Update from Standing Rock



I watched Standing Rock protesters dance for victory. Then the police arrested us.

The native people have moved back to other protest sites. Standing Rock is not over. It has become a global icon for the environment and for Indigenous people world-wide. After the passing of over a hundred years, our Native people have awaken much of America up to our misuse of our planet. We have no Planet B. The native people are well aware of this and we are now more aware.

Other tribes are going to be carrying on the peaceful protests. Trump’s wall goes through Native American burial grounds, which is not acceptable. They are going to need our help and support going forward. I will continue to bring you news of the native people and ways you can help if you wish to help.

 I am so impressed with these brave people. We committed genocide on their ancestors and killed thousands of people. No tribe was exempt from the vicious murders. The male white Europeans also stole their land and finally the federal government gave them land that was deemed useless. Only now, there has been the discovery of minerals and oil. So once again, we want their land. America, corporate America wants the land back that now is viewed valuable. This is immoral and unethical.

The native people have survived. They have formed sovereign nations with their own schools, law enforcement, and government. Now the native people have stood up to the descendants of their tormentors. With this comes a new vision of who they are and what they can accomplish in life. They have taken back their pride and the importance of their way of life.

I honor them and their bravery.
