To an old and wise population of trees, 250 years isn't too long to remember the sound of its oldest native voices...

"It’s been nearly 250 years since the Esselen Tribe of Monterey County was stripped of its land, culture and language by Spanish missionaries. The tribe, which had called an area located in California’s north central coast home for thousands of years, was almost decimated by disease and death.

With 214 tribal members, Nason said the Esselen tribe plans to share the land with other tribes in the area — the Ohlone, Amah Mutsun and Rumsen, all of whom were gravely affected by colonization."

Melg'puguasit, we stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as a colonized planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in an Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as an Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls. The Earth does not sustain white supremacists.
