Great Plains Action Society

Great Plains Action Society addresses the trauma that Indigenous Peoples and the Earth face as we work to prevent further colonial-capitalist violence through mutual aid, culture & tradition, direct action, education, and political engagement throughout Iowa and Nebraska. We are 100% Indigenous-led and were founded out of concern for the land and future generations due to the catastrophic effects of the climate emergency, environmental degradation, the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives crisis, and erasure/misrepresentation. Our name is indicative of an Indigenous community tradition wherein small groups, called societies, work together on daily tasks to solve problems as they arise.
