SPECIAL INTERVIEW!

In this special bonus content of Native Opinion, we present part 1 of our interview with Darren Thompson, Recording artist, Educator, and organizer for the Indigenous Peoples March 2019!

About this event:

On January 18, 2019, we are uniting the Indigenous peoples across the World to stand together to bring awareness to the injustices affecting Indigenous men, women, children & Two spirits. Indigenous people from North, Central and South America, Oceania, Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean are a target of genocide. Currently, many Indigenous people are victims of voter suppression, divided families by walls and borders, an environmental holocaust, sex, and human trafficking, and police/military brutality with little or no resources and awareness of this injustice. We Must Unite and Help!!
