Horseshoe Bend | One of the most visited places of Diné Bikéyah. The Colorado River didn’t always sit so still at the bottom of this part of the canyon. The white rapids disappeared when the local dam was constructed back in the 1950s. • The dam also disrupted natural water resources and the resulting water allocations disproportionately catered to private interests. • The Colorado River Compact was signed on November 24th, 1922 to regulate the usage of the river. “The basis to determine each state's share was to be the amount of irrigable land within a state. Determining such acreage, however, proved to be a very contentious issue, one that threatened to undermine compact negotiations (Joe Gelt Water Resources Research Center (WRRC). The University of Arizona).” • #DinéBikéyah #NavajoNation #DefendTheSacred
Jordan Cocker, March 2018, Portland, Oregon. Detail of a photo by Tekpatl Kuauhtzin (Nahua/Tsalagi) ▫️ The museum closes Asian Pacific American Heritage Month by talking with Jordan Cocker, a young artist and activist with deep roots in both Kiowa and Tongan culture: ▫️ “Thinking of myself in halves is a very colonized way of thinking, a very American way of thinking about a person in parts of blood quantum, in pieces, or as a box to tick.… ▫️ “The years spent on and between my two ancestral territories braided together my two lines in a good way. Everything is about the ancestors—who they are by name, what they did, where they went, and the legacy that they created and passed down to me. My ancestors on both sides of my family survived colonization, boarding school, and so many other types of trauma so that I can live in a good way.” ▫️ Read more on Smithsonian Voices at the link in our profile or https://s.si.edu/JCocker ▫️ @jordancocker @tekpatl #asianpacificamericanheritagemonth #apahm #smithsonianvoices @smithsonianmagazine

Alaskans took to the streets again last night to defend one of the last intact arctic ecosystems in America, the public lands jewel that is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The overwhelming consensus of those present: the coastal plain isn’t for oil pads and hundred of miles of access roads. It’s belongs to the caribou who have used it forever as a refuge for giving birth. #protectthearctic #defendthesacred #resist
