Isabella Zizi is a member of the Northern Cheyenne, Arikara and Muskogee Creek Nations. In 2012, Isabella’s family and community were exposed to a mass explosion at the Chevron refinery which caused 15,000 residents to be hospitalized for respiratory illnesses, nausea and headaches.

Since that day, Isabella has been tirelessly organizing in her community. She organized a series of Refinery Healing Walks with Idle No More SF Bay until July 2017. Individuals walked in prayer and contemplation for clean air and a just transition to a safe and sustainable energy for future generations.
