We are heartbroken by the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Department officers. As a Native-led, systems change organization focused on dismantling power structures rooted in racism and colonial violence, we stand with the #BlackLivesMatter movement and George Floyd’s family. 

To our Indigenous relatives: hold George Floyd and his family in your prayers. Say his name. Honor his life and memory. Demand justice. 

The United States of America was built on stolen land and stolen labor. We stand in solidarity with our Black relatives as we dream of a new future that’s grounded in both Indigenous values and Black liberation.
