PROTECT SACRED SITES

The United States of America can no longer circumvent its responsibilities to Native Peoples. It’s time to honor and implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) for the generations to come.
— Robby Romero

In 1993, Robby Romero’s rockumentary film, Makoce Wakan: Sacred Earth, premiered as a VHI World Alert Special on MTV Networks following a screening and press conference at the United States Senate Rotunda in Washington D.C. The film was created to help cultivate awareness and support for the protection of Native Peoples’ Sacred Sites and the amendment of the 1978 American Indian Religious Freedom Act.

Today, in the U.S. Congress and in U.S. court rooms, Native Peoples are still having to protect sacred sites, human rights, and religious freedom from governments who were taken over long ago by the corporate state.

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. delineates and defines the individual and collective rights of Indigenous Peoples. The Declaration is the most comprehensive international instrument on the rights of Indigenous Peoples.
