Support for Kumiai Community, La Huerta, in Baja California, Mexico

sdindymedia

The community of La Huerta, in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico experienced a wildfire on June 20-21, 2015, that ravaged through their territory. The authorities in charge of wildfires acted in negligence and were inefficient in fulfilling their duties to control the fire. Also, the La Huerta community is in need of support to continue reclaiming their culture, maintaining their way of life, and keep their lands.

A letter from a member of the community, Ofelia, describes the fire, the interaction with the authorities, and struggles the community is facing. Because of significant damage to their lands, support to the community will help them maintain their traditional ways.

Ofelia's letter, in english and español, with Photos || To Support, e-mail ehuatoma@hotmail.com
