Preserve Sacred Places Now

Native Americans have held ceremonies, made spiritual journeys, and buried their relatives according to time-honored customs and traditions on sacred lands. These places are forever tied to our cultural identity and everyday life. And yet many of these hallowed grounds are once again being threatened.

Mining, reservoir projects, oil and gas development, and even recreational parks are causing tribal, sacred places to become vulnerable. For example, a mine proposed by Cortez Joint Venture, Ltd., would destroy Mt. Tenabo, a precious cultural site of the Western Shoshone.

You have to put a stop to this.

Donate generously to the Native American Rights Fund now, and your gift will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, by the Tzo’-Nah Foundation who has established a Matching Gift Challenge Fund for the protection of sacred Native places.. $25 becomes $50; $100 becomes $200; and so on.

Your gift will help us continue to fight for these sacred places, and for rights of Native Americans.

We only have until August 9th, so donate today!
