Indian Country 52 #17 – Cowboys and Indians
“Cowboys and Indians are fighting on the same side this week in the nation’s capital.
The Cowboy and Indian Alliance is marching on the Capitol in Washington for Earth Day today through April 27 to protest the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline. The group is setting up a tipi camp outside the White House for the five-day duration of the protests.
The protest camp will formally close on April 27, with the message of “reject the Keystone XL.” Saturday, April 26 has been designated as “a day of action.” On that date everyone present will be asked to put his or her thumbprint mark on a tipi.”
