THE STORY:

Every morning I wake up, I pray and give thanks for this life, this earth, and all we have been gifted. The gifts we all use (but sometimes take for granted) are shelter, food, and water. Right now, many Indigenous people and allies are fighting to protect the land and water needed to survive. I am raising money to support the Water Protectors in their fight to ensure the survival of our people by making sure we all have the resources we deserve as Indigenous people and as human beings. 

Last month, I was gifted an experience to visit Standing Rock. I taught poetry in the classrooms of Solen and heard many of the students write with pride and love about their homes, community, the camps, and the people protecting the land and water. After the school day, we drove with other teachers to the camps and I saw what those students were writing so passionately about first-hand. I felt the strength and love in those who walked around with smudge blessings those who sang songs of survival, and those whose determination and resilience moved them to stake their bodies against the power of greed and a legacy of oppression.

It was a powerful experience that I wish everyone could have. But if you can't make it there to help physically, because of obligations with family or work or because you lack the means to bring yourself here, then please help by donating to this campaign to raise funds for general support, to support legal fees, winterization needs, and any other needs those currently defending the sacred.

Can you support by donating 50 dollars today?
