Black History Month. Recovery: First Nations in Recovery. New Mexico PBS--NLFRTA stands on the shoulders February 2022

 A message, a narrative, a story

 

We are One.

 

Recovery-You may normally think of recovery in relation to an individual or a community suffering from a crisis event.  Recovery can also occur within a nation, a culture of peoples devastated by some event that has uprooted their heritage, or their culture out of their normal practice that has persisted for generations.

 

Black History Month is not just about the ‘Negro’, the Colored, and African American, the Black experience for equity, justice, housing, jobs, medical & health care.  But a month for all (Black, Latino, communities of color) that have experienced and are recovering from unjust and immoral practices.

 

We are ONE  (Do not get it twisted.  We are ONE), the Rural Coalition, the National Latino Farmers and Ranchers Trade Association, and BEMA International

 

Una Lucha Por Mi Pueblo | New Mexico PBS

Nov 30, 2009

http://www.newmexicopbs.org - Corridos are ballads, often referred to as windows that look into the soul of a people. They are the songs of the time, supplementing recorded documents as historical artifacts that describe the popular consciousness at the time in which they were written.

This week, we experience the songs of corridistas, Antonio Martinez, Roberto Martinez, and Chuy Martinez.

These land grant activists wrote about the centuries old struggle. Their feelings have been kept alive in song. The story they tell surrounds the Flores family's struggle to retain a portion of the Tierra Amarilla Land Grant, due for development by an Arizona consortium. This case is only a small part of the larger struggle of indigenous people displaced from their land. The legal issue of the occupation of land by activists has recently been settled out of court, but the larger issue of the dispossession of land remains.
