On January 21, 2017, we were proud to be in Eureka as indigenous women marched alongside five-fingered-beings from every background. We stand for our Mother Earth. We stand for equality to show this new administration that we will not go quietly into the wind. Our treaty rights need to be upheld, sovereignty respected, and justice restored. At the end of the march the indigenous women gathered on the lawn, held hands in a circle and prayed for our communities to come together in a good way:
Indigenous Women Rise in Eureka
Millions have marched and we’re honored to take to Eureka’s streets, demonstrate and join hands with Indigenous women from Karuk, Hupa, Yurok, Wiyot, and Tolowa-Diné, in solidarity with all people from every corner of the earth. We are committed to justice and equality. We are committed to protecting the water, the life-blood of Mother Earth.
