WATER IS LIFE

(Mni Wiconi)

Mni Wiconi (Lakota for “Water is Life”)

A few weeks ago, early January, the Hollywood sign altered to read ‘Hollyweed‘.

Armed with four tarpaulins, a prankster had climbed Mount Lee under the cover of night to edit the iconic landmark, and changed it to “HOLLYWeeD.”

Wouldn’t it have been awesome if, instead, it read ‘Mni Wiconi’?

Just sayin’

~MY BELIEFS~

I stand with my Lakota and Dakota brothers and sisters because I believe the central question of the creation story is at the heart of their lament and their protest:

What will we do with the blessing of power God has given us?

This is a particularly poignant God-question for those of us who have the power of privilege in our country and the world.

HOPING TO BE WRONG

Not holding my breath!

How many times has “David” really beaten “Goliath”?

Winter is upon them. There are blizzard conditions there.

Obama will be president until January 2016.

Then … we all know what happens.

Hoping!

Dakota Access Pipeline

What happens next?

On Sunday afternoon, December 4, tribe members and their allies cried tears of joy after the US Army said it would not – for now – allow the pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.
The Army says the plan should be carefully restudied, and alternative routes should be more deeply considered.

The Army’s statement does not rule out approval for the current plan in the future. And with President Obama leaving office in January, many questions still remain about what’s next for the project.

The Obama admin is halting the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline under its current route. This is an incredible victory for the Standing Rock water protectors and all their allies worldwide.

We did it!

One victory in the climate wars.

Expect more to come.

STANDING TOGETHER IN PRAYER

Many people would agree that prayer alone will not solve all of our problems, but to the water protectors at Standing Rock, direct action is considered sacred. Prayer can be action. To live one’s life as if it were a prayer is a very powerful way to engage in the world around us.

Indigenous spirituality acknowledges that all of life is interconnected through nature, knowing that humans have a responsibility to steward and protect the land. Standing Rock’s resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline has become globally symbolic of the struggle to protect our environment from the heartless exploitation of extraction industries that threaten water, land, air, and life itself.

For the first time in history, we are seeing a unified global movement to stand and act in solidarity with our indigenous relatives to protect the sacred.

This is your opportunity to participate in something truly inspired and hopeful, to pray with Standing Rock!

Thoughts for today, #434 …. “To protect and serve …. Really? …. “!!


dakotacops

~~November 6, 2016~~ 

DEFINITION

When I thought about the police force before, I thought about how they expose their lives to ‘protect and serve‘ the communities they come from.

There seems to be a tendency to be drifting aways from the meaning behind that motto.

The picture/meme above is a perfect example.

In February 1955, the Los Angeles Police Department, through the pages of the internally produced BEAT magazine, conducted a contest for a motto for the police academy.

The conditions of the contest stated that: “The motto should be one that in a few words would express some or all the ideals to which the Los Angeles police service is dedicated. It is possible that the winning motto might someday be adopted as the official motto of the Department.”

To Protect and to Serve“, the motto of the Los Angeles Police Department since 1955, has been adopted by many other police forces.

‘All-Out War’ in North Dakota as Police Arrest 141 Water Protectors
Activists vow to keep up resistance to Dakota Access Pipeline

Police arrested 141 people in North Dakota on Thursday, November 3, moving in with pepper spray and armored tanks on Native American water protectors and other activists who for months have waged resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

Tara Houska, an Ojibwe attorney and director of the rights group Honor the Earth, told Democracy Now! on Friday, November 4, that the raid was an act of “all-out war … waged on Indigenous protectors.”

Houska, who was reportedly shot in the face with a beanbag round during the onslaught, also said in a separate statement released by a coalition of Indigenous groups on Friday,

“Yesterday was a shameful moment in American history.

Law enforcement is supposed to serve and protect the people, not corporate interests. Police enacted violence on people who were armed only with prayer.”

DAVID AND GOLIATH

The David and Goliath story is one of the most powerful analogies a communicator can use to describe an adversarial scenario between imbalanced competing interests.

Especially where the weaker party is deemed to be the more righteous competitor.

David and Goliath terminology has been used to describe a wide range of business, sports and political activities.

I can’t find a better application of this analogy than to what is happening in North Dakota.

Native Americans Protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline
“We have not been consulted in an appropriate manner about … the traditional cultural properties, sites, or landscapes vital to our identity and spiritual well-being.”

Something to think about …. “Sacred Burial Grounds …. no difference …. “!!

SACRED BURIAL GROUNDS

Double Standards

Why can’t all see that there is no difference between one and the other?

Why continue the destruction/decimation of a nation?

Why the lack of respect?

Because the white man has always felt to be above anyone other than himself.

The disconnect is obvious.

The disparity in full few.

It’s time to correct it.

Will humanity be able to do so?

Dave Meyers is the owner of 8,100 acres that the DAPL pipeline will be crossing to get to the Missouri River or Lake Oahe. During the last week of August, he was wondering if there was any Indian graves that might be disturbed by the construction of the pipeline.

To satisfy his curiosity, he asked Tim Mentz to assess the “corridor” route that was going to be used to host the buried pipeline. Dave Meyers was fully aware that an environmental assessment (EI) had been performed by the State Historic Preservation Office, however, these are non-Indian experts, whereas, Tim owns a company called Makoche Wowapi. His business consults Tribes regarding their archeological inheritance.

In addition, Tim previously worked as a Tribal and State Historic Preservation Officer since 1985.

With Tim’s knowledge and skill, he walked the area as allowed.

goldswirl

On Sunday, August 29, 2016, Tim and his sons found 82 significant historical marking, of which 27 were grave locations.

“ We found two places where rocks were set in a circular pattern with openings to the west, as well as other effigy designs.” Every site was professionally identified and precisely charted by computer for exact location by GPS.

To the untrained eye, walking the prairie on Mr. Meyer’s property everywhere is tall grass with some stone outcroppings now and then, but Tim Mentz’s trained eyes discovered shapes that just could not have happened in nature.

In fact, the stones had to be placed by the hand of thinking men. Intelligent men, who wanted to convey a story or to leave traditions of significance for the people.

…. and there is more!
