Currently on the Standing Rock Reservation in Mew Mexico there exists a conflict of weather or not to run a major oil pipeline underground that would most likely contaminate many precious fresh water sources for millions of people in North America. Without clean water, life cannot exist as we know it on earth. This pipeline will cross the Missouri River and Cannon Ball River which is the lifeline to many tribes and non-native, when this pipeline leaks it will destroy the water and land. Water is life ! So this pipeline is along the Missouri River and the KL pipeline was along the Ogall aquifer both are important to save.Many solutions have already currently been developed to allow all aspects of our present society to function without the use of crude oil. We wish to support the effort to prevent the pipeline by developing renewable energy sources at the reservation in order to demonstrate the lack of need for this oil. We support the indigenous in saving this sacred land by supporting those who are putting their lives on the line for protecting our mother earth and valuable resources that will be important for many future generations.
We are asking for financial support for water-Yurts, solar panels, medical supplies- food and blankets for the camp. This is a prayer camp movement to save our sacred land and water and has been entirely supported by the people and the campers. We are in great appreciation for all you contributions….Wopila lila tanka– we are deeply grateful for you contributions thank you!
