On January 18, 2019, the Indigenous Peoples Movement led the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington, DC. The purpose of the march was to address indigenous issues on the global level, such as gun violence, mental health, women's rights, political representation, environmental protections, and international solidarity. March participants followed a route from the Department of the Interior, along Constitution Avenue, to the stairs at the Lincoln Memorial. In addition to song, dance, and prayer, a line up of notable speakers included Rep. Ruth Buffalo (D-ND 27), Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM), and Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS). Solidarity marches were held in more than ten cities across the United States and abroad.
