Wa’echun Hour: Understanding Decolonization with Davidica Little Spotted Horse and Olowan Sara Martinez

We welcome to the show, one of the Movement’s most powerful leaders. She has paved the way for younger activists, and continues to do important social justice work. She has made a major impact on the history of the Pine Ridge Reservation through her work shutting down the sales of alcohol in a neighboring border town. That once ravaged our people for decades.

Right now she’s focused on her work with the youth in decolonization. She understands how important it is to empower our youth, who are our future generations. She has made it her goal to educate those, who do not understand how colonization affects us in our daily lives. Olowan’s leadership, has been the grounding force for other Native activists to stand up and protect. She will bring us much needed knowledge and direction.

About Special Guest, Olowan Sara Martinez

The daughter of AIM activist Angel Martinez who was a vital part of the stand off at Wounded Knee 73, and activist mother Vicki Thunder Hawk, Olowan has continued her parents fight for justice on Native Lands. Martinez has innate skills for frontline work. Her strategist mindset has made her vital to the efforts in bringing much needed change to Native Country. Most recent She has actively been leading the way towards decolonization and why it’s important in our Native communities.

The show will discuss what Decolonization is, the importance of it and why we need it in our community. Also to talk about the work she’s already done. She was the lead activist is shutting down alcohol sales in Whiteclay, a border town on our reservation line. That town has been there selling alcohol since the early 1900’s profiting off our people’s addictions and participating in violence there. The closing down of Whiteclay has made a major impact on the future of our reservation.
