Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

  • New York, NY

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City.

Standing Rock Rising - Madisonville

  • Madisonville, Kentucky

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and various other Indeginous grassroots leaders are calling on their allies and fellow water protectors across the country to dedicate an official day to stand for indeginous rights. Over the last year hundreds of protests around the nation have stood in support of Standing Rock at various times, including twice already in Madisonville. This is more than the DAPL protests though, this is for our children, this is for our future, this is for the sovereignty of Native Peoples around the world, this is for Unci Maka (Grandmother Earth).

While this is a Native American March on Washington we can do our part locally by standing in solidarity. Check out the website below for more information on the national march from Standing Rock themselves.

In solidarity with Standing Rock and the noDAPL movement, Red Road Awareness will hold an event in Louisville, KY. as Native Nations march in Washington DC on Friday, March 10, 2017. 

Our march will coincide with the DC march which begins at 10 a.m. We will journey across the Louisville walking bridge and back, then gather under the bridge for prayer. Matthew will speak about his time at Standing Rock (October - January), and we will hear from anyone else who spent time there and would like to share. 

Please join us as we walk in prayer with Native Nations on this sacred and powerful journey for clean water.
