Apache Stronghold is marking the one-year anniversary of their occupation of sacred Oak Flat on Feb. 26-27. Join a short walk (under 5 miles, at a gentle pace) in Seattle to show your support on Sat. Feb. 27, 2016.
Why is this important to Seattlites?
Because we believe in religious freedom. Oak Flat is a sacred Apache site. If you believe religious freedom in America is not just meant for Christians, join us.
Because we honor our indigenous neighbors. Our city is named for Chief Seattle, show your respect by walking to protect the rights of all indigenous people fighting to save Mother Earth.
Because we care about the environment. A lot of people come to the Pacific Northwest because of its natural beauty. Saving Oak Flat is not just about saving one parcel of land, it’s about taking a stand to protect the beauty and balance of nature for future generations.
Details of the walk to follow, stay tuned.
