International Indigenous Youth Council
The International Indigenous Youth Council protects land, water, and treaty rights. The Council was formed at, and in response to, the call of Youth from the Sacred Stone Camp resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline. They are Youth from all nations, tribes, and races. They know that everyone has their own struggle to protect their land, water, and people. They work towards the end of environmental racism. They rise as leaders through non-violent direct action and advancing their voices in decisions made about the future of Indian Country. They follow in the tradition of their elders and the American Indian Movement in coming together nationally and internationally to form a solidarity movement that builds people power.
