The Secretary of the Interior on Wednesday decided against releasing water down the Trinity River to ensure the survival of the salmon runs expected this month. The virtual trickle of water is low, too warm, and clogged with moss, while corporate farms in California’s Central Valley are receiving the government subsidized water. The people of the Hoopa Valley Tribe and Yurok Tribe on the Trinity-Klamath Rivers are very worried that they will face another massive fish kill, as happened in 2002 under the same conditions.
"I don’t identify as hispanic, I prefer latina or mestiza." Isn't "Chicanx" the more politically conscious term? The student's I've seen into decolonial self-identity, that study their history,seemed to identify as Chicano/Chicano Studies etc. It also ties the historic, anti-racism, political movements of "brown' peoples in the U.S. Doesn't "mestiza" focus on the mixed Euro aspect rather than decentering from that and identifying as "Chicano"/native?
