Red Power Today

Seven Generations 2020

While the #NoDAPL movement brought mainstream attention to Indigenous issues, Native activists in New Mexico have been resisting settler violence, erasure, and genocide for as long as it has been happening. Their resistance is ongoing.

Native organizations like The Red Nation, Tewa Women United, Pueblo Action Alliance, and K’é Infoshop are all actively involved in decolonization. Their fight for economic liberation, environmental and reproductive justice, Native self-determination and sovereignty, and an end to colonialism and white supremacy is a continuation of past generations. These Indigenous activists have been involved in protests for racial, social, and economic justice in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and beyond, but their work is not limited to protesting. It also includes addressing the day-to-day needs of unhoused people in the city, attending public hearings on US Bureau of Land Management oil and gas leases, and hosting teach-ins.

The National Indian Youth Council is still headquartered in Albuquerque, and their mission remains true to its founders’ vision of Red Power. They advance the cause of Indigenous self-determination by improving educational and career opportunities for Native people, promoting cultural and religious freedom, and advocating for Indigenous political issues.
