The Stolen Land/Hoarded Resources tour, where poor people tour rich neighborhoods across the US and knock on doors humbly asking that wealth hoarders redistribute their money and assets, comes to SillyCon Valley (Mountain View). This powerful nation-wide tour was launched in 2016 in California, This tour through stolen indigenous land and the neighborhoods of the very rich, is led by 1st Nations Ohlone Warrior Corrina Gould, Poverty Skola" Lisa "Tiny" Gray-Garcia, fellow Race, Disability, Indigenous Skolaz from POOR Magazine/Prensa POBRE,  and Leroy Moore from Krip Hop Nation.

The tour is loosely based on the Bhoodan Movement of India launched by Vinoba Bhave who walked through India asking wealthy "land-owners" to gift their land to landless peoples. With a similar vision, this small group of landless and indigenous peoples being hit the hardest by displacement and gentrification will be Intentionally crossing the invisible and visible lines between the land and resource hoarders aka the very rich and the victims of generations of white supremacy, theft, colonization, criminalization, racism, eugenics and silencing, aka the very poor. 

"We homeless, working-class, disabled and 1st Nations people are peacefully crossing the visible and invisible lines that separate us poor folks from the "very rich" to ask them to begin the healing, change-making, process of decolonizing, redistributing and reparating their stolen and/or hoarded, inherited wealth and/or land ," Concluded Lisa Tiny Gray-Garcia, formerly houseless co-founder of POOR Magazine and author of Criminal of Poverty Growing Up Homeless in America and the upcoming PeoplesTextBook- Poverty Scholarship - Poor People Theory, Art, Words and Tears Across Mama Earth

As we humbly and peacefully walk into "wealthy" neighborhoods across the "U.S.", we have offered land and stolen resource hoarders a chance to begin the very serious work of Decolonization by redistributing one or more of their hoarded and bordered stolen indigenous territory, buildings, homes, stocks, bonds, cash or trust funds to landless and indigenous people in the form of what we call Community Reparations. Alternatively, when people are unwilling or unable to redistribute their stolen or hoarded wealth, we will be asking land-stealers and/or wealth-hoarders to begin an active  dialogue on the concept of Community Reparations, Decolonization and Redistribution with us, the most impacted, the landless peoples, the very poor and colonized.

Two models that Homeless and 1st Nations folks are presenting is the poor people-led self-determined movement called Homefulness in Deep East Oakland (Huchuin Ohlone Land) as well as launch Homefulness movements in every city where unhoused and 1st Nations people dwell as well as the Sogorea Te Land Trust which is a Native Woman run land trust based in the land of the 1st peoples who lead it. 

In addition "tour guides" hope to use the tour to launch a Technology-fueled reparations/equity fund for the many displaced South Bay residents, as many of the tech companies have been responsible for the high speed gentrification of long-time residents in traditionally working class Black and Brown neighborhoods in the South Bay like East Palo Alto, Fremont and San Jose.
"To be clear this is not a protest, this is about sharing the medicine of redistribution and community reparations because we are all in a crisis of scarcity and hoarding and need to understand there is a different way to live and walk interdependently," said Lisa "Tiny" Gray-Garcia who will be speaking with Kim-Mai Cutler on her book and the concepts of Community Reparations at GoogleTalks proceeding the tour and asking the audience to join the tour -
