1-14-17 ~ ‎Brandon Phinazee‎… Any pilots in the air that need a friendly place to land and rest for today’s peaceful protest are more than welcome to land, at your own risk, on our grass runway at Kitty Hawk Estates Airpark. If you need to rest or drive to the site, we have a safe field that you can taxi your plane to. There is a lot of State Trooper activity around the area, everyone please be safe and contact me if needed. This is owner’s permission. Good luck out there today, fighting the good fight!

1-13-17 ~ These are powerful words from Chase IronEyes today.

He points out that the incoming administration has indicated it will pursue a policy that accelerates extraction, big financial interests, and the rights of the corporatocracy. It will advance the longstanding program to absorb and eradicate native peoples, their lands and their cultures. IronEyes advocates continuing the unarmed opposition to these forces at Standing Rock. “We are the ghost dancers of our time. Only this time we have a world of allies.”

Chase IronEyes: “This may be the only opportunity that we have while the world is not only watching us–but the world is waiting on us. The world needs us to lead. We may be the only people–the only natural human beings–who still maintain that spiritual connection to the Universe, to the sacred sites, to water, to all the elements of Creation from which we derive our identity and our civilization.Those are our gifts. We may be the last real ones–the people who could provide that moral and spiritual authority to liberate from those forces which seek to oppress that in us, which have been at work in a very effective manner for a thousand years…. What we are saying is we are committed to this stand.”

“There was a concerted effort to turn us into a nation of beggars, to dehumanize us, to make us hate ourselves, to steal our dignity. But fortunately, our people are strong, our people are survivors, and we are here standing.”

1-12-17 ~ Chief Dan George (July 24, 1899–September 23, 1981) was a chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, a Coast Salish band located on Burrard Inlet in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He was also an author, poet, and an Academy Award-nominated actor.

Chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, a Coast Salish band whose Indian reserve is located on Burrard Inlet in the southeast area of the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He was also an actor, poet and author; his best-known written work was “My Heart Soars”.As an actor, he is best remembered for portraying Old Lodge Skins opposite Dustin Hoffman in Little Big Man (1970), for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Born as Geswanouth Slahoot in North Vancouver, his English name was originally Dan Slaholt. The surname was changed to George when he entered a residential school at age 5. He worked at a number of different jobs, including as a longshoreman, construction worker, and school bus driver, and was band chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation from 1951 to 1963 (then called the Burrard Indian Band).

In 1960, when he was already 60 years old, he landed his first acting job in a CBC Television series, Cariboo Country, as the character Ol’ Antoine (pron. “Antwine”). He performed the same role in a Walt Disney Studios movie Smith! (1969), adapted from an episode in this series (based on Breaking Smith’s Quarter Horse, a novella by Paul St. Pierre). At age 71, he received several honors for his role in the film Little Big Man (1970), including a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He continued to act in other films, such as Cancel My Reservation (1972), Alien Thunder (1974), The Bears and I (1974), Harry and Tonto (1974), The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976), Shadow of the Hawk (1976), Americathon (1979), Spirit of the Wind (1979) and Nothing Personal (1980), and on television, including a role in the 1978 miniseries Centennial, based on the book by James A. Michener, as well as appearing in a 1973 episode of the original Kung Fu series and in several episodes of The Beachcombers.

He played the role of Rita Joe’s father in George Ryga’s stage play, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, in performances at Vancouver, the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, and Washington, D.C..

During his acting career, he worked to promote better understanding by non-aboriginals of the First Nations people. His soliloquy, Lament for Confederation, an indictment of the appropriation of native territory by white colonialism, was performed at the City of Vancouver’s celebration of the Canadian centennial in 1967.This speech is credited with escalating native political activism in Canada and touching off widespread pro-native sentiment among non-natives.

In 1971, George was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. In 2008 Canada Post issued a postage stamp in its “Canadians in Hollywood” series featuring Chief Dan George.
He died in Vancouver in 1981 at the age of 82. He was interred at Burrard Cemetery.

1-12-17 ~ THE GATHERING by Chief Sitting Bull
The Turning of The Tide

It is very important that as many people as possible, in different places, should take part in the Gathering. Decide where and when and how to gather, your participation is needed. This is the beginning of the break we are all waiting for. This is the beginning of the turnaround. We have waited so long for the change. It is time. This is the beginning of the end of the old ways, the turning of the tide. State what you believe is true. Exchange the information and hopes you have. Always in the world, a change starts with a few people. These few speak the feelings and thoughts of a multitude. They speak the heart of humanity’s soul. The people who are coming together will ring in a return, a turnaround. There will come a flow on Earth which will burst the dark energies surrounding you and your planet. Let your self-belief be your guide, and follow your heart. Realise the greatness you have within yourself, and go ahead. This is the time so many have waited so long for. That which you believe is true must be stated.

Spirit message from Chief Sitting Bull

A strong woman

She is both

1-12-17 ~ Wicapi Otto‎ … Army Corp of Engineers needs to understand just how many people are affected by not only this pipeline, but many pipelines across the world. This is for everyone, there is absolutely no exclusion of nation, country, background…etc.

This is going to be given to the tribe and Army Corp of Engineers. I have never understood how things go viral, but I guess for a first time attempt, let’s see how this goes, because I need viral on this. A petition is one thing, it makes a statement, and this is to reflect the effect on human activity. Our connectivity as a human race is a human activity and a simple one to show them how many people object to not only DAPL, but as our voice to oppose all. Trolls are welcome as well, your number will be added to the count of people that matter and are affected to human activity as well. I only ask those in support not to respond to them and waste precious time and energy with negativity. This is very important.

I only need you to state “I am affected” and your location. It does not need to be specific, just please keep it simple as I have to convert this to a document after and wasted data only wastes time.

Thank you everyone everywhere for helping with this. Pilamiya!

PS. If every now and then, someone can tag my name for check in, I have a couple of these going around of this exact same post and it will help me locate and check. Thank you!

1-12-17 ~ Daphne Singingtree… Camp Update. We need people on site more than ever. A recent meeting between the Standing Rock Tribal Council and Camp Leaders from Oceti Sakowin, Sacred Stone and Rosebud showed the need for increased communication. Sacred Stone is located on higher ground and is building a permanent, sustainable, culture camp. This is an extraordinary outcome from the protest that will serve provide a space for people in the area to come and learn skills from permaculture, to green energy & building, as well as be a base for the movement to protect the water and the Earth. The Oceti & Rosebud camps will need to move to higher ground. Land has been set aside by the Standing Rock Tribe for a camp that can house many people, plans include solar/wind power, yurt and tipi villages, greenhouses and gardens, and a long term sustainable community. It is unclear to me at this point how many folks will be moving to the new tribe site, or the higher ground on the current Oceti site (Facebook Hill), or some of the other protest camps such as Texas. Moving the tipis, yurts and other structures will be a lot of work, especially to accomplish before snow melt.

Everyone shares concerns about the amount of trash, abandoned tents, and other items that are located in the floodplain. Without timely removal, there is a risk of contaminating the very river we are protecting. No one expected thousands, at one point ten thousand people to show up at camp. Then the severe weather came, most people left, leaving behind a lot of stuff and not enough people to process the donations, and then clean up afterwards.

We need able bodied people who are able to work in the cold, please plan on coming to help, even for a week or two, anytime over the next month or two. The burden is falling on people who work incredibly hard, they are getting sick, burned out, and it is easy to get discouraged when faced with such a monumental task. We particularly need people with 4×4 trucks and trailers. Let’s not forget our Water Protectors and Water Warriors. Let’s not leave a giant mess on people who can ill afford to clean it up.

Some of the resources donated will be relocated to other camps. Other supplies need to be protected from the elements until spring or distributed in the local community. All of this takes work, and the medics are busy keeping people safe and healthy. We need help to recycle and remove trash, as well as helping move the yurts and tipis to the new site. So many people have left that there are sleeping spaces available, if you don’t have a contact with someone in camp and want to help Zaniyan at Rosebud, I can get you connected.

The fight is not over, the movement has just began, we have much hard labor ahead of us, and still need the help and support of all. #nodapl #waterislife

1-11-17 ~ Canadian Native Youth Arrive at Standing Rock After Walking for Almost a Month – Buffalo greeted the youth as they arrived at the #NoDAPL camp site.

Three youth from the Woodland Cree First Nation in Saskatchewan, Canada, arrived to the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock in North Dakota yesterday (January 10) after walking since November 26, 2016. This journey symbolized their solidarity with the #NoDAPL movement against the 1,172-mile long Dakota Access Pipeline set to cut through sacred territories of the Sioux people.

1-11-17 ~ Luta Wi Red Fawn… Hello all my friends, family and support. As you know I had a hearing yesterday and I was formally charged, and the charges carry sentences that add up to 25 years to life in federal prison.

I’ve been getting messages about a lot of you being concerned and worried. So I wanted to let you know that I stand strong, I stay in prayer, and I never falter from my beliefs as a protector of all things sacred.

I’m doing good, I’m clear headed, I appreciate my strong support system. I appreciate the 20+ letters and cards I get everyday. As they remind me to believe in all good things .

“When will they open their eyes and heart and listen to our cries and please and prayers to protect our dying Mother Earth. I believe this is the time when we as protectors of this land . We need to stand up, stand strong, and never give up. We are obligated to the protection of this earth, we have been taught this from child hood. Our ancestors made sure we would know our creation stories, our histories and our instructions to continue the care taking, the protection and the spiritual obligations to this land for our next seven generations and to our ancestors. My heart, my prayers and my strength are with you all.

Mitakuye Oyate”

1-10-17 ~ Paul Schmidtlein… O ci yo, A Lesson from Standing Rock; Border towns are still oppressive. Not much has changed since the reservation system was set up. People from around the world saw images and video of what Natives have been going through for generations in towns next to reservations.

The gathering of Indigenous Nations in Standing Rock showed unity between each other because of a common shared belief, Water is Life. Another shared belief might bring them together again to organize Indigenous Nations Peace Keepers to act like a shield when indigenous peoples try to exercise their treaty rights and Constitutional rights.

1-10-17 ~ Heart of Standing Rock… Dignity is a sculpture on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River near Chamberlain, South Dakota. The 50-foot high stainless steel statue, by South Dakota artist laureate Dale Lamphere, depicts an Indigenous woman in Plains-style dress receiving a star quilt. According to Lamphere, the sculpture honors the culture of the Lakota and Dakota peoples who are indigenous to South Dakota.

“My intent for this is to have the sculpture stand as an enduring symbol of our shared belief that we are in a sacred place and that we are all sacred,” Lamphere said. “I’m humbled and so grateful to have this chance to contribute to the future landscape of South Dakota and the Great Plains.”

“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.” – Michael J. Fox

1-1-2017 ~ Waniya Locke, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
“I came to help. I came home to help, because I want to protect the future. And part of protecting our future is learning our language. So Lakota language is the essence of who we are; it’s the spirit of who we are. You can strip a person of food and clothing, and even their spirituality and they’ll be okay. But once you strip a person of their language, they lose everything. They lose all their identity. They lose their connection to their land, to their ancestors, and to their own relatives. So Lakota Revitalization was a path that was found for me. It wasn’t something I went out seeking. I fell into language, and I ended up being really good at it, and all these doors unlocked for me to become a language teacher.

I teach 140 students a day. They come through my classroom forty minutes a day, every day, Monday through Friday. So I teach five classes a day, Monday through Friday to 140 students. And we revitalize the language. We actually speak in our language. But language is the foundation of everything. So that entails our stories, entails our history, that entails our spirituality, our songs and our dance. Lakota language is really vital to who we are. A lot of people don’t realize this; there’s four prongs that make the people sovereign. You have to have people. You have to have land base. You have to have culture. And you have to have a language. And that’s according to the United Nations, in order for people to be sovereign. If one of those prongs is missing, like language, then we can lose our sovereignty rights. And that’s really vital to who we are.”

Heart of Standing Rock… Patty Porter, Colville Confederate Tribes – Paddled 250 miles down the head waters of the Missouri river to the Oceti Sakowin Camp.

“We started our paddle from Bismarck, and we came down about 23 – 24 miles. Then the storm hit. We had a massive storm. It was a life altering storm. Some (fellow paddlers) were on the left side of the river that had to get out. Some were way behind that got left and jumped into a cabin. There were like 30 people out of the dug outs in one cabin, and my partner and I were stuck in the middle. And he goes, “Should we turn back?”, and I say, “No, we can’t turn back or we’ll die.”

I told him all we could do is go to the lights. They’re flashing the lights, and our brothers were on the shore flashing lights, and we’re just going. The hail just had to been massive big. We had lightning and thunder all the way around us just hitting. The water was so unbelievable. we couldn’t even see the end of our kayak. We had a massive white out, and I got hit in the eye with a hail and I could hardly see. And we tipped over a couple times, and I was told kayak can’t tip over. Well, we were real close a couple times.

I froze, and all I could hear was my dad, “Holler. Holler!” So I did. To me, it was close. It was real close, and I thought to myself when I froze, “Nobody’s going to come out and save you. You gotta dig, woman.” So I started digging and I could hear my dad, “Holler.” So I did, “Whooooooooo!” I hollered as loud as I could, and I don’t know how many times and we couldn’t even see the lights. That’s how my brothers on shore could know where we were.
The storm of my life.”

One does not sell the Earth the people walk upon Crazy Horse Poem by the – J Grady
This short digital film features a historic moment that happened on the front line against the Dakota access pipeline. On November 5th, 2016 representatives of the Seven Council fires of the Oceti Sakowin gathered to reignite the sacred fire of the resistance camp and establish the “horn” of the nation, a camp layout where 7 lodges are placed in a circle formation.

This moment was marked by the entrance of over 200 horseback Riders and the arrival of 50 runners who traveled over 1,200 miles to Standing Rock from Arizona.

The last time such an event occurred was in the late 1800s! That’s The Power of this movement. That’s The Power of our prayer.

1-8-17 Standing Rock Update With #NoDAPL Warrior Michael Markus (1/8/2017) Fun Time- Mystic Dave

1-8-17 ~ From Serra to Syrah: The Bloody Roots of California’s Vineyards
When Pope Francis made Father Junipero Serra a saint at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C. on September 23, 2015, it cast light on the brutal history and treatment of Native Americans during the Mission period. But Californians shouldn’t sit back smugly and think that violence against Indians was just a problem of the Franciscans. Serra, a citizen of Spain, may have started the trend of forcing Indians to work against their will, but the Mexicans and Americans who assumed control over California at different points in the 19th Century were worse in many ways.

1-8-17 ~ Wicapi Otto‎… So apparently, they surveyed a 400 ft wide segment but expanded their study area corridor (the normal 400 ft) a mile on either side of centerline.

What that means is that out one mile on each side of the middle of the pipeline they surveyed.

However they are within .55 miles of the reservation. If this is true, then they would have had to go to the tribe to assure passage (as this would have crossed into LaDonna’s property as the Cannonball River is located just shy of .75 miles from the drill site). With the location of Sacred Stone, they would have been up on the Rez.

I believe we all know DAPL is lying. They didn’t and are holding onto the fact that they did and want to deny that they affect any cultural sites for the tribe, but in a prior section admit there is high probability that there is cultural considerations.

So which is it? They did or didn’t? This would be a good reason to contact Army Corp again and demand the EIS knowing this. Conflict deems a requirement for EIS.

1-7-17 ~ Isaac Ames… This is Brenda White Bull… Today, just after this recording that I MADE MYSELF, a black truck slowed down and the gentleman sitting shotgun yelled out of the window for her to ‘Go home!’

I can only note the conundrum in this statement because she’s a retired Marine and was a drill instructor at Paris Island from 98′-00′. An honorably discharged MARINE on a walk through America was told to ‘Go home’.

I want everyone to let this sink in for a moment, just mull it over and let it marinate in your head.

Not to put to fine a point on it but I’ve got some questions:

Where are the other Marines that would walk with her? Where are the Marines that have her back? Where are the Marines that would stand beside her? Where are all the other Marines?

Lastly, where exactly is the home she is to go to as an honorably discharged MARINE?!

I thought it was this country but it seems others believe otherwise.

Would any Marines I know care to answer any of these questions?

Perhaps share this post so I can get some answers?

I’ll wait.

Supplemental edit: I spoke with the other walkers and they were all harassed in one form or another by this same vehicle as it traveled down the road. However for the one or two individuals behaving in such a manner there were dozens that showed us a great deal of generosity and support.

I want everyone to know that the McLean County Sheriffs have been very courteous, considerate, and supportive of the Youth Unity Journey for Sacred Waters. If anyone would like to contact them and express their appreciation or gratitude they can be reached day or night at 701-462-8103.

1-7-17 ~ Idle No More Washington… “Hoeven — a former North Dakota governor and vocal supporter of both the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines — was elected to lead the committee on Tuesday… The Indian Affairs committee is tasked with proposing legislation that addresses the concerns of “American Indian, Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native peoples,” including land management and economic development… Sen. Hoeven’s new job is ironic because he has repeatedly opposed causes that Native Americans support. The Dakota Access Pipeline is the most recent example. As thousands of (peaceful protectors) from across Indian Country converged on Cannon Ball, North Dakota, over the latter half of 2016 to block the (destructive) pipeline’s completion, Hoeven (erroneously) called the (protection actions) ‘violent’ and asked President Barack Obama to deploy federal law enforcement to quell them…”

Guess it just didn’t occur to them to get an actual American Indian to head the committee on Indian Affairs. Hello? How long are we going to remain the most backward industrialized country on earth? Forever? Is that the plan?

1-5-17 ~ Wiyaka Zi Wicasa‎… Yes, there’s a lot of social media misrepresentation. I know there is. From being in the camp and coming back out. For example, the way Dallas and Chase are always on Facebook, acting like they have the authority to speak on or represent us. We are the Traditional Leadership and the Legitimate 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty Representatives. We never gave them permission to speak on our Treaties or on our behalf at Oceti Sakowin. They also talk about donations that we’ve never seen. I’m speaking about the Cheyenne River North Encampment. You might want to know that when you send money to a personal PayPal or Gofundme account then it’s their money to do with as they please. They have done what they please with it and continue to do so. Dallas dipped out with his accounts months ago. It’s my understanding that he had solicited a very sizable sum too. Chase doesn’t even live in the camp. I’m sure he has a Gofundme or PayPal account as well. He had a room as of the 30th, at the casino, and didn’t even invite people from the camps to take showers in his room. No, definitely not Lakota leadership. Our Traditional Leadership is in our camps with us.

1-5-17 ~ Mitra Singh… I understand the problems are far greater than even I can fathom! My hands are tied, I am powerless to do anything as a non-native everything must be native led and solved or it will never work. I do not even deserve to be in any of the camps period!! Back in 1988 I went home with my BFF to the Rez near Riodoso for Thanksgiving and it took my friend’s father an act of congress to even let me come for that weekend. Picked up the axe and started chopping wood… I was not allowed to be there end of story but they let me come, so humbling for me- opposite of humiliation- humility is something totally different!! I come with my own skills, funding and resources willing to share and leave… show me where the axe is and I will start chopping YOU show me where the axe is laid and I will serve. My best friend was afraid I would not appreciate her people but that adobe home with dirt floors would change my life forever. (her later heroin addiction would separate our affections for one another but I still love her and pray she can get clean)

1-4-16 ~ Aho kolas… To live is to survive. Don’t put up a fence if you have more than what your family needs to survive. Make your table bigger. And invite those that have less to nothing. To survive in this world, is to live amongst others in peace and sharing. Not to be humble, but for the race of human beings. Aho kolas

1-2-17 Mitra Singh… The story about when the HQ Vet Tent was coming down at Standing Rock December 6th 2016.

Almost all my facebook friends know I have issues around fire. I even have a fire evacuation plan at home the dogs and I drill for. Almost all my devotee friends from the temple also know I had huge issues during my harinama initiation cause of the fire sacrifice that went along with it. Almost all my cannabis buds know because of extra electrical requirements in growing plants I am crazy about the location of the balasts. 2004 I was in an apartment fire so I know everything there is to know about fire dangers and fire safety.

Another veteran, an older officer Vietnam/Korean era stately gentleman voiced his concern to me as I was passing out cold medicine. The large Army tent was not doing well in the wind, 75 mph winds against the canvas was nerve wracking. I know. Puma was panting even though it was cold, the wind was causing Puma distress/fear.

I survey our tent… all I can see are the 3 wood burning stoves keeping everybody warm. I see that canvas coming down onto the stoves, I see these poles coming down and trapping people. I memorize every seem of this structure. Only one way out thru the front door. How long would it take for a fire to spread if only one pole comes down? We are over crowded to begin with well over 40 people in a tent that should only have 20.

I don’t care what President Elect Trump says about “Max occupany limits” there is a reason for this and it has nothing to do with Trumps happiness or distress. There are 3 of these such tents all pitched within a few feet of each other, the speed of the wind should one tent come down in less than 60 seconds seconds a fire would break out and in less than 30 seconds a fire would jump to the next tent (another 40 veterans packed in staying warm on wood or propane stoves). This is a death trap.

I reach into my pocket and feel for my gerber, check. I take full authority to control this situation. Believe me I got a lot of eye rolls… Singh go to sleep…. Hell no! I drill every vet in my tent, where is the closest seem to where they were? do they have a gerber or knife to cut themselves out of the canvas? Count off… how many are in this tent? (the numbers kept changing cause visitors would come in since we were the Headquarters to get warm and leave) We had to have a count.

I drilled into every eye rolling veteran where is our rally point? The old chow hall converted to an aide station about 25 feet away. The tents are fine they say…. they are strong Army tents, state of the art technology we are fine… NO… listen to me. I raise my voice as I have never done before.

I go to the vet tent next door and the tent master stopped me… Oh Singh STHU… these are strong Army tents state of the art technology. At parade rest I stood, “With all due respect Sir”… I tell their tent captain “We have 75 mph winds, the chances of these tents coming down is extremely high, if the tents come down we are over occupied, we will all die. One veteran in the tent next door asked me under what authority was I speaking? my answer to him was very simple. I lived thru an apartment fire where I was the first first responder on the scene, all the jumpers lived. now I am saying…. where is our rally point? know your seems, know now to cut yourselves out if needed. I got frustrated and left that tent, the tent captain said he was in charge and would make sure his tent was safe. FINE.

I go to the next vet tent with the same song and dance. Puma by my side we cut thru the blizzard, complete white out with the snow and not enough light to find my way to the last tent.

My neighborhood is all aware. They know where the seems are like it or not….. and the rally point was the old chow how.

Finally snuggled Puma in my aratic sleeping bag for the night.
about 4 hours later…….
Down comes our HQ Tent.

Everybody, I mean everybody jump to action. As men were holding up the poles the first most important thing we were all doing was putting out the stoves. The men would hold up the tent until ALL fire was out. I saw the next day our stoves were thrown outside the tent! to prevent the whole camp from going up in flames.
Two by two vets were evacuating in a calm and precise manner reporting to the rally point we planned ahead.

So eye roll at me again…… That’s okay, I take no offense cause you do know…. these were the best Army tents around, state of the art technology.

ALL Veterans in our corner of the camp were safe, frozen it seemed but safe.

As a result of everybody’s cooperation and quick thinking this could have turned into a living nightmare putting 120 Veterans lives in danger. I don’t even want to know what could have happend if that canvas came down on our stoves in 75 mph winds.

1-1-17 ~ Mitra Singh… You know what? just give the people back their damn canoes. Okay… a canoe is in no way a threat to National Security, and nobody has ever harmed you from a canoe. Canoes are a very slow means of water transportation, they do not even have a motor. Unless your worried about people paddling upstream in the middle of the winter which is not illegal by the way…. Why, what is the whole point in the confiscation of the canoes? They do not belong to you now GIVE THEM BACK. Are you using these canoes as your trophy? You don’t need any trophy’s for a job not done so well in the first place.

1-1-17 ~ Standing Rock Update (1/3/2017) Couple Arrested During New Years Eve Prayer Walk – 411 TRUTH

letourvoicesecho-nodapl-standingrock-ocetioyate-001

1-1-17 ~ ‎Robert Ferguson… The outlook for Standing Rock 2017. Right now Dapl is poised to drill under the river and complete the pipeline. The only thing holding Dapl up is the Army Corps of Engineers refusal to issue Dapl a permit to drill through the Federally owned Land under Lake Oahe. The President has the final say on the permit. Right now the president is a friend of Standing Rock, the next one doesn’t appear to be so friendly……. According to law, the Corps can call for an EIS – Environmental Impact Statement, and it has promised to do so very soon. An EIS would entail a thorough study of the impacts of the pipeline under the lake, from the first drilling, all the way thru to the expected end of the lifespan of the pipe, and what may happen were the pipe to break spilling crude oil into the lake’s waters….. So what can we expect? We can expect that any day now the Corps will officially begin the EIS process. An EIS could take as long as or more than a year. Only after the EIS is complete and signed off on could the Corps issue said permit. So, we can expect to have the camps in place for another year, at least.

What if there is no EIS and the next president tells the Corps to issue the permit? We can expect to see the water protectors raise hell. We can expect to see thousands more arrests. We can expect to see hundreds of protests in US cities which could become problematic for the PTB – Powers That Be. …. If you agree, now is the time to make your voice heard and maybe we can make the government aware that we will settle for only an EIS, and not given an EIS there will be problems galore for the president, the corps, the state and the county for who knows how long. If we are given the EIS peace will reign for at least a year. The choice is yours government: give the people what they want or the people are going to give you something you don’t want – TROUBLE.

12-16-16 ~ Kellie Love… WE ARE THE FIRST GROUP OF WATER PROTECTORS WHO WERE ARRESTED AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We are in a situation right now where we need media on our situation in order for the world to know what’s going on. The judge has so far approved every motion granted by the States attorney and has denied every one of our motions.

Right now, the states attorney, same guy who tried to charge Amy Goodman with terrorism for covering the story of Standing Rock, is asking the court to disallow all of our video and evidence that would prove our innocence and uphold our constitutional right to express under our first amendment, while simultaneously submitted false lies against us.

Please share!!!! We would love to have an interview with Amy Goodman so that the public can know what’s going on. What happens in our cases will affect the rest of the cases behind us. We need a really good legal advice and media to support us.

Please stand with us and help! Share and keep us in your prayers!

12-15-16 ~ Magpie Waters Productions… Didn’t they see the “No Trespassing” signs all over the West? It was their manifest destiny to tame the wilderness, to make canals out of rivers and streams. To bring different plants, animals, and ways to the West. A West that was great but the greed of railroad companies, timber barons, fur trade companies, and miners and pioneers decimated the once Great West. Teddy Roosevelt and other influential politicians and people set aside lands to be preserved to save what was left. Today in Standing Rock the Warriors of the Rainbow fight to protect the water of millions of people now. They are also fighting for their ancestors then. Validating their ways, their strength and their sacrifice for now. They fight for the future too, bless them, pray for them because the fight is still on because greed will not stop, it cannot be satisfied, but it can be beat with unity in purpose.

12-14-16 ~ Some were quoted as saying it was the first time they truly felt as though they were serving and protecting their country. One speech was made by a native veteran, who at one point said “The difference between a soldier and a warrior is that a soldier takes orders–a warrior does what’s right.”

Thankful for the veterans who came, those that have been here since the beginning, those who have stayed, and those who will come.

letourvoicesecho-ocetioyate-doctrineofdiscovery

12-14-16… The Doctrine of Discovery was denounced and burned up on Standing Rock by Church Representatives & our relatives today! The Doctrine of Discovery is a major cause of our grandparents getting their hair cut off, beaten for speaking our language….this was a major reason why millions of our ancestors were killed around the world.

I believe the clergymen recognized that this also is a big reason our treaties were not honored, this is why Dakota Access Pipeline and Morton County, North Dakota have disregard our rights and removed our protectors…the reason why they terrorize our protectors for Standing Together peacefully and unarmed.

This is long overdue, but the strength and prayers for Standing Rock has awakend the true human spirit and has given courage to those who let the rich control them. There are good people in this world in all races and walks of life. The unity and prayers have united us to start taking the steps to make ammendments and work together!

I am confident I am making the right decision, but guilt is weighing on me for sure.
To my family back home, thank you so much for your blessings and know I love you and think about you everyday. You give me the strength to stand and inspire me daily to fight for what is right. I’d be lost without you.

12-14-16 ~ Sophia Wilansky… Update: This is what my arm looks like as of Tuesday 12/13/16, 22 days after law enforcement on highway 1806 hit it with a grenade which exploded on contact, and 3 days after I was finally discharged from the hospital. The black rods are an external fixator (ex-fix) which is screwed into my bones to hold them in place; the bone is fractured and a piece is missing. I lost both arteries in my arm and one was replaced with a vein taken from my left leg; I am about to stop taking blood thinner shots but I will have to take aspirin for the rest of my life because a blood clot in the vein-turned-artery would make me lose the arm. Next, my arm was stuffed with a large piece of my lat muscle; I still have a device draining fluids from inside my back where the muscle was taken from. Finally, my arm was covered with a large skin graft taken from my right thigh. All of this skin will take at least a year to look relatively normal. In the bottom left corner of this photo you can see the bullet wound from where I was shot right before I was hit with the grenade.

12-13-16 ~ Vonda Eagle Horse, Oglala Lakota Sioux… “This is where I, Vonda Eagle Horse, Walks First Woman, Wounded Knee Descendant, American Indian Movement. I say, apologize for killing my grandpa James High Hawk, and remove those 22 medals of honor for killing all of our people down at Wounded Knee. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should be ashamed of yourselves. There are rules in combat, and you never apologized for that. Who does that? Kind of like what we went through over here, tanks against tarps. I mean a whole million dollar fight against forty, fifty dollar donated tarps. That’s okay, because out of faith and fear, faith will always win. And you know, you need to apologize and stop making a spectacle of yourselves. The world is watching. The world knows. All these injustices and atrocities have now come to an end. We are now in a very holy moment. Remove those 22 Medals of Honor, please.

We forgave that, my dad, my children, we forgave that. We see this Wounded Knee Memorial Ride every year, and I’m honored to see our family and our people persevere through those elements and conditions. Yet, some of us have laid that to rest, and we’ve never gotten an apology, but we’ve laid that to rest. Our people will continue to do the Big Foot Ride until we get an apology for the Wounded Knee Massacre, and you take those 22 Medals of Honor away. Who does that? This was so precious to the United States government. They use to take the children and just rip them off their cradle boards and just execute them on tree trunks. Who does that? They’re kind of doing the same thing here at Oceti Sakowin, and if I lose my life up here, it’s very very valuable to me to see our people continue to survive…continue to go on.”

12-12-16 ~ GREETINGS FROM THE NAHOLOWA’A OHANA
On Thursday, December 8, Bert Allen “B.A.” Naholowa’a suffered a heart attack. He was outside of the gas station near the Prairie Knights Casino. He was there doing maintenance on his RV. He’d been in the area since roughly November 26th serving as a volunteer medic to water protectors at Oceti Sakowin Camp.

B.A. received first aid, and an ambulance was called to assist him. He was taken to Fort Yates Hospital. He did not recover and passed away that day.

B.A. was Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian), American Irish, and American Chinese. B.A. was a second generation Air Force veteran. B.A. resided in Arizona. He is survived by 4 children, their mother and their partners, 8 grandchildren, 3 sisters and a large extended family.

From B.A.’s family:
“We were regularly in contact with dad while he was volunteering at the camp. He was honored to be there and of service to the camp community. Thanks to all that made his experience a good one. He walked on in a good way. We are sure he is in peace.

The Naholowa’a Ohana is happy to receive visitors for B.A. at a visitation on December 13th from 11 am to 1 pm at Dawise Perry Funeral Home in Mandan, North Dakota. Later his ashes will be taken home to Hawai‘i for further services.”

—————————————————
We express our deepest sympathies to B.A.’s Ohana and want everyone to know that B.A. left a beautiful lasting impression on all who he had contact with. We don’t have words to describe the loss that those of us who had the honor of knowing B.A. are feeling; but we are grateful for the time we did get to spend with him – time well spent caring for the water protectors. We are also grateful that B.A.’s family could come to camp and hold a memorial service today. Those of us who were able to come were very blessed by the songs and ceremony.

We ask everyone to please give the family time and space to heal. We love you all.

We Are The Media….. This elderly man spent his final days as a medic helping campers at Standing Rock! Thank you, Bert Allen “B.A.” Naholowa’a, for giving up your last days to help water protectors and everyone at the camps. His family says he walked along a good path and that campers made his experience a positive one. Be in peace; we are thinking of you and honoring your life today.

‎12-13-16 ~ Fawn Lily‎… The government is lying. SHOCKER. I’m sure you all know. Yes, the fight is still on out here. We are still camping in subzero temperatures, for real. Oceti (now named All Nations), Rosebud, and Sacred Stone Camps all still stand.

DAPL IS STILL BUILDING.

Sadly, a large majority of people have abandoned us because they fell for the government’s tricks and think it’s over. “Victory” the media calls it? 46 dapl floodlights shining on camp every night tell us otherwise (check out the picture below).

I’ve been laying low because I realized how deeply intertwined into all this I have become. I was afraid and paranoid. I had to lay low.

I took the past few weeks to learn how to live. Wo Lakota means the way of life, the way of living, and that’s what we came out here to learn. How to sustain yourself and your community. I know I can learn so much more, but I feel ready to get back into my more mentally taxing work again and to continue to keep my tribe at home informed of the raw and honest T R U T H.

In respect of my fellow protectors out here and security culture, I cannot release any more details. Please just know we are still out here and spread the word.

Thank you all for the continuous love and support. I feel it everyday, from all over the world. But we need you all to know that the fight is still on, so you continue to send it our way.

If you want to send us supplies, please send construction material (plywood, nails, screws, insulation, tools, etc) and firewood.
Much love ♥ ♥ ♥

The fire burma bright inside each of you who were here!

12-12-16 ~ ‎Crystal Houser‎… I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting more updates for you all. There is so much to talk about, so much to write, so much to do. It is very difficult keeping a phone charged in the cold, and charging takes three times as long…I haven’t had a full charge since I arrived, reception has been poor during the storms… And again, there is so much to do. Even if there wasn’t, it would be a travesty to be stuck on my phone out here….I want to share with you, but I’m busy living it, really experiencing it.

I can say that morale at Oceti Sakowin feels a little better today with a slight change in the weather and a renewal of the Sacred Fire. The fire drives spiritual morale. My first morning I heard the fire was put out “because our prayers have already been answered”…. To some degree, perhaps many degrees, this is true… But DAPL is still here, Morton County is still at the roadblock, Merc private security presence is no secret… We are still praying, still staying.

I’ve been writing a lot and will share when it is time. I love you all and on behalf of all of us here, I thank you for your continued support.
And we could use more cough medicine, decongestant, expectorant, oregano…. Yes, oregano. Charged pocket chargers for our phones would help us keep in touch better too. Thank you again.

History!
What will history say about 2016 and North Dakota?
Will it be about Native people standing up together with all their allies bring the nations together to go against a billion dollar corporation?
Will they talk about the civil rights violation of the State of North Dakota and Morton County Sheriff Department that represent the South in the 1960s?
Will they talk about the many brave warriors who were injured and will have life long damage by the police and mercenaries hired by oil company?
Will they talk about how government promoted racism and encouraged people to take arms against native people?
Will they talk about the corruption of the press and the spread of lies in the newspaper and television?
Will they talk about racial profiling allowed in stores and businesses?
Will they talk about asking businesses not sell goods to the people?
Will they talk about refusing emergency services to native people?
Will they talk about the pepper spray, mace, tear gas, rubber bullets, the grenades, the bean bags the water cannons and the physical abuse by the officers on the protectors?
Will they talk about destruction of our ceremonial grounds and burials?
Will they talk about police abuse and the made up charges on people?
Will they talk about their open racial comments among themselves?
Will they talk about the illegal corporation they defend?
Will they talk about being paid by the oil company?
Will they talk about arresting the press and medics?
Will the talk about how they violation their constitution?
Will they talk about how ACLU, Amestry International, United Nations are calling in to record the abuse?
How will North Dakota record this history? I am not worried because we have recorded and we will remember and tell our children and grandchildren how we stood for the water.

We are in a heat wave of 4 degrees. Yes, I said 4 degrees.

No matter how hard or tough it is outside, we must remember my friends there. There are those out who would love to experience this weather by getting out and just feeling this by walking, stretching or running in this weather.

Never take you life for granted ever. As there are our relatives, relations and friends who just want to feel alive as they trying to heal their bodies including those who are bedridden. We offer prayers for the many in the 4~Directions.

So when your complaining about weather conditions or a bad day. Many would love to trade places.

We also pray for those who lost love ones while fighting for the sacred waters. Help their families with strength, courage and love. They will never be forgotten but always remembered.

12-11-16 ~ Brandon Green… Creator tonight’s prayer is for those who are full of fear, uncertainty and doubt. I pray for these people deeply in my heart. I want them to be assured tonight that there is a force at work in this entire world, RIGHT NOW, fighting for the greater good of all mankind. No matter your race, religion, sexual preferences; no matter what differences that seem to separate us by our own ignorance. We all deserve to be free. We all deserve to be a self creation of who we are. In this coming future, evil will not have solid ground to stand on. Evil will not to be welcomed but exiled into the wilderness where Mother nature will tend to them. I pray my people learn to pray because the power of prayer is unbelievable. I claim no religion, I walk no path carved by man. I walk the path Creator has laid before my feet and Creator has a path for you if you would just open your eyes and see truth. I pray we shed all fear of the unknown because if we place our trust in Creator, there is NOTHING to fear. Only when you slip away into the evil society should you fear, for Creators wrath will be upon you. Forever seek the light my family. Your not walking alone, I am walking with you. Aho!

12-11-16 ~ LaDonna Tamakawastewin Allard… When i first saw people coming in to stand against Dakota Access pipeline on the April 1st at Grand River Casino I was overwhelm with thankfulness, the youth runners, women and children walkers, horse riders, Biker riders and the Seven Council fires. They came to stand with us and what is seen in July made me cry for days as the people of the world came to stand with us. As we stood with people of the world i felt a healing of the land and then… we were attacked I was shocked at the behavior of the state against peaceful people. The people still stood against the violence in prayer, song and dance. We stood with our many cultures united we stood is laughter and story telling, in the morning you can hear the songs across the camps. As some people getting ready to leave the camp because of the weather we know that they carry us in our hearts. I pray they carry the lesson of the camps to where ever they live. It is time to change the world thought we can live with our earth in respect and honor by learning to stop fossil fuel and start using green energy. Lets change the world by protecting the water everywhere.”

12-10-16 ~ Chase IronEyes
Ignore all the rumors and fear.
“Someone died at camp”
“they’re flooding the camp” (is that “public” yet)
“the Tribe dropped its lawsuit”
“the Tribe is closing the camp”
“They’re not letting anyone into camp”

The truth is about 1000 people minimum are still at camp. We are doing all we can to make sure they’re safe. They can leave on their own. I’m not doing anything but coordinating. The medics, camp organizers and each and every person there are doing all the work, so many people are stepping up when others are abandoning this fight. Talking about the “front lines are in the court now.”

The Standing Rock Tribal Gov. doesn’t have the authority to “close” the camp. The State of North Dakota doesn’t have the authority to “close” the camp. The worst case scenario is the Army Corp of Eng requests assistance from ND Law Enf to evacuate the camp (if leaseholder says they’re interfering with his rights), or they just flood it, but that is a really really bad look for anyone, except Trump.

I don’t even think the Standing Rock gov can legally block access to the camp from the south without the help of North Dakota. The Tribe could request Army Corp and the leaseholder of the land where the big camp is to start the process for evacuation but that would be interesting how we are not willing to step up against the Republican controlled brutality but we will step up to kick our allies out. And, finally nobody at camp is even aware of all the rumors at the top of the post, that’s all in our online heads. It is deadly cold out so do not hesitate to reach out or leave, but those die hards holding strong, we are here to help. Many thanks to all hosting families and responding to this. People are assembling to decide their own futures here, on their own terms.

Josué Rivas Fotographer with Scarlet Luta Whetstone… The main fire at the Oceti Sakowin camp was put out today. This is the first fire you would see when entering the camp by the flag road. So many tribes showed up and introduced themselves here. So many people gathered here. This fire might be out but it travels with every one of us. This is the cycle of our movement. It’s all connected.

***CLARIFICATION ***
The horn (7 sacred fires) fire, Sacred Stone Camp fire, and others are still up and running. The elders were told in ceremony it was time to put out this specific fire because the prayers had been heard. This doesn’t mean that the fight is over, I personally believe that is the beginning of a new chapter.

12-9-16 ~ Shaun King… Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. https://www.generosity.com/fundraising/last-real-indians-nodapl-aid

Since I emailed you this morning, you have donated $263,342 to the indigenous people of Standing Rock. With that, they will immediately purchase at least one pickup truck, at least one moving truck, a flatbed trailer, and at least one 15 passenger van. Your generosity will also allow the team in Standing Rock to immediately purchase other essential supplies to sustain them in the crucial months ahead.

Chase Iron Eyes and Edwin Lindo, who is one of the founders of the Injustice Boycott, are actually working on the purchases as I type this. Words cannot express how grateful I am for your generosity. The people of Standing Rock send you their love as well.

That’s all. More than anything, I want you to see the power of us coming together as one unified force. Together, we are changing the world, but we are just scratching the surface of our potential.

Tomorrow, we are stepping up our next action in New York City. Also, I will be appearing on Democracy Now in the morning to discuss the boycott.

Love and appreciate you all!
Your Brother,

12-7-16 ~ Hector Lavalle… “My heart felt heavy and I felt an odd sense of loss and a kind of fear. I realized how I actually felt safer with all those precious, peaceful, conscientious warriors around me. People that care so much about the earth, the water and the community, their family, the people they love. A sense of comradery and connection that is missing in the world. (I looked up the word comradery because my spellcheck didn’t even recognize it. Isn’t that apropos?) The definition was so appropriate, it made me cry.”

“Comradery is the spirit of friendship and community in a group, like the comradery of soldiers at war who keep each other upbeat despite the difficulty of their circumstances. Who is a comrade? A close friend or a fellow soldier — in other words, someone who comes to mind when you say, “We’re in this together.”

12-7-16 ~ Kelly Daniels… Finally made it home to Kansas…

I’ve become suddenly aware of a few things I learn being at Standing Rock..

As I drove into the city I glanced at cars that passed and thought “water protectors” and then realized they weren’t… My heart felt heavy and I felt an odd sense of loss and a kind of fear. I realized how I actually felt safer with all those precious, peaceful, conscientious warriors around me. People that care so much about the earth, the water and the community, their family, the people they love. A sense of comradery and connection that is missing in the world. (I looked up the word comradery because my spellcheck didn’t even recognize it. Isn’t that apropos?) The definition was so appropriate, it made me cry.
“Comradery is the spirit of friendship and community in a group, like the comradery of soldiers at war who keep each other upbeat despite the difficulty of their circumstances. Who is a comrade? A close friend or a fellow soldier — in other words, someone who comes to mind when you say, “We’re in this together.”

The other thing I learned is that I want to honor the lessons I learn at Standing Rock by bringing those lessons home and taking them to heart. Like, loving my family with honor and respect, appreciating my community the way they love and appreciate theirs, laughing more, cooking good food with family and friends, being conscious of the energy I use and the way that I live, simplifying and living lighter on the earth, taking care of my land and honoring my animals, living a prayerful existence, walking in reverence for all of life, singing more, building a community where people take care of one another, ..and circling up around the fire…

I miss Standing Rock. I love Standing Rock. I come from a loving family and friends, and I still have never been anywhere with more meaningful experiences and sense of community and cultural healing .. ever In my life. When we celebrated the Army Corp of engineers decision, I simultaneously felt a collective sense of sadness and fear… The fear that this community may one day end. So many people feel more at home, more loved, more sense of purpose, of being taken care of and connected than any place they’ve ever felt in their lives . I could feel the sense of fear that it could end. A deep sense of sadness…

Being with so many beautiful indigenous people, their laughter, their prayers, their stories, their songs, their dances, and their appreciation of one another has been truly healing to my heart.. truly healing to so many hearts.

As we continue to support this community not only because they need us, but because we need them.. Let us not forget these lessons. Let us honor the beauty that has been created here. The remembering of times of long ago. The remembering of the way we are supposed to live. Close to and honoring the earth and one another. Let us never forget. Let us continue to support this place and replicate it in all communities and in the hearts of people everywhere in our world and daily lives. So we can spread this to all parts of the world. So we can return to the way we are meant to be.

I don’t ever want this to be over and it shall not, it will carry over into the next 7 generations…

letourvoicesecho-nodapl-ocetioyate-chaseironeyes

12-8-16 ~ Chase Iron Eyes… “They didn’t deny the easement out of the goodness of their hearts. They denied it because of the 5,000+ people who sacrificed for clean water. They denied it because the world supports the largest Treaty Camp in history, the American people want to do right. They denied it because 4,000 vets showed up and they could not afford the visual impact of unarmed Uniformed US Vets facing off with armed Uniformed National Guard & Law Enf. That would have exposed the lies that Law Enf & DAPL have been telling the world, that they protect “Law & Order.” The Vets who sign up to defend freedom & our constitution against all enemies “foreign & domestic” finally felt like true patriots because they were willing to stand for freedom against those Law Enf violating the constitution in the name of a corporation. They denied it to stall us, and let business go on as usual. When have we as Native Nations ever won a legal claim without putting our all on the line. We need this camp. DAPL & Law Enf has not demilitarized or demobilized any of their offenses against unarmed protectors. They are there ready to brutalize unarmed citizens even when DAPL says they intend to break the law & ignore the easement denial. Think long & hard about this relatives.”

12-7-16 ~ Magpie Waters Productions… Standing Rock has a decade of story lines but for now to me one thing that stands out is the Indigenous Unity that has been solidified from this movement. A classic example is when the Crow Water Protectors came to Standing Rock and they did so with beauty, honor, and power. The Crow and Sioux were bitter enemies in times past but this fight for water, this fight of Indigenous rights, this fight for a healthy earth brought many groups together that had bitter relations with each other in the past. The past was put in the past and a new future is moving forward. Warriors of the sacred rainbow came together as Dreamer prophets foretold. The fight is on.

12-7-16 ~ Oceti Sakowin Camp…
Thank You Protectors
Press Release: December 7, 2016 �
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Standing Rock Reservation, Oceti Sakowin Camp. North Dakota—Our first concern issafety. We ask all who can and want to leave, to return home. We are especially concerned for elders, families with children, those with health concerns, and/or pets that aren’t acclimated. For those who can stay—and are prepared for arctic conditions—please do, we need people here. The Lakota/Nakota/Dakota people of The Great Sioux Nation have survived in these conditions for thousands of years. If Ally Protectors cooperate with the ancient wisdom and ways of these lands, we will fare well. This movement is unlike any other—it is prayerful as well as peaceful—the consciousness we have raised here continues to resonate across the world.

Secondly we ask this of you in order to conserve resources. Bringing in wood, and other essential life supporting goods, is now much more complicated. For those who want to come, be prepared for arctic conditions, we can’t stress this enough. Be ready to contribute to the survival and safety of the camp in a significant way daily, be abundant in spirit and ready to share. Bring wood, plan to work. We need cooks, medics, builders/repair-persons, people dedicated to the survival of the community, for the coming storms. Bring weather-ready vehicles, 4×4 trucks and trailers, snow-ready vehicles.

Oceti Sakowin Camp remains determined—to protect our land. We have been given the obligation to do so in the treaty of 1851—we were specifically asked to protect this river. This is the way of the Standing Rock people, the Lakota people, the Hunkpapa people. All of the seven tribes of The Great Sioux Nation have gathered here again in an historic way—once as former enemies, we now stand together as brothers and sisters.

We are not protestors.
We are not terrorists.
We are not rioters.
We are in fact, Protectors.

We are here in North Dakota at the sacred gathering to protect the waters. We are specifically here to stop the pipeline that would bring in the oil and contaminate the very important water source, but its turning into something much bigger than that. There have been a lot of prayers that people have held in themselves and their communities, a prayer for transformation, a prayer to come back to sacred indigenous knowledge, to remember how to live in right relationship with ourselves, in right relationship with our sisters and brothers, in right relationship with the Earth, in right relationship with the elements… CONTINUE READING http://tinyurl.com/gl9lf9c

We are at your service and we beg for your forgiveness.” -Wes Clark, Jr.

Over 700 tribes throughout the world come together in peaceful protection of our natural resources. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. I’m so glad to be a part of this historic moment.

But innocent people got hurt for no reason. The sheriff, governor, and DAPL security forces committed genocide against my Native family and your fellow Americans. I will not rest until justice is served. I’m committed to this cause and will do everything in my power to make sure it is served. I’m so blessed to have met the people from Lakota Peoples Law Project when I went to Standing Rock. Danny Sheehan (civil rights attorney), Kelsey Hill (journalist), and Chuck (videographer). I’ve offered my services however I can to help this team get justice.

“Something happened. Something incredible. Something beautiful. It was unintended. It was by accident. But something beautiful happened. Something that no politician has been able to do. Something that no religious leader has been able to do. Something that no diplomat or peace maker or human rights activist or group has been able to do. But in a place, a small place that before now, most people never knew existed. A place called Standing Rock. A group of Indigenous Americans came together.

10-6-16 ~ Josué Rivas Fotographer… For many years I struggled with finding my purpose with photography. Internally I knew my photos were meant to make a change, to share the light I’ve always seen. I tried photographing weddings, concerts, events, etc. I enjoyed all of it, it was a great challenge but for the last few months I’ve come to realize that in fact my instinct was in the right direction. I will be the voice for native America, the platform for our peoples stories, the light in the darkness. The future holds many opportunities for my photos, I can feel it. For now I focus on the present and keep exploring and experiencing these moments. These ceremonies, these songs, these dances. We are still here and we aren’t going anywhere.

Oceti Sakowin ~ Stories from the Frontline ~Dec. 5, 2016

Kristeen Irigoyen_Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Reminding people not everything is bad; stories of truth, of connecting with old friends and making new ones, learning new skills, showing respect and integrity, love, laughter, fun and working together as a community. PLEASE share these stories with you friends and acquaintances; the world needs to know, not only about the atrocities being committed but of the good which has come from the enormity of this stance against evil.

12-4-16 ~ Lee Sprague… Amazing, Incredible. I am smiling so big my ears lobes are wet!

This morning, after our camp meetings I was informed that Veterans, who are arriving in camp in advance of General Wesley Clark’s arrival, recovered our family canoes!!

Elements of our teams assisted the Veterans who conducted an operation through the razor wire to get them.
Even though they are damaged beyond repair, it was good to see them next to the Veterans Tents this beautiful morning.

It was a point of honor for the Veterans to recover our Michigan Canoe, Cold water rescue teams primary vessels.

It hurt to see them behind DAPL oil police and Morton County Sheriff’s razor wire. With them gloating over them. They are home now at Standing Rock, safe, having served our community here and in Michigan well.

I don’t know the whole story yet, I’m looking forward to gifting the veterans for their good deeds, and hearing their stories around our winter camp fires.

I’m really happy, and deeply honored.

12-3-16 ~ Lobo, 60, Retired Police Officer and US Navy, Chicago, IL … “I’m out here because I took an oath to support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies – foreign and domestic – and with me, there’s no expiration date on that. I’m working to attain (man, I’m tired) accountability, justice and peace – and they have to come in that order. None of the banks that caused any of the foreclosures, those guilty of governmental corruption, none of them have been held accountable. It was in 1970 that I joined up with the American Indian Movement and now I’m out here with Veterans for Peace. Right now, there’s no justice and there’s definitely no peace. So the struggle goes on.”

12-3-16 ~ Jon Eagle Sr…. Veterans Stand with Standing Rock. You have no idea how good it felt to walk into this building and be told, “Fall in!” This is just the first arrivals. Warriors from all over America coming to defend and protect the Water Protectors. To stand with the Great Sioux Nation! To uphold the oath of service we took to defend against all enemies foreign and domestic.

“I wish America could be more like the Sioux. I think Creator made them so strong and stubborn because one day they were going to have to stand up for all of us.” – Wes Clarke Jr.

12-3-16 ~ Vanessa Powassin-Beadle… After all this time I finally made my way out to Standing Rock. I wanted to come out there and be able to say I was there and I know what it’s all about. Everyone was so friendly and willing to help. I met people from different parts of the world and it was so amazing. I live on an island surrounded by water so I know how important water is for myself and for the world. I ask people to try to understand why everyone is out there and why they are protecting this cause. I know in the world today we all use oil. And when you say stop driving cars if you are against this. It’s not about that. It’s about taking care of what we have. And it’s not too late to change but we must do it together. Let’s make that change, it’s not too late.

12-2-16 ~ UNIFY… We had the pleasure of meeting Wesley Clark Jr. last night who’s organizing the Veterans coming to Standing Rock. His spirit and power was incredible to witness as he spoke and expressed that he’s here at Standing Rock because it was message from God.

Over 2,500 veterans are arriving here today with the intention to be peaceful, prayerful and of service to the people of Standing Rock. Each of the battalions will be led by Native Veteran Women bringing balance to the masculine and feminine. We’re excited to witness the impact and effect with thousands of veterans coming in a structured way to be of service.

More updates for you soon on the actions the veterans will do during their stay at Standing Rock. We look forward to praying with you tomorrow at 10am CT.

12-2-16 ~ ATXEJ – Austin Environmental Justice Team … Energy Transfer Partners was not too happy this morning when some Texas water protectors built a pipeline in their office hallway. They wanted it dismantled and taken away for some reason. Imagine that…

The pipeline was for the ETP VP of Government Affairs, Grant Ruckel. It reads, “Grant, you can still choose to stand on the side that supports life or you can continue to reap the heavy consequences of supporting an industrial complex of death and destruction. Future generations, especially your childrens, may still one day look back and thank you for having the courage to join the side that supports life. You have a choice.”

ATXEJ Texas Water Protectors contend that the locally-based VP of Government Affairs for ETP, Grant Ruckel, holds considerable responsibility for disrespecting and violating human rights, Indigenous Rights, and governmental processes during the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, Trans Pecos Pipeline, and Comanche Trails Pipeline. Documented failures include:

12-2-16 ~ ‎Adam Elfers‎... Hey. First off. I just want to say…I’m really proud of you guys. All of you. I’m really proud & humbled by my native brothers and sisters who stand on the front lines with such resilience, passion, and courage for their heritage and to protect our planet, who have stood on that line against European assault for over 100 years.

I’m really proud of our allies. The non native people, & those ones that have some native heritage but grew up entirely disconnected from it, like me. I’m proud of you for driving across the country. I’m proud of you for putting everything else in your life, second. I’m proud of you for being quiet and listening to the elders, for letting children, women, and elders eat first. Im proud of you for hanging in there on that fourth round in the sweat lodge. I’m proud of you for standing your ground when the police try to push you around, when they stop your car, or scramble your signal, or point assault weapons at your chest, launching flaming canisters of tear gas and mace into an ocean of innocence here to protect our rivers for an unborn tomorrow–still you stand.

I’m proud of all of you who want to come to Standing Rock but can’t. I’m proud of all of you that have found a new place in your heart, in your soul through this movement.

& last but not least, im especially super tugs-on-heartstrings proud for all of you around the world, taking time out of your day, your own challenging life, to write that letter, to print it off, to walk into your Bank office & ask to speak with a manager, to look that person in the eyes and say…

Why?
At what cost?
I can’t go on with you
My future is not for sale
My native brothers and sisters’ rights are not for sale
Our rivers are not for sale
Our forests & mountains are not for sale
When your investments concern the health of our planet and clean water,
We are all stakeholders
We are all downstream
I’m closing my account today
Because I stand with standing rock
Because water is life;
Mni Wiconi
.
You know, it’s been a long time since I’ve been home, & I’m not even sure what that means anymore, but to you, YOU, all around the world, showing up on the frontlines of your own life, putting your money where your heart is, truly standing with that sacred resilient prayer that is Standing Rock, I just want you to know
That I am so
So So proud
Of YOU.
Mni Wiconi; Water Is Life

12-2-16 ~ ‎Billie Clary‎…So one night at dinner I had an unexpected conversation with a certain elder of camp, who shall remain nameless. This elder explained how his vision for this movement created at Standing Rock, after the black snake is dead, would become a mobile community of activism. Imagine that. Imagine everyone who is and had been to camp and those who support from all over the world joined in the strife and struggles in your community brought on by the injustices and inequities in our government. Local, state and federal levels this is a problem. Imagine this community setting up in your town, on your Frontline, making your problems their problems and standing with you in solidarity. It’s coming my friends and relatives. I believe this to be our future. The prophesy of the Warriors of the Rainbow is happening in front of our eyes, as we speak. It’s powerful. Have a great day warriors!

12-2-16 ~ Adam Schrader…I was super angry after my wrongful arrest on Oct. 27. I can’t express enough gratitude to Ron His Horse Is Thunder for helping me keep a level head in the holding cell and reminding me that I was there to do my job: report on protest actions. This story is all thanks to him. These are my factual observations and my account of what happened during the raid on the front line camp…. I SPENT 36 HOURS IN JAIL WITH STANDING ROCK PROTESTERS… Police in riot gear knocked down and arrested Granny RedFeather less than 10 feet from me. They had already pointed guns, fingers on their triggers, and used ear-piercing sound cannons against protesters, who were prepared with earplugs. Continue Reading http://tinyurl.com/j3xb33x

12-1-16 ~ Ray R Ferrer
I Stand With Standing Rock! … Echoes;
I hear echos at night
off a rock where you stand.
Drumbeats a message
from a far away land.

Riding on a horse
like a breeze on a sail.
Reaching the world
so we can follow her trail.

I close my eyes
the spirits take me home.
Where my brothers and sisters
and the Dakota roam.

I hear echoes in the rain
trying to calm the pain.
It turn’s into a storm
an unbreakable chain.
Echoes of courage

and scars once past.
They just keep returning
assuring freedom laughs last.~RF©

12-1-16 ~ ‎Ray R Ferrer… Shadows;
Are those shadows I see
through my window at night?
Of the brave standing tall
through the moon’s silver light?

I hear the Wolf howl it’s warning

as the Coyote scouts.
The Eagle breathes the air
from the black bears snout.

There’s a river that flows
since the beginning of time.
In danger of toxins,
oils and grime.

The willow still sleeps
because the earth still weeps.
The beauty of nature
Is not only skin deep.

I see sacred lands
destroyed by others.
Spirits cry out
from my sister’s and brothers.

As the night turns to dawn
I see a cloud in the distance.
Of scattering dust
in a race of resistance.

From the land of the free
a white buffalo appears.
She sends you a message
“I’m here….I’m here”.~RF©

12-1-16 ~ Steven Hugs Buscher… There is a shelter setup at the gym in McLaughlin on the Standing Rock reservation on the South Dakota side about 30 min drive from the North Dakota border behind the Family Dollar store. It’s setup for water protectors driving to or from the camps. The gym is heated, has showers, food, plenty of blankets & good vibes.

The roads are super icy. We slid off the road a few times and had to get rescued on the North Dakota side when our van slide into a snow bank. The Chief of Police at Standing Rock did issue an emergency notice not to travel due to weather conditions.
There were about 30 people at the gym in McLaughlin last night. If your traveling this is a safe place.

12-1-16 ~ Lee Sprague… Wow! This is the rubber shotgun slug wound from a week ago, Sunday Nov. 20. I was about twenty feet from the DAPL Police Force who shot me. When I was hit, I ran as fast as I could, not to fast, plus I could not run straight for a few minutes, back out of range from the water cannons. I did not want to fall down and get pelted by water. Ten minutes later, I went right up to the person who shot me. I didn’t want him to think he put me down. Everyone on our canoe rescue team was hurt that night. We had three concussions from flash bang grenades, and rubber bullets. We we’re tear gass’d, pelted with water cannons in sub freezing temperatures, hit with runner shot gun slugs, and pellets, LRAD, or Long range acoustical devices, that are at 162 decibels, and at a frequency that is painful to your ears.

Long night, we pulled many people of the ground with injuries and took them to triage center. I asked, are you wet? Have you been tear gassed, or been shot. Many had two or more injuries. About midnight my fingers stopped working. That she had slowed me down. Since then, we have received better and more protective equipment. Training is difficult and n these conditions, but these are the conditions we face right now. We are not leaving, and are looking forward to General Wesly Clarke and the veterans here Sunday.

Last night about 30 veterans who have arrived when to the front lines about 500 yards from where we are camped. I could here them talking to the DAPL police forces.

Every Veteran who I’ve spoken with feel real good about standing with us here at Standing Rock. Much better than any fighting in the Middle East. Many of the DAPL police force members also are veterans. There is enough humanity in DAPL forces to perhaps be reached to end this violence.

12-1-16 ~ Robert Gallegos… Good morning my Brothers and Sisters . I am a Tribal Member of Isleta Pueblo in New Mexico . I was at Standing Rock a month ago me and my Sisters drove there from New Mexico to donate food clothing and medicine . When we were there we were in prayer we smoked the Chanupa and went down to the water to pray . When I was standing there I heard Natives saying about the whites this and that . I looked around I saw my Brothers and Sisters with white skin ,brown skin ,black skin , yellow ,and red skin . I told my Sister Karen why do they say things about the whites and other races when these people no matter their skin color are here supporting them . These people are not the enemy these people are my Brothers and Sisters . As Brothers and Sisters please stand together quit this prejudice we cant be like the other side that is attacking us . We cant be like them , stop this negativity because of someones skin color . I pray everyday and in sweat for all that are there on the front lines . Stay strong stand as one and please be safe. I honor all of your sacrifice that your making by being there your all thru Warriors.

12-1-16 ~ Anne Burnett‎… Does anyone know the name of the young man whose horse had to be put down due to injuries sustained at Standing Rock? I believe the event was around October 28th. There is a group of us who have a horse – a grey gelding named “Hard Rock” – who wish to make a gift of this horse to the young man who lost his. However, I cannot find a name of the young man or how to reach him.

12-1-16 ~ Julien Jacobs … There is a lot of focus on veterans arriving to standing rock. I’ve been asked to be a coordinator. I do have reserves about taking the position though and contributing even more limited time.

So instead for the meantime here’s some of the thoughts I have from an indigenous veteran perspective

Tribal engagement should be first and foremost, we all can see Standing Rock is a catalyst that brings so many together and our local realities/environments could benefit from this kind of cohesion. At times so many people defer to fixing things in places other than our own communities due to local dysfunction and lack of cohesion. This is important because addressing issues within our own framework vicariously through Oceti Sakowin helps and draws movements of thousands of veterans as a resource that can also be used for back home as after effects or follow up.

2. On perception …How we revere Military members is a social construct. Let me be clear, in order to be a military veteran society has to allow for training and contributing members that voluntarily engage ourselves into sociopathic and psychopathic action. The American Public embraces, celebrates and reinforces it through praise, holidays, parades and association like Honor, Courage and Commitment.

I know that some of the finest servicemen and women do have these valuable attributes such as those marching on Standing Rock and the cost to ourselves and the American public in this process needs to be thought out. Service members through various wars find ourselves with one of the highest suicide rates due to deception and trauma whether delivered or received. We have to acknowledge that the presence of Marines and soldiers is a good thing and we also have to acknowledge our own humanity while we realize how differing missions coalesce and then manifest intentional outcomes. I do wanna stress we need to be recognizing humanity amongst ourselves when those at the Morton County do not. These dialogues with vets will be important. There will also be distinct differences between the burning man crowds and soldiers and although many are “trying” to find themselves whether vet or rainbow it inadvertently puts pressure on indigenous which will be exhausting but needed…… I gotta take a breath…..

3. What binds and can bind us together is collective consciousness, deconstructing colonialism and realizing our best steps are those with armies behind us and that indigenous are the leaders this nation needs at a time like this. So at the helm of all conversations should be what “we” can build while we add troops.

In the meantime inform yourself of the needs of the camp by going to <span style=”color:blue;”> www.ocetisakwincamp.org

If you’d like to contribute financially you can help me with my mission to bring salmon and foods to the protectors by going to http://www.gofundme.com/AlaskansStandingWithStandingRock

And there are several other go fund me’s that have various vital missions. I’ll continue my list later.

11-30-16 ‎Derrick Liner…I feel I need to say something… Please.. Please… Remain peaceful and stay in prayer.. With everything that has happened lately, scare tactics, stopping supplies, roads being closed, the continual violence being committed against the people, and the media blackout…. Yes, it is VERY upsetting.. But you must not get angry and become violent… That is exactly what they want… And since you are remaining peaceful, in turn, they are frustrated.. That’s why they are committing the violent acts against peaceful people.. Yes.. I know… Enough is enough… All these violent acts are opening up old wounds… But the movement must remain peaceful… The warrior is powerful.. For he will fight and die for what he believes.. But the one who comes in peace, love, and prayer, who is willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good, that takes POWER.. SPIRITUAL STRENGTH & POWER… I applaud and look with pride to all of you… Stay the coarse… Sending prayers and love….

Post edited with more info: this was just a small but very inspiring march, the bulk of the veterans are arriving today and into the weekend. I’m out here on assignment with Playboy creating a short documentary.

11-30-16 ~ Antonia Juhasz… I spent the morning walking from Bank of America to Chase to Citibank to Wells Fargo banks in downtown San Francisco today with hundreds of water protectors. Along each stop, people went in and closed their bank accounts in opposition to the banks’ financing of the Dakota Access Pipeline. For one woman, it was the first and only bank account she’d ever had. For another, it was the account handed down to her at her birth by her mother. For another, she’d held it for seventeen years and was now giving up “a lot of perks”. For all, it was very worth it, to join a national #NoDAPL #StandWithStandingRock#Bankexit #NoDaplDayofAction day divesting themselves personally from the banks financing the Dakota Access Pipeline.

11-30-16 ~ Vilencia Leadeanna‎… My name is Vilencia St. John I’m 18 yrs old and a enrolled member at Crow Creek Sioux tribe.

Oceti Sakowin camp became my home when I first arrived there which was September 4th, 2016. Its the first place I ever had the self-confidence to sing in front of everyone. When I’m at the camp I work security in the evening until sunrise or until the afternoon. I also help out up at the donation tent getting things organized for the people who need things & I help cook at my camp.

On October 27th at 4:14pm I was arrested well sitting in a prayer circle with many others. I was beat by 3 male officers with their batons. I then sat in a ditch for couple hours waiting for the officers to get everyone written down and placed on a bus. I was then given a number (197) on my wrist and placed on a bus and transferred to Morton County jail. When I got to Morton County jail I was asked to strip down into 1 layer of clothing and then placed in a dog kennel for couple hours with 30 other women. Well I was in the cages I was cold and was not given a blanket. I was then asked to get on a bus and transferred to Fargo but I got off the bus with 4 other women who had medical reasons with me and placed in a holding cell until I got seen then back in the cells again I was not given proper treatment all they gave me was a orange to eat. Hours passed by and it was midnight then they started taking us female one by one into a room and asked to stip. I was stripped searched by 1 male and 1 female officer. I refused because it was my first time ever being in jail so I was scared . I felt very uncomfortable being stripped searched by a male officer. When I was refusing the female and male officers then forced me to take my clothes off. By that time I was screaming and crying. At one time I was left alone in the room with the male officer and he was saying things to me well I was naked. Then the female came back and told me to put a orange outfit on with black socks and I was place in a cell with many others. I spent the night in Morton County jail and couldn’t sleep because I scared of what just happened to me.

On October 28th at 5pm I was then transferred to Devils Lake which about 3 hours away. When I got to the jail I was searched for any weapons again. After they searched everyone was placed in a cell together and given bologna sandwiches to eat. We then asked if we can make our 1 phone call but was given non. On October 29th at 3pm I then had court through video conferencing with the judge and was told what I was being charged with that day. My bond was placed at 1,500. On October 30th I was then bonded out from jail around midnight by a wounderful woman named Julie from the camp. She told me the camp sent her to bail us out. Well I was in jail I was never read my Rights or given my 1 phone call. But that’s my story of how I treated in Morton County jail.

11-29-16 ~ Sacheen Seitcham… the mythology of the gentle native maidens, with rainbows that form from every foot step is pervasive and colonized as hell. stop spreading this type of misinformation about all of us and acting like it’s “unlady” like to be at the frontlines or out of skirts. we aren’t put on this earth to serve men while they meet or listen while they speak. we aren’t put on this earth to be chastised or scolded when we stand UP and fight back against tyranny colonialism and patriarchy brought by the white man and their church’s. our Women have always been Warriors, our Women have taken heads in battle and put them on spikes, our Women have bathed in the blood of our enemies proudly. when Warrior Women pray we pray for victory by any means necessary not all of us are silver screen ladies in buckskins dripping with soft hearts and feather tears. when I walk thunder and Iightning make the earth quake I am a Queen of War! Indigenous Women are fierce and deadly and don’t ever forget it.

11-28-16 ~ Gwaiina ~ Ancestral Pride… As many strong hearts hold ground at Standing Rock with the arrival of a blizzard, the North Dakota governor issues a statement that the roads, highways into Oceti Sakowin will not be plowed, yet in the same breath makes the statement that Standing Rock camp will face forced evacuation because of concerns of safety.

Standing Rock camp has been issued orders to fall back to the reservation “The Free Speech Zone” The Army Corp of Engineers has stated it will grant Morton county authority to utilize the full extent of the law to remove water protectors. This is the violence of colonialism protecting corporate greed. This is the continuation of of brutalizing Indigenous land & life.

The state, the feds have no authority to grant pipe line pigs jurisdiction. The Treaty of 1851 has been violated over and over by white supremacist amerikkan government. The only authority upon the territory is the Indigenous nation.

Winter is arriving the many strong hearts, water protectors are well, are sheltered are warm are fed, The spirit of resistance is burning strong.

11-28-16 ~ Aaron Dorn‎… Anyone have footage of my assault/arrest on Thanksgiving day in Mandan beside Burger King? Police are holding my truck indefinitely, deny they have my cellphone and wallet. If I have video of them assaulting me and stealing my possessions it will help in court. Also, the ride/caravan into Mandan. Because I passed a patrol car that was trying to break up/slow down the caravan they say I was “recklessly endangering their lives with indifference to life”, which is a felony, and resisting arrest, another felony and misdemeanor obstruction of governmental function. I was making A LOT of supply runs for the construction crews and medics at Rosebud and every time I was followed by patrol cars going to and leaving Bismark. Seems likely they targeted me to take me out of action. I also have medical supplies and construction materials in my truck, along with all my possessions, that they will not release.

UPDATE:
I walked up to the frontline, wearing my ACU top (uniform), with my Sergeant rank, my name tape, U.S.Army and flag. behind me there was hundreds and hundreds of water protectors. I wanted to walk up alone, so I did. As I walked up they begun to take their positions. Some sheriff captain and a few other officers came to greet me. I stood there on top of a barrier concrete divider, looked at all them Police/sheriffs. in front of me Concertina razor wire, around me… burnt ashes and wet abandoned clothes. I said to them

“I am a 10 year, 2x war veteran. I am not a protestor, I am an Ogitchida, I am here to protect these people from you. I am a defender of the constitution. I came to see this for myself. I seen the rubber bullets, I seen the gas, I seen the attack dogs, I seen the water at freezing temperature. I seen the riot gear and the violence inflicted on so many U.S. citizens. I seen how you’ve been mistreating my people. I am the first of many warriors to come.”

Then what looked like to me a thousand water protectors came
Walking up behind me to the front line.

As I stood there on top of the concrete divider with the razor wire, I said
“If you’re going to shoot rubber bullets, shoot them at me, at this uniform.”

The captain and the other officers said to me they appreciated my service, I said

“I wish I could say the same”

11-28-16 ~ Ayşe Gürsöz… 20-year Navy veteran Kash Jackson standing with Standing Rock, and this is why:

“This government and big oil is making money off the exploitation of its citizens. And as citizens we have to stand up and fight against that. And if that cause is a human rights issue or a constitutional infringement issue like what I’ve seen here, where peaceful people are expressing their first amendment rights -that I fought for- and then I see police and private security terrorize them and punish with rubber bullets, pepper spray and bean bags. That’s not what I fought for. My fight is with the people of this country, Native Americans included.

There are 1,500 veterans scheduled to arrive at Standing Rock this upcoming week in solidarity.

11-28-16 ~ Mark Eastburn … My wife and I were honored to be able to serve at Standing Rock for the week after the election. Intending to stay a month, we were called away for a family emergency.

As in any community, there is much to be done. We hauled trash, sorted recycling, helped organize the pantry and got to share our motor home with other volunteers.

This was the first time we have been directly involved in such a noble effort. The work is hard, the wind is cold and nearly ceaseless. I have never felt more alive or closer to the family of man. I am not religious but I pray that I may return to serve.
Please go help if you can.
Send help if you cannot.

11-23-16 ~ Sage Kohen … Greetings from Standing Rock!
I’ve been asked to deliver a message.

(Please take the time to read this message and share it with others!)

A Standing Rock tribal member has been entrusted with a special mission to create a camp that will exemplify the solutions needed to render pipelines, like the proposed DAPL project, obsolete. This project will not fail because its intention is to succeed no matter what-by the very nature of its design-based on traditional principals coupled with culturally sensitive and appropriate technologies.

It has come to the attention of many that in order to truly stop pipeline infrastructure projects, we must reduce our reliance on such technologies that fuel brutal extraction and transportation practices (i.e. the fossil fuel industry) that compromise our precious land, water, air, traditional cultures and future.

The hope of this new camp is to exemplify the best our world has to offer in regenerative design and traditional values. We are hoping to create a hybrid system that honors the past, present and future.

In the coming days we will release more information about this upcoming project and I will be calling out for assistance in very direct and coordinated ways. The core team is aligning and I am honored to serve this very important mission to create a small representation of what is possible for all of us if we dare to dream and exercise our right to create the world of our dreams.

Once we draft this proposal, and have the go-ahead from the elders, we will release it to you for comment and participation.

I am honored to serve the Hunkpapa people (and all people) in this vision to restore balance on earth, for all people and all of our relations.

As an elder instructed me, the Hunkpapa are the head of this movement, and, as allies: we are the body. The Hunkpapa stand to suffer the most should this pipeline go through, as their sacred sites have already been disrespected and their pleas for consultation have been met with political apathy and blatant disregard. I exist in service to this vision of restoration, because our future depends upon compassionate action led by our indigenous elders who’ve been holding this vision through eons of trials so we all may remember how to live and once again return to the sacred hoop in dynamic balance.

Please do not believe all the hype in the media.
The people are strong.
The people are coming together.
If it is divisive: it is not conducive to this movement.
If it sows discord: sing it, pray it, bring it into balance.
If you do not believe or have doubt of the power of this movement: come to Standing Rock and serve the people, the land, the vision.
The best way to help is to physically come here and witness/participate in the truth unfolding with infinite grace and hope.
The black snake wins if we continue to feed it!

We will starve this snake out of existence by the very actions we embody, and this can be done without rubber bullets being fired or tear gas being unleashed…because all we have to do is live our truth and honor the beauty of creation. And stand united.

Stand with Standing Rock!!!!

11-23-16 ~ Hilary Hanson Viral News Editor Huffington Post… Charmian Wright Veterinarian Drives 900 Miles To Help Horses Injured At Standing Rock
When Wright, a veterinarian with 30 years of experience, heard reports of horses getting hurt during protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline, heading out to help was the obvious choice for her. The Standing Rock Sioux and their allies are fighting the construction of the pipeline, saying that it would intrude on Native American land and that a leak would contaminate local sources of fresh water.

“I am passionate about the issues that are being addressed at Standing Rock,” Wright told The Huffington Post. “But when I saw videos of horses being injured, I knew I had to go there.” Continre Reading http://tinyurl.com/gkstedf

11-17-16 ~ Charmian Wright … The last thing I did at Standing Rock, after making sure all the medical stuff was in order, was to participate in the aerial photo of the huge human medicine wheel.

Hundreds of people participated. To get to the site, most walked. But since I was short on time, I hitched a ride with 13 people in the back of a shortbed pickup.

The women in the pickup spontaneously began to sing the Water Song as we drove through camp. It was a poignant farewell for me to get one last good snapshot of camp life.

And now that I am leaving Standing Rock behind, I fight back tears as I watch this video.

So many people have thanked me, calling me a hero, a warrior, an angel. Right now I feel like I am none of these things. Maybe someday I will.

The simple fact is, my heart called. And I listened. And I answered the call. I may not feel like a hero. But one thing is for sure: I listened. I am a Listener. And right now I feel like a damn good one.

There are plenty of heroes in this battle. The brave Spirit Riders. Their fine and fiery horses. All those givers who turned their back on the status quo to reach into their hearts long enough to find love and compassion and vision and glory. And all the camp supporters, who give any way they can. Like Sarah, the medic who is taking a year off medical school to be at Standing Rock because she feels that is where she belongs. Or Dolly, the Lakota woman who left her home to live in a tent on the windy North Dakota prairie simply to cook for the Spirit Riders, every day, day after day, month after month. Her Lakota name is Last Woman Standing. They are all heroes.

And the donors who made my medical work possible…none of this could have been done without them. They are my personal heroes. From a few dollars to thousands, they gave whatever they could. They trusted and they gave. I honor their trust and I am humbled by such generosity. I simply don’t have the words to thank you. But there is one thing I can do.
I can Listen.

11-14-16 ~ Charmian Wright… At Standing Rock, people from very distant places will randomly stop by with moving vans full of treasures. Saddles. Horse feed. Tipi poles. Saddle blankets. Barrels for making wood stoves. Dog food. Water troughs. It is truly extraordinary to be in the midst of such generosity.

Oh, and Daryl Hannah stopped by. I showed her my solar panels when she asked what else the riders needed. She and her beau Neil Young are sending more heavy winter horse blankets. I described to Neil’s manager Steve precisely what the horses needed. He had already dropped off some fence panels for a round pen.

11-14-16 ~ Charmian Wright… At Standing Rock, there’s dogs in the camp too. I was so busy with the horses, I was hoping for some help with the small animals. And she appeared! On a big white horse, no less!

Tracy Hsu lives an hour away from Standing Rock. She comes here every weekend. When helping her with her mare Ashley, it became apparent how competent Tracy was. Some puppies showed up and I asked Tracy to help me with them. She jumped right in. Ha! In some sleight of hand I didn’t even know I possessed, I had Tracy ageeeing to care for some of the camp dogs’ needs after I’m gone. I am confident she will do an outstanding job, and I equipped her with some supplies. I’m looking forward to working with Tracy in the future to help meet the needs of the puppies of Standing Rock.
Please help me if you can in this effort to help our four-legged family at Standing Rock:

If a horse needs intravenous fluid therapy, the medics can help. I am leaving them with 40 liters of fluids, lots of catheters, and multiple IV setups.
Please help support this effort if you can. No amount is too small. Thank you.

11-12-16 ~ Charmian Wright… This 10 year old mustang mare was on her way to the killer auction when she somehow got diverted to Standing Rock. She was perfectly sound and had no physical problems.
Elih had before now been borrowing other horses to go to the front lines in the pipeline protests.
Elih knew nothing about the mare. And yet he worked with her a little, then hopped on bareback. She tried to circle back to the others but he turned her again, getting her lined out.
When I last saw them they were moving into the distance, being swallowed up by the lines of flags and tipis in the camp. The afternoon sunlight braided her tail with little spears of light. She was moving out like a seasoned campaigner who fully trusted her rider’s hand. Was it my imagination when I sensed her relief at her change of fortune?
Elih calls her Last Chance.

11-27-16 ~ Charmian Wright… The last day I was at Standing Rock, we noticed that someone had anonymously left a bundle at the edge of the Crow Creek Spirit Riders’ camp. It was a green horse blanket, worn but in good shape. It had been meticulously mended and was still decorated with some chestnut horsehairs. A typed note with a photo had been carefully tucked into a ziplock bag and bundled with the blanket.

“…this blanket kept my beloved Appaloosa warm through the winters,” the note stated. “I lost her 5 years ago at the age of nine…it’s all I have left of her.”

“She was the bravest, kindest, most loyal mare I’ve ever known…I’ve never seen an animal with such a will to live. I feel that her blanket is infused with her spirit and that maybe some of her fight and determination can help one of your horses during your fight for our water and future.”

“…Parting with this blanket is difficult for me, as I feel I’m giving away the last bit of her I have. But your fight is more important…I’m giving you a piece of my heart.”

I handed the lovingly folded blanket to one of the Spirit Riders. He held the bundle close to his chest and stood quietly for a moment in the November North Dakota sunlight.

11-27-16 … Mike Davis
Dear Brothers & Sisters:
I think now is the time when each of us needs to stop and get ready for what may be our finest hour. There are many, many in camp now, with many more on the way. It has been estimated that over 3000 of my fellow veterans are enroute to offer aid, protection, food, supplies and anything in the way of support they can give. Some will be old, like myself, others young and carry the training of Iraq and Afghanistan warriors. All coming in peace and solidarity.

This will be my second trip to Standing Rock and many of the things I learned from the first trip will be invaluable to me now. I hope to return with a few of my Vietnam Veterans of America local Chapter members from Dallas, either way I am returning. I don’t know quite what to expect regarding the December 5th eviction notice placed on the camp by the Army Corp. of Engineers. To my knowledge, the Corp. doesn’t have an army. With the amount of police agencies pulling the plug on their officers participating at Standing Rock, I can’t fathom the thought of actual military troops being called in. That would definitely be the straw that broke the camel’s back. The entire country would be outraged to the extent it would be a true victory for Standing Rock.

letourvoicesecho-nodapl-teepee-standingrock-ocetisakowin-vets

I still can’t believe there is still a media blackout after all this time. What’s wrong with these organizations, are they that afraid of going against the tide of their owners, I would be finding me a new line of work. When Dec. 5th gets here, it will be very interesting to see what happenstances take place. I know our protectors will do the right thing, to stay in prayer and solidarity and peace . With winter coming on with it’s full force I have seen many new structures going up, I can’t imagine leaving on the 5th nor can anyone else. If you can’t make it to Standing Rock, there are many ways to help. Check out all of the agencies that are aiding the people of Standing Rock. There are a list of them on Facebook that are legitimate or you can find them on the internet. Seek out the ones that are legitimate that can provide you with factual information. They need any financial support you can offer, but don’t forget our Native American representatives that could also use our financial support too.

Don’t forget to keep calling police agencies that are giving support to the “black snake.” These are also listed on Facebook pages that are being posted. Keep calling the White House, your Congressmen and Senators and it couldn’t hurt to call Kelcy Warren’s office in Dallas, Energy Transfer Partners, Ltd. and express your displeasure forcefully, but please don’t make threats. That goes against the peaceful movement of this struggle. So brothers and sisters, keep praying and maintain good thoughts and plenty of love for ALL of our protectors and my prayers are with Sophia Wilanski and her severely injured arm and I hope I spelled her last name correctly. Once again, bless you all and keep the spirit of our “Mother Earth” alive !!!! With Peace and Love We CAN WIN this !!!!

11-27-16 Bill Portman…I wake up to my last full day at camp to my phone vibrating crazily by my side. My last post was approved and notification after notification come in with such positive energy. I read each and every one of them under my sleeping bag as not to wake my tent mates. It fuels and energizes me to start my day. The sun is shining though an opening in the tent. It’s a gorgeous sunny day here at Standing Rock. Many feel our ancestors are sending good weather as appreciation for the work being done. They are with us forever.

I didn’t witness any major protests today, it was quiet. The only sounds today were hammers, generators, drills and many people working as one to build shelters. We helped unload two trucks of materials today with others on the way. I heard one of the drivers tell a story that a hotel would not rent him a room because they were coming to Standing Rock. It saddens me that our fellow “Americans” do not support free speech and protecting water. I refuse to let that get me down. I have work to do. To the wood pile I go. It calls me.

We finished cutting and stacking the wood under sunny warm skies. When I arrive, I’m greeted with familiar and a few fresh faces. Our little lumberjack is present again sporting his axe. This boy sure loves to split wood. He stayed all day and loved to talk with everyone. He made me hopeful for today’s youth. Three young petite Midwestern women are chopping away as well. These were not burly girls but they knew how to swing a log splitter. I joke that they make me look like a whimp. They chuckle until I tell them to get back to chopping because I need more logs to pick up. I am told another truckload comes Saturday morning and I’m saddened because I can’t be here to help.

Later in the day, I hear that law enforcement surrounded Turtle Island with barbed wire, stole our bridge, and damaged our canoes throughout the night. This was in retaliation to a peaceful protest the day before. To this day I have no idea why they want to seize ancestral burial grounds. They stand with their weapons on top of our ancestors grave as we stand united and praying. Get off of our ancestors! This report makes me angry. I’m venting, I’m mad, I’m pissed, I’m everything but calm. I need to peace myself. I don’t want to show disrespect to my elders so I take a walk and try to reflect. I learn later that one of my native brothers snagged the barb wire from the other side of the river and pulled it into the water. I didn’t last long, the enemy fixed it but it gave me hope. I want to thank the warrior brother who I do not know for his bravery. Thank you brother, you have my respect.

During dinner I made it back to the Michigan kitchen. There, we shared soup, rice, and hotdogs. A young blond boy of about the age of four started playing a makeshift drum made from a pickled baloney jar and a milk crate for his seat. He is our young warrior and a future drummer. I tried to get video to share but I wanted to relish the moment while I could. His younger brother came to me as I sat and reached out his hands for me to pick him up. I don’t know this boy, never seen him before. It’s obvious he trusts me. I pick him up and put him on my knee. He says nothing and doesn’t answer my questions but I know what he is saying. We share a moment and then both boys ask me to peel them an orange and I do so happily and proud. My kids are older now and those few moments I had with them made me realize what we are here for. We are here for them. They are our future. We are here to fight for them! I’m filled with such retrospective thoughts on why I came. Thank you boys for reminding me of those reasons.

I hear there is an eviction notice and it terrifies me. I know we will not stand down. My tent mates have told me so and I know our determination. I fear for them. We are on public land held in trust for us but controlled by the Army Corps of Engineers. I still not sure how that works but I’m researching to get the truth. I worry people will be hurt and I am in pain knowing that I cannot be there to help on December 5. I hold onto hope knowing that 1,500 veterans are prepared to stand with us on December 4th. Thank you veterans. You’ve been sworn in to defend against the enemy and we are up against our own country and corporate greed. I know how difficult it is for you.

(Eviction Notice was a hoax)

To help me get through my fears I walk to the sacred fire this evening. It’s late, about 11:30pm. I am greeted by about a hundred or so of my sister’s and brothers listening to native prayer and songs. I’m going to admit something here that embarrasses me. I don’t pray. I don’t know how to. I was not raised in a religious family. I also was not raised in native tradition even though I am one. I need to say a prayer for my family who I will leave behind come tomorrow. A few younger friends I met on this journey come to me and I ask them what to do. They guide thier elder to take cedar, kneel, say my prayer and sprinkle it on the fire, so I do.

I find my place among the fire and I am nervous, my heart pounds faster. It’s a foreign feeling to me but I endure. I pray that we can come to a peaceful resolution. I pray for the safety of my brothers and sisters. I pray for a mild winter, I pray for our youth, I pray for clean water, and I pray that the younger generation of Native Americans can carry on with our beliefs. Finally, I pray for my direct family and to my mother and father who have walked on. I sprinkle the cedar into the fire and I now feel complete. I feel better, I am in peace once again. I have never realized the power of prayer until that moment. I can now rest for the evening. I wipe away a tear and head back to my slumber. Tomorrow I must leave, I must rest now. Goodnight all for tomorrow is another day. My journey home begins.

11-27-16 ~ Cheyenne Tiera …. UPDATE ON OUR VETERANS: now estimated to be over 3,000.
Unarmed and committed to non-violent resistance, they are extremely well organized, will be housed in a gymnasium, and are UNIFIED on behalf of Mother Earth and Water Protectors.
I’m so proud of them, especially my friend Linda who is going up with a group of New Mexico Veterans in just a few days.
Pls send them your prayers. They are expecting to be arrested, shot at, etc.

11-27-16 ~ Dave Archambault II, the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Trib…The way of the Peacemaker, take heed of this critical message: “It’s easy for different environmentalists, different people to come, and they have their own agendas. There’s no way that we can keep everybody focused on the same thing. It’s all about being prayerful and peaceful. It’s not about a confrontation. We started this to protect our water. We were told by our youth, by our elders, and by the spirits that if you fight this with prayer and peace you will defeat it. But if you use violence, natural law’s going to take over and it’s going to go underneath this river, and it’s going to threaten the water.”

11-26-16 ~ Sam Deering… Three years ago I took off my Navy uniform and told myself that I would never put it back on. I decided I wanted to live peacefully, and do what I could to allow the same for those around me. But now the day has come to put that kit back on, and head to Cannonball, North Dakota, and stand between the water protectors and the police, working illegally to protect the Energy Transfer Partners drilling of the Missouri River. Watching events unfold around the Dakota Access Pipeline has been mortifying and humiliating, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t scared.

If it sounds like I’m looking for public approval, or an ego boost, or just a bunch of likes and comments; I am. The notion of putting my uniform back on, just to face off with other uniformed Americans looking to do me harm is honestly terrifying. The actions of the police from around the country who have answered the call of ETP, and other private interests like them, to stop the people from demonstrating or disturbing progress is terrible. But the media and public silence on the gross violation of human rights, treaty rights, and our environment is what truly disturbs me.

I’m going to Cannonball with the group, Veterans Stand for Standing Rock, from December 4-7, and expect to be one of hundreds if not over a thousand veterans coming from all over the country to stand up to these storm trooper cowards. If you’re a veteran, please join us, I don’t have to remind you of the oath we took, and what it means to face a foreign and a domestic enemy. If you’re not a vet, you’re still welcome. Either way, our communities need to be sending more people to North Dakota to resist this blatant insult to a modern world.

If you can’t make it, donate! Veterans Stand for Standing Rock has a gofundme link for those of us vets who are broke but want to help. Also, http://sacredstonecamp.org the camp itself housing a huge group of Native American tribes and other humans from the US and abroad, is in serious need of financial and material assets. You can help. Please help.

“In the end, we will not remember the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

I feel like I should be standing for Standing Rock instead of sitting and just hoping it will get better. It’s time to make a difference. I’m glad we are not alone to fight this battle. We will win!

11-26-16 ~ Marcus Matawhero Lloyd… You don’t stand a chance, against our prayers.
We crossed our hastily made bridge with power, righteous indignation, hurt and retaliation (because of last sundays atrocities) in our hearts and heads….but something happened there. On that island. The Creator tore out our vengence and drowned us with love, united us in prayer and gave us a new sacred native ceremony. A miracle happened on Turtle Island today…the Creator joined our side. The Creator is building a new world and he is visiting at Standing Rock!

11-26-16 ~ Jim Graywolf Petruzzi‎ to Standing Rock Protectors – Pipeline Protest
A few people think they can create their own rules. We are about the group, not any one person in it. This way we respect each other. Thanks, friends.

City of Standing Rock Protectors Support Group

We are now a circle of 98,000 people that grows rapidly each day. This is amazing and powerful with so many caring about Standing Rock and similar efforts everywhere. We are the global support group of Standing Rock – a big responsibility as I see it. Our prayers and support are what the people – and leaders – of the camps asked of us when I was there. This is a peaceful protest and this group must also stay peaceful. And respectful of each other. In fact, we require that.

This huge growth is beautiful but it also means we have much to do as a circle and we, who are admins of the page, also have much to do. None of us has ever seen this sort of growth and interaction by so many. We are 13 people and still it takes a great deal of time and effort each day to bring you the best we can. We make mistakes – allowing some things better not here and deleting others in error. We deal with thousands of submitted posts each day and are human.

We ask your help and share some things we must do. First, follow the posting rules. We share in three areas:
1. Standing Rock Protectors
2. Other similar efforts anywhere in the world
3. Fossil fuel issues

Please help this way:
1. Take a look and if what you want to post is already there, don’t submit it
2. Only post new material – nothing days or weeks old. With so many of us you can bet it was already posted.
3. Don’t post links with no description of what it is. We don’t have the time to check them.
4. If you send personal messages about why something you submitted was not put up, etc., chances are we will not respond. Time again. ☺
5. Remember this is not about any one of us, but rather all of us.

And some things we won’t do:
1. Other posts, no matter how much we may like or support them, we do not post.
2. People selling items, we delete.
3. We post no Anonymous items as requested by camp leadership
4. Post no fundraisers. We have a list of 12-14 in files that we know are valid. If we allowed personal funding posts we would have 5000 wanting to do so.
5. We post no hateful or non-peaceful items – again, as asked by the camps
6. We try to only post the first time something appears – sometimes the same post is put up 10-12 times
7. No politics. Only if a politician does or says something pertinent to the cause.
8. Adding posts to other posts in comments, which are not about the topic, will cause a warning. This is not baseball, so 2 strikes and you are out.
9. Porno, hate messages, and foul, dark rants are a ticket out with no warning.

11-26-16 ~ Redhawk… I spoke to you today at Turtle Hill. I could see you felt uncomfortable standing up there. I could feel you did not want to be on that hill. I spoke to you about Selma, and the civil and human right violation that have stretched from that era to the day upon us now. I spoke to you about my hometown, of Atlanta, GA. I spoke about how those men do not care about you, and about how you were the only minority on that hill. I spoke to you about how Chief Turner in Atlanta is always looking for good officers, and how I assume he would be very proud to have you in the birthplace of civil rights. I told you I would personally fly with you to Atlanta if you contacted the camp and stepped away from Morton County Sheriffs. I watched you sit down, and think. I could see you felt the words I was speaking, and before you stood up and stepped back from the line, I saw you look me directly in the eyes. I saw you, and not a badge.

I keep my promises. Feel free to contact our camp. We love you for who you are. Thank you for listening.

11-25-16 ~ Bill Portman…Last night was cozy warm borougghed in my sleeping bag. My alarm clock was the sound of Native American calls from a nearby camp. What an awesome way to wake up. Kitchen tent was hard at work making us oatmeal to start our day.

At 9:30, all male warriors were called to the bridge. Every male was seen racing to the road. Elders being pushed in wheelchairs and many rode by horse. I didn’t know what to expect. I grabbed my stuff and joined the pursuit. Hundreds of us arrived.

We were met by barricades the government put in to close entry to the other side. Thick concrete walls with spiraled barb wire. Burned vehicles on our barricade side littered the road. I heard they were placed there my law enforcement. Armored vehicles lined the other side. The enemy was dressed in riot gear and cowardly behind shields. We dressed in jeans and coats. It felt eerie, like war, but peaceful and secure as we far outnumbered the enemy. I was with family.

A large circle of people began to take shape as the intent to race there was to start our day in prayer. We held hands and listened to native prayer. We prayed for safety, for mother earth, and peace. Little did I know that there is a special way to hold hands so the energy flows from one to the next. I’ll do better tomorrow, I promise. After prayer a small group of water protectors walked up to the barricades and exchanged words with the enemy. I was nervous but thankfully it was a peaceful exchange.

It was my first daylight trip to check the campground out so I hiked. As I expected, there are thousands of tents and teepees. Wood campfire, sage, and other smells filled the air. I witnessed family’s and friends helping one a other, becoming one. We helped unload a huge truck filled with firewood and another filled with building supplies. I saw a far way protest with security forces at top a hill about 3/4 mile away. That must be turtle island I said to myself. I have to witness it myself.

On my walk to the island, I saw people with gas masks, respirators, cars, medics, protests signs. It’s something I’ve never experienced so close. Hundreds of people aligning the river shore. Police with riot gear and water hoses atop the hill. The police warn us not to cross the river or go up the hill. I’m nervous because I see people being towed across the river in canoes and a walking across a makeshift bridge. At least one hundred of us were on the other side. Our side. Our sacred side where ancestors lie in peace for many years. To keep the water rescuers warm, firewood is being floated to the other side tied together with rope. A fire takes shape and warms the warriors on the other side.

I walk amongst the crowd and see people from all races and all religions come together in ad hoc prayer sessions and chanting of prayers like “You have guns, we have prayer”. Native drum sessions break out in harmony together. I’ve never seen anything like it before in my life. I get overwhelmed with emotions and my eyes swell with tears. I see elders guiding the young. Some elders don’t need to say anything. Their presence is felt. One of my proudest attributes being Native American is how we treat our elders. They are the wisdom that guides us. I saw one elder by a fire in the back of the protest line and I teared up once again.

Thankfully nobody was hurt in this stand off. We stayed at the bottom of the hill and police kept their line. Peaceful, as it should be. On my way back to camp, I took notice of all the license plates. I saw plates from every state and even Canada. Texas, Massachusetts, Wyoming, Colorado, California, Washington, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, Mississippi, Missouri, you name it, a car was there from every state.

In the afternoon we cut firewood. Five people on chain saws and log splitters and five of us stackers. For being voluntary and unorganized, we worked together like a well oiled machine. I think we stacked eight cords of wood. Even a boy about the age of eight helped. His name I forgot but his endurance I’ll never. We even gave him his turn at the axe. I put a red oak on the stump for him and coached him along. He nailed it, he split it. I did my assigned job and picked up his two pieces and told him good job. I told his grandmother how proud I was of him. She was a wood stacker herself.

Afterwards I retreated back to the kitchen and I was met with a suprise turkey dinner with all the fixings. It was a great day, a happy day, a spiritual day. A day to reflect on friends and family and for the rights to clean water. I’m blessed to be able to come and I’m blessed even more to report back to those who could not attend. Spread the word please. Share this post with all your friends. #standingrock #NODAPL.

11-25-16 ~ Livia Grace‎…Thanksgiving was cancelled this year… Instead my family and I dedicated this day to Standing Rock. Our guests were very receptive towards the cause and we felt proud to celebrate both our heritage and show support for the water protectors. A few hours into the evening a neighbor stopped by in his “Stand with Standing Rock” T-shirt. He said he saw our banner and had to stop over to chat. Today I am full of hope and light knowing this fight is shared by so many. MNI WICONI- Stand tall brothers and sisters, we are behind you every step of the way!

11-25-16 ~ Lee Sprague… A Beautiful Day! Our family Canoes died great warriors death today.
In an early morning raid. DAPL police forces, raided our forward staging area for the Michigan Canoe, Cold Water Rescue Team.

The fact that DAPL launched a raid against our rescue equipment, speaks to their effectiveness at Ocheti Sakowin Standing Rock.

letourvoicesecho-nodapl-standingrock-leesprague

Our team, comprised of members from Michigan, Pueblo Camp and many Allies have used these canoes to protect the water, and the Water Protector

These Canoes have harvested wild rice, the food that grows on the water. Many of our peoples have harvested mahnoomin in these canoes.

Many hundreds of people have taken these canoes to and from Turtle Island. We lost some first aid supplies we use to help Water Protectors at the front lines.

Many offers for canoes have come in from the peoples of Standing Rock. We are back in full operation to help rescue those in cold water, or being attacked by DAPL Forces.

It is a great day, to remember all of the love, and heart of all the peoples, who we shared our good lives in our jiimans. Each one of you have brought strength and good thoughts to these canoes.
They have served the people well on Turtle Island.

Yes, today is a beautiful day!

11-23-16 ~ Matt Musselwhite… From Across the Country, Gifts of Tiny Houses Arrive for Standing Rock
How five large trees in remote Oregon ended up as winter housing for water protectors, including their first newborn baby.

Eleven days ago, when Matt Musselwhite pulled into an encampment at Cannon Ball, North Dakota, in a 5-ton flatbed truck, he had no idea how he would unload the three tiny houses he had just hauled 1,500 miles from southwestern Oregon. Almost immediately volunteers emerged from the throngs of mostly Native Americans. Within hours, teams of 10 people were starting to assemble the first of the 144-square-foot wood structures while circulating free food and coffee.

“This feels like a new America I want to be a part of,” said Musselwhite, 41, a carpenter and woodworker based in a rural community tucked into the mountains that cross the Oregon-California border.http://tinyurl.com/zmjhmne

11-23-16 ~ Veterinarian Drives 900 Miles To Help Horses Injured At Standing Rock ~ by Hilary Hanson Viral News Editor Huffington Post
When Wright, a veterinarian with 30 years of experience, heard reports of horses getting hurt during protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline, heading out to help was the obvious choice for her. The Standing Rock Sioux and their allies are fighting the construction of the pipeline, saying that it would intrude on Native American land and that a leak would contaminate local sources of fresh water.

“I am passionate about the issues that are being addressed at Standing Rock,” Wright told The Huffington Post. “But when I saw videos of horses being injured, I knew I had to go there.”

11-22-16 Liz George with Kana Newell )~ I am shaking as I post this. We were eating dinner and on our way out of Mandan when two police officers, the sheriff and one other called us over to talk. We tried to have a polite conversation with them listening to their side and when they didn’t like what we were saying they ordered us to leave the restaurant saying that we had two seconds to leave before we would be arrested. PLEASE WATCH THIS. (Sorry I cannot post the video as it isn’t on You Tube) these are intimidation tactics.

UPDATEny Kana: to what happened tonight: Just so everyone knows, this is what happened previous to this video because we only pulled out a phone when things escalated.

Liz was wearing her WATER IS LIFE badge on her back, clearly visible to everyone. After dinner on our way out the police called us over to talk to us. His first question was ‘how long are you going to be here for?’ to which we replied ‘as long as the pipeline is proceeding’. He immediately replied with ‘well that’s just not going to happen.’ We asked why he thought that, we were genuinely curious to the police perspective and want to bridge the gap between the two sides. Today’s action was brought up as well as last night’s conflict. Things got heated and we asked them to hold space for us to speak, as the conversation was basically his voice speaking over ours. We tried to tell him our perspective but he wasn’t open to listen and ordered us to leave as soon as the conversation wasn’t going his way, threatening to arrest us both for disorderly conduct.

11-22-16 ~ Amanda Kimimila
There’s an army of us.
We come from another place to make waves in this world.
We’ve come to break the mold and the archaic patterns that have so deeply set in and trapped the very men who’ve dug these grooves.
We feel everything.
Every birth.
Every death.
Every laugh.
And every tear.
Every sea creature drowning in oil.
Every tree being poisoned by the rain they’ve manipulated with chemicals and nanotechnology.
The air is full of particulates.
The clouds were once so perfect,
But now they infiltrate us from the inside…
From the outside.
This is a foreign place now.
A once pristine paradise has been violated by resource extraction, careless and wasteful mass production of unnatural pollutants, and geoengineering.
Is it too late to change the tides?
Is it too late to reverse the damage?
If there is any chance at all
The broken system must fall.
There are two cyclical opposing forces that create this realty.
There is the creative force and the destructive.
For change to occur, we have to collectively shift to functioning on a more creative level.
To achieve this we must conquer inertia, apathy and conditioning.
Turn off the TV
Stop participating in the broken system.
Start growing communities based on barter.
Start a community garden and community farm for food.
Food brings people together.
Develop sustainable trade skills.
Share your skills and resources with your barter based community.
Change is possible.

Atrocities at Standing Rock and Police Weaponry

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe
HIGHLIGHTS IN BLUE ARE EMBEDDED LINKS TO NEWS SOURCES. CLICKING OPENS THE SOURCE IN A NEW TAB. 

s13-004
 
Militarized Police beating people with batons; shootings to the face with rubber bullets and bean bags rounds; high voltage stuns guns held directly to Protectors bodies for prolonged periods of time and tasers with electrical pronged hooks incapacitating people; pepper spraying women and Elders; flash bang explosions permanently damaging hearing. Spirit Riders were shot multiple times with rubber bullets from helicopters flying 15 feet over their heads. One 15 yr. old Spirit Rider’s horse killed, shot out from under him. Horse’s intentionally injured by police projectiles at close range, buffalo shot from helicopters and left to die in fields. Tipi’s and tents torn down, clothing and household items seized. Spiritual items lost or stolen; a ceremonial drum appropriated and impounded. Over 400 arrests of peaceful, unarmed people worshiping in prayer circles and sweat lodges with no charges filed and no access to legal counsel; Medics were barred from assisting the wounded and arrested, their medical equipment seized. Journalists taken into custody, their cameras and equipment confiscated. Media blackouts, surveillance devises blocking transmission and reception signals. Protectors were required to remove all of their clothing, bend over or squat, and cough. Searches took place in bathrooms or cells in front of male and female guards then arrestee’s were stuffed into dog kennels, numbers written on forearms keeping Nazi tradition alive. Jailers forced arrestee’s to give DNA samples violating their privacy and constitutional rights. Serious medical conditions like diabetes and severe anxiety went untreated. Guard’s refused to allow phone calls to attorney’s, denied access to the restroom, food, water or blankets which left people hungry, thirsty and without clothing to sleep on frigid concrete floors.

Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier is the official who sets the tone for police actions in Morton County North Dakota. He alone determines how prisoners are treated. He holds the authority to enforce humane treatment or encourage cruelty designed to instill fear, humiliation, embarrassment and shame. AND “shame is the ultimate weapon” utilized by the narcissist in a pitiful attempt to gain control and break the spirit of his victims.

UPDATE 11-2-16 ~ Morton County dumped 4 truckloads of Eagle Feathers, Headdresses, Regalia, Sacred Ceremonial Pipes and personal items on the ground.
Learn why EAGLE FEATHERS ARE SACRED

THE SPIRIT RIDER In the first 15 seconds of the video you can see a spirit rider holding the line, keeping distance between water protectors and police. You will then see the water protector shot off his horse at point blank range with rubber bullets, and then his horse shot at point blank range. The next couple minutes are the commotion afterwards. There was no reason to shoot this brave water protector and his horse, as they were not threatening MCSD or military in any way. See below for screenshots taken from the video.

DAPL will do anything possible including the threat of death and violence to get this pipeline through. DO NOT LET MAINSTREAM MEDIA LIE TO YOU. Protectors are facing the threat of death simply for protecting water and preserving history.

POLICE WEAPONRY
….. Let’s get to know some of the weapons you’re hearing about being used by Morton County Police, DAPL Security and Militarized Law Enforcement. These peace officers “allegedly” possess “non-lethal” weapons which have been brought to Sacred Land and utilized against unarmed Water Protectors. Not all of these armaments were imported, but you should know about them, what they are and how they’re used.

AR-15 SEMI-AUTOMATIC ASSAULT RIFLE is a selective fire rifle with the ability to switch from semi-automatic and fully automatic fire. The AR-15 rifle is a gas powered, semi-automatic rifles which means that one press of the trigger results in one round being fired. The “AR” in AR-15 does not stand for Assault rifle, it stands for “ArmaLite Rifle” after the firm that designed the weapon in the 1950s. A single bullet from a handgun is not likely to be as deadly as one from an AR-15. The bullet from a handgun is slow compared to that from an AR-15. The bullet from an AR-15 does an entirely different kind of violence to the human body. It’s relatively small, but it leaves the muzzle at three times the speed of a handgun bullet. It has so much energy that it can disintegrate three inches of leg bone. These high-velocity bullets can damage flesh inches away from their path, either because they fragment or because they cause something called cavitation, like when you trail your fingers through water, the water ripples and curls. When a high-velocity bullet pierces the body, human tissues ripples as well, but much more violently. The bullet from an AR-15 might miss the femoral artery in the leg, but cavitation may burst the artery anyway, causing death by blood loss.

AGENT PROVOCATEUR aka OUTSIDE AGITATOR’s are persons who commits, or who acts to entice others to commit an illegal or rash act or falsely implicate them in partaking in an illegal act by encouraging people to break the law so they can be arrested. AGENT PROVOCATEUR.aka OUTSIDE AGITATOR’s help to organizes and persuade people to join a protest or political activity and stir up confrontation and urge others to protest or rebel stirring up controversy in order to upset the status quo and further a political, social, or other cause when in fact they actually work for the other side. The “outside agitator” is a reeking of good old boy vigilantism, the commingling of race-baiting and red-baiting

BATON – STRAIGHT STICK BATON is a modern day impact weapon popular with law enforcement departments. A stick of less than arms-length. A baton may be used to strike, jab, block, and aid in the application of arm locks.

BATON – EXTENDABLE BATON smaller, easier to carry and deploy than the straight stick baton, this extendable baton is a working tool for many law enforcement officers. Officers who are trained to carry these tools, must initially be certified, but are seldom retrained often enough, other than the periodic recertification classes required to carry this tool/weapon.

BEAN BAG rounds can severely injure or kill in a wide variety of ways. They have caused at least one death a year since their introduction. A round can hit the chest, break the ribs and send the broken ribs into the heart. A shot to the head can break the nose, crush the larynx or even break the neck or skull of the subject. A strike in the abdominal area can cause internal bleeding or strike the solar plexus which can disrupt breathing or heartbeat. Loaded into 2-gauge shotguns. Designed to incapacitate the target and leave large welts but not penetrate the skin.

CONCUSSION GRENADE or FLASH BANG emits an intensely loud “bang” of 170–180 decibels and a blinding flash of more than one million candela within five feet of initiation, sufficient to cause immediate flash blindness, deafness, tinnitus, and inner ear disturbance. Exposed persons experience disorientation, confusion and loss of coordination and balance. While these effects are all intended to be temporary, there is risk of permanent injury.

CONCUSSION RIFLE is very good at disorienting as the blast sends the target into the air, and the flash momentarily blinds them. Due to the concussion rifle’s ability to send enemies flying into the air, fired a concussive blast at a range of up to less than 100 ft. creating an explosion about 13 ft in diameter, with enough force to send an average human flying a short distance. It also possessed a secondary firing mode, the blast from which was less devastating in terms of radius, but had a greater impact on the target

CONCUSSION WEAPONS cause the bulk of their damage through sheer physical force.

ELECTRIC BULLETS are metal or rubber bullets which release an electrical charge when they hit a target, much like a Taser or other shock weapon.

ELECTRIC SHOCK PRODS are larger baton-style prods similar in basic design to an electric cattle prod. It has a metal end split into two parts electrically insulated from each other, or two thin projecting metal electrodes about 1 in apart.

FACIAL RECOGNITION SYSTEM is a computer application capable of identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source. One of the ways to do this is by comparing selected facial features from the image and a facial database. Facial recognition software can detect faces in images, quantify their features, and then match them against stored templates in a database.

FLASH GRENADE, FLASHBANG or SOUND BOMB allegedly non-lethal explosive device used to temporarily disorient a person’s senses. Designed to produce a blinding flash of light and an intensely loud “bang” of greater than 180 decibels. The flash produced momentarily activates all photoreceptor cells in the eye, making vision impossible for approximately five seconds, until the eye restores itself to its normal, unstimulated state. An afterimage will also be visible for a considerable time, impairing the victim’s ability to aim with precision. The loud blast is meant to cause temporary loss of hearing, and also disturbs the fluid in the ear, causing loss of balance. The concussive blast of the detonation can still injure, and the heat created can ignite flammable materials such as fuel. The fires that occurred during the Iranian Embassy siege in London were caused by stun grenades. On detonation it created a blinding flash equivalent to 300,000 candlepower, activating all of the light-sensitive cells in the eye, and making vision impossible for approximately five seconds. The grenade itself remains intact upon detonation; it is cylindrical, with the light and noise being emitted through holes down the sides, so there is no shrapnel. One problem of the G60 was the danger of the flash setting fire to flammable objects nearby, but this was considered acceptable given its tactical benefits and capabilities.

HAN-BALL™ CS GRENADE is an outdoor use grenade expelling its payload in approximately 15-20 seconds. The rubber ball round has an over all size of 4.8 in. tall, including the fuze head, and 3.1 in. diameter. This launchable grenade holds approximately 1.6 oz. of active agent which is expelled through three ports around the equator of the ball. Due the intense heat generated by this grenade, it should not be used inside a building or near flammable material”

LRAD ~ LONG RANGE ACOUSTIC DEVICE Electronic harassment is the use of electromagnetic emitting dangerously loud, high-pitched frequency waves to harass victims causing intense pain, migraines, and lasting hearing damage. Psychologists have identified evidence of auditory hallucinations, delusional disorders or other mental illnesses in online communities supporting those who claim to be targeted.

LIGHT POLUTION / LIGHT TRESPASS / GLARE LIGHTING is excessive, obtrusive artificial light causing adverse health effects by disrupting the eyes as any night vision built up in the eye rod cells is what is used to see in the dark. Light pollution shuts down night vision capabilities causing temporarily (up to 40 minutes) night blindness impacting us directly with adverse health effects i.e. pain induced by overly bright sources, the sensation of annoyance, discomforting and disabling. Light pollution also affects ecosystems and wastes energy.

M4’S snipers with silenced rifles, armored vehicles equipped with sound cannons, pepper spray, and tazers for unarmed women, children, elders, and men protecting that which gives us all life.

CONTINUOUS DISCHARGE GRENADE CS TEAR GAS CANISTER Designed specifically for outdoor use in crowd control situations, the Riot Control Grenade is a high volume continuous burn canister expelling its payload in approximately 30 – 40 seconds.” The device should be deployed utilizing wind advantage and should not be deployed onto rooftops, in crawl spaces, or indoors due to its fire-producing capability. Hand thrown or launch use only. Launching of grenades will provide deploying officers additional stand-off distances.

PLASTIC BULLETS used by police for riot control. Also used for target practice.

PORTABLE CELL TOWERS mobile cellular site providing temporary network and wireless coverage to locations where cellular coverage is minimal or compromised. Cellular tower equipment and mobile wireless communication machinery include cellular antenna and electronic radio transceiver devices. Customizable Military-Spec portable tower solutions support emergency response, temporary and long-term communications and surveillance.

RUBBER BULLETS allegedly won’t penetrate the skin, but will leave nasty welts that will require medical attention.

SOUND CANNONS LONG-RANGE ACOUSTIC DEVICES are extremely high-power sound waves can disrupt or destroy the eardrums of a target and cause severe pain or disorientation. This is usually sufficient to incapacitate a person. Less powerful sound waves can cause humans to experience nausea or discomfort and to injure, incapacitate, or kill an opponent.

STING BALL 9590 GRENADE Same as the sting ball canister above, but in grenade form. Think of the Pineapple-looking spheroids from World War II newsreels and films they’re normally talking about something called a “fragmentation grenade,” which detonates either when it hits something or after a specified amount of time. These grenades fire out lethal munitions made of metal or wire; they’re designed to kill. Sting-ball grenades — much like the sting-ball canisters above — are basically the same thing, but send out hard rubber instead.

STING BALLS this type of destructive device is not only a firearm but is also an explosive. A sting ball canister alongside the sting balls loaded inside of it by the manufacturer. Much like tear gas canisters, these are also shot out of a riot gun, some release tear gas upon impact along with rubber balls the size of large peas.

STINGER GRENADE is most widely used as a crowd management tool by Law Enforcement and Corrections in indoor and outdoor operations. As a pain compliance, distraction and disorientation device for crowd management, it may be hand thrown or launched in the general direction of the crowd. Can also be deployed for ground bursts or aerial bursts. IMPROPER USE OF THE STINGER GRENADE CAN RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS BODILY INJURY

STUN GRENADES several injuries and deaths have been officially attributed to their use.

STUN GUN are designed to cause pain through the use of high-voltage electricity pulsing between two metal prongs located at the end of the device. Touching the target with the electrified prongs sends electronic current at the point of contact, causing the target to jerk away. Because stun guns require the owner to physically touch someone with the device, they are considered close-proximity weapons.

TACTICAL FOLDER is a folding knife built for action and built to abuse. Most modern “Tactical” knives use a spring metal clip which is mounted directly onto the handle. A single thick blade sometimes featuring aggressive serrations and grips made to fit the hand. The most popular lock type is the liner lock. When folded inside the handle, the blade is surrounded on each side by a metal “liner.” As the blade reaches its open position, one of the liners acts like a leaf spring and jumps into the space in the middle of the handle, holding the blade open until the user pushes it back into place, allowing the blade to fold.

TASER use electricity to disrupt muscle control, but instead of delivering electricity through metal prongs, Tasers shoot two (or more) metal probe darts at the person. The darts, which are connected to the Taser device by wires, attach themselves to the target and send electronic current throughout the target’s body. This causes the person’s muscles to seize up, completely immobilizing him. When fired, Tasers also disperse “confetti”, which contain the Taser’s serial number. Tasers have a range of up to 15 feet, and most models can also be used in close-proximity, as can a typical stun gun. Taser’s shooting out metal darts could cause the heart to stop if they landed on either side of the chest causing the current to pass directly across the heart. The United Nations Committee against Torture reports that the use of Tasers can be a form of torture, due to the acute pain they cause, and warns against the possibility of death in some cases

THERMOGRAPHIC CAMERA (also called an infrared camera or thermal imaging camera) is a device that forms an image using infrared radiation, similar to a common camera that forms an image using visible light. Instead of the 400–700 nanometre range of the visible light camera, infrared cameras operate in wavelengths

THUNDER GENERATOR produces shock waves that result in a loud sonic boom and extreme air pressure, which can be heard and felt by people up to 100 meters away. The Thunder Generator device is a cannon which fires shock waves passing through people and objects. Although the shock waves are allegedly harmless, they give people the impression of standing in front of a firing squad. Maintaining a safe firing distance is important since standing within 30 ft. of the cannon, the shock wave could inflict permanent damage or even kill. The device is intended for longer distances. The company has proposed a multi-barrel design and synchronized networks of multiple cannons to simulate a battlefield experience. The cannons can also be mounted on vehicles and operated via remote control. Plus, by using a curved barrel design, the cannon could produce shock waves at 90-degree angles to bend around walls or other obstacles.

TRIPLE CHASER SEPARATING CANISTER PYROTECHNIC GRENADE DT102 The Triple-Chaser® CS consists of three separate canisters pressed together with separating charges between each. When deployed, the canisters separate and land approximately 20 feet apart allowing increased area coverage in a short period of time. This grenade can be hand thrown or launched from a fired delivery system.” It has an approximate burn time of 20-30 seconds.

VORTEX RING GUN is an experimental non-lethal weapon for crowd control using high-energy vortex rings of gas to knock down people or spray them with marking ink or other chemicals. Typically using acetylene-air or hydrogen–oxygen explosions to create and propel the vortices.

WAX BULLETS can penetrate the skin at close range or if they strike a sensitive body part.

WIRELESS LONG-RANGE ELECTRIC SHOCK WEAPON wireless electro-shock projectile called XREP(eXtended Range Electro-Muscular Projectile), which can be fired from any 12-gauge shotgun. It contains a small high-voltage battery. Its range is 98 ft.

60 CAL. STINGER 37MM BLACK POWDER RUBBER BALL The 60-Cal Stinger is generally deployed in low trajectories or skip fired in the general direction (non-target specific) of the intended targets. Apparently these things can be problematic if the “operator” sets them off at too low a trajectory. It is necessary to keep the trajectory low so the projectile spread will not engage the subject above the breast line.

62-SERIES 59MM GRENADE CS Tear gas canisters, but instead of being launched out of a riot gun, these are thrown like a grenade. CS somehow stands for orthochlorobenzylidene malononitrile. Among the effects (apparently animals were harmed in the testing of this equipment): “examination of rabbits exposed to CS revealed an increase in number of goblet cells in the respiratory tract. More: “experiments in dogs showed that the animals dying as a result of exposure to very high concentrations died from obstruction of the upper respiratory tract.” In humans: “The first symptom is a burning sensation in the throat, developing into pain and extending to the trachea and bronchi. At a later stage a sensation of suffocation may occur, often accompanied by fear.”

7290M MINI FLASH BANG like a grenade, but emitting a bright light (“flash”) and a loud noise (“bang”) instead of something more obviously dangerous. What should I know about them? From the Combined Systems site: “Flash-Bangs are used by special tactical units during hostage rescue and high-risk warrants. It is an ATF controlled Class-C explosive device emiting a bright light and thunderous noise to distract potentially dangerous individuals.” These may sound relatively harmless (pretty close to being actual smoke and mirrors), but they can cause serious harm. Atlanta News: “‘Baby Boo Boo’ spent weeks in a burn unit after a SWAT team’s flash grenade exploded near his face.”
