Overturning Roe v. Wade further harms Native women
Native Organizers Alliance responds to the decision by the Supreme Court to
overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Native Organizers Alliance has seen the power of our people when we unite to defend our rights.
The fight isn’t over, and we will do all we can to support tribes and Native organizations in their
work to protect and defend reproductive rights.”
Q&A: Native Community Organizer Training Participant
For the Native Organizers Alliance National Native Community Organizer Training in May, 19 participants were brought together in Federal Way, WA for a week of sharpening grassroots organizing skills using traditional Indigenous values. The curriculum is designed to create a foundation for Native power building for social change and strengthening sovereignty.
We’ve asked April Fournier (Navajo), Program Manager at Advance Native Political Leadership, to share her reflections and learnings from the week with us.
Indigenizing the National Parks Webinar
We are grateful that so many tuned in to our “Indigenizing the National Parks: Yellowstone’s 150th Anniversary” webinar on May 26th.
During the webinar, we led a discussion on the necessity for federal-tribal co-governance of our National Parks and public lands. We’re hoping the Yellowstone anniversary and efforts around the inclusion of Indigenous voices and traditional ecological knowledge leads to change within the National Park System.
A special thanks to our guest speakers for sharing their work, wisdom, and insights with us: Wes Martel of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, Dr. Shane Doyle of Mountain Time Arts, and Jason Baldes of the Wind River Tribal Buffalo Initiative and the National Wildlife Federation.
