WYOGIVES is 
Today!

WyoGives - an initiative of the Wyoming Nonprofit Network – is designed to bring the state together as one community to raise money and awareness for Wyoming’s nonprofits.

 

This 24-hour day of online giving takes place on July 14, 2021.

Wyoming Wilderness Association would like to recognize that public wildlands are Native lands, and that more than twenty indigeneous tribes are connected to Wyoming including, the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ (Lakota, Dakota and Nakota bands), Hinono’ei (Arapaho), Sáhniš (Arikara), Panati (Bannock), Niitsitapi (Blackfeet), Tsistsistas (Cheyenne), Apsaalooké (Crow), A'aninin (Gros Ventre), [Gáuigú (Kiowa), Nimi'ipuu (Nez Perce), Tukudeka (Sheep Eater), Newe (Shoshone) and Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute). These tribes were forcibly and often violently removed from the areas where Wyoming’s public wildlands and communities now exist. 


WWA would lastly like to admit that this land acknowledgement, as well as our commitment to engaging Native peoples in our work is far from perfect. We welcome and encourage all feedback and suggestions.
