Justice for the Lakota People

Tell Secretary Haaland: Change Offensive Place Names Across Turtle Island

Tell U.S. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland and the Advisory Committee on Reconciliation in Place Names to work with the U.S. Board on Geographic Names to replace every offensively titled place on Lakota Law’s Geographic Names Hall of Shame. You can customize your message and also recommend any other offensive place names of which you're aware!

Ongoing Campaigns

Dedicated to reversing the slow genocide of the Lakota People and destruction of their culture, the Lakota People’s Law Project partners with Native communities to protect sacred lands, safeguard human rights, promote sustainability, reunite indigenous families, and much more.

Winning Lakota Justice

We're helping to safeguard sacred lands and water, end the epidemic of children being removed from their families and traditions, and amplify Native voices.
