On February 17, I am joining tens of thousands of people on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., along with tens of thousands more in cities and towns across the nation, in what will be the largest climate action in US history.

The Piscataway Tribe has graciously extended a welcome to our First Nation guests from British Columbia, Canada, and to ALL of us. Thank you Chief Billy Tayac and thank you everyone who is descending on Washington, DC, from around the nation for the Forward on Climate Rally!

 

Welcoming the Forward on Climate Rally


Greetings Chief Abraham, Chief Flurer, Chief Thomas, and the Yinka Dene Alliance,

On behalf of the Piscataway Indian Nation, I welcome you, all indigenous representatives, and all allies to our ancestral homeland on the Potomac River, a place now known as Washington, D.C. 

We are grateful for your steadfast courage and perseverance to dismantle this terrible assault on our Mother Earth – the Keystone XL Pipeline.  We join you in calling upon President Obama to reject Tar Sands oil and to immediately desist from any further engagement with the Pipeline.

Our ancestors entrusted us with the care of all our relations, keeping the balance of life so that the seventh generation can know this living Earth.  These are our Original Instructions. Not man's law, but Creator's Law.

May Mother Earth Endure Her Suffering,

 

Chief Billy Redwing Tayac
