Tohono O'odham, Akimel O'odham and Hia-Ced O'odham tribes have thrived and existed in the Sonoran Desert long before borders were established in the so called Americas. The U.S / Mexico international border cuts through ancestral O'odham homelands. Trumps border wall is now desecrating those homelands by blasting grave sites, depleting scarce water resources for construction, posing threats to endangered species and committing colonial violence on indigenous lives. 

O’odham land is being encroached upon by the Trump Border Wall. 

The wall itself symbolizes white supremacy, xenophobia & disrespects ancestral Tohono O’odham & Hia-ced O’odham land, natural resources, sovereignty & self-determination to protect their ancestral homelands. 

Funds are needed to support O'odham and allies as they protect their homelands from the devastation Trumps border wall poses to O'odham sacred sites and O'odham lives. Costs include; immediate bail relief, long term legal support, vehicle impoundment(s) and continuation of sustained organizing efforts to protect O'odham land.

At current count, two protestors have been arrested. We anticipate this number may rise. Rebecca Thomas, O'odham community member and financial overseer, will distribute funds as needed; at current moment this will be to provide support to both protestors. 

Disbursements will be ongoing depending on people’s charges and cases. We will do our best to continually update information as money is used to bail people out and support peoples’ legal cases.
