This Indigenous Peoples' Day we're fighting to decolonize!


Today is an important day for indigenous peoples around the world. Dear friend,

On this Indigenous Peoples’ Day, we stand in solidarity with our indigenous partners across the world as they continue to put out fires, fight atrocities, and protect the planet.

Today is an important opportunity to acknowledge the brutal history of the colonization of indigenous peoples — and to recognize that they continue to face modern-day colonialism, including land theft, the plundering of their resources, and the destruction of their communities.

We need your help to stamp out colonialism. We’re campaigning to: #DecolonizeConservation
Indigenous peoples are the best conservationists, and we’re fighting against the theft of their ancestral lands in favor of an approach to conservation that values their incredible ecological knowledge. #DecolonizeEducation
We’re demanding an end to #FactorySchools – a colonial form of education that aims to erase indigenous identity and subjects children to emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Indigenous education must be under indigenous control. #DecolonizeDevelopment
We’ve been standing up for the rights of uncontacted tribes for the last 50 years. We've stopped miners, ranchers and loggers in their tracks from invading indigenous territories and worked with indigenous partners to protect millions of acres of land.
None of this work would be possible without you! Join us today in celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Day by calling for an end to colonialism.

Help us spread the word by watching and sharing our fantastic short film, "There You Go!", which takes a satirical look at the supposed benefits of "development."
Share the film on Facebook! As ever, thank you for your support,
