Our bi-weekly panel will bring our experts from the Xicanx/Indigenous struggles into conversation around issues of the week in an open forum, allowing our followers and friends to engage in conversations centering on struggle, organizing, direct action, history, nationalism, anarchism, issues of indigenismo, settler colonialism, and more. The panel will have four to five scholars, activists, academics, organic intellectuals, warriors, writers, shit talkers and those we can't even try to essentialize. Join us or scroll through our archives.
