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

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 ~ 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.

1-1-17 ~ Jim Graywolf Petruzzi… If Not a War, What is It?

I had a good friend ask me last night why I use the word ‘war’ when I speak of the events going on around us and the actions we take as we seek a better, healthier place to live. This is someone I know and respect, so I reflected on the question. It is a good question – a valid one. ‘War’ can be a charged word – a word with negative connotations. We chatted a while over this question and then I went to smudge and send my prayers and wishes to Great Spirit.

This morning the question is still with me. I realized 2 days ago I wrote a poem – I Am A Warrior. I post it here since it relates to this discussion. No coincidences my friends. So, I am going to capture my views on this – at least those I currently see – and I invite yours.
I Am A Warrior

I stand up for what I see needs to be changed,
But I do not hate those who disagree.
I speak with conviction about the healing we need,
But I listen to others speak in contrary ways.

For years I have fought for peace and equality,
But I no longer throw rocks – I send prayers.
Those who disagree with me sometimes hate me,
I will not hate back.

Those wishing to silence me will do whatever they can to still my voice.
But I will not be silent – I will speak peacefully, without stop.
When those destroying our planet attack my friends.
I will stand beside them and will not move.

There is a war being waged now for our planet and our lives.
They fight with bullets and hoses and corrupt laws.
I fight with words and love and trust.
So that we will reach our true potential as humans.

They are haters.
I am a warrior.
A spiritual warrior. A peaceful warrior.
I fight in peace with those ready to stand with me.

We are warriors.
~ Jim Graywolf Petruzzi

Here is some of what I responded to the question:
It is a war – a peaceful revolution. But I don’t want people thinking we can just pray and all will be good. Creator wants to see actions, which he/she can then put energy towards. Likewise the ancestors – angels, prophets, whatever name – do nothing until we pray, act and ask for help and guidance.

I was taught this by many different cultures and have seen it hold true. War does not have to be negative nor have only negative connotations. This definition for example – “a struggle or competition between opposing forces or for a particular end”

What other word will stir people awake? The conflict within self of the light and dark wolf is also called the war of the self.

We have envisioned the world of good – the light wolf. Still we need to feed that wolf so the dark wolf, who has been dominant for so long, becomes the lesser part of us.

Thanks for bringing back these teachings to me and reminding me of those who shared them with me long ago.

When I do ceremonies, teachings, sound healing, spiritual work I exist in a place of light – all light. When I am in a spiritual activist role I am helping move us to the light. Part is by recognizing the dark and the struggle we now have.

Standing Rock is a great example. Many of the elders and leaders speak of this battle in a larger war. The war is Water is Life. Then they go on to speak as I am – this is a new war and we are peaceful warriors.

When I work with and speak to children my whole energy and word use shifts. Not younger or less mature – more light. They do not need to be awakened and motivated. They are.

Some images need to be before us so we can make the changes needed.
Here are two others that give me pause:
* Cutting the head off of the black snake
* Letting the Phoenix die so she can rise

Based on the wishes of the elders and leaders at Standing Rock and elsewhere for peaceful protests I think we should discuss the use of our words as well as our actions. If there is a better word to guide us – let’s find it.

Thanks for hearing me.

1-1-17~ Robert Ferguson... Paid Water Protectors. Did you know in almost every town there are people paid to protect your drinking water? They work at the places that draw water from either the ground or a surface source and then filter the water to make sure it is drinkable. Then there are a multitude of other government employees who work as environmentalists to ensure the surface and groundwaters do not become too polluted. In most cases these employees do a good job. Not so much in Flint or Corpus Christi. … Anyway, for most of the time these water protectors are left alone to do their jobs without much fanfare. But on occasion they find problems that lead back to some industry saving money by allowing pollution to enter the environment, and then their bosses can get real ugly. It pays to learn who in your area is a paid water protector and let them know you appreciate their efforts and are willing to Stand with them when they feel the need to expose pollution or even potential pollution. They will thank you and the water you save together might be your own.

12-31-16 ~ Penny Fruth…. I leave my basement door open as shelter for animals who might need it. This morning, before sunrise, I heard a hen sing out her death cry and ran downstairs. I saw the hen, still squatted down, waiting for the next blow. I looked and saw a large owl. I spoke calmly to the owl and tried to herd it toward the open door where there was only darkness. The owl wanted to go toward the light and kept crashing into walls. Finally, after much reassurance, the owl flew into the darkness and found the wind that lifted him up.

The owl is a powerful symbol that relates to the Water Protectors and the Seventh Generation. It is a strong symbol of transformation that often comes through darkness, not light. Just as the owl preferred the light, but finally realized he needed to go to the dark; the Water Protectors’ bravery and endurance have led them to go into the dark, with no assurance of success. Through their courage and perseverance, they are bringing light to the darkness and I am grateful. Thank you.

12-31-16 ~ Daphne Singingtree… Long post about the current controversy about Standing Rock funding including the tribe’s decision to use some of the donated funds to address deficits from impact of the legal and logistical issues around the protest.

How we share resources is our biggest challenge today. The cause of most wars, our fight for clean water, protection of the earth, is all about those who wish a bigger piece of pie for themselves, sometimes the whole pie. In traditional indigenous cultures a core value is taking care of those in need. Those who have more, share, and it lifts everyone. Simple concept, but one we have gotten away from as modern life and the culture of self has supplanted the idea of care of others. The future is endangered by the 1% who use their wealth as power to produce more wealth at the expense of water and the earth and those who live upon her. It is the heart of colonialism. Money is power, and as the NoDAPL movement grows economic pressures are going to be essential to long term victory.

Standing Rock donations have come in from around the world providing vital support we would not be able to function without. However, as a movement, we are still in a gestational stage, working without traditional leadership, developing organically, and a source of pain as we labor right now revolves about money, donations, and how resources are allocated. We are trying to figure out a way to do things differently, that is more inclusive, less hierarchical, less based on colonial models.

At Standing Rock we are a microcosm of society as a whole, and as such are facing avarice, selfishness, egos, and competing agendas. There has been misuse of donated funds, I know people who raised money specifically for the Wellness space at Rosebud and not one dime reached us. There has been theft and resources not used or ruined because of a lack of organization and proper stewardship. But there also has been tremendous generosity, not only from those donating money or supplies, but those giving their time to do fundraisers and organize political events at home, and those who work so incredibly hard at camp. I have seen so many people give up well-paying jobs, put school and their lives on hold, all for Standing Rock. It gets into your soul and becomes the only thing that matters. I get it, I have a small business before Standing Rock making and selling herbal products. After I was gone months, had to lay off my part time staff, and no longer have the time to make products, and truthfully making and selling stuff is not how I want to spend my time, as my work with Standing Rock is so much more important to my grandchildren’s future.

I was a part of the Occupy Movement and see so many similarities with the early support and enthusiasm, then personalities, egos, lack of leadership and focus, the movement crumbled as much from within as from without. I was a midwife for 30 years, my role was support the natural birth process, yet be aware in case intervention was needed. Sometime intervention is simple sometimes complicated, but if not done in time, consequences can be devastating. As one of the many midwives helping birth this movement that started with Standing Rock, I am listening to the heartbeat with concern. While I am concerned about the misuse or theft of funds, I believe a greater threat is the infighting about it. The finger pointing, the accusations, the negativity, the divisiveness can sweep up good people as well as the bad. I have seen from personal experience how unfounded accusations, haters and Internet trolls can destroy someone’s life and important work. Transparency and accountability is important. We can make a full accounting with receipts for all the funds donated to either my Gofundme page or to Zaniyan.org, and will continue to do that. The Medic and Healer Council is in the process of organizing a separate nonprofit which will do the same.

While people are still braving the weather and a protest camp will remain at Standing Rock until the pipeline is gone for good, longer term sustainable community projects, including an integrative health clinic, a birth center, are all in the planning stages, and can result from some of the positive energy generated for this cause. We still need support and help from the global community to fight the black snake and protect the water for all of us. The Standing Rock tribe has incurred a lot of expenses and losses from this protest, monies donated will not go to any one person or family, and that is more than I can say for a lot of other fundraising efforts.

I see one of the biggest needs right now in terms of funding is paying the fines and legal fees of arrested water protectors. While there are specific camp needs such as firewood and propane we are still working on, we are now looking other protest camps in Texas, Cheyenne River, British Columbia, & Florida. At both the Medic Healer Council and Zaniyan, we are looking at how to allocate resources to best serve the most people.

Standing Rock needs continued support as well as a healthy discussion of donated funds and how best to use them. What we don’t need is people from outside, who do not know all the facts or whole picture making judgments or accusations that can result in funding being pulled entirely. Facebook is powerful weapon, use it responsibly. Let’s focus on what is needed, where, how it is best used, and how to have transparency. #nodapl#waterislife #divestbank

letourvoicesecho-nodapl-standingrock-redfawn

12-31-16… Red Fawn is a Lakota from Denver, Colorado, who had been one of the water protectors. The 37 year old was known by many of the younger protectors as mom. She was always checking on people to make sure they had everything they needed. Her mother had been at the Wounded Knee occupation in the seventies, and sadly just recently passed away. One day a young girls hand was broken by a Morton County cop, and Red Fawn was right there to get her out of harm’s way. Later the cops grabbed Red Fawn who was walking away from the front line and threw her to the ground on her face. Three cops had their knees in her back and on her legs. Suddenly shots were fired. They claimed Red Fawn had a gun hidden behind her back, pulling it out and fired shots. But there is video that clearly shows they had her face down on the ground, not on her back so the cops were lying. They tried to charge her with attempted murder. Now how could a small woman with three cops on top of her pull out this mysterious gun and get off three shot ? After being held in jail without bail, Monday a Judge stated that the murder charges were dropped, but now she’s charged with concealing a weapon. Those lying cops knew that these false charges would never hold up in court. If she had really done it there is no way in hell they would drop those charges. They also never did a test to prove she had fired a weapon, because they already knew she hadn’t. So now the cops are going to ruin her life with a lie about a concealed handgun. Prayers for you Red Fawn, you are a true warrior and hero, unlike those lying cops in the Morton County Sheriff’s department. PEACE & BLESSINGS DOC

12-30-16 ~ Jim Graywolf Petruzzi… Thanks for an Amazing Year of Support and Action.
It is time to share energy and give thanks. So I am saying thanks for all the support you have each given Standing Rock and all Water is Life movement protests everywhere. The heroes of Standing Rock have done amazing things and spiritually and morally led us all. Their place in history as energizing movements to save our planet is set. We all thank and honor them – and continue to support what they are still doing.

That said, each of you now look in a mirror, smile and say wopila – many thanks – to the one you see there. To yourself. Early on we were asked to spread the word about the efforts at Standing Rock and we answered that call. As we still are. Without the virtual effort to bring Standing Rock to the masses, I fear they would have been stopped long ago. This effort takes us all – those at Standing Rock and those virtually around the world.

So many have taken the Standing Rock example to heart and begun their own protests around the U.S. and the world. To them I also say thank you. I am working with a group we created here in Colorado to stand against fracking and save our water. I hope many more of you find local groups as well.

As is the way on my spiritual path as taught to me by Two Bears and my other elders, I also thank those at Standing Rock and those in these virtual communities for all they will be doing in 2017. I see it already – and it is beautiful to behold. Watching the four colors of prophecy come together. I have no words. I thank you for taking this movement to the next level. I thank you for your continued peaceful revolution. And I thank you for the seven generations who cannot yet speak – but are watching us all.

2017 is the year we must work even harder to connect ALL the Water is Life efforts. Even if we are swamped with our local protests, we must allow some time for the council of protests to form. To truly win this war I know this is so. I ask those at Standing Rock to also play a leadership role in this. I look forward to returning to Standing Rock to embrace my friends and relatives there with my thanks again. And I also thank you, here, for your leadership. Mni Waconi – water IS life… the Movement.

This thank you comes from deep in my heart and spirit. It is an honor to walk with you all. And I know the other admins feel the same way. I invite them to comment here if they wish.

I tap into my Mayan relatives teachings with a reminder as I end this: In Lak’ech Ala K’in – I am you and you are me. This has never been so true.

12-30-16 ~ Jim Petoskey‎… I was in the Marines for 9 years. I was stationed at Camp Lejuene, NC for 8 years and every Marine since 1959 has been drinking benzine, TCE, PCB and other chemicals from the contaminated wells. I was also at Fort McClellan, AL where we were exposed to nuclear particles in the air and Agent Orange in the water that was dumped by the Monsanto plant next to the fort. I have lost many friends I served with who died from diseases related to those chemicals. I feel like I am on borrowed time. I have 4 young children ages 8,9,9 and 11.

letourvoicesecho-indigenousholocaust-nativeamericanmassacre-5

12-29-16 ~ To better comprehend Standing Rock, throughout the past century, prime Indian land has been seized or “bought” by the Federal government or corporations with no regard for Native rights or needs. This Associated Press photo from 1948 shows the Secretary of the Interior “buying” 155,000 acres of Indian land in North Dakota for a government reservoir. The weeping face of the Fort Berthold Tribal councilman says it all.

At a certain point, people have to say “ENOUGH.” Which is what the Standing Rock resistance is all about.

letourvoicesecho-indianholocausr-standingrock-nodapl-001

12-29-2016 ~ A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY TO THINK ABOUT.…… December 29, 2016 marks the 126th Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The Calvary began shooting, and managed to wipe out the entire camp. 200 of the 297 victims were women and children. About 40 members of the 7th Cavalry were killed, but over half of them were victims of fratricide from the Hotchkiss guns of their overzealous comrades-in-arms.

TWENTY members of the 7th Cavalry’s death squad, were deemed “National Heroes” and were awarded the Medal of Honor for their acts of [cowardice] heroism.

We hear very little of Wounded Knee today. It is usually not mentioned in our history classes or books. What little that does exist about Wounded Knee is normally a sanitized “Official Government Explanation”. And there are several historically inaccurate depictions of the events leading up to the massacre, which appear in movie scripts and are not the least bit representative of the actual events that took place that day.

Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.

Before you jump on the emotionally charged bandwagon for gun-control, take a moment to reflect on the real purpose of the Second Amendment, the right of the people to take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in the face of invading armies or an oppressive government. The argument that the Second Amendment only applies to hunting and target shooting is asinine. When the United States Constitution was drafted, “hunting” was an everyday chore carried out by men and women to put meat on the table each night, and “target shooting” was an unheard of concept. Musket balls were a precious commodity and were certainly not wasted on “target shooting”. The Second Amendment was written by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe, and it refers to the right of American citizens to be armed for defensive purposes, should such tyranny arise in the United States.

As time goes forward, the average citizen in the United States continually loses little chunks of personal freedom or “liberty”. Far too many times, unjust gun control bills were passed and signed into law under the guise of “for your safety” or “for protection”. The Patriot Act signed into law by G.W. Bush, was expanded and continues under Barack Obama. It is just one of many examples of American citizens being stripped of their rights and privacy for “safety”. Now, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is on the table, and will, most likely be attacked to facilitate the path for the removal of our firearms, all in the name of “our safety”.

Before any American citizen blindly accepts whatever new firearms legislation that is about to be doled out, they should stop and think about something for just one minute-

Evil does exist in our world. It always has and always will. Throughout history evil people have committed evil acts. In the Bible one of the first stories is that of Cain killing Abel. We can not legislate “evil” into extinction. Good people will abide by the law, and the criminal element will always find a way around it.

Evil exists all around us, but looking back at the historical record of the past 200 years, across the globe, where is “evil” and “malevolence” most often found? In the hands of those with the power, the governments. That greatest human tragedies on record and the largest loss of innocent human life can be attributed to governments. Who do the governments always target? “Scapegoats” and “enemies” within their own borders…but only after they have been disarmed to the point where they are no longer a threat. Ask any Native American, and they will tell you it was inferior technology and lack of arms that contributed to their demise. Ask any Armenian why it was so easy for the Turks to exterminate millions of them, and they will answer “We were disarmed before it happened”. Ask any Jew what Hitler’s first step prior to the mass murders of the Holocaust was- confiscation of firearms from the people.

Wounded Knee is the prime example of why the Second Amendment exists, and why we should vehemently resist any attempts to infringe on our Rights to Bear Arms. Without the Second Amendment we will be totally stripped of any ability to defend ourselves and our families.

12-28-16 ~ Wicapi Otto… or those of you needing facts. Here is a fact that I can undeniably refute. DAPL has the media purporting that Standing Rock never objected. Well they never counted on someone like me that actually reads stuff like their boring reports.

An article was passed recently that had an audio recording from 2014 of the tribes objection. However this report was taken directly from the Army Corp of Engineers website and is the public report submitted by DAPL and the ACE. It was published in 2015 and updated in 2016. If anyone says the tribe did not do due diligence proof is here. You can click the link and see the publishing dates and click the PDF to read. Um…it is 1261 pages long though…good thing to do if at Oceti Oyate and learn about what we are fighting.

12-28-6 ~ Magpie Waters… O ci yo I thought it was a sign of hope when the United States Veterans announced that they were organizing and heading to the freezing North Dakota plains at Standing Rock, to stand with and stand in front of the water protectors to get them out of harms way. Nobody new what kind of effect that it would have on the situation. It was monumental (remember that word) in this unprecedented gathering of Indigenous people.

Never in the time of Indigenous people has a gathering like this taken place and pow-wows don’t count. What was monumental was not just former military members coming to protect Water Protectors, but the healing that took place, between the two groups and the tribes. Water is Life unified all people gathering to fight the Black Snake. Veterans prayed with the Water Protectors and, asked for forgiveness for past atrocities that the United States military had committed in the genocide of our ancestors. They then acted as mediators to bring peace were none had been for so long.

Here is Magpie Waters video number four, for the year. At the time this video was produced with a misspelled cavalry(where Jesus died) in the title instead of the kind that are part of the military. I thought it was a sign of hope when the United States Veterans announced that they were organizing and heading to the freezing North Dakota plains to stand with and stand in front of the water protectors to get them out of harms way. Nobody new what kind of effect that it would have on the situation. It was monumental (remember that word) in this unprecedented gathering of Indigenous people.

Like many people around the world the night of November 20 sparked not only outrage but activity in writing the President, the North Dakota governor and many others I would have never guessed that veterans would be the answer in solving the violence against Water Protectors.

I shouldn’t have been surprised by the healing either. Anyone, who has been around our elders, Sun Dancers, Pipe Carriers and Medicine People understand their genuine love for our earth and all who walk, slither, swim, fly and crawl on it. They have the power of peace. This peace allows healing to take place in times when no one else can.

The veterans stood tall at Standing Rock and are true American heros. Wado and blessings to them all and to all the Water Protectors on the front lines of battle and everywhere in between. All my Relations, Magpie Waters

I’ve come here to represent our 12 tribes with nothing in my pockets, but with good will, and honor in my heart. I have become known and well thought of as High hat a person to seek out if you need help of any kind. A warrior who will hold shield position and not abandon those behind him.Even after being wounded, gassed and frozen I have kept my shield high and strong. I wish to represent and honor my nation as best and as long as I’ve the strength and life to do so. I am not a person who readily requests help from another. But I am here now to beseech any who may be inclined to, and in a position to help. I have repeatedly requested that flag of our tribe to be sent to me, so that I might fly our colors high and proud above my lodges. So that all who seek my assistance or counsel might have our beautiful star to guide them to my lodge flap, and any of our tribal relation who may travel to this distant land may find a piece of home to welcome them in. I’ve been informed by our counsel that as an individual I cannot represent us in such a fashion. I am not requesting financial backing,nor am I not asking for a counsel seat. I just want the world to see that we are here to be counted among those who choose life over wealth for us and our loved ones living and yet to be born.If anyone of you has access to our (Colville) flag and can find it in your heart to give,loan or sell said article to me. I would truly be appreciative to you and yours eternally.

I returned to Florida December 4 but my cough stayed with me…and grew.

Tuesday I began having an asthma attack that I had been building for days… feeling was building into a death for me…. It became so intense it took my breath and nearly my life… My roommate and dear friend Carol R. Brown Lmt saved my life.
She called the ambulance..she coached the EMTS on the medical procedure I had to have to save my life…She held my hand the entire time…she looked into my eyes and kept me calm…kept me from panicking and pushing my life over the edge of no return…I made the long ride from the woods to Florida memorial hospital in Flagler…because EMT named Roy held my hand and looked me in the eyes and talked me thru each painful inhale and exhale….I have been here a few days …totally exhausted from the pushing air in and out…breathing is exhausting….the STERIODS lines are fighting the fluids in my lungs… Medications fight the side effects of the STERIODS and fight my panic and anxiety attacks from struggling to breath..other medications are fighting the pneumonia…and hourly breathing machine with meds to fight asthma…it seems the tear gas rocket that hit my chest on the bridge emptied a lot of acid powder in to the air I breathed and I got a lot of powder deep in my lungs…I still smell the acid when I cough…the result is That i will stay here under extra care and medicine while my body finishes coughing and removing all the tear gas powder.

I am hurting and tired but I am in a loving hospital..the group of caregiver’s all know about #NoDAPL and the Water Protectors and the Lakota and the treaty rights and the bridge on November 20th…they knew before I got here…they send there love to all on the frontline…they treat me with honor and respect and love because of you.
The Water Protectors…

They say they promise to heal me …to tell the frontline that they will heal this warrior….because they love the Frontline…
How beautiful is that.

Here in Florida a group of healthcare givers are all knowing and supporting the frontline…

Earlier we went to the bridge and prayed, took a few pictures. Concrete barriers and razor wire are still up, vehicles were moved days ago, bridge inspection will take “thirty days”…A gun was pulled on us by DAPL mercenaries stated that if we touched the barbed wire we would be shot. People tried speaking to them reasonably. When I told them the pollution from these oil spills invades my womb and breast milk for the next seven thousand generations they walked back to their cars…we will post video later. We went up on the bridge again later praying with the drum, got on our knees and prayed. Some people, unarmed as always, walked off into the field not far from the bridge and were shot with rubber bullets by cops.

Unfortunately 4 scouting from Sacred Stone were arrested, but this was unrelated to our group.

I didn’t go on Turtle Island. Prayers have been laid there. I told the feds to get off the gravesites and sacred site.

12-27-16 ~ This is an image of history made just today. These burnt trucks were removed from the now famous Highway 1806 blockade. This life-threatening war crime by Morton County is finally being stopped and dismantled. It is a war crime against all people of this region of North Dakota, including the Protectors, according to Article 24 of the Geneva Convention. This war crime is ending just now, after two months, and it is the People who are ending it. That is why this picture means so much.

“Please keep the Protectors in your prayers tonight. The action taken today on Highway 1806 was by the People. That means that Morton County may act in retaliation soon (illegally).

12-26-16 ~ Beautiful things can happen when we stand firm in our faith, keep love and compassion in our hearts and see everyone as our sisters and brothers, and speak the truth openly. Here is an inspiring story from water protector Salix Roots, who broke the ice with some National Guardsmen at a hotel in Bismarck when they were socked in together by the blizzard.

I had breakfast downstairs this morning in a hotel in Bismarck, ND, where I await for the next possible flight back to Santa Fe. A blizzard rolled in, cancelling all potential flights I was booked for. I’ll be heading to the airport as soon as the roads are clear enough so I can be on standby for the next available flight. In the meantime, find me snowed in at the Expressway Suites and processing the experience that I’ve had this past week at Standing Rock. I can’t quite articulate just what it means yet, but soon I will take a gander.

In the meantime, at breakfast today, I sat next to three National Guard Military members who have been going back and forth between Standing Rock and Bismarck. We are all stuck here in this hotel together.

There they were, those mysterious people stationed up on that hill with those bright, blinding lights casting down on the peaceful Water Protectors 24/7. I wanted to engage. I had seen them wandering around the hotel and wanted to interview them and hear their story but naturally, they were guarded and didn’t even want to tell me their names. So, I told them mine, and I shared my story with them.

I told them about my experience at Standing Rock, and how we’ve been praying for them to listen to what we are trying to say. Praying for them to come around. Praying in Sweat Lodges, praying in meetings, praying quietly to ourselves as we drift off to sleep each night. I quickly started to cry, tears dripping like jewels from the reservoir of anguish that I’ve been carrying. They looked at me when I spoke. They nodded in empathy. They listened. I did not feel any slither of judgment from these militarized men who are just doing their best to live their lives the way that they know how.

I told them how badly we want reconciliation, constructive dialogue, environmental protection for future generations, indigenous sovereignty, and the honoring of treaties. They didn’t argue with any of it. They just heard me and held that space.

They’re guard dissolved right before my very eyes. I felt their humanity. I maintained my vulnerability. Soon we were laughing together. I sensed they understood the futility of perpetuating continued violence towards native peoples and all who are out there, doing their best to protect what matters most to them. We are all just doing our best, after all.

We have been indoctrinated into a system that none of us is to blame for, but each of us is responsible for transforming when injustice is present and we become aware and compassionate enough to do something about it. Sometimes that can be a simple, honest dialogue with the perceived enemy where you can transmute the illusory differences that keep you separate. Sometimes it’s realizing that the enemy is really just another reflection of you.

If there’s anything that I learned from my week at Standing Rock, its that help will come because people are desiring a new way to listen. Some new kind of energy is moving through our bloodstreams, we are dropping our guards, realizing the enormous task of healing that is underway and how we each have a part to play in this, no matter which tribe you belong to or which hill you stand on. We have what it takes to do so much better. We have what it takes to respect one another, and listen to more stories then the ones that we keep telling ourselves.

Photo taken by Macon Verteskjall at Standing Rock. I’m sitting in the snow here with The National Guard // DAPL lights off in the distance. I wish I could have walked right up that hill and said to them what I said to the men I had breakfast with today, but for now…baby steps, baby steps, baby steps…may we learn how to crawl, stand, and walk together, united, all in due time.

12-26-16 ~ LRInspire… Dakota 38 + 2 wokiksuye, remembering the 38 Dakotas who were hung on this day in Mankato, Minnesota the largest mass execution in US colonial history. painting by Patrick Campbell

On December 26th 1862, the United States Army hanged 38 Dakota warriors in Makato, Minnesota. It was, and remains, the largest mass execution in American colonial history. Two Dakota warriors who had escaped into Canada were eventually captured, returned to the United States, and hanged at Fort Snelling in 1865. #NeverForget

12-26-2016 ~ 150 Years Ago Today Largest Mass Execution in US History
Riding out :: Preparing for the circle up :: Final day of the #Dakota38+2 A spiritual Ride out of Land of Memories into Mankato where the largest mass US public execution happened in our dark history of settlers ordered by President Lincoln. This day marks a day of healing for our people. Never forgotten . #NoMoreDakotaExile

The hanging of 38 Sioux Indians in Minnesota December 26, 1862 was the failure “again” of the U.S. Government to honor it’s treaties with Indian Nations. Indians were not given the money or food set forth to them for signing a treaty to turn over more than a million acres of their land and were forced to live on a reservation.

Mary Todd Lincoln had over spent decorating and cleaning the Executive mansion blowing the entire four year budget allocated by Congress in a matter of months then tried to cover it up; when Lincoln found out he immediately dispatched Congress to quietly approve two appropriations to pay her bills which were taken from the annuity payments due to the Dakota Indians.

Indian agents kept the treaty money and food that was to go to the Indians; One local trader, Andrew Myrick, said of the Indians’ plight, “If they are hungry, let them eat grass or their own dung.” The food was sold to White settlers; food given to the Indians was spoiled and not fit for dogs to eat. Indian hunting parties went off reservation land looking for food to feed their families; one hunting group took eggs from a White settlers land. Trader Andrew Myrick was found dead his mouth stuffed with grass.

Authorities in Minnesota asked President Lincoln to order the immediate execution of all 303 Indian males found guilty. Lincoln, concerned with how this would play with the Europeans, whom he was afraid were about to enter the war on the side of the South offered the following compromise to the politicians: They would pare the list of those to be hung down to 39. In return, Lincoln promised to kill or remove every Indian from the state and provide Minnesota with 2 million dollars in federal funds although he only owed the Sioux 1.4 million for the land.

President Lincoln, the Great Emancipator ordered the largest mass execution in American History, where the guilt of those to be executed was entirely in doubt. Regardless of how Lincoln defenders seek to play this, it was nothing more than murder to obtain the land of the Santee Sioux and to appease his political cronies in Minnesota.

On December 26, 1862 President Lincoln notified Sibley that he should cause to be executed thirty-nine of the 303 convicted Santees, Execution date was the 26th of December. At the last minute, one Indian was given a reprieve. About ten o’clock the thirty-eight condemned men were marched from the prison to the scaffold. They sang the Sioux death song until soldiers pulled white caps over their heads and placed nooses around their necks. At a signal from an army officer, the control rope was cut and thirty-eight Santee Sioux dangled lifeless in the air.

12-26-16 ~ via Oceti Sakowin Camp … The Real Winter Makes an Appearance
Last night 5 men were caught in a vehicle a little over a mile away from the shelter where our team has been working. They called around 3.

We called BIA, reached out for Security… the storm blocked almost all means for help. 2 people helping out at the shelter went in search of local vehicles to pull them out with and came back without success. 3 of the OSCM team went out to scout the conditions, to see what was possible, that’s this video.

They made it to the main road out of Cannon Ball to 1806. They couldn’t see the headlights of the vehicle, but the did see that the snow was blowing 3-4 foot drifts over the roadway that vehicles couldn’t have traversed without a plow… our guys were climbing over them. They had to come back and all we could do was pray for them, and let them know what we were discovering at each step.

This morning at 9 we got confirmation that everyone is safe and accounted for, including the 2 young men who came up from camp on snowmobile, that plan to be shuttling them each here.
#PrayersUP

***Would this be the situation if Morton County & Co had not persisted in blocking the highway at the bridge?***

The DOT needed to test the bridge for safety before the blockade could be removed. They and Morton County have been repeatedly assured that DOT personnel would be safe. As our collective camp documentation assures, we are PRAYERFUL, and would not interfere with such a vital process.

The camp is ready, and we are all in celebration of Christmas and the coming holidays despite the storm. I want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone that has shown love, sent smoke, shared prayers, and offered donations for everyone at camp. I can only speak for myself, but I know everyone here at camp is very grateful for your solidarity and the outpouring of love. We will defeat this pipeline, but none of this would have been possible without the world standing together in support. From my heart to yours, thank you.

‎12-24-16 ~ Aaron Dorn‎… Anyone know an attorney who could look at my case and offer some advice. I will fire my public pretender and represent myself if he doesn’t file motions to discharge all false charges laid against me and/or file for a change of venue. I am facing two felonies and a misdemeanor which are all bogus, obviously. The prosecutors are trying to steal my truck as a forfeiture and have had possession of my driver’s license, passport, all my cash and credit cards as well as my truck since thanksgiving. They deny they have my phone. My public pretender has gotten a court order for them to release and gave me the court order but when I went to the Morton county sheriffs to have them release my property, they refused, even called the prosecutor who signed it and she refused. BTW, my public pretender’s office is located two blocks away from the courthouse which makes me feel very uncomfortable putting my life in his hands, if you know what I mean. i will include every video and court docs i have in this message. I was arrested and beaten by Morton county sheriff’s department for passing a patrol car on the way to the Thanksgiving Day action in Mandan. I arrived at rosebud camp about a week before Thanksgiving and made daily supply runs for the medics and construction crews. I am sure this is why the police targeted me and stole my truck. Every time I went in these supply runs I was followed by patrol vehicles and unmarked police vehicles. Medical and construction supplies are still in my truck. I was on the bridge the night the DAPL funded police/military force use lethal force against us. I was teargased, shot with less-lethal rounds and drenched with water in freezing temperatures. I was an infantryman in the NY National Guard and none of my training compared to that night. Except the teargas. I have witnessed firsthand and been a victim of police abuse, lies and the misuse of our justice system all for exercising my right to peaceably assemble on public land. On Monday morning (12/19) as we were praying at the courthouse I had a Morton County Sherriff shove me off the sidewalk from behind. One of the legal team saw this and asked for the officer’s name and badge number. He gave his badge number but when he noticed I was standing behind the legal aid worker he said he will refuse to give his name and walked away. Had bit of a guilty conscious.

12-24-16 ~ Wes Clark Jr…. TO THE HATERS, ACCUSERS AND NAYSAYERS:
Some of you seem to think I personally profited from the Veterans Stand deployment to Standing Rock. This is patently untrue. No money from the GoFundMe page has passed through my hands or will pass through my hands as I have never had access to the funds and was told repeatedly that I had no say or control over how the funds were spent as Veterans Stand was not an official NGO at the time nor do I hold any title or authority in the organization. This operation was simply a call out to see who would come and stand in support of our Constitution and the protection of both our environment and the indigenous peoples within the borders of the United States who we have horribly mistreated throughout our history and whose mistreatment continues to the present day.

To those hating me for apologizing to the Lakota – I don’t care what prideful haters think so feel free to keep despising me but understand that you leave a clear digital trail right back to yourself as to what kind of person you are.

To those hating me for “stealing” money, you are repeating falsehoods published by online, unsourced periodicals with no facts. When the money raised has been spent and Michael A Wood jr publishes how the money was spent, the websites which initially spread these lies will either issue a front page apology or be sued out of existence for libel by a competent legal team who will go after the websites, the individual reporters as well as the right wing PR firms that work for the hydrocarbon industries that funded and pushed the libel in the first place (as well as the human rights and Constitutional violations that took place at Standing Rock for months). Be careful what you forward and spread, because despite the facts put forth by myself and Michael A Wood jr, you continually reprint, share lies and therefore are also guilty of libel.

There is such a thing as truth and justice in this world and you’re going to get it whether you like it or not. I suggest you put on your big boy pants and start dealing with reality rather than the phantasm of fear and paranoia orchestrated by our corporate overlords.

12-24-16 ~ Amnesty International writes to the North Dakota Supreme Court
“According to reports, the public defender system in North Dakota is struggling to handle the case load stemming from the more than 500 arrests related to protests of the DAPL. The petition that was submitted to the Court notes that 79 attorneys have been assigned as public defenders for 265 cases, while an additional 264 people are listed without counsel. Furthermore, it is reported that private attorneys in the state either cannot or will not be able to fill the needs of those seeking representation. Other public defenders within the state of North Dakota may be limited from taking on more of these cases due to the conspiracy charges that were filed in several of these cases.”

“Not only would this violate international standards on the right to a fair trial, but it could also be construed as being unconstitutional.

Everyone deprived of their liberty or facing a possible criminal charge has the right to the assistance of a lawyer to protect their rights and to help in their defense.”

12-24-16 ~ Lolly Bee… finally back Home for a week after 4 months at Standing Rock. I coordinated the mental and emotional health for the standing rock medic and healer council. I run the facebook group Standing Rock Stories and kept a vlog on youtube under lollybehealing. I also helped support the wellness room initative at the casino hotel to attend to peoples needs. This was the hardest and most rewarding and meaningful job I ever had.

I had no idea what was in store when I set out on a roadtrip west the first week of August just after my birthday. I am so grateful that Spirit guided me to become a water protector in north dakota. I feel like I was waiting for this my whole life. I have barely begun to process the myriad experiences from swelling pride during prayer marches to crisis management in the face of violent trauma.

The people I met will stay connected to my heart forever and I look forward to crossing paths many times as we continue this stand to defend the sacred earth we live on. I grew up in so many ways and proved myself more capable that I could have imagined. I did so much every single day to get done what needed to be done and kept on going despite exhaustion and stress. I feel like my years of travel and running my own businesses as well as my experience working with trauma prepared me well for this role. The hugs and gifts and deep friendships kept me going. The prayers were felt and the global support carried all of us in this historic movement. I am amazed at the ripple effect that the camp had on millions of people. I offer the utmost honor to the indigenous people and appreciate the wisdom and strength that made this movement peaceful, prayerful and powerful.

I know that we have what it takes to change the way humans relate to our planet and remember how to live in harmony with her. It does not mean everyone has to go live outside in a camp, but it means that you are responsible for the decisions you make every day and how it affects this land and water we depend on. It is up to each of us within ourselves and then to come together.

I am so grateful for everyone who supported my journey and I will continue sharing updates and reflections to the group.
thank you

12-24-16 ~ Josué Rivas Fotographer… Every morning at sunrise a singer would wake up everyone at the camp. He sang songs of freedom in Lakota. Sometimes there would be actions every morning, people would gather at the South Gate and jump in their vehicles not knowing where we would go. Spirit was leading. I took this photo in one of those mornings. I was sitting in one of the cars, I raised the camera in my hand and took the shot without looking through the viewfinder. When I was selecting my images for the day I saw something on this one even though it was underexposed.

12-24-16 ~ Jennifer Mahoney‎… I just watched a video in which my Ron’s drone was stolen out of his truck by Morton county police officers. Yes stolen.

A simple thought as to any further actions or filming of yourself as media or interviewing protectors… I do believe it may be time to protect something else right now

Your identities! Time to mix things up. They now know who all the players are on your side. You are all getting railroaded. This is not about the law. There is no law. Meaning no list of rules and regulations that they have to abide by.

It is very limited as to how to counter attack the injustices perpetuated by the terroristic gustapo of the establishment…

This is really getting out of hand.

Disguise…Get some new reporters on the scene.. Do not ever go out alone in a vehicle or be caught out on the road by yourself in the middle of nowhere.. Mix things up. A lot! Stop giving them information as to what you are doing and what your names are…

Two vehicles…4 people at all times.. Find a lawyer you can call in a moment’s notice when you are pulled over.. You put that person on speaker phone. That was truly sickening.

Btw the buzz outside of the circle to do with questionable practices with the funds everyone is accruing is huge.. Larger than you know I think. You need to somehow address that before it gets out of control. Better to be transparent financially right now. I am sure some are aware. It is great you are showing that funds are going towards food etc. That is perfect as far as public relations. Okay..

I am but one, you are many. Protect each other out there.

Keep a close eye on the family.. do believe that all of this may result in some very negative actions being portrayed but coming from a mind that is confused, scared and angry. Mental health.

Love you all. I stand. As I sit and type and share and recruit and converse and get incensed with anger and disbelief at how absolutely wrong this is.

Our experiences includes helping hundreds of people avoid hypothermia, pulling dozens of people struggling in the cold water, and delivering medical supplies and relief to Standing Rock residents and security personnel. We clear snow drifts from river shores, for other watercraft, and respond 24/7 to calls which the Morton County Sheriff will not answer, or respond to.

We understand the Morton County Sheriff is also joining us for drills on safety and rescue, to protect us?

I pray they join us in helping our peoples hurt by the Sherriff’s water cannons, rubber shotgun slugs and bean bags, tear gas, flashbang grenades, and Long Range Acoustical Device (LRAD).

We can help train the Morton County Sheriff’s department on these rescue methods, we have experience. I might apply for a Homeland Security Grant to assist them in cold water rescue.

12-22-16 ~ Holly Livengood… Whoever this young man is, he took a water cannon blast full in the face to cover the people behind him. I mean he ran up on purpose and steped in front of them with this water poncho on. So they aimed it right in his face. When it hit, he rocked back, forced himsef upright, and faced them full on, and raised his hands in prayer, not a fist. They kept it going, so he flashed a peace sign. I painted this from watching a live stream video, and the affect from the steam, and the water, just made him look more majestic. Like the water was apologising for being used like this, to hit him, so in return, she held him and made him look beautiful. This is truly manifesting the love of God in this world. Happy Winter Solstice, Merry Christmas.

A big shout out and special thanks to George Siemon and the Board for recognizing the humanitarian, indigenous rights and environmental need to protect the Sacred Water of the Missouri River by sending steady shipments since last summer!

12-21-16 ~ Prolific TheRapper… Now that I’m driving home alone the severity of what I’m facing is hitting me.

Just driving in silence thinking about what might happen.

7 years is a long time. $19,000 max fines for something I didn’t do.

I have to start thinking about my kids, because there’s a very real possibility that I won’t be there for a huge part of their childhood to take care of them.

7 years is a long time, but to a small child 7 years is huge. 7 years to a child can feel like 30. I would never wish what I’m facing on anyone, not even on the officer who’s lies put me in this situation.

Getting a fair jury in Morton County is probably going to be impossible. The local news has done such a good job misinforming North Dakota residents, that they have turned its citizens harshly against us, the water protectors. Thats ironic because we are trying to protect North Dakota’s clean water for ALL of its citizens.

We don’t want the world to end up like Flint Michigan or Corpus Christi Texas.

…The officer who lied about me on the stand wouldn’t make eye contact with me in court. I looked him in the eye, not in an intimidating way or an angry way, but in a curious way. I wanted to look into his soul while he was lying about me and see what it felt like, but he wouldn’t look at me. He would look everywhere at everyone else, but not at me.

He lied under oath about me. Said I recklessly endangered hundreds of people’s lives with my 3 pound drone. Said I tried to fly into a plane. Thats not true.

I’m learning that a courtroom isn’t a place where Justice is easily found. It’s a place where what you can and can’t talk about is restricted. It’s a place where you can’t get to the truth of the matter, because every time you start digging for the truth the prosecutor says “objection, outside of the scope of this hearing” and then the judge says “sustained.”

It’s a place where they play a word game, and usually the team with the most money can hire the best lawyers to win the word game.

If you’re Super Rich you’re probably going to walk free, but if you’re super poor you’re probably going to jail or prison.

Not all of the judges are bad, some are good. Not all police are bad, some are good. Not all white people in North Dakota are racist, but some of them are. And the news has lied to everyone in North Dakota which brought out a lot of prejudice in white North Dakotans.

The police brutality and dirty tactics by DAPL security also increased the prejudice in many water protectors. And all of this was fueled by a corporation’s greed. Dakota Access’s insistence to not do a full E.I.S or address Standing Rocks concerns.

And then it comes back to me. I might have to go to prison for a police officers lies and a corporation’s greed.

The only sense of justice I have in all of this is my belief in God or Creator. Because they can manipulate the laws of man all day, but they can’t manipulate the laws of creator. One day they’re going to have to answer for the harm that they have caused to others.

Despite everything it’s still #NODAPL

I LOVE YOU ALL. My next court date is March 31st, between now and then I’m going to focus on doing the things that make my spirit feel full and happy.

12-21-16 ~ Annalee Newitz … Tonight will be the darkest night of the past 500 years … Thanks to a lunar eclipse on the longest night of the year, tonight we’ll be experiencing the longest, darkest night in a very long time. It’s been nearly 500 years since the last solstice lunar eclipse. Here’s what you’ll see.
NYU science journalism professor John Rennie explains what you’re likely to see in the wee hours of the morning:

1. Faint penumbral dimming of the moon’s disk.
2. Pervasive creeping sensations of unease.
3. Howling of wolves.
4. Unclean things walk the earth; Dick Cheney rises from the grave.
5. Contortion of the zodiac.
6. Intrusion of strange dimensions.
7. Universal gibbering madness.
8. Cthulhu.
9. A glimmer of sanity in the chaos.
10. Restoration of Euclidean geometry.
11. Fungal Mi-go from Yuggoth return captive brains to their rightful owners.
12. Applause, followed by waffles for breakfast.

12-21-16 ~ Note From LaDonna. Thank you!
“Hihanna waste today marks the shortest day of the year, I want to wish everyone a Happy Solstice remember to pray for the water today as we began winter. We came to Stand for the water, we remain to stand for the water, but we also came to stand for ourselves to make better lives for our people. In the world every thing is about respect we must respect the water and our earth we stand on. We must respect the winter, the wind and the cold because even in the winter there is beauty all around us. As our beautiful rivers freezes over and becomes our walkways and roads we have access to place that are cutoff in the summer. We can share the beauty around us. I love winter time but you must be prepared for it and have your supplies ready. In the winter time we can share stories, culture, history and families, everyone can start projects to complete sewing, beading, quilts, and cooking. I believe everyone should have a good pot of soup on everyday to feed the people. I remember in grandma Alice house the smell of the wood stove burning, and a big pot of soup on and she made the best bread pudding. I did not know that I would treasure those memories each day and thankful for living on the Cannon Ball River. Please on this day lay some tobacco down and give thanks for our lives, our people and the water. We have only just begun to stand together for a better world. Sending prayer to all of you who are my heart, for everyone who stand for the water is my relative and i am honored by you. STOP DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE.”

12-21-16 ~ Crystal Houser… The wind is threatening to dismantle the shelter. Very uneasy morning. Taking precautions. Letting the fire die down, propane bottles nearest the exit, dressed well in case we need to evacuate. Shelter has been holding strong for hours, just uneasy. The flags on flag road sure are whipping beautifully in the wind though.

12-21-16 ~ Indigenous Life Movement… We the people have been led to believe that mining, drilling, fracking, pipelines, offshore drilling and refineries were safe and our only option as means for our survival.

We are here to inform you otherwise.

It’s time we the nation begin the transitions towards renewable clean energy.

Doing this will help protect future generations from contaminated water, land and air.

Flint Michigans citizens of women, men, children and elders are enduring lead poisoning by the hand of their State, County and city elected officials who abused their position and allowed the events to occur that poisoned their water supply.

This is what is to come of our beautiful country if we continue to allow governments elected officials to allow careless and deadly companies to continue destroying our beautiful land below the surface to the skies.

These companies are endangering our lives and the lives of our children and elders.

It is time we take action in awakening our country’s elected and elite in order to prevent events as in Flint Michigan, North Dakota, Arizona, Florida, Utah, Nevada, California and many more.

It’s time for the people to unite and protect our beautiful Mother Earth.

letourvoicesecho-ocetioyate-sheriffkylekirchmeier-mortoncountysheriff

12-20-16 ~ John Bravebull… It’s this kind of fear mongering that shows the true character of our opposition.

Before I say this next part, please know I’m not against police officers. Police officers that do their job with in the limit of the law and constitution, that is. With that being said:

The whole point of us fighting this bullshit pipe line is to protect children. Some of us haven’t seen our children in months. Some of us have missed milestones that we can’t get back and for you to blame us for your actions is unjustified and down right ugly. Denying Children something they may not have in their lives and then use it as publicity against a peaceful prayerful movement literally makes you look like the biggest dicks in the state. More so than shooting un armed people Standing on a public highway, some of which were under 18 and defined as children. (The legal definition of child generally refers to a minor, otherwise known as a person younger than the age of majority.) Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. Take the kids shopping and stop letting your guilt turn to irrational fear. Just because you sunk to levels below human decency, don’t assume we will. Not just you Kirchmeier, but all of you who think we are out here to hurt children need Jesus or whatever you believe in, back in your lives.

If you’re local in Mandan or Bismark take a gift to the sherrifs department for these kids who are missing out cause this really is a poor ass excuse not to continue this program.

12-19-16 ~ Ahva Lenay … Today 11 of our Water Protectors went to their hearing in Morton County, at the Mandan Courthouse. It looks like the hearing is rescheduled for January best as I can make out… The judge needs more time.
Let’s keep our prayers strong and unwaivering. Thank you Water Protectors one and all! Your sacrifice is witnessed, acknowledged and carried with such deep gratitude from countless numbers of souls who feel deeply the courage, resolve and selflessness of your actions on behalf of us all! On behalf of our Earth Mama! Tobacco is going down, sage is being lit…. prayers are going uP, and …. may grace restore the balance, our faith in humanity and may the actions of your heart ripple out far and wide and spread the bravery and the resolve to speak out where there is danger to our people, our Earth, and our future. May justice reign. Thank you Kelli Love, Donald Strickland, Jordan Walker, Shailene Woodley, and those who’s names I don’t know but who’s faces and actions will forever be remembered and felt… know you’re making a difference for us all!

12-11-16 ~ Lolly Bee… Standing Rock has changed the world, it has awakened an aspect of our spirits that has been dampered for a long time in the collective consciousness. It has rekindled our connection to the earth and nature as a divine part of our world. It has brought us out of our complacency and reminded the people of our capacity. Standing rock has helped many to acknowledge not only the history of our ancestors but brought our awareness to the long term future of the next seven generations. Our culture has become distracted by immediate comforts and short term greed. Living outside in the elements has helped us to build more of an intimacy with the planet we rely on. Standing our ground in the face of the government and corporations which are on a destructive path has reinforced our conviction that we have to be the change we want to see. We have to step out of our comfort zone if we want to make things different, it requires action and sacrifice. We hve come together across so many lines of division for that which is common to us all, our survival and need for water and the earth. This union of all people in the face of powers that appear to have impunity helps us to fortify our ability to cause consequences to seemingly invincible forces. We pray that all people awaken and understand that the choice is up to us and that profit is not the most valuable resource. The connections made here and lessons learned have inspired millions and we will continue working for this cause beyond north dakota. We realize that the time is now and the people are us, for that is what changes the course of history.
