Throwback! ...

In what could be the largest climate change protest in history, Madonna Thunder Hawk, board member of the Lakota People's Law Project, will be leading the People's Climate March in New York City. There will be similar protests and marches taking place all over the world to engage in the issue of climate change and its implications. As stewards of this planet and its inhabitants, indigenous people will be leading the New York march demanding that leaders take notice of the problems that are occurring in conjunction with climate change, and that we must think of future generations in our present actions. These protests will precede the United Nations Summit that will take place this coming Tuesday the 23rd where 125 countries are expected to convene to announce non-binding initiatives to reduce carbon emissions that fuel global warming. Many believe that this UN Summit will not take the strident course necessary to affect real change in these issues; leaving all of our futures on a tenuous platform.

Honor the Earth is a Native-led organization, established by Winona LaDuke and Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, in 1993 to address the two primary needs of the Native environmental movement: the need to break the geographic and political isolation of Native communities and the need to increase financial resources for organizing and change. As a unique national Native initiative, Honor the Earth works to a) raise public awareness and b) raise and direct funds to grassroots Native environmental groups. We are the only Native organization that provides both financial support and organizing support to Native environmental initiatives. This model is based on strategic analysis of what is needed to forge change in Indian country, and it is based deep in our communities, histories, and long term struggles to protect the earth.
