Native Rights MI is a collective formed as part of the Michigan Coalition Against Racism in Sports and Media. We work to educate and promote positive and healthy understandings of Native-American people. Along with this, we mainly target school race-based mascots and names in Michigan that are harmful to Native children and communities, promoting racism and stereotyping of multiple ethnic groups of Indigenous people. We work to share information about the challenges and positive impacts Indigenous people face that are invisibilized. 

We are currently working to remove the name "Redsk*ns" from schools. This includes putting up educational billboards like the photo shown, and organizing nonviolent and prayerful demonstrations to ask for acknowledgment of our civil rights as the First People. Your donations helps us to do this, making a stand for Native children and our communities as we work to heal from trauma caused by the violence to our people.

Miigwetch again. Funds have been raised to pay through the middle of November, which is Native American Heritage Month!

The space we were renting has been contracted out to another customer, so our billboard will be moved to another location able to be viewed by those westbound on I-94.

Miigwetch to all who support our plight to protect our children and Indigenous communities from this form of racism in schools.

Miigwetch for your help! We have received enough donations to keep up the billboard through October 10.

To keep it up until November 10, we need an additional $550. That is Native American Heritage Month, and a great goal! Please continue to share our crowd funding, and miigwetch for your shares and contributions.
