Public talk: Indigenous Self-Determination and non-Native Responsibility/Accountability with Marcus Trujillo

This is a past event.

Our speaker will be Marcus Trujillo of Pueblo Alliance.

Marcus Trujillo, Gààtaiyàà | He/Him/His, is from the Pueblo of Laguna in affiliation with the Village of Paraje and Seama. The Pueblo of Laguna is one of the 23 Indigenous Sovereign tribes that have traditional and historical territories in “New Mexico”. Marcus graduated from the University of New Mexico in May 2020 with a BA in Religious Studies, a minor in Psychology and a certificate in Peace & Justice Studies. Marcus now works as the Communications Designer for the Pueblo Action Alliance, a Womxn-led grassroots organization in Tiwa Territory. Marcus also works with the Office of Laguna Learning, an office that focuses on traditional language sustainability within the Pueblo of Laguna. Within this work, Marcus merges graphic design with passions for social and environmental justice as he moves forward to use his talents to embody solidarity and allyship with BIPOC communities. This work is meaningful to Marcus as he believes that the healing of the land and people start with confronting the many injustices that take place against marginalized people throughout Turtle Island and across the world. There is strength within the community that shares a common memory and acknowledges the violence that takes place in our homelands.
