Wounded Knee 1890, Wounded Knee 1973, now this....when will it stop? Hopefully this ecological mess will at the very least be re-routed from the sacred lands, then it would be really great if we could re-route every human heart to the fact that we are all one family and we all rely on the earth for our survival. Not Native American, but on the brink of tears as I write this.
I'm with you! (I'm a mix Euro stuff, Maori, and hunka (Sacred Rite adopted) Lakota) ...
Mni wakan Sacred Water
Not the first time something has happened and water contaminated - this is a real threat of the tribe's water.
Lake Girl, I was just watching the youtube videos and thought "wounded knee" also.
and about the Artifiacts the DAPL Company neglected to report - which should stop construction.
and about the Black Hills, and the all treaties broken and/or not ratified by Congress, so so many .....
and how when those who were NOT supposed to be in the Black Hills were prospecting Gold there, the US Gov't decided they needed to protect the invaders not the people the land belonged to (per U.S. treaties) ....
and how unfortunate and horrible (and normal in today's society it is) that this didn't make main stream news around the country - except for there being arrests!
Prayers for the Water Protectors and all who support them!
Donations are needed for legal funds and fines (whether people are arrested allegedly legally or illegally) - THESE PEOPLE NEED OUR HELP HOWEVER WE CAN GIVE IT !!!!!!!
I love this country and I can't stand by or for this ABUSE of the People!!!!!!!!!!
