Native Organizers Alliance

$5,000 to support the Red Road to DC project, a Native-led strategy, including a cross-country tour connecting twenty of the most vital Native-led struggles where sacred lands, waters, and species are endangered by extractive industries. Ceremonial welcomes, live-streamed and outdoor events, and evocative media production helped to strengthen grassroots organizing and build support for the sovereign right of tribal nations to shape local and federal solutions. The tour culminated with the gifting of a totem pole from Lummi carvers and spiritual leaders to the Department of the Interior, which led by Rep. Deb Haaland, the first Native American cabinet secretary in US history.
