Mayo and Tohono O'odham Zapatistas, going the extra mile
Tohono O'odham and Mayo traveled the rugged five hour ride in the backs of trucks to the heart of the Zapatista stronghold in La Realidad, along the Guatemalan border, in July, 2004. One of the Mayo Zapatistas was arrested when he returned home, along with another Mayo leader, when Mexican police stormed his village on the Sinoloa and Sonora border. The Mayo village was the first to proclaim itself a Zapatista village on the west coast of Mexico. The Mayo Zapatistas remain in prison in Mexico. Photo Brenda Norrell
