The LaPointe family is once again journeying to the United Nations’ Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues to humbly contribute in small, and profound ways to the collective voice of indigenous peoples as delegates of the American Indian Movement-West. This year’s session is timely as it is themed, “Indigenous Peoples’ Collective Rights to Lands, Territories, and Resources”, April 16-27, 2018.
The family is holding a fundraiser to support the trip on Wednesday, April 4, from 6-9 p.m. at All My Relations Gallery, 1414 East Franklin Ave., Minneapolis. It will be an evening of insights from indigenous rights defenders, performances by indigenous artists, and excellent food from an indigenous chef.
Suggested donation is $25, but no one will be turned away. If you would like to support the family’s trip to the United Nations but can’t make it that evening, go their Go Fund Me Page.
