About Sacred Sites Protection

Stand with Mauna Kea

Sacred Sites Protection and Rights of Indigenous Tribes (SSPRIT) is an organization of Indigenous & Earth Peoples dedicated to upholding traditional Native American cultural & spiritual freedom.  This includes the protection of Sacred Sites, the right to practice traditional ceremonies and respect for traditional cultural customs of Native Americans.

We affirm that All Life Is Sacred

We support the endeavors of all Indigenous Peoples to maintain their sovereignty as individual Clans, Bands, Tribes and Nations.  We give this support through information, education and resolutions of support.

We petition governments and institutions with grievances to the violation of the human & civil rights of Indigenous People and desecration of Native American Sacred Sites. We speak out against legislation that violates the sovereign rights of Indigenous Peoples.

We educate members of the community through presentations, discussions, and educational workshops to eliminate discrimination against Indigenous Peoples.  Our goal is to inform the public of the importance in preserving & protecting Native American sacred sites and the importance to upholding the civil & human rights of all Indigenous Peoples.

We promote respect for Indigenous Peoples through community involvement; this includes attending & participating in community events, networking with local businesses and providing educational support for educators, staff, and students attending local schools.

We take action against discrimination by inviting the public to our meetings, gatherings and ceremonies; providing the spiritual culture of First Nations Peoples first hand.  We offer insight into the similarities of Native American spirituality and other religions & faiths.

We demonstrate Native American Cultural relevancy in contemporary society, speaking throughout the state about the disrespect & desecration of Native American Sacred Sites and presenting information regarding Native American cultural appropriation.
