Our pressure is working, now let's turn up the heat.


The Red Road to DC is an online and on-the-ground mobilization connecting 20 Native-led struggles to protect sacred lands, waters, and wildlife.


Learn more in the email below and sign now to join those calling on President Biden to take immediate action. The Biden-Harris Administration must honor Free Prior and Informed Consent to protect these lands.


In this moment of climate and social crisis, indigenous people are on the frontlines of struggled to defend and care for 80 percent of the world’s biodiversity. From the Trans-mountain Pipeline to Line 3 and Line 5, to the Gulf of Mexico and all across turtle island, our environmental advocacy must include advocacy for Indigenous rights.


The U.S. government is supposed to abide by treaty law and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples – which requires them to engage with and gain consent from Native Nations before pursuing pipelines, drilling, dams, and other destructive projects that affect Native lands, waters, and resources.


But the federal government has failed in its responsibilities, over and over again. And so far, President Biden isn’t doing much better. Will you sign on to this petition with native and non-native allies demanding the Biden Administration uphold Native People’s Free Prior & Informed Consent, as guaranteed by the United Nations?

Tell President Biden: Uphold the treaties. No Projects without consent.

Right now, Native American activists and allies are transporting a 25 foot totem pole from Washington State to Washington DC, visiting tribal nations and Native communities leading efforts to protect sacred places along the way. The whole journey is called the Red Road to DC, and it’s the product of collaboration between the House of Tears Carvers, Se’Si’Le, Native Organizers Alliance, IllumiNative, and The Natural History Museum — all of whom 198 methods has worked with in the past on projects to protect the planet and indigenous rights.

You can learn more about the journey at the website or by following #RedRoadtoDC on social media – where we have been sharing live streams, photos and videos from the events so far.

The journey ends in Washington, DC later this month, with a blessing, exhibition at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, and delivering the pole and all your signatures to the Biden-Harris Administration. Act Now. Stand in solidarity with native organizers and allies by signing the petition: President Biden must strengthen environmental protections and honor Native Nations’ rights to Free, Prior & Informed Consent.
