Owe Aku International Justice Project's Mission Statement
Owe Aku International Justice Project (Pine Ridge Reservation, SD) - works to bring back the beautiful Lakota way of life which includes humanity’s role in nature: we are a part of it, not outside of it, not having dominion over it. To achieve this Owe Aku works to stop mining that contaminates their water and land. Owe Aku has reestablished programs that utilize the wisdom of our ancestors in combatting the effects of intergenerational trauma caused by colonization and the intentional attempts for hundreds of years to destroy our culture.
