Support our brother Russell Means

Our brother and leader, Russell Means is involved in a tenacious fight against the cruelest of invader diseases -- cancer. As usual, however, Russell is putting up an exemplary resistance. He has been relying on our traditional medicines, and ceremonies, and has been treated by indigenous healers from the Lakota (Crow Dog), Dinéh (Morgan), and Anishinabe (Turtle Lodge). In addition, he is undergoing alternative treatments in Arizona. Visit his website www.republicoflakotah.com for updates.

These treatments are quite expensive, and our brother needs all of our help. If Russell has ever touched your life, has ever inspired or taught you anything, has ever made your proud to be Indian, or to be a human being, now is the time to repay him. Thank you.

Resistance to Columbus Day film showing

The Indigenous Training Resource Council &
The American Indian Movement of Colorado
Even The Rain (2010)
(También la Lluvia)
This recent feature film is set against the backdrop of the actual“Water Wars” fought against the privatization of Bolivia’s water supply by Bechtel Corporation in the year 2000. The script is anchored in the philosophies of 16th century Dominican priests, Bartolome de las Casas and Antonio Montesinos, the first opposition voices of conscience against the Columbus invasion and European empire in the Americas. With ample irony, EVEN THE RAIN (También la Lluvia) explores the effects of imperialism, still resonating some 500 years later, in the continuing struggle of indigenous peoples.
