Our Contributors


Since 2009, settlers have been contributing to the Dakota land recovery project, first through the parent nonprofit Oyate Nipi Kte and now through the nonprofit Makoce Ikikcupi. As individuals wrestled with their roles as beneficiaries of land theft and genocide, they sought to contribute to a project that would have a tangible benefit to Dakota survivors of injustice. Realizing that a verbal expression of remorse or guilt did nothing to address the reality of historic and ongoing injustices, they exhibited a desire to take positive action to help repair the most fundamental harm of settler-colonialism–Indigenous disconnection from the land. Thus, each and every donation demonstrates a personal commitment to reparative justice.
