On January 23rd through 25th 2013 we co-hosted the Gathering to Protect the Sacred from the Tar Sands and Keystone XL Pipeline. Here are two remarkable videos.
The first video is the Grand Council Signing Ceremony that took place on Friday, January 25th with assembled Elected Leadership, Treaty Council Members, Traditional Leaders, Societies, and their Allies signing the International Treaty to Protect the Sacred from Tar Sands Projects. The video features Tantoo Cardinal, Chief Rueben George, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Faith Spotted Eagle, Chief Phil Lane Jr., and others.
The second video is an overview and background on how the Gathering and this new International Treaty to Protect the Sacred from Tar Sands Projects came into form as told by Faith Spotted Eagle, Brave Heart Society member and First Native American woman to sign such a treaty! This video was recorded and produced by Ashley Young from the Feather Project:
