Arvol Looking Horse: Prayers as Eviction Approaches for Water Protectors


Chief Arvol Looking Horse
19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle

Right away I woke remembering our history of abuses we have suffered from the continued need from Mother Earth's Resources. My heart is heavy today, for what we are all facing together with tomorrow's deadline in the removal of the Standing Rock's Camps.
Today I would like to support my kola Mitch Walking Elk's call in the gathering of the people tonight at 7pm and send prayers together in the world for healing.
Because of the seriousness of this situation, I humbly would like to once again call upon all the Religious/Spiritual Leaders, URI and the People who traveled to Standing Rock's sacred fire on December 4th. (Sari At Uri) Pray with us at your own sacred places for Mother Earth, her Mni wic'oni (water of life) and the protection of our People who are still at the Standing Rock Camps.
We also need to remember healing for those who are making these dangerous decisions that have only ended up abusing all life.
I too will stand in the sacred place with our Sacred Bundle to offer prayers - if anyone would like to join me by bringing offerings to the Bundle, they are welcome - @ 2:00pm mountain time on Wednesday February 22, 2017.
Please pray with us where ever you are upon Mother Earth.
Mother Earth is a Source of Life - Not a Resource.

This rings true. Let our prayers, altogether, rise from a million whispers to the sound of waves thundering on the shore. And let us move forward like the tide. They think they have all the power but all their castles are made of sand.
