State of Iowa Capitol Building West Steps
IOWA will Stand With Standing RockmarchThe Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and grassroots Indigenous organizers are calling upon us to join them in solidarity on March 10th, 2017 as they march in prayer and action in Washington, DC.

Tribal leaders and members from across the nation will be lobbying for Indigenous Nations rights to tribal sovereignty, and the rights to protect their homelands, environment and future generations in the days leading up to the March.

For those of us who are unable to attend in Washington, DC, we are holding a peaceful gathering on March 10th at the Iowa State Capitol Building in prayer and support for all Meskwaki members, Indigenous people and environment and water protectors as we continue the fight to protect our home, our environment and fight to maintain tribal sovereignty right here in Iowa.

For more information on the event planned in Washington, DC, please visit nativenationsrise.org and standwithstandingrock.net/march.
