    The Payment: A Poem in Honor of Cinco de Mayo

    Richard Walker, Mexican/Yaqui, is a newspaper editor in Kitsap County, Washington, and is a correspondent for Indian Country Today Media Network. His poem “The Payment” pays tribute to Indigenous culture, heritage and pride in current day Mexico and commemorates Cinco de Mayo, which observes the Mexican army’s victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
