SNAG= "Seventh Native American Generation"
Recently Snag Magazine in the Bay Area (Califaztlan) organized with several folks to make something amazing happen. With the help of artists, organizations, and groups such as Huaxtec, Seventh Generation Indigenous Visionaries, Dignidad Rebelde, a newly formed group of students from Haskell Indian Nations University in Kansas, the Palestine Educational Project, and Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA;) they funded a trip for native youth to go to Palestine to meet with youth out there. For more on this check their blog and see how you can be down:http://indigenousdelegation.wordpress.com
This is part of a message I recieved about contributing to the next issue of SNAG which will be very much related to the trip to Palestine, Why? The issue of land, appropriation of it, and outright genocide to take it is not new. Native youth here in the Americas have a lot in common with Palestinian youth.Thoughts on this?
How can you contribute? If you're a Native youth (ages 24 and under, no exceptions) send us your photos, pictures, drawings, graffiti, writing, poetry about the theme of Living Under Occupation. What did your family, grandparents experience? What do you experience today as a young Native person? What do you see as the result of Occupation in the land, in your cultural practices?
