  • Call on Congress to immediately address tribal Sacred Lands protection

    Dear Editor,

    Tribal Nations, Native rights organizations, and social/environmental justice allies are calling on the U.S. Senate Indian Affairs Committee and other Congressional Committees to conduct hearings concerning federal land management practices that threaten or destroy tribal sacred lands.

    The Advocates for the Protection of Sacred Sites, The Save the Peaks Coalition, Indigenous Environmental Network, International Indian Treaty Council, Seventh Generation Fund, Vallejo Inter-Tribal Council, and Morning Star Institute have joined together to address the lack of federal government cooperation and consultation with tribes in balancing destructive corporate development of tribal ancestral lands and honoring tribal rights and needs.

Join the online community forum celebrating Native American Culture, Pow Wows, tribes, music, art, and history.
