THE STORY:

My friend, Nikki Wilkins, a Native American sister and fellow human is being called to stand with her family at Standing Rock Reservation, North Dakota. As you may know there has been a growing protest, since the Spring of 2016, of communities of indigenous peoples not only from the Americas but around the world showing up or sounding support. They continue to add to the number of people in solidarity for the protection of vital water from an invasive and destructive oil pipeline. Nikki is a mom, a wife, friend to many, a wise and loving counselor, caretaker, 7th generation healer and all-around badass. As the number of protestors and support grows for Standing Rock, legal avenues to delay or halt the construction of the pipeline have been effective only briefly and illegal and inhumane means of harassment and threats have been waged against the peaceful protestors who only seek to protect precious water. But yet they continue to stand strong in unity and in peaceful prayer. There is strength in numbers and, while we can pray from wherever we are, Nikki has a larger mission of gathering supplies and monetary donations to transport to Standing Rock. Winter weather is arriving but the peaceful protestors will remain as long as necessary. Critical supplies, clothing and food are needed to get through the long winter months. And more importantly, the light and strength of her physical presence. Nikki and her family will be able to hit the road when they have enough to fund the long trip and have plenty of donated supplies and other necessities to transport with them.  What better way to show gratitude to the people of our First Nations than to get them on the road by Thanks Giving?  In loving service, we thank you for your support.

What is needed?  The Wilkins will be taking as many of these things with them as possible!
