With the stroke of a pen Trumps trying to undo everything we’ve worked so hard for but as indigenous people our existence is our resistance. We protect mother earth in the water because it’s who we are and we have another choice. I’m facing seven years in prison and yet I remain dedicated to peace and prayer. Pray with us. One family. If we don’t stand Who Will? One Earth The wind comes in four corners, four directions four colors. And death rides on four horsemen A black snake with some black tanks (ugh) How much money do these companies need to make? They could drive their product, but they want to save a buck. Already extracted billions when is enough enough? I used to be in the oilfields, getting paid. but I quit, because oil water I can’t drink. Looked down, and seen kimimila die in the mud. I looked up and told myself that enough’s enough. money does not own my soul living comfortable, is not in my plans my hands in the sand, some things worth more than gold. Some things they cant be sold. Some things can’t be replaced. She is your mother the fresh water is her veins. (Ugh) Turtle Island NOT Black Snakes The fresh water is her veins What is going on? Have we all lost our minds? Every human needs clean water to survive (Phone Call Interrupts) Morton county sheriffs department. Hi I need to report an assault Ok where did it occur at? Standing Rock There are innocent unarmed people being attacked with water and militia style police firing at point-blank range with high-powered mace on unarmed people. Who protects the people? Mam, yeah if there’s police there there then it has been reported. The police are the ones attacking innocent unarmed people, so what do we do to stop the police literally hitting people at point-blank range in the face. People could loose eyes, people are going to get hypothermia. People could die. We have elders here, we have children here. we have all ages here. Nobody is armed except for the police. Who protects the people from the police? (Awkward Silence) Well ughh, I guess if you want to ughh, put it up the chain of command the next person to talk to be the governor’s office Love is the strongest, This path is the hardest. but if we weren’t strong enough to do it we wouldnt see it Our prayers would not be needed this movement’s very needed. Indigenous wisdom unheeded, and sacred things depleted. I’m Mexicano, Ma Lakota, and I’m White to. Im mixed with everyone so part of me is just like you. Every group of human beings shares the same stars. And is the earth is not your mother are you from Mars? (laughs) This side of the plant’s been in decline since 1492. 500 years and counting. Surviving the genocide they call colonizing my Turtle Island. What is a fossil fuel? Continued destruction nothing new. Live in a system, Taking our children, Shifting their feelings till nothings true. I had that money in front of me money But I left it. Cuz oil money’s dirty if my mother gets disrespected. Were disconnected these times are hectic and feeling heavy. But still we love all living beings and suffer for the many. We are a peaceful people that’s why we walk with prayer And if that wasn’t true. We wouldn’t be standing here. We’re peaceful people. Who walk with prayer Turtle Island Have no fear Despite what they show in the media We’re kind people, Hold your ground. Change is coming now.
