Rise with Standing Rock - Native Nations March on Lansing

Date: 
Fri, Mar 10, 2017 - 2:00pm to 7:00pm

City:

Anee (Hello) Relatives,

We invite you to answer the call of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to rise in defense of Native people's right to protect their land and water: Mni Wiconi.

Natives and allies have been asked to organize locally. So, we've decided to take ourselves right to the footsteps of the State Capitol Building in Lansing, Michigan.

Join us for an evening of solidarity, education, ceremony, and activism followed by a community feast at the Nokomis Learning Center.

Michigan State Capitol
