2/19/17 - People are working hard, but the job is too big. Call to ask for extension of camp cleanup deadline:
In this final hour before the February 22nd eviction date we are asking you to support us with a Global request for an extension of that deadline. We believe that this is an unrealistic timeline which can only result in forcible removal of Water Protectors and our sacred and personal belongs.
We are in full cooperation with The Army Corp of Engineers and are committed to a good faith combined effort to clean up the land. We want good relations with ACOE and believe that all parties can be honored for a positive outcome.
I ask you to contact the ACOE to make this request in a respectful way that will continue to feed the positive efforts that are being made on the ground by all parties.

This archive is an attempt to gather as much valuable information as possible from the ever-scrolling timelines of facebook (and elsewhere) that has been pouring out from North Dakota's Standing Rock Water Protector camps. There is great wisdom being shared by people taking a stand for a sustainable future for the generations to come.
Although this movement is about stopping the Dakota Access Pipeline and access to clean water for millions of people, to quote the following article, "This moment is, first and foremost, about Native liberation, self determination and Native survival." ( Read more here )
Subjects are organized so that links from facebook, and elsewhere, can be easily found. We hope you find it useful. May I recommend the interviews page as a place to start? Listen to the words of the people and see for yourself.
Look through the menu above for numerous links to interviews, videos, photos, and articles about daily actions and supporting indigenous nations at the Standing Rock Water Protector Camps, and scroll down for what you can do to help...

What does #NoDAPL mean?
#NoDAPL is a hashtag for the struggle against the proposed and partially built Dakota Access Pipeline.
More than that, it is a struggle for clean water and sustainability. It is a struggle to leave a planet in good shape for the generations to come. It is also a struggle for the sovereignty and treaty rights of the First Nations.
As the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe attempted to prevent the US Army Corps of Engineers from approving the Dakota Access Pipeline's permit to cross under the Missouri River on treaty land just north of the contemporary reservation boundary, a "Spirit Camp" of water protectors started in April to take a stand for clean water for the generations to come. (More details here on Standing Rock vs. Big Oil)
People in Standing Rock as well as about 18 million people get their drinking water from the Missouri River, downstream from the proposed crossing.
Kids and teens from Standing Rock took action and ran 2000 miles to ask the US Army Corps of Engineers and then President Obama to prevent approval of this proposed pipeline. The response was.... silence.
The lawsuit for a preliminary injunction to stop the pipeline from going under the Missouri was not going to be responded to until September 9th.
August 10th, 2016, construction was attempted on the west side of the Missouri River, on Standing Rock treaty lands, and water protectors stood in the way.... then thousands of people came to help.
This site is an attempt to keep a record of this powerful, historic, indigenous-led movement.
