Vegas (4th grade) is a proud High Honor Roll member in his school district, and he attended today’s Idle No More round dance at the Missoula mall. He decided that he was going to bring a sign that was supportive of the Violence Against Women Act - and he came up with this message all by himself. Thank you to his mother for raising such an amazing young man, and for sharing this story/photo with us.

On Monday November 12, 2012, Save Wiyabi Project hosted Native people from all Nations to participate in a film for Eve Ensler’s, “One Billion Rising” campaign/movement. The event took place at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. The film is for V-Day, which takes place on February 14, 2013.
1 in 3 women will be raped, beaten, or murdered in her lifetime. That’s one billion women. Native American women face rates of violence higher than any other ethnic group in the United States. We are part of the one billion, and we are rising. 
For more amazing photos from the day’s event, please check them out on our Facebook page! [https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.405828506152779.85671.282026881866276&type=1]

The United Nations Declaration on Rights of Indigenous People. 
Although not official international law, it carries moral and political force. It is a statement and agreement recognizing and empowering Indigenous people. It is also a commitment from the state, to address concerns specific to Indigenous people. Out of 158 countries, the United States was dead last to sign and refused to until 2010; President Obama adopted the Declaration at the White House Tribal Nations Conference. 
Today, the U.S. is not living up to even the bare minimum requirements of the U.N. Declaration.
