LEONARD PELTER’S 72ND BIRTHDAY AT STANDING ROCK

Standing Rock Camp

SONGS OF RESISTANCE

Free Peltier

Standing Rock Camp, Oyate Territory: Robby Romero and Joan Baez preform at Standing Rock Camp.

Today marks the 72nd birthday of Native American Political Prisoner Leonard Peltier.  Following the morning prayer ceremony at Standing Rock and leading up to the days action to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, Arvol Looking Horse, the 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota Nation, introduced Joan Baez and Robby Romero who both sang songs of resistance.  That evening Robby Romero performed again following heartfelt presentations made by members of the American Indian Movement, Leonard Peltier’s family, friends and supporters.

“I am grateful to have survived to see the rebirth of the united and undefeated Sioux Nation at Standing Rock in the resistance to the poisonous pipeline that threatens the life source of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. It is an honor to have been alive to see this happen with you young people. You are nothing but awesome in my eyes.

“It has been a long, hard road these 40 years of being caged by an inhuman system for a crime I did not commit. I could not have survived physically or mentally without your support, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul for encouraging me to endure and maintain a spiritual and legal resistance.

Again, my heartfelt thanks to all of you for working together to protect the water. Water is Life.”

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse… Doksha, – Leonard Peltier

GWICH’IN GATHERING 2016 ARCTIC VILLAGE, ALSAKA

NCS STANDS IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE GWICH’IN NATION

Since 1988, the people of the Gwich’in Nation have spoken with a unified voice to protect the birthplace and nursery grounds of the Porcupine Caribou Herd, the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil exploration and development. The Gwich’in call this Sacred Space “Izhik Gwat’san Gwandaii Goodlit”, The Sacred Place Where Life Begins.

In this era of record global warming and climate change, this year is an urgent time in the fight for permanent protection of the sacred birthplace of the caribou in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. We will celebrate and we give thanks to President Obama for sending the first-ever proposed Arctic Refuge Wilderness recommendation to Congress.

All Nations and friends of the Gwich’in are welcome.  This will be a time to meet new people and visit with friends and relatives, enjoy traditional foods, music, dance, and games, and keep the Sacred Fire Burning.
