Fighting Structural Violence

Eloisa Tamez, Lipan Apache grandmother, has been sued by Homeland Security for refusing permission to build a border wall across her property. A relative of Jumano Apache Esequiel Hernandez (who was murdered in 1997 by U.S. Marines while herding goats), Professor Tamez says she is continuing to do what she has always done — fighting structural violence against indigenous peoples. In 1950, Eloisa Garcia Tamez led a local fight against segregation in public schools.
