Justice for the Lakota People

Tell Congress: No Medals for Murder!

On Dec. 29, 1890, the 7th Cavalry of the United States massacred nearly 300 peaceful Lakota women, men, and children at Cankpe' Opi Wakpa, or Wounded Knee Creek. The U.S. government subsequently awarded the Medal of Honor to soldiers for participating in this heinous slaughter of innocent families. It's time to respect the slain and remove the stain. Tell your senators and House rep: Pass the Remove the Stain Act now! Rescind the 20 Medals of Honor granted to soldiers who participated in the Wounded Knee Massacre.

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

For over a decade, we’ve been standing strong with the Lakota to counteract treaty violations, protect sovereignty, and confront systemic racism. 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.
