Oyate Wahacanka– Shield The People!
Keystone Tar Sands / XL Pipeline. Nearly everyone is familiar with these words and most have at least some opinion about what they represent. Those who are willing to sacrifice the very things which make life possible on this planet for personal gain, they mean fabulous wealth and power. For some, they only mean possibly saving a few cents at the gas pump. For others, who have studied the short and long term effects of what these words represent, a far more grim reality becomes apparent.
Please take this all in, share it, PAY ATTENTION…this affects all of us! It is not just about People in the path of this, it’s about abject greed poisoning our planet at any cost, profits over People and yes, the final and total destruction of Treaties with The People who belong to this land.
We are not the masters of this Earth, we are it’s Caretakers – and right now we are doing a terrible job.
Stand with the Oceti Sakowin and all First Nations Peoples, stand up for your rights as Human Beings, your rights to CLEAN WATER – for you, your Children, your Families, for Crops, for Animals, for Trees and Grasses, for Rivers, Lakes & Oceans!
