The WDUA traveled to the Sacred Stone Camp October 21st to bring supplies and build a greenhouse for our water protectors. We stand with Standing Rock.
|Testimonial from Chloe Maki (age 10)
|On Thursday October 6th my mom and I drove to Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. We went to support the Native American tribes that had gathered there. They are protesting the building of an oil pipeline (which) would contaminate their drinking water and that of eight million people living down stream on the Missouri River!
The thing that got me the most was it seemed like a HUGE family! Everyone was helping everyone else out. Between meals everybody was down at the kitchen sitting around the fire singing, laughing, and having fun! I love it there!
October 10th is traditionally observed as Columbus Day. Native Americans have chosen this day to celebrate a new holiday honoring Native Americans, it is called Indigenous Peoples day.

Driving down 1806 Sept 21st we see the beginning of what we will later come to find out is a massive police and military encampment.
