GWICH’IN GATHERING IN ARCTIC VILLAGE, ALASKA

Robby Romero stands in solidarity with the Gwich’in People at the Biennial Gwich’in Gathering in Vashraii K’oo (Arctic Village, Alaska) July 25-29, 2016.

Robby-RomeroSince 1988, the people of the Gwich’in Nation have spoken with a unified voice to protect the Sacred Place Where Life Begins Izhik Gwat’san Gwandaii Goodlit the birthplace and nursery grounds of the Porcupine Caribou Herd, the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil exploration and development.

In this era of record global warming and climate change, this year is an urgent time in the fight for permanent protection of the sacred birthplace of the caribou in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. We will celebrate and we give thanks to President Obama for sending the first-ever proposed Arctic Refuge Wilderness recommendation to Congress.

All Nations and friends of the Gwich’in are welcome.  This will be a time to meet new people and visit with friends and relatives, enjoy traditional foods, music, dance, and games, and keep the Sacred Fire Burning.

COP21 PARIS AGREEMENT BETTER LATE THAN NEVER… REALLY?

THE PARIS AGREEMENT

Logo_COP_21_Paris_2015The name COP21 speaks for itself. Twenty-one years of negotiation and the pursuit of profit at the expense of the environment and future generations is indeed historic. Especially when the agreement includes false solutions to the climate crises and violates the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Mother Earth and all our relations.

“What we do now in this moment or fail to, will be humanity’s defining legacy”  – Robby Romero
