About U.U.W.S

Mission Statement


As members and supporters of United Urban Warrior society... the issues we face and deal with are issues of Environment, Governance, Land and Treaties, Oppression & Genocide... Not only must we be Native rights activists we also must be social justice advocates... Missing and Murdered Women, Police Brutality, KXL Pipeline, Fracking, Racism and Child Welfare are just some of the issues we deal with daily... Our battle field is that of concrete and prairies.


Our actions and tactics as activist's not only call for us to be creative but we must always be prepared to seize the moment... Our oppressor's and opposition is the police, courts, and all levels of Government & in some case our own tribal leadership... We're urban warriors in an urban war zone... It's their terrain, but our land... And the fight for our rights as Native people still continues...


U.U.W.S. is about Protecting & Defending First Nations Rights, Our culture, sacred ceremony’s, our land and spirituality. Promoting! Unity & Solidarity, amongst our people. We hope you stay, get involved & live our motto "We Walk Our Talk" There comes a time when carrying a sign or a flag won't cut it, we may have to take it to another level or step aside. Civil disobedience may be necessary. We must be willing to put our bodies and freedom on the line. We must fight for rights, fight for our children and fight for mother earth in order for us all to survive! That's when we'll see the real warriors on the front lines…


We are a privately held, privately funded, entirely volunteer, non-profit Native American community organization. Our purpose is social services to our people and social change for our nation. Donations are NOT tax-deductible. We will not solicit unless it is necessary to do so. Our blanket is out for anyone who would like to help support our projects.


Each chapter works on Local native issues in their areas with the support of all the other chapters...Find a chapter near you and join them. Stand up and be heard....Stand up and fight with us.
