The Inyan wakankagapi otip-Sacred Stone Camp from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is partnering with the Oectc Sakowin- Seven Council Fires, Indians and Cowboys and anyone who wants to stand against the Dakota Access Pipeline. This pipeline would cross the Missouri River and Cannon Ball Rivers– the life lines to many tribes and non-natives. When this pipeline leaks, it will destroy the water and land. Water is life. We are asking for financial support for water-food and blankets for the camp. This is a prayer camp movement to save our sacred land and water. It has been entirely supported by the people and the campers. Wopila lila tanka– we are deeply grateful for you contributions thank you!
Women of Color Speak Out on “Climate Change and Systems of Oppression”. We connect capitalism, colonialism, racism and the prison industrial complex to climate change. We will discuss subjects of war, corporations, banks, slavery, private prisons, poverty, and white supremacy.
Women of Color Speak Out are four Seattle local climate justice activists: Sarra Tekola, Afrin Sopariwala, Yin Yu, and Zarna Joshi. They were at the forefront of the Shell No protests and have presented at community center, women prison, universities and high schools. Members are associated with various environmental justice grassroots collectives such as Got Green and Rising Tide Seattle.
