The 1969 reclamation of Alcatraz Island sparked a national Red Power movement as Native Americans united to fight for land reclamation, environmental protection, human rights, cultural preservation, and sovereignty.

On today's Your Call, we’ll honor Indigenous People’s Day by speaking with native activists on the front lines of environmental battles.  From the tar sands in Canada, to coal mining at Black Mesa, to fracking, toxic waste, and deforestation-- native people are standing up for environmental justice in their communities.  Where do you see examples of this?  Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here.  What can we all learn learn from how native communities relate to the environment?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
