Washington DC – Northern Plains Tribal leaders and land owners representing the Cowboy and Indian Alliance joined in cross-border solidarity yesterday with their First Nations counterparts on the steps of the Canadian embassy. Their aim was to send a clear message to the Canadian and US governments to Honor the Treaties. Representatives of the Dakota, Lakota, Nakota, Ponca, Ojibway, and Cree Nations stood alongside ranchers and farmers to hold up huge letters spelling out “Honor The Treaties” and blown-up images of Treaty 8, Treaty 6, and the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868, which cover Indigenous people’s lands affected by the controversial Canadian tar sands and the Keystone XL pipeline.

This past October 2013, I was walking with many of my family, friends who were mostly children on a historic walk to create awareness about an oil spill by Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (CNRL). The spill started in May 2013 near Cold Lake, Alberta within Treaties 6 and 8 territories. To this day, CNRL still has no idea how to stop it.
