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.

Just got back from being in the Villages for 2 weeks. Will be back soon. There are a lot of needs. Fundraisers, support drives for materials and awareness are key. I averaged about 10 miles a day walking and patrolling Mariposa Village. There is a strong border patrol presence as if they are trying to intimidate us. We won’t leave or back away. We will stand and witness and bring awareness to what’s really happening down there. Everyone is welcome to visit the villages or a day trip or longer. If your thinking of coming reach out to Somisek Village to complete necessary vetting and training. We would love to have visitors. Updates are hard while we are in the field. There is a lot of documenting and updating tribal leadership of daily movements. Any and all photographers and drone pilots are needed and welcome. Thank you to everyone that supports the efforts. When your out there knowing people are supportive means a lot and helps keep us going.
