Equity Statement

The American Indian Heritage Day in Texas started with the simple words of change. "It is inappropriate for American Indian children to celebrate a day honoring a person for discovering a nation of people." Peggy & Larry Larney - Founder

Our Equity is the grass root movement to develop a voice by creating a State Law in the State of Texas called "American Indian Heritage Day" which we celebrate on the last Friday in September. Our platform honors our ancestors from Genocide to be survivors to bring awareness, address the crisis from historical trauma, and correct history that American Indians have been erased from history. Our Cultural Preservation / Equity Lens crosses education, art, social awareness, land acknowledgment, land protectors, water protectors, and platforms to rewrite the history of truth.
