After more than a DECADE of disenrollments, we finally have more supporters rallying against this disgraceful actions by corrupt tribal governments. Joining this blog in the fight, are prominent Indigenous Artists and Leaders. MANY OF YOU ask, who will help us...well NOW, you have your answer.
NATIONAL “STOP DISENROLLMENT” VISUAL ADVOCACY MOVEMENT WILL LAUNCH ON MON. FEB. 8, AT 2PM PST
American Indigenous Artists, Actors, Musicians, Elected Leaders, Educators, Advocates, Professionals To Proclaim #stopdisenrollment
Seattle, WA – On Monday, February 8, 2016 at 2 PM PST, a collective of Indigenous People spanning the U.S., will commence a national advocacy campaign: #stopdisenrollment. The crowd-sourced, online campaign is best understood by visiting www.stopdisenrollment.com.
There and through social media channels, Indigenous Peoples who believe that disenrollment is contrary to tribal values and traditions, and thus should be stopped, will engage in a powerful, uncensored mode of visual self-expression. All Indigenous Peoples are encouraged to participate.
#stopdisenrollment is a leaderless movement, which intends to first attract representatives of all 567 federally-recognized tribes in the United States, and ultimately attract as many participants as there are disenrolled Indians.
Currently, over 80 federally recognized tribes–or 15% of all tribes–in 17 states, have disenrolled their kin. It is estimated that as many as 10,000 Indigenous Peoples have been disenrolled in the U.S.
