The Federal Government's has recently introduced
bills and actions of extended aggression towards the
Western Shoshone Nation, and the Dine' People of Big
Mountain. And, the Dept of Livestock continues to slaughter
the last remaining wild Buffalo.

These Indigenous women representatives have and are
presenting these issues to the United Nations, and
lawsuits in U.S. Courts.

The U.N. recently passed a Declaration by
unanimous support for the proclamation by the Western
Shoshone Nation of human rights violations of
Indigenous People.

And, the Western Shoshone and others have filed a
successful injunction in court to delay the reinstated
bombing at the Nevada Test site, called 'Divine
Strike'.

Dine and Hopi representatives have a lawsuit in
court against a coal mining multinational for the
depletion of our 2nd largest Aquafir.
And, they are preparing injunctions to stop a bill
in Senate that is the final relocation of the
traditional Dine' People at Big Mountain.
Their work has, and will, set precedence in
national and international courts.
We invite you to a very inspiring event. And to
help Honor the work they have done and are doing.
Nationally Sponsored by: Indigenous Women's
Network, Seventh Generation Fund, Western Shoshone
Defense Project , and, Feminists for a
Gift Economy.
