TRAIL OF BROKEN TREATIES

Together we have #PeoplesPower

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.

We’re on a journey to create a wave of momentum for the 50th Anniversary of the “Trail of Broken Treaties” caravan to Washington, D.C., 17 September 2022 — and to generate over a million petition signatures to challenge the United States and its Congress to #RightTheWrong and honor at least one of the more than 500 broken treaties made with Native Nations.
