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.

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.

Thoughts for today, #431 …. “The Bundy Takeover and the Standing Rock Tribe …. Can you see the double standards?


dstand

~~October 28, 2016~~ 

DOUBLE STANDARDS 

No doubt!

I remember when the Bundy ‘take-over’ was going on.

I even had a ‘discussion’ with a fellow Facebooker.

Yesterday, the ‘not guilty’ verdit came down.

They must really be ‘happy campers’.

In the meantime, flash to North Dakota …

Where’s the mainstream media?

I think they are distracted by this crazy election cycle.

Anyway, who cares?

It’s only ‘red people’, not ‘white people’, right?

Give the whites more power!

NOT!!

Bundy Brothers Acquitted in Takeover of Oregon Wildlife Refuge

By COURTNEY SHERWOOD and KIRK JOHNSON

Armed anti-government protesters led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy were acquitted Thursday, October 27, of federal conspiracy and weapons charges stemming from the takeover of a federally owned wildlife sanctuary in Oregon last winter.

The surprise acquittals of all seven defendants in Federal District Court were a blow to government prosecutors, who had argued that the Bundys and five of their followers used force and threats of violence to occupy the reserve.

But the jury appeared swayed by the defendants’ contention that they were protesting government overreach and posed no threat to the public.

At the end of the day …. “Native Americans Take the Dakota Fight to the United Nations …. “!!

UNITED NATIONS

Native American tribe takes oil fight to the United Nations 

Dave Archambault, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, waits to speak against the Energy Transfer Partners’ Dakota Access oil pipeline during the Human Rights Council session at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, Sept. 20, 2016.

CANNON BALL, NORTH DAKOTA

The simmering showdown here between the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the company building the Dakota Access crude-oil pipeline began as a legal battle.

It has turned into a movement.

We are ALL connected through NATURE!! 

Over the past few weeks, thousands of Native Americans representing tribes from all over the country have traveled to this central North Dakota reservation to camp in a nearby meadow and show solidarity with a tribe they think is once again receiving a raw deal at the hands of commercial interests and the U.S. government.

That river is the source of water for the reservation’s 8,000 residents.

Any leak, tribal leaders argue, would cause immediate and irreparable harm. And tribal leaders point to what they consider a double standard, saying that the pipeline was originally going to cross the Missouri north of Bismarck, the state capital, but was rerouted because of powerful opposition that did not want a threat to the water supply there.

The tribe says it also is fighting the pipeline’s path because, even though it does not cross the reservation, it traverses sacred territory taken away from the tribe in a series of treaties that have been forced upon it over the past 150 years.

Jo Ellen Darcy’s Petition …. “Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline” …. !!


jo

~~September 8, 2016~~ 

NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH

I’m 13 years-old and as an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, I’ve lived my whole life by the Missouri River. It runs by my home in Fort Yates North Dakota and my great grandparents original home was along the Missouri River in Cannon Ball. The river is a crucial part of our lives here on the Standing Rock Reservation.

But now a private oil company wants to build a pipeline that would cross the Missouri River less than a mile away from the Standing Rock Reservation and if we don’t stop it, it will poison our river and threaten the health of my community when it leaks.

In Dakota/Lakota we say “mni Wiconi.” Water is life.

Native American people know that water is the first medicine not just for us, but for all human beings living on this earth.

The Dakota Access Pipeline has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and members of nearly 100 more tribes from across the U.S. and Canada.

Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! producers were on the ground Saturday, September 3,  when the pipeline company attacked Native American protesters with dogs and pepper spray.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe filed evidence Friday that the proposed Dakota Access pipeline route falls directly on sacred Sioux sites.

Hours later, Goodman and Democracy Now! producers witnessed unexpected construction at one of the sites.

“This was a Labor Day weekend.

The bulldozers don’t work on the weekend,” Goodman tells Joy-Ann Reid.

“But this weekend, the day after they gave over that information, they’re there bulldozing over those sites.”
