- Go To Standing Rock to Protect the Water:
If you can, go and stand with the people to protect the water. Now.
From Dallas Goldtooth, from the Indigenous Environmental Network::
"It is all hands on deck, relatives. We need numbers, we need you.
They are so close to the river now.
If you can make it to Standing Rock [w/o dropping out of school] make it so.
There is snow on the ground and 40 mile-an-hour winds. This is likely to continue.
Make sure you have:
-Your own transportation to camp, ideally with 4WD and snowtires.
-shelter/lodging for WINTER
-food, at least bring food for kitchen
-very warm clothing
-positive prayerful mindset
Mind you, we are asking for folks who are able to hold space, risk arrest, and follow local/ Indigenous leadership.
Also: We will not tolerate lone rangers, provocateurs, and individuals who cannot control themselves. This is a camp and movement grounded in the beauty of prayerful action. Drug and alcohol free space :) #NoDAPL

11/3/16: Are you on the bus or off the bus?
HERE IS A GENEROUS OFFER TO FILL CHARTERED BUSES FROM EVERY STATE (Note: Present status for these buses is unknown. We don't know what states are still looking for people to fill buses, and which buses are full, but you can still fill out the form and see)
This is for real!
Watch this powerful interview with Antoine Edwards Jr.
Transportation is covered! Priority goes to Indigenous folks first, if possible.
Wanted: People with strength and fire to hold the line, work hard, and stay for the winter.
1) Original free bus offer - Antoine Edwards Jr.
2) Where to input your totals of groups who need rides:
Important details from the above googledocs organizing page:
"The idea of this initiative is to get as many Native folks and Nations to Standing Rock as possible. If you already posted on Antoine Edwards Jr's status and you see other people from your state wanting to go, please coordinate with them and fill out this form together so we have less work to do. Non Natives may come but we are prioritizing Nations right now. We do not know when you will be leaving until we have an accurate number. The first state to get 50 people together will be the first to leave. If there are small numbers in a state, they will be the last to leave.
Standing Rock has HARSH WINTERS. 50+ MPH Winds , 6FT Snow Drifts, and -20 degree weather. Plan Accordingly. As of now, the weather is nice. Wont be this way for too long. We are currently trying to source Tipis to help us brave this winter. Still bring your tents but we will not just drop you here with no way to survive.
MAKE SURE YOU ADD YOUR EMAIL SO I CAN CONTACT YOU ON WHEN YOU ARE LEAVING!!!!"

11//16 Standing Rock - A Call to Action - Media Bridge Dispatch 4:48
READ THIS(by Eryn Wise)
"A few things:
- If you're coming to Standing Rock, bring your own camping/winter weather gear, book a room in advance (they book out FAST - prairieknights.com) or have a plan with friends/family when you arrive here. Supplies are abundant but should be reserved for protectors that live here and plan to be in camp longterm. Avoid zapping resources intended for those who live here.
- Don't fundraise to get out here if you don't intend to work hard/get arrested/contribute in a real way to this community. If you just want an Instagram photo or a legit Facebook check-in, save your time and ours. Donate to our funds and help the protectors on the ground make it through the day/week/month/winter.
- PLEASE don't show up and disregard the words of the people that are native to this land. Don't argue with elders. Don't blow off the rules. Don't go to the front lines without completing a non-violent direct action training (or 10). Don't yell at the cops - you get us in trouble. Don't spread your friend's ashes on our sacred fire (totally happened). Don't walk around with your crystals or totems or wands or anything like that and trip out the people who are here in ceremony, to pray in our peoples' way. We respect your right to pray in your own way but respect that this is our space.
If you're coming here, expect to be called out on any bullshit you bring with you. Expect to work hard. Expect to listen and learn. Expect to have your life changed because you're about to see what life is like for real natives. If you show up thinking this is Coachella or Burning Man, you're in for a rude awakening. If you want to pretend to be native and wear headdresses or squash blossoms, expect to get maced and shot at so you know what we, as indigenous people, live through each day.
We are being waged war upon for protecting the water. If you're gonna be here, don't just be here to be here. Open up your eyes and look the hell around. We're at work, in prayer and actively standing against a multi-billion dollar industry that wants us dead. Don't make us expend energy accommodating you when we're crying out for HELP.
We need assistance but we need self-sufficient allies and warriors. Please only come if you think that you can handle it and can handle yourself."

Also please READ THIS:
11/4/16 SSC: "We are swimming in donations that are not suitable for the times ahead. Unless you are sending quality winter gear that can withstand harsh North Dakota winters, please reconsider what you are sending to us. We do not have room to store any more gear that is not specifically for the winter. Please make sure that sleeping bags are sub-zero and tents are made for winter. We do not need clothing unless it is quality winter gear in good repair. Winter on the plains is no joke.
Please consult our website for supply lists and our Amazon wish list. Thank you all for your solidarity!"
