Native sacred sites along the Colorado River are facing the worst threat ever from off-road vehicles, vandals and most recently, solar power mega-projects, says veteran activist Alfredo Figueroa. He argues in a new book that thousands of petroglyphs, geoglyphs and images, as well as the Mojave and Chemehuevi oral tradition, relate these sacred sites to the Mexica creation story. Figueroa joins this program to talk in depth about the birthplace of the Azteca/Mexica, the long sought after “Cuna de Aztlán,” and how to stop the destruction of these ancient sites.

Guest: Alfredo Figueroa, author and historian, founder of La Cuna De Aztlán Sacred Sites Protection Circle, Blythe, CA,
