So as promised, this is the first of a monthly posting and donation for a different group each month.
My first donation is going to the Winnemum Wintu. They are a Native American tribe who were delisted by the federal government in order for the Shasta Dam to be built, flooding their ancestral land. Because they were delisted, they have had to fight incredibly hard to have their traditional ceremonies and way of life be acknowledged, respected, and protected. On top of that, delisting means that they do not have access to federal funds set aside for Native People, so not only do they have to fight to stop the further destruction of their traditional ways and livelihood, they do not have access to the funds that are supposed to be about righting some of the wrongs of the past.
i have worked over the years to support these incredible people in various ways. Please join me in supporting the Winnemem Wintu this month. And remember if you do choose to support, please post to my blog and let me know–ANY amount is awesome!!!
Thanks and Love,
