Take Action this Earth Day
Categories: Environmental Protection (Climate Change)
We are the land … that is the fundamental idea embedded in Native American life … the Earth is the mind of the people as we are the mind of the earth. The land is not really the place (separate from ourselves) where we act out the drama of our isolate destinies. It is not a means of survival, a setting for our affairs … It is rather a part of our being, dynamic, significant, real. It is our self …
Paula Gunn Allen, Laguna Pueblo (1979)
Happy Earth Day. We hope that you find a meaningful way to celebrate this environmental movement.
Much of NARF’s work stems from a traditional responsibility to Mother Earth, our ancestors, and future generations. Every day, tribes work to protect ancestral homelands in places like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Bristol Bay, and Bears Ears. Your support makes these efforts possible.
Your donations create real change, like:
• Standing strong against the onslaught of pipelines and mining.
• Speaking out against climate change—a burden most-carried by indigenous peoples.
• Protecting our disappearing water sources.
This Earth Day, put yourself on the front lines of the fight for environmental justice. Take tangible action. Join the fight to protect our home and our self.
