Native Nations Rise Protest Demands Respect for Sovereignty, Culture and the Environment

Posted March 15, 2017

MP3 Excerpt of a speech by JoDe Goudy, chairman of the Yakama Nation in Washington State, at the Native Nations Rise march and rally in Washington, D.C., recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus

On March 10, thousands of indigenous people from across the U.S. gathered in Washington, D.C. for the Native Nations Rise march and rally. The action was preceded by two days of prayer and ceremony on the National Mall. The march route went past the Trump International Hotel, where some participants had erected a tipi and a group of women did a circle dance. The event began as rain turned to snow and then back to rain, which was described as "Mother Earth doing exactly what she's supposed to be doing" by a representative of the Piscataway Nation who welcomed everyone to her homeland.

The days of protest and prayer were organized by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which continues to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline, as well as the Indigenous Environmental Network and the Native Organizers Alliance. Participants carried banners opposing the Dakota Access pipeline, as well as signs calling for native consent, not just consultation, for invasive projects on their lands. Following an executive order from Donald Trump, the Dakota Access pipeline is now proceeding to completion under the Missouri River, but the tribe is still engaged in court to fight it.

One of the speakers at a rally across from the White House was JoDe Goudy, chairman of the Yakama Nation in Washington state. He read from a proclamation signed by the Yakima and the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which opposes what it calls the Doctrine of Christian Discovery, that justifies the invasion and exploitation of native lands and peoples.
