More Thoughts From Black Mesa

The official history of the United States is inextricably linked to notions of progress, Manifest Destiny, and the triumph of technology over natural boundaries. The forward push of modernity has been packaged and sold as a foregone conclusion, an inevitable force; but modernity, like technology, is in no way neutral. Those of us with a critique of “modernity” who live in technologically advanced societies have to of course grapple with a good deal of cognitive dissonance as we approach this subject. Like all people who have internalized European “Enlightenment” based notions of progress, we’re in the position of captive vis-à-vis captor, dependent on our abusers for our very survival, mentally and physically dependent on those who exploit us. Yet some pockets of resistance to the seemingly unstoppable juggernaut of modernity remain.

People who live on Black Mesa and the surrounding areas on the Diné (aka Navajo) reservation are still working to maintain and preserve their traditional ways of being. If you would like to fight against cultural genocide and support families struggling against imperialism, relocation and resource extraction, check out the Black Mesa Indigenous Support website to learn how you can get involved.

Klee Benally on Decolonization

While in Flagstaff I caught up with the very busy Klee Benally who was gracious enough to sit down and discuss, among other interesting things, the subtle and not so subtle differences between decolonization and anti-colonialism.

Klee Benally is a long time activist and is engaged in the ongoing struggle for indigenous liberation. He is also the former lead singer of the punk rock band, Blackfire, which he co-founded with his siblings in 1989.
