NIWRC Statement on the Death of George Floyd



(LAME DEER, Mont., May 29, 2020)—The National Indigenous Women's Resource Center refuses to accept the death of our relative George Floyd at the hands of police as ‘normal’. As a Native-led organization, NIWRC stands firmly grounded against violence and oppression in all forms—police brutality included. We must work together to undo the systemic racism in our communities and demand change. No more stolen relatives.

We stand in solidarity with our Black relatives in calling for justice for George Floyd. Our deepest condolences for George’s family and friends. Please know we are with you, praying with you and grieving this tragic loss.

Relatives, join us in honoring George Floyd. Say his name. Protect our relatives. Demand justice for George and for future generations.
