April at the RSIC

April means spring and maybe, more showers are on the way.  In Indian Country, the month brings our celebration of Earth Day. The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement.

The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.

Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

For Native Americans Water is Life resonates now more than ever.  Please join the RSIC for its special Earth Day Celebration and check out all the April activities below.
