I Stand with Standing Rock

  • Beale Street Landing Site Memphis TN

We are holding this water walk in solidarity with the water protectors standing strong for all of us at the camps of Oceti Sácowin, Rosebud, Black Hoop and Sacred Stone as well as those marching on Washington D.C. on this day. We will march/walk in prayer in a peaceful resistance. We will end our walk at City Hall and our starting location is TBA. Our demands are:

#TakeTheMeeting // President Trump must meet with tribal leaders to hear why it’s critical that the US government respect tribal rights. This administration must work with us.

#ConsentNotConsultation // Tribal interests cannot continue to be marginalized in favor of the interests of corporations and other governments. Consultation is not enough– we must require consent.

#NativeNationsRise // The Standing Rock movement is bigger than one tribe. It has evolved into a powerful global phenomenon highlighting the necessity to respect Indigenous Nations and their right to protect their homelands, environment and future generations. We are asking our Native relatives from across Turtle Island to rise with us.

We hope for this walk to be very intersectional and inclusive as this is not only an indigenous and environmental issue. We hope to see you there and hear your concerns and support.
