GREEN PEACE

PROTECTING SALISH COAST TERRITORY

June 13, 2015 – NCS Youth Ambassador Ta’Kaiya Blaney joins Green Peace to send a message that people — not oil — belong on the beaches.

The event is taking place on the unceded Coast Salish Territory of the Xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.

As if this beautiful coast wasn’t facing enough threats, Shell is right now moving its Arctic fleet into position to begin drilling for oil in Alaska’s ice-covered waters — oil they want to eventually ship in super-tankers South along the coast.

 Join the movement to urge world leaders to sign a universal agreement that seriously reduces the Global Warming pollution that causes Climate Change.

FREE YOUR MIND

DO YOU KNOW A NATIVE AMERICAN

21 years ago, as part of MTV’s “Free Your Mind” campaign, Robby Romero created several stereotype-breaking public service announcements to help dispel myths and misconceptions about Native Peoples in pop culture. On January 16, 1994, “Free Your Mind” won the industry’s prestigious CableACE Award. The Native American PSA’s shined the light on stereotypes and derogatory names perpetrated in sports and pop cultural against Native Peoples. Today the campaign continues…
