RAPID CITY, South Dakota -- Every Friday for the past two years our community Oyaté has provided a meal for our houseless relatives hosted by the grassroots organization OyateKin ChanteWastepi. The Mni Luzahan Patrol, have been foot patrolling the Rapid Creek since this summer, because in August there were eight Indigenous homicides in our city and two were houseless relatives sleeping by the creek. And just this week we had two houseless Indigenous relatives die sleeping outside.

MNN. Oct. 17, 2020. We are extensions of our ancestors. We are survivors of a treacherous road which we will never forget. We want peace according to the kaianerekowa, the great peace. Form and sound work together to show us what peace is like. The invaders stopped our connection to our people, land and environment. We are part of dimensions which the invaders can’t see. We’ve thought about removing the invaders. But we see they are taking themselves out.
