From the indigenous point of view, there are only two types of land: the sacred and the desecrated. As indigenous nations defy Canada and the US over the Tar Sands and Powder River strip-mines, the notion of homeland security takes on new meaning. If security is the right to a clean environment and healthy way of life, then the nations whose homelands are under attack by Wall Street, Ottawa and the White House are exercising their rights under international law to defend themselves.

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage.
