Indigenous people from around the world are expected to convene in Washington, D.C. on Friday, January 18 to support the first-ever Indigenous Peoples March. This grassroots effort hopes to bring a voice to the injustices occurring in tribal communities, including major issues such as Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. The march also calls attention to the importance of preservation of sacred lands and water rights, and overall, is hoping to create visibility for first peoples around the globe. Alongside a curated schedule of speakers and performers, the Indigenous Peoples Movement is hosting a separate concert for a small fee.
If you are unable to journey to Washington, D.C. consider hosting a sister march! For more information and details regarding accommodations, parking, event schedule, and more, please visit www.indigenouspeoplesmovement.com.
