MAPPING AGAINST MAN CAMPS
SBI is strongly committed to upholding the rights of tribal nations and Indigenous peoples to refuse exploitation of their territories and bodies, and to have that refusal be honored. In keeping with those values, SBI stands alongside tribal nations and allied rural communities in opposing the KXL pipeline, and other extractive industries that threaten to bring environmental and social devastation to Indigenous peoples. SBI has signed the International Treaty to Protect the Sacred, and supports grassroots research and data collection that upholds the commitments in the treaty. As part of that support, this project includes sustained work on the impacts man camps may have on Indigenous people, particularly increases in sexual violence, and deaths and disappearances of women and children.
