Dec 8 am Dine’ Warriors for Standing Rock Update: our Dine’ Warriors did not get into Colorado Springs until 4:30 this morning. The drivers have said they will not get on the road until 1:00 pm, which will push our Welcome Home gathering/potluck into the late hours, even past 9:00. Nevertheless we will be here for them, they represented us at Standing Rock; we will show our appreciation. Certainly we will ask the drivers and their coordinators if they would consider leaving earlier, I will post at noon with any time schedule adjustments. If families from Chinle area and other locations can arrange rides to pick up your Warriors in Shiprock, we will help with gas to get you home.
As I reported 3 of our Warriors stayed at Oceti Sakowin, they made a personal and courageous decision that we respect and honor. I am asking to know how many of our Dine’ remain there in the brutal winter, I know Graham and some of his cohorts are still there and don’t expect to leave camp any time soon. There are comments that were made about why did our Warriors go for only a couple days, why not let some of them stay there to support the Oceti Sakowin for the long term, as we know this thing ain’t over. That is a difficult matter to think on, particularly when we hear the Chairman saying “thank you but you should go home”, this is said partly for the safety of the people and that is appreciated. Then we hear from determined Warriors who declare that they will not leave until the pipeline is dead.
The main objective of our Dine’ Warriors in the last couple of days was to have some of our Veterans stand with their comrades on December 05 and that was done. Many left their jobs and their family responsibilities for only a few days and weren’t prepared to stay an extended amount of time. We should not question ‘how much’ we are committed we each are; we are committed because it’s a matter of life, the realities is we all have our own life responsibilities, our hectic work and many times difficult life situations. There is much to be discussed on this, but for now we must celebrate our Warriors who return to their homelands tonite.

Standing Rock Reservation, Oceti Sakowin Camp. North Dakota—Our first concern issafety. We ask all who can and want to leave, to return home. We are especially concerned for elders, families with children, those with health concerns, and/or pets that aren't acclimated. For those who can stay—and are prepared for arctic conditions—please do, we need people here. The Lakota/Nakota/Dakota people of The Great Sioux Nation have survived in these conditions for thousands of years. If Ally Protectors cooperate with the ancient wisdom and ways of these lands, we will fare well. This movement is unlike any other—it is prayerful as well as peaceful—the consciousness we have raised here continues to resonate across the world.
Secondly we ask this of you in order to conserve resources. Bringing in wood, and other essential life supporting goods, is now much more complicated. For those who want to come, be prepared for arctic conditions, we can't stress this enough. Be ready to contribute to the survival and safety of the camp in a significant way daily, be abundant in spirit and ready to share. Bring wood, plan to work. We need cooks, medics, builders/repair-persons, people dedicated to the survival of the community, for the coming storms. Bring weather-ready vehicles, 4x4 trucks and trailers, snow-ready vehicles.
Oceti Sakowin Camp remains determined—to protect our land. We have been given the obligation to do so in the treaty of 1851—we were specifically asked to protect this river. This is the way of the Standing Rock people, the Lakota people, the Hunkpapa people. All of the seven tribes of The Great Sioux Nation have gathered here again in an historic way—once as former enemies, we now stand together as brothers and sisters.
We are not protestors.
We are not terrorists.
We are not rioters.
We are in fact, Protectors.

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."
