Indivisible Tohono is a grassroots organization working on issues that affect the Tohono O’odham Nation and those that affect the Natives within the state of Arizona and federally. Tohono O’odham is a federally recognized tribe split by the US-Mexico border in what is today southern Arizona, and it has become well known for its recent refusal to allow Trump’s Wall on Tohono O’odham land. This event features three key members of Indivisible Tohono who will discuss their work against the US-Mexico border and border-related militarization on Tohono O’odham land through education and civic engagement.
