There are thousands of stories from the Indigenous Peoples Movement that never seem to make headlines, whether it’s the Nasa Peoples bold removal of paramilitary forces from their lands in Colombia or the impressive occupation of Brazil’s House of Representatives by 700 indigenous leaders or the disturbing launch of a national campaign to eradicate tribal sovereignty by the largest anti-indian organization in the United States.
For the past 10 years, Intercontinental Cry Magazine has sought out these stories and many others like them, because Indigenous Peoples are comprehensively ignored by mainstream and alternative media. IC’s team of volunteer journalists has worked tirelessly to make sure we all know what’s happening around us and what’s happening in our names.
“In a media landscape made up of lies, flash, giant blind spots and corporatized sites of distraction, Intercontinental Cry is a trustworthy pathway to the truth where people who are committed to understanding Indigenous realities can gain insight and information to illuminate and activate their struggles,” wrote Taiaiake Alfred, Professor of Indigenous Governance at the University of Victoria and author of Wasáse.
IC has launched a fund drive on Indiegogo to help put indigenous people’s struggles front and center in the year ahead. Read about it – and pitch in if you can – here.
