Support Our Work

Here’s Who We Are and What We Stand For: and Original Nations Advocates are an ongoing outgrowth of the work of the Indigenous Law Institute founded by Birgil Kills Straight (and Elder of the Oglala Lakota Nation) and Steven T. Newcomb (Shawnee, Lenape) in 1992. That was the year we began our global campaign to call upon Pope John Paull II to formally revoke the Papal Bull of May 4, 1493. For decades we have accumulated a massive amount of truly unique and thoroughly sourced research materials, as well as a formidable framework of analysis and argumentation on behalf of our nations and peoples. We are now proudly working in collaboration with the next generation of original nations advocates such as my daughter Shawna Bluestar Newcomb (Shawnee, Lenape). Your donation, large or small, will enable us to maintain our educational campaign and to advocate on behalf of Original Nations and Peoples by proactively opposing the Doctrine of Christian Discovery and Domination.
