What is Land Back?

“Land Back means a lot of different things. But I would say first and foremost, Land Back is very much the literal reclamation of land. And it’s the reclamation of everything stolen from us when we were forcibly removed from the lands.”

– Krystal Two Bulls, Director of NDN Collective’s Land Back Campaign
