Supporting Indigenous Leaders

On Jan. 18, the Lakota People's Law Project joined thousands of Indigenous leaders and allies from around the world to march for Indigenous rights. What followed captured the attention of millions. Omaha elder Nathan Phillips interceded between two aggressive groups with a ceremonial drum and a sacred song, successfully defusing a potentially violent situation. When the media spin cycle kicked in, we remained at Nathan's side through an onslaught of appointments and attacks to provide valuable legal advice and outreach support. We continue to stand with Nathan Phillips and his call for "peace with justice."
