Cowboy and Indian Alliance Camp

Washington, District of Columbia 20016, United States

Created By: Dr. Elizabeth Rule - The Guide To Indigenous Lands Project


In an act of solidarity between farmers, ranchers, and tribes, the Cowboy and Indian Alliance demonstration protested the Keystone XL pipeline and championed environmental protections, specifically focusing on the at-risk Ogallala Aquifer. On April 22, 2014, the Alliance kicked off its week-long demonstration by riding horseback along the National Mall, and raising teepees and erecting a camp in front of the US Capitol Building. Approximately 5,000 attendees participated in the activities.
