Summary: President Trump signed his executive order to build the wall separating the US from Mexico. Whether he is aware of this or not, there is a Tohono O'odham tribe who has a reservation 62 miles of the border where Trump wants to build this border wall. The tribe has survived cleaving of their land for more than 150 years and the 62 miles worth of land belongs to them. The wall would split their tribe's traditional land in the US and Mexico. The wall is also going to threaten the ancestral connection that has not been terminated by even barriers, gates, cameras and Border Patrol agents that had become part of the landscape.
