Justice for the Lakota People

Petition the Pope: Return Church Lands to Indigenous Hands

From the Doctrine of Discovery in the 15th century through the boarding and residential school era spanning the 19th and 20th centuries, colonialism and genocide perpetrated by the Catholic Church has wiped out millions of Indigenous People across the globe. Now headed by its most progressive pope, the Church should make reparations. Please read the petition below, and then add your name to Lakota Law’s call for Pope Francis to return sacred lands back to Indigenous hands.


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
