The Esto’k Gna (Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe of Texas), the Somi Se’k Village Base Camp’s mission is to populate and support a network of front Line Encampments (Wolf Pack) villages along the so called Mexican-American border, protecting indigenous sacred sites, resisting construction of the LNG (fracked gas) terminal, accompanying pipelines, and educating people about the environmental devastation the Border Wall will cause. We fight to stop the senseless endangerment of people, animals, and the environment.

The first encampment that our Base Camp will support will be the Yalui village, near the Mexican-American border. The village will exist on both sides of the wall. From there, we will rebuild more Esto’k villages, from which we will protect, aid, and bear witness along the so called Texas-Mexico border.

The Somi Se’k Village Base Camp will support and train activists to populate these villages. We operate with the understanding that the issues arising around the border-- the right to migrate, destruction of the environment and indigenous sacred sites, and the inhumane incarceration of migrant children-- are intersectional and are symptoms of centuries-long control and oppression by colonizers.

We are Natives and non-Natives, Water Protectors, military veterans, students, community organizers, other collectives, and working people. Working under the leadership of indigenous communities, we are people of all races, genders, ethnicities, political and spiritual backgrounds, and ages. We recognize our co-dependence and understand that we are one people.
We are dedicated to non-violent and prayerful action and resistance.

Yalui Villagers hard at work to keep the area clean and maintained. As guardians of the land it is our job to keep these Sacred Sites clean and maintained. Prayers and offerings to the people who rest here and done daily. I personally go sit with them. I tell them stories of the activities of the day and how we are all trying to help wake up the world to stop the destruction of their peace.

May I introduce to you PFC Jackson. He served in World War II as a sharpshooter. He received the Bronze Star for "heroic achievement, heroic service, meritorious achievement, or meritorious service in a combat zone."

PFC Jackson soon will be rewarded for his heroic actions in a combat zone by The President of the United States Donald Trump building a wall on top of his final resting place.

Trump supporters and defenders don't you dare turn your head, scroll by this or tell me Donald Trump honors our service members, veterans and fallen soldiers.

I guess since he passed in 1990 and is the wrong color it's ok to disturb his final resting place and be disrespected by the citizens he fought to preserve for citizens of this country's freedoms.

**Translation from Spanish** : "Here rest the remains of James "Santiago" Jackson and his wife Juana Zuniga Parents of Alberto Z Jackson

Then Jesus said I am the resurrection and the life he that believes in me, even if he dies he lives. John 11:25

Given in memory by their children: Santiago Jr, Josefina, Alicia, Juanita, Alberto, Juan, Jose and Graciela Jackson.

We will never forget them" Translated by Annette Garcia Thank you Ruth!

This is what Yalui Village and their Villagers is protecting during their occupation.

“Taken at the National Butterfly Center.
This place is being set for destruction because of the border wall....

A wide array of complex life thrive in this area. It is one of the few last preserves in this immediate vicinity which still facilitates the natural migration patterns of many different species of plants and animals.“ BL Mason
