We're planting "Seeds of Resistance" to help grassroots communities fighting Big Oil and working to protect our land, water and climate.
Your donation will now go directly to support local landowners and grassroots groups fighting Keystone XL, and to spread the "Seeds of Resistance" to other communities across the country who are battling risky fossil fuel projects.
(Sign up to join us on May 21st for the fourth-annual planting of sacred Ponca corn on the Tanderup farm in Neligh, NE.)
The Cowboy and Indian Alliance that formed to defeat Keystone XL — including Ponca Nation member and Bold Oklahoma coordinator Mekasi Horinek Camp, Nebraska farmer Art Tanderup, and Bold Nebraska's Jane Kleeb — traveled to Virginia and West Virginia in 2016 to plant and harvest "Seeds of Resistance" on land that lies in the paths of the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley fracked gas pipelines.
The first "Seeds of Resistance" were planted as medicine on the Keystone XL pipeline route in 2014 by the Cowboy and Indian Alliance. The sacred Ponca corn was returned to the tribe's ancestral homeland in Nebraska for the first time in 137 years, when the tribe was forcibly removed from Nebraska.
Since their first planting in Nebraska as a strategy of blocking the Keystone XL pipeline and building a Cowboy and Indian Alliance, the "Seeds of Resistance" have spread across the world, to Ecuador, Minnesota, Wisconsin and other communities standing up to Big Corporations.
Donate to help plant the "Seeds of Resistance" and show the power of Pipeline Fighters.
