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.

This T Shirt fundraiser ends today! We need at least 4 more shirts to print. This is your last chance to get a shirt and help support the Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe protect the sacred that’s being destroyed by the border wall. This shirt has each of the 28 paws being waived on the back. All proceeds go directly to the tribe. Please share and let’s get these printed so we can bring awareness to the destruction of Native Sacred sites, destruction of habitat and grave sites of veterans and families. Yalui still stands!

We are still standing at Yalui Village protecting the Sacred. Which is many things. The border wall is devastating to not only the cemetery but the wildlife out here. We give voices to those who need it. Be it spiritual or critter. No border no wall we aren’t leaving.

back working with the asylum seekers in McAllen...no wall will stop those fleeing hunger, gangs, lack of jobs, and especially violence and war. The wall targets the innocent and completely ignores the natural resources....well written, Juan. Thanks.

We can't let this wall of hate destroy what makes this earth worth something, which is its history and its inhabitants.
