NOW! Spirit Camp going up to Block Dakota Access Pipeline! March 29th, 2016 Spirit Camp Press Contact: Media contact personnel, Dakota Kidder, firstname.lastname@example.org , 701-329-9311. Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Tribal Historic Preservation Office Section 106, LaDonna Bravebull Allard, 701-854-8645. Dutch translation by Alice Holemans NAIS, Censored News http://www.denaisgazet.be/nieuws/dakota-standing-rock-spirit-camp-zullen-dakota-acces-pijpleiding-stoppen French translation by Christine Prat/Censored News http://www.chrisp.lautre.net/wpblog/?p=3318 Tribal Citizens Rise Up Against Bakken Oil Pipeline Horse Ride and Spiritual Camp To Be Held Along Proposed Route of Dakota Access Pipeline Cannonball, North Dakota – On April 1st, 2016, tribal citizens of the Standing Rock Lakota Nation and ally Lakota, Nakota, and Dakota citizens, under the group name “Chante tin\’sa kinanzi Po” will have a Horse Ride to celebrate the founding of a Spirit Camp that will be erected along the proposed route of the bakken oil pipeline, Dakota Access. This camp will be called I ya Wak a api Oth , translated as Sacred Rock, the original name of the Cannonball area. The Spirit Camp is dedicated to stopping and raising awareness of the Dakota Access pipeline, the dangers associated with pipeline spills and the necessity to protect the water resources of the Missouri river. Chante tin\’sa kinanzi Po is a grassroots group with the following mission statement: “They claim this mother of ours, the Earth, for their own use, and fence their neighbors away from her, and deface her with their buildings and their refuse.” – Chief Sitting Bull. His way of life is our way of life–standing in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline is our duty. Group: Chante tin\’sa kinanzi Po translates as People, Stand with a Strong Heart! Spirit Camp Name: I ya Wak a api Oth translates as Sacred Rock Camp Both are in the Lakota language. Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), owned by Energy Transfer Partners, L.P., is proposed to transport 450,000 barrels per day of Bakken crude oil from the lands of North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois. The threats this pipeline poses to the environment, human health and human rights are strikingly similar to those posed by the Keystone XL. Because the DAPL will cross over the Ogallala Aquifer (one of the largest aquifers in the world) and under the Missouri River twice (the longest river in the United States), the possible contamination of these water sources makes the Dakota Access pipeline a national threat. The construction of Dakota Access will threaten everything from farming and drinking water to entire ecosystems, wildlife and food sources surrounding the Missouri. The nesting of bald eagles and piping plovers as well as the quality of wild rice and medicinal plants like sweet grass are just a few of the species at stake here. We ask that everyone stands with us against this threat to our health, our culture, and our sovereignty. We ask that everyone who lives on or near the Missouri River and its tributaries, everyone who farms or ranches in the local area, and everyone who cares about clean air and clean drinking water stand with us against the Dakota Access Pipeline! QUOTES: Waniya Locke (Ahtna Dene, Dakota, Lakota, Anishinaabe) Standing Rock Descendent states: “We do not need oil to live, but we do need water, and water is a human right and not a privilege.” Virgil Taken Alive, Standing Rock Member states: “Of the many atrocities we as Native Americans have faced and overcame, this is one which will affect not only us but all of mankind. Earth is our mother. We have to protect her.”. Joye Braun, community organizer on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation states: “The dangers imposed by the greed of big oil on the people who live along the Missouri river is astounding. When this proposed pipeline breaks, as the vast majority of pipelines do, over half of the drinking water in South Dakota will be affected. How can rubber-stamping this project be good for the people, agriculture, and livestock? It must be stopped. The people of the four bands of Cheyenne River stand with our sister nation in this fight as we are calling on all the Oceti Sakowin or Seven Council Fires to do so with our allies, both native and non native in opposing this pipeline.” Paula Antonie, Chair of Shielding the People, Rosebud Sioux tribal citizen, states: “The DAPL poses a threat to our people, cultural and historically significant areas. We will stand with our Hunkpapa relatives in defending against any major environmental, public health and safety hazards within our treaty territory.” Dallas Goldtooth, Keep It in the Ground Campaign Organizer for the Indigenous Environmental Network states: “This bakken pipeline is no different than the Keystone XL pipeline. It threatens the sacred waters of the Missouri, it threatens the very sensitive waters of the Oglalla aquifer, itt is using eminent domain to diminish the rights of farmers and ranchers, and it is attempting to lock our country into more fossil fuel dependency when we are seeing a just transition towards renewable energy. We must keep this oil in the ground for the benefit of all future generations.”
Photos by Carl \’Bad Bear\’ Sampson, Western Shoshone Sacred Peace Walk to Nevada Test Site Article by Brenda Norrell Censored News Walking in prayer, the Sacred Peace Walk began at the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas and continued through traditional Western Shoshone homelands to the Nuclear Test site. “The Nuclear Test Site is on Western Shoshone land, under the 1863 Treaty of Ruby Valley,” said Western Shoshone Buck Sampson, whose son Carl walked on the 60-mile annual walk this week. “This is what I learned back in the \’80s, Sundancing. Every step is a prayer, and every prayer is to the Creator, Sundancing in the old ways,” Buck said. The Sacred Peace Walk concluded with a sunrise ceremony and prayers by Western Shoshone Spiritual Advisor Johnny Bobb. “Johnny Bobb is the leader for the Indian walkers,” Buck Sampson said. Buck said Johnny Bobb is responsible for issuing permits to non-Indians who cross the boundary into Western Shoshone territory of Yucca Mountain. Johnny Bobb serves as Chief of the Western Shoshone National Council. Sacred Peace Walker Carl \’Bad Bear\’ Sampson has walked on the Native American Longest Walks 2, 3 and 4 across America and documented the walks as a photojournalist for Censored News. “Walking on these walks is praying. Prayer is knowledge and knowledge is power,” Carl said. Atomic Testing and the United States Disregard for Human Life The US Nuclear Test Site is a harbinger of horror which resulted in global atrocities and mass destruction for mankind. Further, Western Shoshone, US military, and Southwest residents were exposed, unprotected, to radiation and fallout. Above ground nuclear testing began here in the early 1950s. The mushroom clouds became a symbol of the widespread disease and death that resulted. Those images were a symbol of the United States disregard for all life, including the Western Shoshones, whose land, water and air were poisoned with radiation. Sacred Peace Walkers walked in prayer to sacred Yucca Mountain, where the Nuclear Test Site is located. Yucca Mountain was targeted earlier for a US nuclear waste dump. The Sacred Peace Walk offered prayers of healing and prayers for the unity of mankind. Western Shoshone Carl \’Bad Bear\’ Sampson, shown in the photo with the buffalo above on the Sacred Peace Walk, has provided Censored News with photos of the Longest Walks 2, 3 and 4 as he walked across America.
