March 26, 2014 -- Members from the "CRST" Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe have spotted a huge Mega Load on their reservation homelands and banned together to stop it in its tracks. The truck driver was told to turn back and leave the reservation lands the way he came in and was in fact escorted off the reservation by tribal police.
Young and old folks and indigenous people have been uniting and standing strong to protect our beautiful Mother Earth.
Wopila to these grassroots people for standing guard and protecting their homelands.

There are so many things that will ensure a healthy Mother Earth for the next Seven Generations. 
One of the simplest and most powerful things we can do is pray.
So please show that you care for Mother Earth and our future Generations by joining us for a Water Ceremony and Prayer.
Afterwards we will have a discussion of future events. 
You are encouraged to to wear your regalia. Maybe you might want to bring a sign pertaining to the Water and or Environment.

Embrace Our Sovereignty or Continue the Genocide?

"The most consistent theme in the descriptions penned about the New World was amazement at the Indians’ personal liberty, in particular their freedom from rulers and from social classes based on ownership of property. For the first time the French and the British became aware of the possibility of living in social harmony and prosperity without the rule of a king." – Jack Weatherford, "Indian Givers"
Almost immediately, all that was known about society, government and social order had come into question for the Europeans who washed up on our shores half a millennium ago. Social order without a hierarchy? Equality? Even between genders? Unalienable rights bestowed to all by Creation?
