The Tatanka Oyate were called upon and gave us courage. Pilamiya Maske for your vision. Stay strong Water Protectors! Davidica Littlespottedhorse

The great bison or buffalo of North America is a very powerful symbol to American Indians. Though best suited to cooler climates, bison roamed virtually in entire continent.

The smaller woodlands bison and its bigger cousin, the plains bison were revered and honored in ceremony and every day life. To the plains Indian, our Bison Brother meant sacred life and the abundance of the Creator's blessing on Mother Earth.

The bison is powerful medicine that is a symbol of sacrifice and service to the community. The bison people agreed to give their lives so the American Indian could have food, shelter and clothing.

The bison is also a symbol of gratitude and honor as it is happy to accept its meager existence as it stands proud against the winds of adversity.

The bison represents abundance of the Creator's bounty and respect for all creation knowing that all things are sacred.

The chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe criticized law enforcement's "militarized" response to the camp and called for demonstrations to remain peaceful, but stressed that activists would not give up their cause.

"Militarized law enforcement agencies moved in on water protectors with tanks and riot gear today. We continue to pray for peace," Dave Archambault II said in a statement Thursday evening.

"We won't step down from this fight," he added. "As peoples of this earth, we all need water. This is about our water, our rights, and our dignity as human beings."

  47. American Indians' respect for the Bison Bull and Cow, which is clearly tied to the ancient Vedic gnosis of the unity of Spirit and Matter, stands now in direct confrontation with a civilization that has entirely disregarded the sacredness of the material world (the 'Cow of Plenty'). The militarized Dakota Access forces on one side of the confrontation represent the toxic, land grabbing, money grabbing, Earth defiling Ignorance of the lopsided ruling Patriarchy of our world. The Native Americans and those who are assisting them in their battle at Canon Ball, North Dakota represent the consciousness of the sacred union between Spirit and Matter. The Native Americans are demanding respect for themselves, for their water supply, for the Earth. They are not only peacefully demanding for justice, that humanity do BETTER.

  51. dee says:

    When the people call the buffalo to come the buffalo will come its Great Spirit telling them stay strong I am with you. The Buffalo people are a great nation almost destroyed. I see them coming I hear them they have come to show protection of the people to support their need for the water. Everyone knows the Indians are right on this issue unlike days of old killing Indians now will not be accepted or tolerated by anyone. When the animals come its gonna be tough on the greedy people trying to steal the water and Land.

    Donald Trump has been receiving thousands and thousands of dollars in campaign donations from the CEO (Mr. Kelcy Warren) of Energy Transfer Partners, operators of the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline. Trump's 2016 federal disclosure forms, filed in May, show he owned between $15,000 and $50,000 in stock in Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners. That's down from between $500,000 and $1 million a year earlier. Trump's form also shows he holds between $100,000 and $250,000 in Phillips 66 oil company stock, which has a one-quarter share of Dakota Access.
