At The New Engagement, we are proud to discover and promote resistance art and literature examining a spectrum of issues challenging us all as human (and animal) beings, but especially as people of color, American Indians, indigenous people around the world, the LGBTQI community, the economically marginalized, and anyone else who isn't satisfied with the status quo. As a Native Indian, Tohono O'odham, I am especially keen to nurture and showcase art that is illuminating the struggles Native people face, and overcome, today, whether it's illegal or inhumane environmental destruction, violation of treaty rights, issues of poverty, health, education, housing, water and resource allocation, etc.... For instance, photo journalism from or essays about the actions taking place in and around the battle over the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, USA, or the Save Oak Flats movement east of Phoenix on the San Carlos Apache Tribe lands, just to name a few.
