2016 World Series demonstration at Cleveland Baseball - Final games

The final games of the 2016 World Series starts tomorrow in Cleveland: Tuesday, November 1st and Wednesday, November 2nd. Join Cleveland American Indian Movement and the Native community down at the baseball stadium to help us wrap-up another season of protesting Cleveland Baseball's "Indians" team name and "Wahoo" logo. The world has been watching Cleveland intently during these last few weeks and we want to make a good showing for our final demonstrations.

Events for September 2016

This month Cleveland American Indian Movement is pleased to announce the reinterment of ancestors from the Engle-Eiden site in Lorain County. This private ceremony will see 46 ancestors laid to rest on their original land, where they will be protected and remain undisturbed. We thank all involved who have made this momentous occasion possible, and who have helped us fulfill our commitment to these ancestors.

Rios-Montt sentenced to 80 years for Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity

Forums:

The trial of General José Efrain Ríos-Montt in Guatemala has ended and he has been found guilty! This trial was historic for being the first time in which a head of state was tried by the judicial system of his own country (not an international tribunal) for genocide. This process, which began in 1999, is a milestone for indigenous people everywhere and a victory for the Ixil Maya who suffered torture, disappearances, displacement and mass-murder during his brief but brutal reign of terror.
