Pinned post for January, just because, Winona LaDuke, as always, eloquent and inspirational:
Spirit said: "How long are you going to let others determine the future for your children? Are we not warriors?" When our ancestors went into battle, they didn't know what the consequences were going to be. All that they knew was that if they did nothing, things would not go well for their children. Do not operate out of fear; operate out of hope, because with hope, everything is possible. 1/25/17 https://www.facebook.com/WinonaLaDukeHonorTheEarth/videos/1221074831346297/

01/06 Chase Iron eyes: "People are staying at the liberated zone, Oceti Oyate, Oceti Sakowin, AllNations. North of the cannonball river is our Treaty territory. We own it, it is unceded. We have a birthright to be here, to hunt, fish, provide as nations do. It is going to flood so a relocation from low to high ground within the liberated zone is necessary. Some will leave. That is good. Most will stay because in our traditional dances you emulate the moves of a warrior: you can go forth, zigzag, and side to side if strategy is served but you cannot retreat. What would we retreat to? A life of indignity. We deserve our freedom, same as any other nation." 01/06 Chase Iron Eyes : "You must assert your Treaty rights, your inherent authorities. We deserve our freedom. We seek what all nations seek, liberation. Thank you brothers and sisters. For all of you out in the world. This is it. This is our time. Come if you can, self sufficient warriors." ~~Sha'tekaronhiàse : Fishing and hunting rights, their trying to keep us from eatin, if it can happen to me it can happen to you, Hotinonsonni and all the people of this turtle island https://www.facebook.com/shatekaronhiase/…/1227019487386285/
NEW 1/4/17 Today, water protectors are resisting the grand jury trial of Steve Martinez. Join us for a rally at 12:30pm at the district court house in Bismarck, ND. Grand juries have been both historically and currently used as repressive tactics to target activists and those engaged in political movements. The purpose of these grand juries is to create fear and paranoia, cause division, and manufacture prisoners of war. They are secret proceedings- but we are watching closely and support all water protectors to assert their rights and refuse to be intimidated by the state.
