I have been really connected with my last year involvement at Standing Rock as of late. The revelations I had had, the people I had the honor to call family, the aroma of the always protected and burning Sacred Fire. It's all still raw in my heart and my love for the people and the land burns in my veins as it had a year ago. I will never forget the dull hatred in one of the police officer's eyes as he lifted his baton. I will never forget the tears of the officer who dropped his badge, walked across the police barricade on the bridge to join us, and cleansed himself in the water we loved so much. Or the feeling of the cold air brushing against my face as I clung onto the back of a fellow warrior's truck. Or the love from my elders who accepted me, fed me, and healed the trauma I had carried with me to camp from even before my commitment to Standing Rock. Or the laughter we warriors shared when we rode back to safety with mace burning on my lips and milk of magnesia poured down our eyes.
My warrior heart was healed and turned into something beyond gold. It strengthened with the bonds of the tribes who united together to fight, with the love from my medicine friends cleansing my mobile home from the negativity and evil with palo santo and sage bundles, with my brothers and sisters who stood behind me and pulled me back to safety when the police officers tried to snatch me, their love and our trust with each other to keep us protected, with the food that was prepared everyday at multiple locations to feed the frontline warriors and long-term camped-in brothers and sisters, with the mutual love and respect for honoring our elders, women, and children during prayer circles and feast, and so much more.
I feel honored to have been given such love and to have been able to trade the warmth of healing with my fellow warriors at camp. With the thousands of us who binded together, I will always work toward being better in spirit, in body, and in action. Thank you, Oceti Sakowin. Thank you, Turtle Island. Thank you. I will forever carry you in my heart and I will forever protect our Mother. 💧🌙🌎 Nahongvita. My spirit with rise with the words "MNI WICONI" forever.

1 year ago my boys an I headed out to Standing Rock, for our 1st trip of several, to stand with our people in prayer, ceremony, direct action and brought a truck full of supplies ( 3 winter tents, food, blankets, etc...) I truly miss #ocetisakowincamp
