KJZZ Phoenix, Arizona

Dear Ms. Joffe-Block,

Thank you for covering the perspective of our organization in the NPR piece concerning the contempt of court charges against Mr. Arpaio before Judge Snow.

The purpose of this message to establish a clarification regarding the terms of identity you used to represent our protest action at the courthouse and in other future venues. We must insist that you not refer to our participation in the public debate on Human Rights issues of our community as one that purports to represent a "Latino" constituency in any shape or form.

Please consider this message as an opportunity to engage with our organization of Indigenous Peoples in respectful dialogue and conversation to advance the debate regarding Human Rights issues in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo Territories (US-MEXICO 1848) from a position of mutual Respect and Dignity for all peoples, including for the first time since passage of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in 2007, we the Nican Tlacah Cemanahuac, Indigenous Peoples of Mexico as: 

We hope to coordinate an appointment with you soon to follow up with this conversation.

All the best at your continuing efforts in the public media.

NPR Report on civil contempt of court charges against Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona J. Arpaio #‎JusticiaCastigoArpaio NPR Report on civil contempt of court charges against the Twisted, Obstinate, Ugly, Grandstanding and Hateful (TOUGH) Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona J. Arpaio before Judge Murray Snow for the "intentional", "deliberate", and "purposely" violations of court orders in order to consolidate electoral advantage with the racist constituencies of Arizona, birthing ground for the AZ SB1070 fuse that ignited the resurgence of the national pathology and political pus, AKA the Festering Destiny Man of White Supremacy of America, Donald Trump.

Las denominaciones de "Latino", "Hispano", "Inmigrante" e "Ilegal" son términos imprecisos e incorrectos para nuestras familias que se derivan de la colonización ilegal de Abya Yala comenzado en 1492, y por lo tanto serán rechazados y resistidos por las familias de los Comités de Defensa del Barrio en el Espíritu de la Verdad de nuestros pueblos ancestrales de Anáhuac y en la REGENERACION de nuestro DERECHO DE AUTO-DETERMINACIÓN como Nican Tlacah, Pueblos Indígenas.


The denominations of "Latino" "Hispanic" "Immigrant" and "Illegal" are inaccurate and incorrect terms for our families that derive from the illegal COLONIZATION of Abya Yala beginning in 1492, and therefore will be challenged and resisted by the families of the Comités de Defensa del Barrio in the Spirit of Truth of our ancestral nations and pueblos of Anahuac and in REGENERATION of our RIGHT of SELF-DETERMINATION as Nican Tlacah, Indigenous Peoples.
