As representatives of Northwest faith communities, we affirm the sovereignty of Native peoples and commit to working together in the ongoing struggle to overturn injustices. We further commit to addressing the impact of continued unjust actions and misunderstandings that undermine sovereignty, to uphold the rights of tribal communities, and to stand together to foster peace and justice for all.
- to support Native efforts to protect their inherent rights and treaty rights;
- to encourage faith communities to deepen relationships with Native peoples;
- to advocate for Native peoples as requested;
- to work for a shared future that fully acknowledges and addresses past wrongs.
Interfaith Network for Indigenous Communities ad hoc planning group, currently with participants from United Methodist, Lutheran, Episcopal, American Baptist, United Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, Buddhist, and Catholic faith communities.
