Sacred Water, Sacred Forests Camp
May
27
to May 29

Sacred Water, Sacred Forests Camp

A Gathering for Celebration, Community, Movement Building, Ecology, and Land Defense!

Join us this Memorial Day weekend for a tour of sacred lands threatened by the proposed Southern Nevada Water Authority groundwater pipeline. We will spend three days visiting the communities affected by the water grab, learning about the project and the threatened sacred lands and waters. For those already familiar, we’ll also be holding workshops on the ecology and politics of the region at a basecamp in Spring Valley. The tour will begin at Cleve Creek campground, 12 miles north of Highway 6-50 on road 893, at the base of the Schell Creek Mountains.

Driven by real estate speculation, the Southern Nevada Water Authority—the corporate-like utility that provides water to the Las Vegas area—is planning to extract millions of gallons of water annually from the eastern Great Basin.

The Great Basin is a beautiful and remote place, full of rugged limestone mountains, broad valleys, a startling array of wildlife, and some of the remotest locations in the west. It is sacred to many indigenous people like the Goshute, Shoshone, Paiute, and Washoe nations, who have lived and died here for countless generations.

The Water Tour will take place in Eastern Nevada, beginning near Great Basin National Park and continuing through Spring, Snake, Cave, Lake, and Delamar Valleys. Though we’ll be near the full-service towns of Ely and Baker, we will otherwise be mostly on remote dirt roads.

This is a family-friendly event. All are welcome.

More details forthcoming, this event will be similar to the 2016 event which can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1590794484581092/

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!
Apr
24
to May 5

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

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. http://bit.ly/PFIIRegistration

We will be marching to support the role of science as an important source of information in guiding policy, both locally and nationally. This March will take place nationally and internationally with community members, educators, and scientists from around the globe. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted. Policy change and community outreach will start with Marches for Science world-wide, but it is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science.
