Help protect Native American ceremonial stone landscapes!

Help Protect Ceremonial Stones!


Thank you to everyone who donated to Phase I of the Narragansett Indian Tribal Historic Preservation Office legal defense of the ceremonial stone landscape in Sandisfield. The Sandisfield land has a long Native American history of occupation. Native people lived alongside and intermarried with colonists in order to preserve the landscape there. These latest efforts of the Narragansett Indian Tribe, funded by likeminded people from a variety of cultures, join a centuries-long line of positive actions to defend the prayers in stone.

Now the battle must be fought in court at the national level due to FERC’s involvement, but fortunately, the federally-recognized Narragansett Indian Tribe is a Nation that has a government-to-government relationship with the United States at this level. They are willing to take on what will be an expensive, but wide-reaching legal battle, and need our help to fund it.

Together we can make a stand in Sandisfield, protecting the ceremonial stone landscape there, and by extension across the country where it is threatened by other pipelines and fossil-fuel infrastructure. Please help us enact phase II of the legal defense. For more info contact:
