This is crucial--and not just to build the movement! It's also just, frankly, the RIGHT thing to do.

If you are like me, and your whole family and community is not native to this land, THIS IS NOT OUR LAND! We should be on our knees, BEGGING for forgiveness and for an opportunity to prove we deserve to stay.

And we might not GET that opportunity. We likely just flat-out don't deserve it.

But until then, we at least have a debt to pay. We should fight as hard as possible to preserve this land and this water. At the very, very, VERY least, we should be good stewards of this land until such a time as we CAN give it back!
