Stop Tribal Genocide Coordinates a March to Protect Civil Rights.
A Native Civil Rights March that deals with Issues that are plaguing Indian Country Today.
The two day event will take place at the State Capitol on October 6, 2016 and The Bureau of Indian Affairs Regional Office on October 7, 2016. Members of Stop Tribal Genocide and fellow protesters will meet up at the State Capitol and speak about topics pertaining to: Tribal Disenrollment, Pipelines, Fracking, Federal Recognition and Honoring of Treaties, Police Brutality, Abolishing Columbus Day, Annexing Native American Mascots and the Identity Theft of Native American Children. The first day will culminate with a March around the Capitol building. Stop Tribal Genocide will end the protest on Friday, October 7, at the Regional Office of The Bureau of Indian Affairs, where they will protest their grievances to the Bureau and hopefully place a list of grievances in the hands of the head of the Regional Office herself.
As Founder of Stop Tribal Genocide and a Co-Coordinator for the event, Emilio Reyes, Gabrielino, says that “preserving the existence of our Tribes is our top priority and we are uniting to fight against all issues in Indian Country.”
This event occurs during a time in America where Civil Rights violations have been taking place all over the country. These violations have caused quite a controversy and have started to unify the general public in their fight to preserve their rights. Standing Rock, North Dakota is a prime example of Native Americans, as well as people from all walks of life, banding together to stop a pipeline that can potentially harm a massive body of water that provides drinking water for thousands of people nationwide. The Native Rights Matter March is the West Coast version of that protest.
“We want to stand together peacefully and fight for our rights and our ways of life. We are still here and will let the world know that we speak as one voice; stand as one people; and will march as one to protect our civil liberties, our land, our water, and our livelihood,” says Yulu Ewis, a member of The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria (Coast Miwok), Co-Founder of Stop Tribal Genocide and a coordinator of this event.
