Dec 07am Dine’ Warriors for Standing Rock Update: our Dine’ Warriors finally got out of Cannonball at 4:00 am this morning. They are getting much needed rest at Pierre, South Dakota, today, they will push off this afternoon. The bus drivers have to get a mandatory 8 hours rest. That will get them into Denver area about midnight. They will motel it there and leave early in the morning. Perhaps we can have our Denver family do them a breakfast, we will see how that figures today. I will do another update about noon after we have more info and do some time calculations. At this point they will roll into Shiprock until Friday late afternoon.

Dec. 6 pm update

Dine’ Warriors for Standing Rock Update: very difficult to get communication in and out of Oceti Sakowin. Communication difficulty due to terrain, weather, maybe network overloads and for sure the government/corporation’s deliberate jamming of the air waves.
With the last communiques I got from Beverly and Vincent Yazzie, they are making effort to regroup to move out tomorrow, our crew had gotten scattered out, some are camping at the casino, some are back in Kenel and a few in Ft. Yates, I hope everyone is accounted for. Kenel is the staging area for Rez bound transportation and Beverly’s got it arranged for everyone to get back to Kenel in the morning. The plan is for our Dine’ Warriors to move out in the morning, of course weather and the road conditions permitting.
If that plans stays, they will be in Denver tomorrow evening chowing down at the Denver Indian Center. A big ahe’hee (thank you) to our Denver family. They will stay in Denver tomorrow evening and head out for the Rez-Shiprock early Thursday morning. We will have a potluck Welcome Home celebration Thursday afternoon about 4-5:00. We will post the specifics as soon as plans are solid. Perhaps families of Warriors can plan to come to Shiprock to pick up your Warriors and celebrate with us. Again, this all depends on the weather and the roads.
With regard to the seeming conflicting positions of breaking camp and going home or staying and keeping camp by some of the fearless Lakota Warriors, seems to point to the same distrust some of us Indigenous peeps have of Tribal elected leaders in the colonized system. We pray that for the sake of our ultimate cause, that the Solidarity that has been achieved is only built on to make it stronger. And with the pipeline executives saying they will proceed with the pipeline in spite of what the Army Corps says, hopefully might lead to a scene where DAPL forces face off with the Army Corps, who supposedly have issued a 'lawful' decision and we’ll see what the sheriff does with his declaration that he is there to enforce the law. Sounds like a good fight we will enjoy watching.

Operation Morton Engaged


Chief Arvol Looking Horse 'The Battle is Not Over'

Chief Arvol Looking Horse calls for an International Day of Prayer for Peace and Non-Violence at Oceti Sakowin Camp.
Chief Looking Horse called on all nations and all faiths to come together for one prayer.
"Mother Earth is sick and has a fever," said Chief Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe.
Chief Looking Horse said there must be help for the young people and all people.
An energy shift has to be created, and it must be created through prayer.
The news of the Dakota Access Permit being denied was a victory.
"The victory is there, but the battle is not over."
"This is a beginning that we are going into right now."
"We've got to realize that Standing Rock is everywhere in the whole world."

The Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council explains the medical and health situation at the Dakota Access Pipeline Resistance Camps (Oceti Sakowin, Sicangu/Rosebud, Sacred Stone, etc.) in light of the ongoing blizzard conditions and 1806 police roadblock.
Winter conditions are intense, but spirits at camp are high.

Everyone has been working together to get people to delegated warming spaces in camp and spaces on the reservation. Medics, security, and veterans have been going from shelter to shelter to do wellness checks on our water protectors. Women, children, elders and other folks who wish to leave camp are being evacuated with four wheel drive vehicles and operators who know how to use them.
The road conditions are icy. Visibility is low; however, roads are passable with four wheel drive vehicles. Our medical and logistical volunteers are evacuating patients/campers to the hospital and warming spaces as needed and are stabilizing patients in the meantime, coordinating with the Standing Rock EMS.
As of 2:00PM CST, there have been no confirmed deaths or any critical care patients. There have been two cases of moderate hypothermia for whom the medics on the ground provided care.
The main impediment to health is not the winter, but the state. The police roadblock on ND HWY 1806 is delaying the timely evacuation of patients and vulnerable populations. We have developed the capacity to keep the campers safe and warm, but are asking the state of North Dakota to cease its inhumane and unjustifiable blockade of highway 1806.
We applaud the water protectors efforts to self-organize and care for each other, the medics & healers who have collectively held space here for months, the Standing Rock EMS for their coordination and expert care of patients, and all other groups working tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of the campers.
We condemn the state for its refusal to remove the roadblock, even after the Army’s denial of the easement for Dakota Access Pipeline crossing Mini Sose/Lake Oahe/Missouri River.
Thank you and Mni Wiconi,
Standing Rock Medic & Healer Council

Mohawk Nation News 'Let's Not Extinguish Our Fire'



Please post.
MNN. DEC. 6, 2016. Don't  allow anyone to extinguish our fire. We must continue to kindle it, not let it turn into a smouldering cinder again. In the early 1970’s Wounded Knee’s fire was extinguished when the corporate chiefs told AIM, American Indian Movement, to leave. The world was focusing on the human rights, murders and treaty violations. A man was killed. We all know that could happen.
We have our their duty no matter what the corpo serpents says.
We have our duty no matter what the corpo serpents say.
Now Green Peace, celebrities, human rights, environmentalists, allies and millions of our people have come together creating pressure across the world about inhumanity, injustice and criminality. We are standing together to fight against the corporation.
The Army Corps of Engineers won’t give the Dakota Access Pipeline a permit to dig up our bodies and our mother!! DAPL says, “This changes nothing”. If there’s nobody there, they’ll go ahead.15284016_1431111013580575_337099425702183690_n
Corpo Tribal guy, Archambault, says, “Winter’s coming. Go home and spend Christmas with your family”. Winter always comes. The corporation knows that once they leave they can’t return. Many have their families right there.
It’s taken almost 45 years to get this momentum going again. Are we going to wait another 50 years to do this again? In 60 years there will be no viable land to plant on to feed the people.
The chief tries to talk down to the people.
Chiefs try  to talk down to the people.
Archambault say there was a victory. We are celebrating prematurely. Our morale was temporarily lifted. For the first time the veterans of all colors are standing with us and creation. We have to save the water. It’s causing stomach cancer among people, animals and plants. .
Archampault refers to Obama as his president and the North Dakota politician as his governor. He’s admitting he’s an agent for the government. He does not represent the Lakota.It is perfect for the corporation when the sheep control themselves. The ultimate form of slavery is when slaves believe they are free. Archambault is the sheep dog for the corporation.
Obama’s last executive order should be: no new pipelines in the US.  Laws of the land are being  broken. They are making the laws that say we have no free use of our land, water and air. FEMA concentration camps are ready for the water defenders. Donald Trump is getting ready to ride in as General George Armstrong Custer did. Their political games are always about money and control. Religion is mind control, money is debt, Your government is a corporation and the shareholders all have names and addresses.
The fire has been kindled and the paths have been laid from all directions.
As Jimmie Rodgers sings: “When a woman gets the blues, she hangs her little head and cries. she hangs her little head and cries. When a man gets the blues, he hops a train and he rides. Everytime I see that lonesome  railroad train, everytime I hear that lonesome railroad train, it makes me wish I was going home again”.
