Alexis Krauss Releases “Our Land” To Protest Trump’s Assault On National Parks
Posted by rpm
Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells releases a new original song by Alexis Krauss and the Our Land Collective entitled Our Land. The song was recorded in response to President Trump’s assault on our National Monuments and Parks.
All proceeds from the sale of the song and released merchandise (via partners Bandcamp and Revolutions Per Minute) will directly fund Utah Diné Bikéyah’s legal effort to reinstate protection for the entire Bears Ears National Monument. Utah Diné Bikéyah is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to preserve the culturally significant ancestral lands of indigenous communities.
“Inspired by my love of wild spaces and in response to President Trump’s assault on our national monuments, I wrote ‘Our Land’ as a protest song. The song led to a collaborative recording session and quickly developed into a film project, in partnership with professional photographer/producer Chris Vultaggio. Chris and I set out for Utah in efforts to expand the project and tell the story of Bears Ears and its people. We’ve joined this cause to support those on the front lines of this fight and to amplify the millions of dissenting voices that are already shouting to be heard.” -Alexis Krauss
