As a Xicana I understand that settler colonialism plays out in the lives of Indigenous peoples all over the world. So my political solidarity is built on a shared experience of displacement and is accompanied by a true commitment to stand by my Palestinian brothers and sisters.  This piece honors the many kinds of resistance to Israeli occupation by the Palestinian people.
