Water is sacred, it gives life to everything and without water there is no life. Non-violent direct action Water Protectors have tried to stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (aka DAPL), which will traverse four states.

The Water Protectors are concerned oil will leak into the tribe’s water supply. Other tribes and environmental groups are among those who have joined the tribe’s cause and as of Sept. 26, 2016 there are 280 nations and allies with more than 4,000 people making Standing Rock the 15th largest city in No. Dakota, but they need OUR help.

3 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT INDIGENOUS EFFORTS AGAINST THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE

1. It’s Not Political – It’s Life and Death
2. This Is a Women-Led Issue ~ Women are the protectors of water and life
3. Our Movement Is Non-Violent Direct Action ~ No guns. No drugs or alcohol. Protect and care for others in the camp.

POLICE ATROCITIES AT STANDING ROCK:

Militarized Police from 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, tasers with electrical pronged hooks incapacitating people; pepper spraying women and Elders; flash bang explosions permanently damaging hearing. Spirit Riders shot multiple times with rubber bullets at close range and from helicopters flying 15 feet over their heads. 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 then dumped in by the side of the road after having been urinated on. Spiritual items lost or stolen; a ceremonial drum appropriated and impounded?

There have been over 524 felony 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, squat, and cough. Searches took place in bathrooms and 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 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.

DAPL will do anything possible, include 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.

SUPPLY LIST
http://sacredstonecamp.org/supply-list/
For the purpose of warmth, food, shelter, education, sustenance, and health.

DAILY LIVING

Originally fully self-supporting, the camps with large numbers of people arriving daily have increased the need for supplies essential in accommodating everyone. Presently there are 670 plus people to feed requiring trips to the market every 2 days, approximating $4,000 per trip. Thanks to gifts and donations the camp has also been able to provide blankets, sleeping bags, jackets, thermal wear, socks, hats and gloves, tiny houses, tepees, yurts, a medical area, a storage area, composting toilets and waste management services, generators powered by solar panels and wind, all due to the generosity of supporters… Although so many have been generous, our fight is not over and every little bit helps! Please find it in your heart to continue supporting those fighting for us all.

Urgent Medic Supply List:
Enter medichealercouncil@gmail.com for the recipient email.

This list does not direct things to The Mni Wiconi clinic nor does it reflect the supply lines of Red Warrior Camp medical. Please find their info on their sites. We function as the central coordination unit between all the medic and healer spaces (who we know of) at all the various locations at camp.

We’ve refrained from posting any supply lists or funding streams yet because we wanted to make sure we knew exactly what our medics and healers were in need of, on the ground, at this moment.

Here is our medical supply list that is top priority. It’s a short, but extremely important list. Please consider helping us (those who need urgent medical care) either financially or by sharing this list widely.

We do not need painkillers (advil, tylenol, etc) at this moment, so please refrain from sending those, as to not burdening our medics with more logistics and sorting 🙂

Note: We are also requesting Amazon eGift cards which we will use to purchase items as needed. On the list, it shows only a $100 option; however, if you click “See all buying options” it allows purchase of smaller amount eGift cards.

THREE REASONS WHY WE DESPERATELY NEED YOUR SUPPORT:

1) Standing Rock EMS had to pull their operations at camp, partially because they are inundated with the regular calls from the rest of the reservation and could not allocate their resources to our camp (read about the historical/social reasons why public health is highly understaffed and underfunded on reservations for more info).

2) The ND state government is basically taking an apathetic at best and hostile at worst attitude towards the wellbeing of those at the camps: (pulling WASH stations the same day that they declared a formal “state of emergency”)

3) The nearest ambulance service outside the reservation (Bismarck-Metro) has a response time averaging about 45 minutes. That’s an eternity when someone is in need of life-saving care; which means that we, as good samaritan medics & healers, are effectively the only first responders here. We’ve come from all over the world, including from Standing Rock itself and are here first and foremost for the people and their wellbeing.

We love all of you supporters from afar and thank you greatly for your support.

Thank you ALL Warriors Standing in Unison to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. Thank you videographers, photographers, journalists, scribes, Penny Hartsell, Rudy TwoMoon and Lee Burkett for their truth, Diana Heideman for her captions and the unknown artists for their artwork letourvoicesecho-standingrock-nodapl_1

The comparison between Standing Rock and the 1965 “Bloody Sunday” when Alabama State Trooper’s unleashed tear gas and attack dogs on Black Voting Rights Activists marching from Selma to Montgomery.

Penny Hartsell ~ “Without water we can not exist. Water and culture are strongly interlinked. Water is a vital source of life, and culture greatly determines a person’s ‘way of life’. This includes the way people manage their water resources, having adapted themselves to the environment in which they live. For centuries sustainable water management has been daily practice in many cultures, resulting in a delicate balance between water resources and human society. Water has played a more or less prominent role in cultures, depending on the environmental conditions people had to face. Indigenous cultures are still renowned for their ingenious and sustainable water practices. Modern practices have often disturbed and overruled these traditional practices, with undesired consequences. However, in today’s societies we often see a revival of old traditions and a more natural and sustainable use of water. Finding the right mix between ‘old’ and ‘modern’ practices helps to find new sustainable solutions. Life came from the oceans, and the oceans have sustained life as we know it for over two billion years. Whether they continue to nurture us, and how long, depends on how responsibly humans can respond to the challenges of a threatened marine environment and an inescapably warming global climate. It is a privilege to be on this Earth. This is a unique and highly potent place of learning, beauty and revelation. Those that recognize that are intelligent human beings. Those who don’t, are imbalanced, egocentric, sleeping children. I don’t care how old they look, how well dressed they are, how many letters they may have after their names or how accomplished they think they are. The true sign of the most refined level of intelligence, is how one treats this planet, and the precious life upon it. That is the truth.”

letourvoicesecho-standingrock-nodapl_61

RESIST THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE ~ THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES TO OIL AND GAS. THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE TO WATER.
The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), owned by Houston, Texas based corporation called Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. which created the subsidary Dakota Access LLC. The DAPL, also known as the Bakken Pipeline, is proposed to transport 450,000 barrels of crude oil per day (which is fracked and highy volatile) from the Bakken fields of North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois. Dakota Access has failed to consult with tribes and conduct a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

In early August Canadian pipeline giant Enbridge announced that, along with Marathon Petroleum, it will make a significant investment in the Bakken Pipeline System, including the controversial Dakota Access pipeline. As part of their statement, Enbridge also noted that, “Upon successful closing of the transaction, EEP and Marathon Petroleum plan to terminate their transportation services and joint venture agreements for the Sandpiper Pipeline Project.”

We know that this influx of resources from Enbridge will only speed up the construction process. We know that any day now construction will begin and we will only have 48 hours notice to respond. Please fill out this form if you stand with standing stone camp and are able to risk arrest or play support roles in direct actions.

WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS PIPELINE TO CROSS OUR LAND, WATER, AND SACRED SITES.
“The dangers imposed by the greed of big oil on the people who live along the Missouri river is astounding. When this proposed pipeline breaks, as the vast majority of pipelines do, over half of the drinking water in South Dakota will be affected… It must be stopped. The people of the four bands of Cheyenne River stand with our sister nation in this fight as we are calling on all the Oceti Sakowin or Seven Council Fires to do so with our allies, both native and non native in opposing this pipeline.” ~ Joye Braun (Cheyenne River)

ANIMALS 24-7 on September 7,  2016 received an anonymous tip that “Ashley Nicole Welch is a dispatcher for the Solon Police Department in Solon, OH.  She finished up the Police Academy and is actively if not already has an offer to work for one of our police stations in the Ohio area.” Available public records indicate that an Ashley Welch,  whose photo indicates that she is the Ashley Nicole Welch photographed at Standing Rock on September 3,  2016,  was a Solon police dispatcher from mid-2012 until at least mid-2015,  and in April 2013 was honored for helping to save a life on November 11,  2012,  acting in her capacity as dispatcher.  

As of 6:00 p.m. PST,  however,  ANIMALS 24-7 had not yet found anything associating Ashley Nicole Welch with the Solon police following a mention in Solon Civil Service Commission records of a “Memo dated August 10, 2015 from Chief [Christopher] Viland to Dispatcher Ashley Welch regarding Departmental Charges.”

The state of Ohio requires that anyone furnishing for hire guard dogs in connection with the protection of persons or property be licensed through the state and that failure to do so is a misdemeanor crime for first offense and a felony for any subsequent offenses. “The names Bob Frost, Frost Kennels, and Ashley Welch are not found in the public data base of those licensed in Ohio to furnish for hire guard dogs in connection with the protection of persons or property. “In order to travel to North Dakota to provide those services, said guard dogs would have to have been trained in Ohio,  and the agreement for services as well as payment be processed in Ohio.  This gives the state of Ohio jurisdiction in determining if Frost Kennels,  Bob Frost,  or Ashley Welch violated the law.  A complaint will be filed with the Ohio Department of Public Safety alleging a violation of Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 4749,”  Joyce promised.

Dogs were hauled to the Dakota Access location by a red truck with an Ohio plate: GTK 5721, clearly captured in photos from the scene and identified as identical to the one used by Frost Kennels, and depicted by the company on its own website, for hauling security dogs.letourvoicesecho-nodapl-standingrocksioux_3

Rudy TwoMoon ~ Creator, guide us and allow us the power to accept these prayers for peace. May we as the people, be strong enough to fight our instincts, bring healing back to ourselves for the future of all generations. May our actions be like those we protect. May we be a reflection of balance. We ask you this so we may bring peace, compassion and abundance through choice of our desire to being whole. We ask you to help us find the balance of choice so we may take responsibility for actions. We pray for those who wish to do us harm and they see our prayers are for their healing. May our enemies see we are not enemies, but living breathing souls who wish to stand shoulder to shoulder as sisters and brothers upon this great mother. These are my words, I have spoken.
Aho!

Today I heard the ancestors. They are here giving power to the protectors.
Aho!

Rudy TwoMoon ~ Let’s be cautious about celebrating this. On one hand it seems clear that our pressure is having an effect. Let’s keep it up.

But we have seen time and time again a consistent strategy from the State in these situations: string out the process, break it to us gradually to avoid a big confrontation, present the illusion of careful thoughtful review of the case, tempt us with promises of modest reforms…but then in the end make the same decision that serves money not people. So far this is just talk, not actions, and actions are all we should care about.

Stop the pipeline, and then we’ll celebrate.

We are not leaving until this is over.

UPDATE: The tribe immediately filed an “injunction pending appeal” in US District Court. The company filed a response opposing the appeal, and then the Army Corps filed a response also opposing the appeal. It is almost certain the Judge will not change his decision, this is just a formality. Next step is the tribe will appeal at the US Court of Appeals next week.

As we understand it, there is NOTHING legally binding in the DOJ’s joint statement. Again, not a victory yet.

James Emanuel “Jeb” Boasberg (born February 20, 1963) is a District Judge on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, also serving as a Judge on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court; and former associate judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Boasberg received an A.B. from Yale University in 1985, where he was a member of Skull and Bones, and a Master of Studies the following year from Oxford University. Skull and Bones is exclusively limited to White Protestant males who in 1918, headed by Prescott Bush’s brother Jonathan Bush, Grandfather of President George H.W. Bush, along with five other officers’ dug up Geronimo’s body and placed it in the Skull and Bone’s Cult Museum.

The United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC, also called the FISA Court) is a U.S. federal court established and authorized under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the United States by federal law inside the United States by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies. Such requests are made most often by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Congress created FISA and its court as a result of the recommendations by the U.S. Senate’s Church Committee. Its powers have evolved and expanded to the point that it has been called “almost a parallel Supreme Court.”

Penny Hartsell ~ Water is the world’s most critical resource. It sustains life, and thus the global food chain. It powers industrial production, and thus the global economy. Freshwater is perhaps the most important natural resource for human survival. Did you know that it is also highly limited and currently under severe distress? Native traditional knowledge includes knowing a place. It covers knowledge of the environment, such as rain, snow, ice, weather resources, plants and animals, and the relationship between all these things. Traditional knowledge is partly a holistic way of looking at the world and partly looking at life with a deep spiritual respect for all things. For example, traditional knowledge explains in story form how and why water is important to all that share life on this planet. By “all” means plants, animals, clouds, sky, fish, birds, rocks, and water. Water in some Native communities is so important that it is considered sacred medicine. Many Native ceremonies begin and end with a prayer of water. Water is an important gift for all. If water were observed as sacred, then perhaps it will be taken care of and viewed in a different light than it is today by most people that live on Mother Earth. This planet’s water is a sacred gift that much too often is taken for granted. Respect and a deeper understanding of what the gift of water is really about needs to be of greater importance throughout society. Fortunately, many individuals, groups and businesses are responding to this water challenge and are working together to reduce the pressure on water resources, and encourage sustainable water stewardship. Whether water is a core ingredient or plays a supporting role in producing a final product, it is vital to the operation and growth of almost every business. So when water is scarce, not replenished at the same rate it is used, or otherwise inaccessible due to pollution or quality issues, the effects of local water scarcity have ramifications on a much larger scale. We know today that most of our problems with water are multidimensional and that neither science alone nor Native traditional knowledge alone can solve these problems. The solutions to our water problems involve not only scientific and technological solutions but also changing attitudes and actions so that people learn to regard our natural resources with respect. This way of knowing and teaching could help us change attitudes in regards to not only respect for water, but life respect on this planet. In learning about how to blend good science of water with traditional knowledge in a more balanced way, we are all learning about compassion – compassion for each other and compassion about how and why to use our knowledge. #MotherHemp

Inmate Letter

How long has it been since you received a hand-written letter in the mail? Remember how it feels to read words chosen carefully by someone who believes you’re worth the time it took to share their thoughts; someone thinking of you with every loop in each letter, offering glimpses into what they held important. Words of encouragement, perhaps inspiring or something to make you laugh. Words touch like nothing else can.

Remember how you found one of their letters waiting in the mailbox, you couldn’t wait to tear open the envelope and read what they had written. Maybe you’d read the letter as fast as you could, hitting all the main points, gathering the gist of how life was going for them since your last correspondence. Then you’d read the letter again, this time very slowly, taking in every detail they shared.

You can have that again by making a positive difference in the life of an incarcerated person. You have the power to transcend the prison walls, to promote rehabilitation, to restore dignity, and to champion human rights. Mail call is often the darkest hour of the day because many of these people are forgotten. Daily they are reminded that contact with the outside world is a privilege they no longer enjoy, a privilege many acknowledge they were responsible for losing. Receiving mail can lift their spirits and give them hope. Some will never live outside of prison walls again. Others are serving shorter sentences, hoping that good behavior and a desire to live a better life will lead to their release and a productive life. These are human beings. You must ask yourself this: Could you, or someone you love, have been sent to prison for some offense you committed but later regretted?

Written letters can be reminders of an inmate’s connection to the outside world and Inmate PenPals @ Let Our Voices Echo is designed to quickly and easily connect you with inmates whose backgrounds and interests may inspire you to pick up a pen and become pen pals with them. All of the inmates listed enjoy getting letters; especially those letters which help build their confidence. It can be a lot of fun communicating. Whether you’re trying to cultivate a little romance, nurture a friendship or simply stay connected we ask that you treat these inmates with dignity and respect. They have their own interests, hopes, and dreams. Most of them want to turn their lives around and be more successful when they return to regular life. Let’s give them a reason to hope for a better future.

Before I was Me

Authored by Rudy TwoMoon
Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Warning
 
RudyDeuceTruth questions “before I was me” and journeys through DNA and our shared humanity.

The so called illegals have more rights to this land than many of the occupiers of today. We are Indigenous. The border crossed us, not the other way around. Before California became a state, we people were called Indians, then the land became the property of the USA, the people were then called Mexican. I’m Yaqui, Mescalero, Aztec, Mayan, Spanish, Scottish, and Basque . I may also carry African blood. I have ancestors on both sides of this invisible line. We traveled all the way up to Canada down to deep Mexico. Half of us got stuck wherever we were when that line was drawn. Some of my lineage fought with Poncho Villa and some fought against. I am history. I carry the stories in my DNA. I am from all over this great planet. Like everyone, I am the ancients.

Before I was me, I lived with lions and danced their songs. I was captured and shipped from Africa as a slave. Was bred with the Spanish and natives into a culture now called illegal.

Before I was me, I walked these sacred lands right here with the mammoth and traded sacred foods and medicines.

Before I was me, I traveled great distances on great ships, fought against the British crown and danced my pagan ritual.

Before I was me, I traveled from Basque to the Mexican pyramids and met the other parts of me. At some point generations later, we became what I am today.

I am a human, a creature from the stars. I contain the sun. I am the water. I am mud. My movements tell the ancient tale of my existence. My stillness echoes it. My children contain the secrets of their mother’s journey of then and now.

Our children are our ancestors.
