Today marks the official launch to our new OBEY Awareness campaign, Honor the Treaties. Honor the Treaties is an organization dedicated to amplifying the voices of indigenous communities through art and advocacy. We do that by funding collaborations between Native artists and Native advocacy groups so that their messages can reach a wider audience. Every shirt sold through this campaign helps support a Native artist and their work with a partner organization. All funding is channeled through The Lakota People's Law Project (501c3).

Indigenous communities are fighting their most important battles in recent history—battles to protect the integrity of their land and water and traditions. In 1980, after the longest running court case in U.S. history, the Supreme Court ruled that the Black Hills (in what is now South Dakota) were illegally taken from the Sioux Nation. The court awarded only 106 million dollars as payment. The Sioux refused the money with the rallying cry, "The Black Hills are Not for Sale!" All across Indian country, this story repeats itself: battles over land, water, hunting and fishing rights, health care, education, and religious freedoms continue TODAY. From Idle No More's growing movement in Canada to the road blockades attempting to stop the KXL pipeline from crossing tribal lands, the treaty struggles are very much alive.

We urge you to please read more about Honor the Treaties at www.honorthetreaties.org
