Boycott the Poarch Creek Pow Wow Nov 23-24

    1. Petition by

      Hickory Ground

The Poarch Band of Creek Indians excavated 57 Mvskoke human remains from the Hickory Ground ceremonial ground and refused to reinter the ancestors in place so they could build a casino resort in Wetumpka, Alabama. Indian Country needs to send a message that our culture is more important than financial gain. To accept money from the Poarch Band at the Pow Wow is to participate in the desecration of the Native American graves and sacred places. Boycott the Poarch Band Pow Wow unless and until they agree to stop construction at the Ocevopfv ceremonial ground and preserve Hickory Ground as a sacred place for future generations. Mvto

      Because a injustice anywhere, is a injustice everywhere. If you don't deal with the wrongs done for any reason, they become larger, and will consume the rights of everyone.
