Title

Undermining the Sacred with a Settler Mentality

Description

This poster intends to portray the complete disregard for Indigenous Religion and sacred landscapes. Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and a Supreme Court majority expressed in Lyng through a series of quotes pulled directly from the case. We want people to think about the hypocrisy of an outsider deciding the fate of a Religious Landmark when monetary and racist motives are present.

Abstract

Lyng v. Northwest allowed for the blatant destruction of an integral sacred site for the Yurok, Tolowa, Karuk, and
Hupa Peoples. The proposed Gasquet-Orleans road project threatened an area of forest that, since the beginning of time, local tribes have conducted special ceremonies, rights, and journeys within.
