o'otham

[image description: the cover of the zine queer indigenous girl issue 4: liberation, a collage depicting a black indigenous woman seated with her left hand palm open resting gently on top of a black indigenous boy’s head. Next to the boy are four O'Otham people. On the lower left is text from the poet ire'ne lara silva’s poem we call ourselves back. The text reads: we have walked through fire through burning infernos we have wept we have suffered we call ourselves back we have survived we have become stronger we call ourselves back we have not lost any part of ourselves we are not diminished we call ourselves back we are whole.]

Look at it. It’s just so beautiful. I cry. 😭
