Indigenous farmworkers
Itinerant farm work means putting in long, hard hours. It’s a job most people pass up.

But it’s long been an avenue for employment for people from south of the U.S. border. Numbers are hard to come by, but one survey found the number of Indigenous farmworkers in California alone reached 140,000.

On a day set aside to recognize noted farmworker advocate Cesar Chavez, Native America Calling will get a better understanding of the role Indigenous people play in working the nation’s agricultural economy.

Guests on Native America Calling
Chuy Martinez, cultural activist and a co-founder of the Recuerda a César Chávez Committee
