Today is September 30th and we are supporting Orange Shirt Day by actively working to disrupt systems that affect the next seven generations. All Native American Nations are calling on the Pope to rescind the Doctrine of Discovery, as it was used to justify colonizing Indigenous lands. We ask that you donate to a IRS Society to support ongoing searches and survivors. In addition, we also ask that you stay engaged in decolonization efforts with Indigenous Peoples and the land we share today and everyday.
Below is a list of references to educate yourself & get involved!
