#TakeBacktheEarth “ ..they have conquered us as a natural #power. See, we are power. They deal in #violence and #repression. #WeArePower. We are part of the natural world. All things of the natural world are a natural part of the #creation and feed off of our #sacred #MotherEarth. They have separated us from our #spiritualConnection to the #Earth…” #JohnTrudell #restinpower ✊

“I hate the padres,” she said, “and all of you, for living here on my native soil, for trespassing upon the land of my ancestors and despoiling our tribal domains….”

Her name was #Toypurina. She led the uprising of the #Tongva (#Gabrieleno) people against Mission San Gabriel 220 years ago, on October 25th, 1785.

She was a medicine woman, 24 years of age. Her rebellion defeated, she was banished from her land forever.
