The Story

In a show of solidarity and support for the Yezidi people of Iraq who were brutally singled out for genocide by ISIS, a prominent Amerindian rights activists plans to travel to Iraq this Fall (2017) at the invitation of the Yezidis’ supreme spiritual leader, the Baba Sheikh, where he will meet with surviving Yezidi victims and document ISIS crimes against the Yezidi people in order to compile a historic case on behalf of the Yezidi People, against captured ISIS members for the crime of Genocide at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague - so that JUSTICE may finally prevail.  
Damon Corrie, Chief of the Eagle Clan Lokono-Arawaks Barbados Chapter of the United Confederation of Taíno People (UCTP), and Co-founder of the Caribbean Amerindian Development Organization (CADO) also Co-Founder and Chairman of the Defense Committee of the Indigenous Democracy Defence Organization (IDDO) - was recently appointed by His Holiness the Baba Sheikh as the Yezidi nation's official Ambassador-at-large to the world.
Damon will be in communication with Chase Iron Eyes, another prominent Native American Indian activist, attorney, politician, journalist, and member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. As founder of North America’s most popular indigenous news media website www.lastrealindians.com, Chase Iron Eyes (via LRI) will be exclusively sharing field reports and project updates on social media.
Damon Corrie and Chase Iron Eyes have appealed to all friends and supporters of the Yezidis and Amerinidians alike to help them to raise funds needed to undertake the dangerous return journey that Damon has agreed to take on.
We need to raise $2,500 to support the travel costs to send Damon Corrie on this sensitive and historic mission. 
Won’t you please consider making a contribution, however large or small, to help the Yezidis to survive with their ancient tribal wisdom traditions? Here is your opportunity to do so!
