She began her work in the American Indian Movement (AIM) shortly after, and it has been her devotion to Indigenous people's rights that has guided her activism in the decades since.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIn the 1980s, she traveled to Nicaragua frequently to assist the Miskito Indians in a land dispute with the government. This indigenous group ended up being collateral damage in the Contra war that the US had become involved in with the Sandinistas. She wrote two books about her experiences there, and the damage inflicted on the Miskitos that she witnessed. As a disturbing aside, the land rights of the Miskito Indians are still, to this day, being trampled on by settlers, mostly in the service to capitalism.  This is also a trend that we is woven into the entire history of the United States and many other nations as well.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eShe's written some of the most respected texts on the United States and its treatment of Indigenous people, including An Indigenous People's History of the United States and Not a Nation of Immigrants. She advocates for self-determination for Indigenous peoples, and for a more honest approach to this nation's origin story. Her work shines a light on the fact that Indigenous history has been all but written out of our history books, and what is taught is often sanitized to within an inch of its life.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe cover of her book, \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.goodreads.com\/book\/show\/1048281.Roots_of_Resistance\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRoots of Resistance\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e, was used as the colorway and name inspiration for this month's yarn.

founder of a second-wave feminist organization called Cell 16, which was a women's liberation movement that advocated its members \"separate from men who are not consciously working for female

This indigenous group ended up being collateral damage in the Contra war that the US had become involved in with the Sandinistas. She wrote two books about her experiences there, and the damage inflicted on the Miskitos that she witnessed. As a disturbing aside, the land rights of the Miskito Indians are still, to this day, being trampled on by settlers, mostly in the service to capitalism.  This is also a trend that we is woven into the entire history of the United States and many other nations as well.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eShe's written some of the most respected texts on the United States and its treatment of Indigenous people, including An Indigenous People's History of the United States and Not a Nation of Immigrants. She advocates for self-determination for Indigenous peoples, and for a more honest approach to this nation's origin story.
