#SINTLI19 Seeds of Indigenous Nations and Tribes Leadership Institute
Seeds of Sovereignty Summit. Anahuacalmecac is honored to convene this year’s summit with our relatives and partners @calstatela. This year we are honored to co-host the SINTLI Seeds of Sovereignty Summit at Cal State LA with our many partners here including especially the university student volunteers and leaders and professors. We are honored to be welcomed by our Tongva relatives and spiritual guides who open this pathway to gather, meet and imagine a future our ancestors dreamt of with justice, liberty and dignity for us all. We recognize the land we stand on and the entire state of what is now called California as unceded original territory of the Indigenous Peoples of these lands.

We are here today to celebrate our survivance as Indigenous Peoples and prepare our youth to tackle the issues we face in the world from ancient and novel vantage points. Today’s event, the Seeds of Indigenous Nations and Tribes Leadership Institute and summit has been convened by Anahuacalmecac to develop pathways towards the meaningful engagement of youth at the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and in all other local, national and international bodies of governance which impact the daily lives and futures of Indigenous Peoples in Anawak, Tawantinsuyo, Abya Yala and around the world. The SINTLI Seeds of Sovereignty Summit was originally begun as a partnership between Anahuacalmecac and the San Francisco Unified School District American Indian and Migrant Education programs to gather Indigenous high school students from San Francisco to Los Angeles to discuss the issues they face as Indigenous youth and find common ground in the international experiences of self-recognition, self-expression and self-determination as Indigenous Peoples and not ethnic demographic minorities.
I respect and admire many of our Anahuacalmecac World School parents for many reasons but especially for the beautiful and powerful examples your children are, xinaxtin, each in their own way. 
Yet, our future has not really been reckoned with in many parts of our communities. 
Where have we envisioned a world in 20, 50 or 104 years from now, let alone seven generations then planned to act upon this? 
Well in our small way we have at Semillas Community Schools and parents have guided this experience all along. From the stay at home moms to the janitors to the communist organizers to the indigenous elders to the university professors, our parents lead by example. Our autonomy depends upon these amazing families. 
Even so, this has not been without our challenges. Even the most remote universidad autónoma indígena I know of in the highlands of Guerrero depends upon volunteer professors and operates without accreditation essentially as a private school because no one community or network can foot the bill for such an autonomous education. 
So we recognize that there will be a balance between the settler state post-secondary schools and the need for autonomy over our comunity institutions. 
Nation-building and nation-envisioning does not contradict the need to develop skills, capacity and organization. What these institutions will never give us is power, that we must create or take. 
Yesterday, I was discussing colonization and decolonization with some of our ninth grade girls who have been trained in root cause analysis methodologies for issue-based campaign organizing. 
I’d like to think that together these girls are going to put their education to good community-centered purpose.
JOIN US TOMORROW: Brown Issues and Shop Mi Vida host Anahuacalmecac World School  #BrownIssues class special exhibit...”Desaparecidxs”
Semillas Community Schools
(Flyer attached)
Help us support our youth in this important project especially because one of our own families has been affected by an ICE raid and is currently in detention. This event will sponsor a fundraiser that students have designed to help raise funds for the family’s needs thank you so much for your support.

Students in the Brown Issues class collaborated with Cal State LA students to create an exhibit of two dimensional images representing a desaparecidx, whom they will reaparecer con y en dignidad (reappear in dignity). Each student was responsible for researching a specific type of state sanctioned disappearance, interview someone with that experience, and create a cardboard cut to share their story. Through this project we hold space for them and serve witness to these cultural and social genocides.”

Analicemos creativamente que tenemos que transmutar. Apegos, vicios, personas, trabajo, pareja, sentimientos, ideas, prejuicios?????

At the @calcharters Charter Schools Association conference. Demanding more for all takes nothing from anyone. Targeting our school for termination is an affront to the #UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the #UNDRIP. 
UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states: “Article 30: In those States in which ethnic, religious or linguistic minorities or persons of indigenous origin exist, a child belonging to such a minority or who is indigenous shall not be denied the right, in community with other members of his or her group, to enjoy his or her own culture, to profess and practise his or her own religion, or to use his or her own language.”
Charter cannibalism must stop as much as privatization must. However, so long as charter schools remain constitutionally public, alternatives to government schooling and education remain a historic imperative - especially for #IndigenousPeoples.
