Standing Rock Medic Passes of Heart Attack


Standing Rock Camp Medic Bert Allen “B.A.” Naholowa'a passes to Spirit World 

GREETINGS FROM THE NAHOLOWA'A OHANA
On Thursday, December 8, Bert Allen “B.A.” Naholowa'a suffered a heart attack. He was outside of the gas station near the Prairie Knights Casino. He was there doing maintenance on his RV. He'd been in the area since roughly November 26th serving as a volunteer medic to water protectors at Oceti Sakowin Camp.
B.A. received first aid, and an ambulance was called to assist him. He was taken to Fort Yates Hospital. He did not recover and passed away that day.
B.A. was Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian), American Irish, and American Chinese. B.A. was a second generation Air Force veteran. B.A. resided in Arizona. He is survived by 4 children, their mother and their partners, 8 grandchildren, 3 sisters and a large extended family.
From B.A.’s family:
"We were regularly in contact with dad while he was volunteering at the camp. He was honored to be there and of service to the camp community. Thanks to all that made his experience a good one. He walked on in a good way. We are sure he is in peace.
The Naholowa'a Ohana is happy to receive visitors for B.A. at a visitation on December 13th from 11 am to 1 pm at Dawise Perry Funeral Home in Mandan, North Dakota. Later his ashes will be taken home to Hawai‘i for further services."
---------------------------------------------------
We express our deepest sympathies to B.A.'s Ohana and want everyone to know that B.A. left a beautiful lasting impression on all who he had contact with. We don't have words to describe the loss that those of us who had the honor of knowing B.A. are feeling; but we are grateful for the time we did get to spend with him - time well spent caring for the water protectors. We are also grateful that B.A.'s family could come to camp and hold a memorial service today. Those of us who were able to come were very blessed by the songs and ceremony.
We ask everyone to please give the family time and space to heal. We love you all.

I heard an interview with Chauncey Peltier, yesterday, stating they are using chemical weapons on Water Protectors, with their water cannons. Could that have been a factor? on Standing Rock Medic Passes from Heart Attack

My father passed away Sept. 12th of this year and it allowed me to be here at Standing Rock! It sounds like your father was a wonderful with a big heart. I saw the ambulances that day at the casino and whispered a prayer..... So sad for your loss but for him what an honorable place to die. He truly gave his heart to Standing Rock. I have my dad's ashes with and plan to place some on the land, when I do I will add your dad's in spirit. Thanks for sharing your father with us! May you enjoy his memory. Maybe in the spring we can plant a tree for him? We did that for my dad.... Mini Wiconi - water is life! on Standing Rock Medic Passes from Heart Attack

So sorry for your loss. He shall continue living in the next life, where he will make a difference in the lives of others. As so the cycle continues. I've never met B.A. in this life, but I feel as if we have met before, perhaps in a past life, as I feel so sad and am shedding tears. Love and light to you B.A., and to all of those who love you!
