LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD
stand in solidarity with indigenous peoples & mother earth
On September 17, 1851 the historic Fort Laramie Treaty was signed between the United States and representatives of the Cheyenne, Sioux, Arapaho, Crow, Assiniboine, Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nations. Indeed, the United States acknowledged that all the land covered by the treaty was Indian territory.
Before the ink was dry... the treaty was broken.
In the century that followed, over 500 treaties made with Native Nations were also broken—which has degraded the lives of Indigenous peoples and the health of Mother Earth.
