Honrando a las comunidades indígenas

Do you have ideas, corrections, or recommendations for this page? Please let us know.
"An apology or an acknowledgement is one thing, but  what are you going to do next?”
-President Robert Larsen of the Lower Sioux Indian Community 

Colonization, systemic racism, and violence has forcibly removed and marginalized the voices of Indigenous communities around the world. The environmental and social violence seen throughout the world embody the destructive nature of colonialism and capitalism and show the consequence of silencing the voices and wisdom of Indigenous Communities.

 

As we work to heal our communities and our Earth, we must center and be guided by the voices of Indigenous leaders. If their land was not forcibly taken from them, we would not be facing the environmental crises we are.

 

Check out resources and ideas below for some ways to get started and learn about the people native to the land where you live here. If you have recommended resources to be added to this collection, please email us.

Maneras de actuar

Únase a nosotros para elegir algunas de las siguientes formas de apoyar a las comunidades indígenas. Como dice el presidente Robert Larsen, de la comunidad india del Bajo Sioux, "una disculpa o un reconocimiento es una cosa, pero ¿qué vas a hacer a continuación?"  

 

 

  • Siga a cinco nuevas organizaciones de resistencia al oleoducto lideradas por indígenas en las redes sociales y comprométase a asistir al menos a una manifestación antes de fin de año.  

 

  • Desafíe a mi sistema de parques local a ofrecer pases de temporada gratuitos a los pueblos indígenas y comuníquese con el miembro de la junta de mi parque para comenzar la conversación dentro del próximo mes.  

 

  • Deje de comprar joyas de marcas culturalmente apropiadas de inmediato y, en su lugar, apoye a las empresas de propiedad nativa.  

 

 

 

  • Visite algunas de las páginas de recursos a continuación para obtener más información sobre la historia, la cultura y la lucha de los pueblos indígenas contra el colonialismo de los colonos.
