Indigenous Sentiment Awakened

"The march is likely to stand as a historic milestone in the gradual but now unmistakable awakening of the indigenous giant of the Americas. ...On a North American and hemispheric scale, beyond the current bill and even the border issues, the marches confronted a more basic phenomenon of great concern to Indians. They rebuked a rising flood of anti-indigenous demagogy.

Bigots of all stripes are of one breath in attacking American Indian tribes, Mexican immigrants and the indigenous political movements of South America. The marches are sending a powerful message both to American politicians and to indigenous youth. These hateful attacks will not go unanswered. ...

These are the people asserting themselves in the white-shirt marches. They look like the long-sought foundation for the new alignment for indigenous rights."
