We often hear that the youth of this generation are dedicated more to updating their Facebook profiles and glued to their other social media pages than concern for the issues and global affairs happening around them. While this might be true for many youth, and adults alike, it is certainly not the case for all.
Last Real Indians was recently contacted by two incredible brothers Itzcuauhtli Roske-Martinez, 10 & Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, 13 (Aztec) sharing a hip hop video they made about protecting and standing up for Mother earth. It is truly LRInspiring to see these young brothers sharing and spreading a message of concern over the well being of our shared mother earth.
The brothers are also involved with the organization Earth Guardians whose goal is to: The Earth Guardians are committed to standing up and protecting the Earth, the Water, the Air and the Atmosphere so that our generation, and those to follow, will inherit a healthy, sustainable and habitable planet.
We salute these two young Aztec warriors and commended them on their beautiful words and actions. Maka Ina, Mother Earth, is in desperate need of more warriors, all of ages, to stand up and protect her against the abuses by multinational corporations, militarism, and a world view that values profit over life.
