From the article "How to Talk about #NoDAPL - a Native Perspective"
"...when you talk about Standing Rock, please begin by acknowledging that this pipeline was redirected from an area where it was most likely to impact the residents of Bismarck, North Dakota. When Bismarck's population -- which is over 90 percent white -- objected to the risks the pipeline posed to their drinking water, their concerns were accommodated, and the pipeline route was shifted into treaty lands.
Please inform people of these facts, and remind them that our people are still struggling to survive the violence of colonization on many fronts. People should not simply engage with stories related to our struggles when they see a concrete connection to their own issues -- or a jumping off point to discuss their own issues. Our friends, allies and accomplices should be fighting alongside us because they value our humanity and right to live, in addition to whatever else they believe in.
Every Native at Standing Rock -- every Native on this continent -- has survived the genocide of 100 million of our people.
That means that every Indigenous child born is a victory against colonialism, but we are all also born into a fight for our very existence. We need that to be named and centered..."

If you think you can just sit back and go for a hike and sip your latte and drive in you car, then you can Kiss Super Natural BC Good-bye. I am not kidding, READ, WATCH & SHARE THESE VIDEOS!!!
Are you ready for this???
Children vomiting brown goo? Burning eyes, never being able to put your hand in the water because it's toxic...business losing money...millions being spent to (not completely ) clean up the deadly toxic dilbit. Listen to this video and the excellent points made in the videos below from the KinderMorgan hearing. Notice how it's KinderMorgan, before it was Enbridge...it's all so sneaky, in the Amazon it was Texaco then it was Chevron..they will always pass the buck and it is the children, our children that will suffer. This is the BIG POINT I want to make, the Oil Companies make money cleaning up the spill. That was demonstrated at that Exxon Valdez spill. Let’s not forget how much it cost to (not completely) clean the Kalamazoo. The current price tag is $1.21 billion (and rising), making it the most expensive onshore oil spill in U.S. history.
This is NO JOKE!!
I DO NOT WANT MY KID TO PUKE BROWN GOO!!
I don't want to puke brown goo and I don't want you too!
Look in this crazy world we live in, things have not been well thought out. Things get designed poorly and things get invented in a classroom or lab and then they try to apply it to real life with OUT ethics or truly seeing the big picture or the CONSEQUENCES when Mother Earth gets involved. YOU CAN NOT CONTROL everything...there's funding shortages, human error, climate change, the list is endless. We must stop the insanity, our children's lives depend on this. Our lives depend on this. Time is running out....I truly believe that if this generation doesn't turn things around it will be THE END OF HUMANITY!!!
And start praying and projecting today that it's a beautiful day because we need EVERYONE to come, from FAR AND WIDE to let JUSTIN TRUDEAU and CATHERINE MCKENNA and CHRISTY CLARK and KINDER MORGAN and all the other FOSSIL FUEL companies, that this is it!! IT'S OVER, we need and are DEMANDING alternatives. #Solar #Wind #GreenEnergy NOW!!
I want to end this post in a positive way, as noted horrific things https://tinawinterlik.blogspot.ca/2016/10/listen-i-am-outraged-you-should-be-too.html have been happening in Standing Rock with protestors being put in dog kennels and numbers written on their arms- something right out of Hilter's Regime and the Holocaust, I don't want to give in to Fear Mongering and I want to follow in the example that the beautiful souls in Standing Rock are leading with. They have asked for prayers and so here is my #PeacePrayerFlagProject.
Just spreading #Peace around the world. We need more #Peace
Feel free to share the #PeacePrayerFlags and spread #Peace amoungst your friends!
For a little more inspiration check this out. And this is a big part of it people...if we don't stop fossil fuels, climate change will wipe us out...IT'S OUR CHOICE! NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION!!
