Border Patrol Agents Shoot and Kill Tohono O’odham Artist in Arizona

HeadlineMay 23, 2023

In Arizona, the FBI has launched an investigation into the fatal shooting of respected Tohono O’odham artist and leader Raymond Mattia, who was gunned down by Border Patrol agents outside his home last Thursday. Mattia lived in the community of Menagers Dam, just a few miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, and had called Border Patrol after finding a group of migrants on his property. Mattia’s family says he went outside when the agents arrived and that he was about two feet from his front door when they heard gunshots. His relatives are demanding justice as authorities have released few details into what happened.
