Indigenous Environmental Network

After more than 10 years of organizing we have finally defeated an oil giant, Keystone XL is dead! We are dancing in our hearts because of this victory! 

From Dene territories in Northern Alberta to Indigenous lands along the Gulf of Mexico, we stood hand-in-hand to protect the next seven generations of life, the water and our communities from this dirty tar sands pipeline. And that struggle is vindicated. 

This is not the end — but merely the beginning of further victories. There are still frontline Indigenous water protectors like Oscar High Elk who face charges for standing against the Keystone XL pipeline
