#1405- On Being Indigenous

This week, Latino USA examines the lives of indigenous people throughout the Americas. We hear about the Zapatista community, twenty years after their uprising in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. We hear about the self-defense campaign carried out by farmers in the Mexican state of Michoacán. April Salazar shares her essay on ancestry. Producer Michael Simon Johnson brings us a story about three indigenous languages, and we hear about efforts to reach a Mayan community in Omaha. The Latino USA team debates whether Justin Bieber is deportable. And we remember Nuyorican poet Tato Laviera.
