In honor of the land and wildlife , let alone the indigenous people that were here and still live here … I think it would be cool to have a challenge the rest of the month (if not all the time). 
 

Find an indigenous reservation of some sort in your area that you can visit (museums , hiking trails , walking trails , tribal reservation areas) , learn about their culture and appreciate their land and wildlife. Donate if you’re able to even !

Dad , Big Brother and myself went to Nisqually today and soaked in the beautiful land and history markers (and wildlife markers) all over the trails for everyone to read and learn from.

Great idea! My city is doing a pretty good job of acknowledging treaties and lands with signs all over the city. We are slowly changing or translating names of roads and areas into Indigenous languages. We have Orange shirt day here too to acknowledge the victims and survivors of residential schools. But I’ve been meaning to do more research and find ways to support the Indigenous community. ^__^

I do not have a car, but there is a tribe near me I can tell you a little about that I have learned of since moving to this part of Washington state. Nearby is the Chinook tribe. Back in 2001 the federal government had actually recognized them as a tribe officially, but in 2002 that recognition was revoked and has not been given back to them since. To this day they are still fighting to get that recognition back. The Chinook Nation is actually a group of various indigenous peoples who speak the Chinookan language. There are actually a LOT of unrecognized tribes in the United States, and it's really a shame that they get ignored and denied the rights that the recognized tribes possess.

Official site (you can learn how to support them seeking recognition here): https://chinooknation.org/

You can contribute to them here via donations: https://chinooknation.org/contribute/

Wikipedia article about the Chinook people: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinookan_peoples

They also have very active social media accounts and keep people regularly posted about their journey.
