This limited edition commemorative shirt helps to fund PTM Foundation’s Indigenous Peoples Day 2021 fundraising campaign in support of Native Communities facing a water crisis.
100% of proceeds from these shirts goes to the community by way of PTM Foundation's ongoing 'Water is Life' grants. Previous ‘Water is Life’ grant recipients include DigDeep’s Navajo Water Project and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs in Portugal. The Man's home state of Oregon.
On the campaign, Portugal The Man’s John Gourley says, “this campaign is an opportunity for us to help raise awareness, highlight Indigenous artists and activists, and fundraise in support of water access for communities of Indigenous Peoples, who are 19 times less likely to have running water than non-Natives. Over 2 million Americans have no access to running water. We’re taking action because the Government won’t. We can’t just sit back and watch our friends get sick and die. It’s enough.”
This shirt was made in collaboration with Acosia Red Elk (Umatilla) and Josué Rivas (Mexica and Otomí)
