The Siouan people of NC and VA experience disproportionate impacts due to ongoing extractive industries. With a recent boom of industrialized fracking across the landscape, Indigenous leaders in VA/NC regions advocate for the protection of their cultural landscapes and communities. 7 Directions of Service is fiscally sponsored by Eastern Woodland Lacrosse.

Supporting the No MVP Pipeline. Indigenous delegations from all over Turtle Island are gathering to advocate for their stricter and stronger protections for their cultural landscapes. Indigenous grassroots leaders are calling for justice and an end to the era of sacrifice zones in the face of federal agency actions that continue a legacy of extractive colonialism and assault against communities. Bundle of Arrows Coalition members are calling on the Biden Administration to finally address the legacy of oil and gas and other extractive industries that have adversely impacted the people, the land, water and air of the VA/NC region.

For my Occaneechi relatives, we would spell it: Manī enīse
Please order your shirt, it ends on August 23, 2021.
