our ask

We need your financial support to create a historic convergence of grassroots indigenous activists, artists and thought leaders from multiple tribal nations on occupied Turtle Island (United States) to Ireland this summer. 

our plan

Our main sites of visit will be communities on the frontlines of resisting extractivism – particularly mining, and protecting our air, land and water in Co. Leitrim, the Sperrins, Co. Tyrone and Inishowen, Co. Donegal. We will be undertaking a the ceremonial water walk along the River Foyle and many moments of celebration, exchange and theatre.

We are living through an earth moment of crises – where many ecosystems are on the brink of collapse, with a volatile climate causing extreme weather, far-right extremism on the rise along with social inequality and injustice caused by obscene power imbalances. 

In our search for a way through and the path to a life-sustaining society we need to learn from those who despite it all have retained their connection to land and life and protected their sense of balance with the natural world. 


our why

Can we rediscover a more indigenous way of relating to the world around us? Can we unlearn our disconnect and learn to connect anew? 

Thank you for your support and solidarity

Who we are: we are a collective of community groups and activists involved in environmental and social justice work on the island of Ireland.
