From the Dakota Pipeline Resistance

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! 

In Spirit,

Sacred Stone Camp
