Featuring Art by Monty SInger
We need to wake up for our future generations and start rebuilding our communities, and our own sense of belonging to the land. This is a call for unity, not only amongst us, but also with our relatives from the South.
The decisions that are being taken right now will not only affect Native/Indigenous communities across the nation, but all communities of color. This is nothing new. Indigenous communities around the world have been fighting the devastating effects that Transnational companies have had on Indigenous land to extract natural resources. These tendencies have displaced our people and it continues to have negative effects on our health, youth, and communities at large.
Come learn more from community speakers, Indigenous issues, and how to get involved and support.
