Indigenous Action (IA/originally Indigenous Action Media) was founded on August 25th, 2001 to provide strategic communications and direct action support for Indigenous community’s sacred lands defense. We are a radical volunteer crew of anti-colonial & anti-capitalist Indigenous media makers & agitators that work together on a project by project basis for liberation for Mother Earth and all her beings. Over the years we’ve organized hundreds of actions, marches, banner drops, workshops, conferences, benefits, and much more.
IA also offers communications strategy & direct action consultation and support. We do this through Taala Hooghan Infoshop, direct support, workshops, web and graphic design services, documentaries and youth empowerment projects such as Outta Your Backpack Media.
