Radicalizing and disrupting colonized spaces
Seeding Sovereignty is an an Indigenous-led collective, works to radicalize and disrupt colonized spaces through land, body, and food sovereignty work, community building, and cultural preservation.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is aiding the Indigenous Navajo Nation, Jicarilla Apache Nation, and especially the Zia, Zuni, and San Felipe Pueblos of New Mexico. The group identified these communities as some of the most populated Indigenous communities that live in food deserts and are impacted by extractive industries like fracking, mining, and refining which contribute to a range of human and environmental violations. They are focusing on mental health of those in isolation and the elderly, providing kits to make masks for their community, to contain the spread of COVID-19. They are also conducting awareness-raising webinars to share Indigenous knowledge on healing.
