Organized by a coalition of Indigenous Peoples, ranchers, and farmers, the week-long Reject and Protect gathering in Washington, DC, in April 2014, conveyed firm opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline to President Obama. Idle No More developed videos, memes, and other web content under the slogan “Stand Our Sacred Ground” that communicated the stories of those involved to broader concerned citizens and grassroots Indigenous Peoples.

Many Idle No More chapters, including Idle No More Denver Colorado, Idle No More SF Bay, Idle No More Twin Cities, Idle No More Washington, Idle No More Gulf Coast, and Idle No More Wisconsin, have been fundamental in the fight against the Keystone XL pipeline, ensuring that Indigenous Peoples’ voices are heard in strong opposition to this environmentally devastating development project that would cross through tribal land.
