Camp MniLuzahan & Creek Patrol Response

Camp MniLuzahan & Creek Patrol Response

On October 16, 2020 The Luzahan Creek Patrol set up some Tee Pees to help the unsheltered Indigenous Brothers and Sisters in Rapid City. The Rapid City Police department raided the camp, six people were arrested and released that Saturday  morning. The Luzahan Creek Patrol sought permission from the Pine Ridge, Rose  Bud and Cheyenne River Tribe to set up a camp for the unsheltered outside of  Rapid City.

They have made a call for help in supplying the camp. #LandBack

We answered that call and are organizing a fundraiser and Covid-19 testing supplies. Thank you to NextGen Laboratory for your help to supply needs to the camp, Pine Ridge, Rosebud and Cheyenne River.

On December 10 & 11 Carl Moore (Chairman) and Dave John (Treasurer) Headed to Washington DC to stand in solidarity with the Gwich’In Nation, Their Ancestral lands, including the coastal plain ( “Iizhik Gwats’ an Gwandaii Goodlit” / “the sacred place where life begins” of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Northeast Alaska. The coastal plain provides a sheltered calving grounds for the Porcupine caribou herd that has sustained the Gwich’In people since time immemorial. The Trump Administration is launching an aggressive oil and gas leasing schedule to attempt to auction off the fragile coastal plain for destructive drilling.

Read the story as The Tour Heads to Utah.

The Gwich’In Nation are among many Indigenous leaders fighting this Administration’s reckless “energy dominance” agenda.
This agenda furthers the destructive legacy of colonization in the United States. When our fights are picked off one at a time, we are discounted. We are stronger together. Tribes and our allies nationwide are standing together to unite against the Trump Administration’s attack on our human rights.

Other Nations and Organizations that stood in solidarity with the Gwich’In Nation that attended.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Navajo Nation, Lummi Nation, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Muisca Tribe, Pokanoket Tribe, Senrca Nation, Corrizo/ Comecrudo Tribe of Texas, Oglala Lakota, Ponka Nation, Ahtna Dene, Native Nations, FANG, Utah Dine Bikeya, Indigenous Environmental Network, Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders, Society of Native Nations, L’eau est la vie camp and of course Pandos.

“These stories are really hard to process, to hear about and to have happen in our communities, to our families, to our sisters, to our cousins, to our aunties,” Pechanga said. “For me, dancing in honor of them is a way to heal my own heart and strengthen myself and strengthen my community. I dance for those who can’t.”

March for Climate Justice

March for Climate Justice

Saturday, April 29, in Salt Lake City its time to March for climate, justice, and clean energy jobs.
#UTclimatemarch #PeoplesClimate #ClimateMarch
Climate change is being ignored by this administration. Utah People’s Climate March stands with the worldwide march happening April 29, 2017, marking the 100th day of the Trump administration, whose policies have already targeted:

-Shrinking public lands / monuments
-EPA dissolution, Scott Pruitt appointment grant freezes, etc.
-Climate data being pulled from
government websites
-Climate change committee dissolution

We stand with the voices that aren’t often heard when climate change is brought up, specifically indigenous and minority communities and peoples all over the world that more closely depend on the environment for drinking water, agriculture, spiritual practices, and their overall way of life.

Come show your support for real climate reform and demanding change as we march from the Salt Lake City Public Library to the Governor’s Mansion to demand that Governor Herbert take climate change seriously. We will deliver to him the student-written Resolution on Climate Change that was summarily IGNORED by the Utah Legislature this session. We will demand action.
