WHY AN INDIGENOUS DELEGATION? Did you know that the Palestine/Israel border is built by the same company that built the California/Mexico border? There are big differences between the societies in the U.S. and in Palestine but there are also similarities in both struggles. There is the struggle of keeping tradition and culture alive. Cultrural traits relative to both countries such as: traditional dancing, ceremonies and sacred sites are disappearing because of colonization. In both countries there is a huge disregard towards land by the people in power. In the U.S. sacred land is being destroyed and paved for the “necessities” of modern life. Palestinian homes and land are being destroyed to make way for Jewish settlements. By going to Palestine the delegation hopes to show more than just solidarity with the Palestinian people, we want to join the international struggle against imperialism. The delegation is going out to support our Palestinian partners and to learn their ways of resistance. We will bring back these experiences and share with our communities.
