants of Mexicas, of the people of Anahuac, not Spaniards. Latinos have traditionally been the white people of "Latin America", but they have…
All of the Chicano studies professors present at this lecture refused to defend our people. The Mexica Movement was the only organization at the LACMA Olmec exhibition to defend our people and to confront this racist attack by Afrocentrics. Let study of the truth be the only truth, not fantasies or fraud or racism.

We believe in self-management instead of relying on the President [Chávez]. We also have our own factories—one that packages sugar, another that packages grains—which form part of a network of distribution amongst different popular neighbourhoods in order to try to maintain the regulated price of basic foodstuffs and to make sure that the goods arrive. We do all this to make sure that in the event that there is another bosses’ strike, they will not be able to pressure the public or the…
This past week a caravan of more than 200 Ch’ol Mayan indigenous from the Mexican State of Chiapas arrived in Mexico City to demand that the nation’s Supreme Court recognize their right to their communal lands (ejido), which are being denied by Chiapan state authorities. The “Caravan for Land and Territory” arrived to the nations capital on August 1 with a dignified, combative yet peaceful march from the city’s Monument of the Revolution to the main plaza where the Supreme Court is…
La Victoria, a shack settlement turned bustling, permanent neighborhood, was born when 1,200 families living in desperate poverty in Santiago de Chile took over an undeveloped sector of the city. The new residents of La Victoria erected houses and buildings without government permits, communally organized a security system, and within months, were running their own school. This year, La Victoria will turn fifty-five.Raúl Zibechi, a writer whose work on social movements is widely read in…
The team's work follows up on earlier studies by several of its members who found a unique variant an allele of a genetic marker in the DNA of modern-day Native American people. Dubbed the "9-repeat allele," the variant which does not have a biological function, occurred in all of the 41 populations that they sampled from Alaska to the southern tip of Chile, as well as in Inuit from Greenland and the Chukchi and Koryak people native to the Asian western side of the Bering Strait. Yet…
