The longest walk
In 1978 11 bills were introduced in the United States Congress that if passed would have harmed American Indian sovereign rights, with the worst of the bills calling for the abrogation of all Indian Treaties. This inspired some people such as Dennis Banks and Bill Wahpepah to come up with a way of raising awareness about these bills and building support for Inidan Treaty rights. They came up with an idea for a Walk across the land from Alcatraz to Washington D.C. So on February 11th, 1978 The Longest Walk began with a Ceremony on Alcatraz where a Sacred Pipe was filled, and that Pipe was carried across the land, with staffs and other sacred items. What started as a response to anti-Indian legislation soon became an affirmation of Indigenous Sovereignty. The Longest Walk was a spiritual walk, and the prayers were felt and heard by many Indigenous Peoples, as well as other Peoples from the four directions. The same cannot be said by those in Washington DC. Although all but one of the bills did not pass, the attitude in Washington toward finding new and creative ways to diminish Indian sovereignty did not end. (continued on Pt 2)

“We’re too busy trying to protect the idea of a Native American or an Indian – but we’re not Indians and we’re not Native Americans.
We’re older than both concepts.
We’re the people.
We’re the human beings.”
„Every time somebody is in danger, we need to walk in that direction,” said Dennis Banks of the
Red Lake Band of Anishinaabe people.
“We can’t stop walking, because there’s pain in every direction.”
Banks organized the first Longest Walk in 1978.

Indigenous Peoples First time to UN in Geneva by Oren Lyons
In this video Chief Oren Lyons of the Onondaga Nation, tells about the first time indigenous leaders were
accepted at the UN in 1977, where they brought forward the four issues of greatest importance to the 20
million indians they were respresenting; those of nationhood, land rights, genocide and self-determination.
Then he tells about their long encounter to get recognition of the rights of indigenous peoples and how
they came to the First Decade of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
It has been a long way for indigenous peoples to have their rights recognized internationally.
As early as in 1923 Haudenosaunee chief Deskaheh (Canada/USA) travelled to Geneva to the League
of Nations (predecessor of the United Nations) to claim the rights of his people; the right to live under their
own justice systems, on their ancestral lands and practising their own religion. However,
he was denied access.
It was not until 1977 that the doors to the United Nations finally opened to representatives of
The international NGO convention on Discrimination against the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas gave
them access to the UN building in Geneva.
Since then, indigenous peoples have actively been working towards the international recognition of their
rights and have created an ever-growing international movement of indigenous peoples.
