Senator McCain has not come out with a formal statement opposing or supporting Trump's executive order to begin building a wall on the southern border, 75 miles of which would be on Tohono O'odham tribal land- a clear violation of the Nation's tribal sovereignty. The wall would be devastating to animals, wildlife, and water that moves across the border, and would prevent O'odham from continuing religious and cultural practices in our traditional lands of what is now Mexico.

Senator McCain represents the Tohono O'odham Nation and its tribal members in Congress and must listen to the voices and concerns of those who live and work on the Nation along the border. We stand AGAINST the border wall and increasing border militarization.

We want a large crowd of O'odham, Natives, and anyone who opposes Trump's proposed border wall to join us at McCain's office to visually remind him that he represents us and he needs to listen to our concerns. During this time, all letters of opposition to the wall that have been collected over the past few weeks will be delivered, and a meeting with his staff will be requested.

Wear your traditional outfits, bring your sawkud, visually represent your community or just show up!

Ideas For Change: A Conversation with Gabriel Ayala

In honor of World Water Day (March 22) this panel will be a discussion on indigenous environmental issues with famed Yaqui guitarist and activist, Gabriel Ayala and moderated by environmental toxicologist and University of Arizona PHD student, Lydia Jennings (Yaqui) .It will primarily focus on water and the latest developments at Standing Rock, ND with the Dakota Access Pipeline and Oak Flat, Arizona.The event will be held at Revolutionary Grounds Books & Coffee, and hosted by Blackfeet tribal member and writer Bill Wetzel. Opening music will be performed by Christie Kelly.

Moderator: Lydia Jennings

Lydia Jennings, a Ph.D student in the laboratory of Dr. Raina M. Maier in the Department of Soil, Water, and Environmental Science, has been awarded a 2015 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Lydia is a part of the Yaqui and Huichol nations, an UA Alfred P. Sloan Fellow, and a NIEHS Superfund Research Program Training core trainee.

Lydia received her Bachelors of Science degree from California State University, Monterey Bay in Environmental Science, Technology and Policy. Lydia worked for three years following her bachelor's degree for the University of California, Davis, as an environmental toxicologist, where she sampled and analyzed pesticide and metal contaminants in the major California waterways, as well as evaluating the toxicity of hyper-saline brine on marine organisms.

Lydia enrolled in the University of Arizona to work on the international and interdisciplinary issues relating to mining and mine reclamation, specifically where mining impacts Native American and border communities. The subject of her Ph.D research is the identification and characterization of microbial indicators as tools to evaluate mine waste reclamation efforts, and she is working in collaboration with three active copper mining companies in Arizona.

The basis of Lydia's NSF Fellowship is to develop a method to quantify soil improvements of re-vegetated mine waste using microbial metrics. She will characterize microbial diversity with soil development and evaluate the presence of plant growth promoting activities associated with successful phytostabalization. As part of her fellowship, Lydia will also work on an online module to train students about microbial cycling in soils, which will hopefully be implemented in tribal colleges, and continue her community outreach in mining communities.

Panelist: Gabriel Ayala

A member of the Yaqui people of Southern Arizona, guitarist Gabriel Ayala is an accomplished classical musician. He is positioned at the forefront of a new generation of Native American musicians, breaking all native and non-native stereotypes with his trailblazing assortment of music genres and accolades.

Gabriel earned a Master's Degree in Music Performance from the University of Arizona in 1997, has taught at all educational levels from elementary through college, and serves as a competition adjudicator. Although he truly enjoys being a teacher, his busy touring schedule allows him to only teach in Master Class settings.

Ayala performs regularly throughout the United States and Internationally. Locally, he has appeared at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, National Museum of the American Indian, Musical Instrument Museum and the Oscar Meyer Theater in Madison, Wisconsin. Recently, he was a featured artist at President Barack Obamaʼs Inaugural Ball. He has been recognized by the former State of Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, now Director of Homeland Security, for his musical achievements. In addition, he has also been highly honored with the University of Arizonaʼs Tanner Award that recognizes significant professional career success and contributions and leadership benefiting American Indian communities. Not only is Gabriel recognized locally and in the United States but he has also had the opportunity to play for Pope Benedict XVI at the canonization of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha in Rome, Italy. He was also the featured performer at the Internacional de la Guitarra Academica" in Venezuela with performances in Caracas, Guarenas, Guatire and on National Public Television throughout Venezuela.

Gabriel has been featured in several media publications such as Peoples", Country Today", Magazine" (Canadian and United States Editions), of the Southwest (German Publication)", America Calling", Broadcasting Corporation" and numerous others.

Gabriel has received numerous music awards from national and international awards programs that include Native American Music Awards Instrumental CD", World Music", and of the Year", the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards International Album", and Aboriginal Peoples Choice Awards Instrumental".

Gabriel received many accolades in his career among them is the honor of sharing the stage with Motown living legends The Four Tops, The Temptations, Richie Havens, Dr. John, and many others.

In 2012, Gabriel started his own record label/recording studio entilted, Records", in hopes to start a Native American Record Label to help promote aspiring Native American Artists. of Blue" is Ayalaʼs first release through DeezMas Records and it has been met with great success. Upon itʼs release, of Blue" was ranked #1 on CDBaby for over four (4) months. Prior to DeezMas Records, Ayala released three self-distributed albums: Titled" in 2003, Be Home for Christmas" in 2007 and in 2008. Gabriel also has several other releases through his past record label with a total of ten (10) CDʼs on the market.

Although Gabriel is a classically trained musician, he has ventured out into playing many diverse genres of music which include classical, jazz, flamenco, tango and most recently JazzMenco. JazzMenco is Gabrielʼs original genre of music which he showcases around the world. The fusion of jazz and traditional flamenco was inspired by his affinity for both of these genres. JazzMenco can be described as the driving rhythmic force of flamenco with the improvisational feel and chord structure of jazz.

As Ayala continues to travel throughout the United States and other countries, he serves as an advocate for education for all youth. He does this through guitar workshops, motivational speaking, presentations in various minority communities. He sets an example for native communities by instilling his values of living a traditional lifestyle while abstaining from Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco.

Gabriel believes in leading our children in the right direction through his philosophy, your children, Honor your elders, and Respect your women". Gabriel wants to share the gift of music with as many people as possible. And he serves as an example and delivers a message to children, letting them know that they can become whatever they dream. Gabriel currently resides in Tucson, Arizona.

Before you get too excited about the new Cheerios campaign, where they've decided to give out 100 million FREE wildflower seeds, let me tell you what's really up…

1. Cheerios tested HIGHER for GLYPHOSATE (aka Round Up) than any other food tested- with Glyphosate levels over 1,100 parts per billion! (Here's the link from Consumer Affairs- www.consumeraffairs.com/news/after-fda-suspends-testing-for-pesticide-in-food-nonprofits-release-… )

2. GLYPHOSATE IS WHAT IS KILLING THE BEES IN THE FIRST PLACE AND CHEERIOS REFUSES TO REMOVE IT FROM THEIR PRODUCTS! (Link: www.naturalnews.com/050926_honey_bees_colony_collapse_glyphosate.html )

3. The company that Cheerios has partnered with for this project, Vesey's Seed Company, puchases seeds from various companies, one of which is owned Monsanto (the maker of GLYPHOSATE).

(Edited to add: Vesey's Seeds has its own brand of seeds which ARE on the Safe Seed Pledge List, but look closely on their website and you will see that wildflowers are not listed as one of their Organic/non-GMO products. They sell seeds from other growers too, in addition to their own seeds, and one of these growers (Seminis) is CURRENTLY owned by Monsanto. It's a loophole, smoke and mirrors to deflect from the truth, and it's just another way they can appear to be giving away non-GMO wildflower seeds. They haven't said these seeds are non-GMO… they've just said that their PERSONAL Vesey's seed brand is. Here is a link to their website- please look carefully and note that they do not have wildflowers: m.veseys.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fveseys.com%2Fca%2Fen%2F&utm_referrer=#2655 )

So um… enjoy those free wildflower seeds! But just know that they won't put a dent in the damage Cheerios is doing to the honeybee population. And the seeds might be GMO. Consider buying some seeds from a reputable non-GMO seed company like Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company or Peaceful Valley Farm & Garden Supply or Seed Savers Exchange? üòâ Or even better- BUY LOCAL.
