Tribes and Allies Gather on Yankton Sioux Reservation to Oppose the Tar Sands and Keystone XL Pipeline

tar_sands_poster.jpgJoin Us in Solidarity as We:

  • Honor all Indigenous First Nations, Tribes, Allies, and the Enduring Unity of the Great Sioux Nation and to Commemorate the 150th Anniversary and to Reaffirm the Ihanktonwan Oyate of the Oceti Sakowin 1863 Peace Treaty between the Ihanktonwan, Ponca, Pawnee Nations, and witnessed by the United States Government.
  • Notify President Obama and the U.S. Government that the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline would be a further grave abrogation of the January 23, 1863 Treaty and possibly other related treaties and would have very regrettable consequences.  For instance, on December 21st 2012 by Resolution, the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council also stated they were “vehemently opposed to the construction of the TransCanada/Keystone XL Pipeline Project on any Aboriginal or Treaty lands”.
  • Hold a Ceremonial Grand Council to Affirm a Unifying International Treaty between Indigenous Peoples and All Our Allies Who Seek to Protect the Sacred from the Tar Sands and the Keystone XL Pipeline. This International Treaty builds upon the Save the Fraser River Declaration, Rights of Mother Earth Accord, Indigenous Leaders Spiritual Declaration, and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
  • Build the Foundation for a Spiritually-Grounded, Principle-Centered Interdependent Campaign for Unprecedented Unified Action to Protect Our Sacred Mother Earth.
