March for Our Lives

What Would Apess Do?
I’d like to encourage people to wear their What Would Apess Do? t-shirts to the March For Our Lives gatherings in your communities on Saturday March 24. Send me a photo of you wearing your t-shirt via FB and we will add it to the Image Gallery here. Spark a conversation and let people know that Native Lives Matter. No doubt guns were a part of life for Native communities in Apess’s time, but given his commitments to peaceful resistance, Apess surely would have understood how the presence of weapons of war in our communities only escalate opportunities for violence and oppression. I dare say Apess would have supported the children of Marjory Stoneman Douglass who are, like the Son of the Forest, serving as grass roots community activists taking on giant forces in the name of peace.
WWAD?
