As a One Billion Rising Coordinator in present day New Mexico, US, I offer my support and ask that you also support, The Inyan Wakankagapi Otip – Sacred Stone Camp from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and their partners, The Oectc Sakowin – Seven Council Fires, Indians and Cowboys and those who stand with against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

This pipeline will cross the Missouri River and Cannon Ball River, which is the lifeline to many tribes and non-natives. This pipeline will leak, in New Mexico we have had hundreds of “accidents” destroying life, water and land. Water is life! This pipeline is along the Missouri River and the KL pipeline was along the Ogall aquifer which are both important to save.

They are in need of $10, $20, $50, $100 for water, propane, food and blankets for the camp. This is a prayer camp movement to save the sacred land and water and has been entirely supported by the people and the campers.
