War of the Flea website is a website dedicated to bringing critical analysis of the contemporary colonial situation and how it affects the Xicanx/Indigenous/Latinx communities in the United States. The increasingly overt militarized nature of the attacks on our Indigenous communities across the hemisphere demand an intentional and critical analysis of events be undertaken. Our hope is that this website will become a clearinghouse for voices doing that work.
