Issue of fire being put out. The fire that was put out was the fire up by p.a. system. It was put out as the prayer was answered on the EIS and denial of permit. Another fire has been lit and with with a new prayer. As for the Seven Council Fire, it has been still going. So we are still here and staying till its over. We are still getting everyone into warmer shelters and better equipped for this winter.
Now the most important issue we've been dealing with is founder syndrome. It don't matter if you was here from beginning or just coming in. These camps are peaceful and prayerful camps. The establishment of our old ancestral encampment was formed and it's leadership with it. On how the headsmen were picked -- was by the camp they've been maintaining and by their people. We are only representatives of our camps at Oceti Sakowin. We are there until our chiefs come. Until then we are there to keep peace and protect the prayer. This is a time where we Lakota/Dakota/Nakota people can form our traditional governance and stand on treaty. So we will be standing our ground to enforce our treaties. Many have questioned our roles and actions. So let's clarify for everyone. Especially through ceremony we were given instructions and directions to follow. We have stayed true to those directions and instructions. It worked as the prayer was answered and got time to establish our original governance. Our chance to rebuild our nation in a good way for the generations to come is now.
We live in a time of prophecy and we need to come together now more than ever for the betterment of our people from all nations. So stay strong and stay frosty! We will make a better future together in solidarity and unity. Time to decolonize and be reborn as new people. So let go of the anger and heal. Then you'll see the fear you grip onto will disappear and you'll become fearless. Then we can stand side by side together and change the world as it is! So quit the confusion and frustration. Let it go as its time to become one heart and one mind. Hau mitakuye oyasin!
