How To Be An Ally To Indigenous Peoples

Text & Sponsor: Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign

www.honorthetworow.org

2013 marks the 400th Anniversary of the Two Row Wampum Treaty between the Dutch and the Haudenosaunee {Iroquois}. This treaty was a model for all Indigenous/Euro treaties that followed.

[This is on a poster, with beautiful artwork by artist Josephine M. Cook, Onondaga.

It is available as poster, postcard, bookmark, from a WONDERFUL site,

SyracuseCulturalWorkers.com

which is a WONDERFUL resource for posters, stickers, postcards, greeting cards, bookmarks, buttons, mugs, T-shirts, books, tapes, etc. Very artistic and great causes - EVERYthing they do! DO go to that site and see MUCH MORE that they have to offer.]

Here is what is listed on the Poster, How to be an Ally to Indigenous Peoples:

Care for the Earth/  Give thanks frequently

Respect and support Indigenous sovereignty

Learn about treaties

Remember that treaties are the Supreme Law of the United States {Article 6, US Constitution}

Demand that our nation honor its treaty commitments

Consider future generations in all your actions

Question and resist stereotypes/ including team names and mascots

Learn about and reject the "Doctrine of Discovery"

Reach out to your Indigenous neighbors

Slow down and listen more than you talk/  Notice where you are

Live with gratitude

Live lightly on the earth

Work to end global warming

Support renewable energy/  Stop hydrofracking, dirty coal and uranium mining

Don't co-opt Native cultures or ceremonies/  Return sacred objects

Read and promote the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day every October 12

Learn about the people indigenous to wherever you are

Read Native Authors/  Support Native craftspeople, businesses and events

Remember that all beings {animals and plants} are your relatives not your resources

Appreciate the diversity of nations, cultures and people

======================

Also there is a poster at that site, SyracuseCulturalWorkers.com, for Idle No More:

Aboriginal rights movement started by women in November, 2012 as a reaction to legislative abuses of Indigenous treaty rights by the Canadian government. The movement takes particular issue with the omnibus budget Bill C-45 which effectively removed protection of waterways in the Canadian wilderness. The bill gives multinational corporations direct and easy acess to Indigenous waters and land. Idle No More empowers Indigenous peoples and allies to stand up for their nations, lands, treaties and sovereignty. It's about love, about honoring human dignity and about holding sacred our relationship with the land.
