Relocation is Genocide – Mae Tso Poster

“We must resist. We have become this land of ours. We are Indigenous. We are still here. And I am not going anywhere.”
– Mae Tso

Mae Tso was an elder Diné matriarch and a powerful force in the ongoing resistance to forced relocation on Black Mesa.
She fought against Peabody Coal mining and PL93-531, the so-called “Relocation Act” as she was one of the main plaintiffs in the lawsuit Manybeads et al v. the United States. She lived her entire life following traditional ways on her ancestral lands and leaves a strong legacy of young resisters to carry on her fight.
She was taken from us recently by COVID-19.
Rest in Power Mae Tso.

Yá’át’ééh,
7/14/20 - We are shutting down our shop for now (hopefully not too long!) as we have shifted our organizing to focus full time on mutual aid through Kinłani Mutual Aid during this pandemic.
We intend on honoring all orders made recently and those that are seriously overdue. We sincerely apologize for our lack of response to some of your inquiries regarding the status of your orders. If you would rather have a refund please email us with the order number and subject "requesting refund." We hand print all shirts and organize orders at Táala Hooghan Infoshop where Kinłani Mutual Aid is now operating out of. We have limited space to manage printing right now (though that may change in the next few weeks).
Again, we sincerely apologize for this issue and will be sending all outstanding orders ASAP.
Ahe' hee',
The Indigenous Action Team
