Did you know that in the state of Colorado it was legal to kill native people until August 17, 2021.
In 1864, after years of growing tension between settlers & surrounding tribes, gov. john evans signed a proclamation legalizing the hunt & kill of native people.
In November of that same year US troops slaughtered hundreds of innocent Arapahoe & Cheyenne men, womxn & children in what is now known as the Sand Creek Massacre.
On Tuesday August 17, 2021 Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed an executive order undoing a 157 year old law that legalized killing and genocide of Indigenous people.
The IIYC Rocky Mountain chapter was able to witness this historic moment as our centuries-old genocide nears it’s end. We are the caretakers of this land.
As Jared Polis signs this proclamation we also ask that he stand with us in ending Colorado's relationship with the fracking industry as we know it and make the commitment to reinvest in renewable, clean energy! No more man camps, no more fracking wells and no more pipelines!

Just think of how many laws are still on the books in other cities and states...
