Because of your donations, I was able to spend nearly four weeks at Standing Rock. I provided well-woman care, staffed a warm space for Water Protectors to process their bittersweet experiences at the end the movement, and helped with the massive move and clean-up that was necessary as camps were evicted.
I continue to be ever so grateful for the support I received and am in awe at the amount of generosity and awareness this entire movement has generated. It’s true that the camps at Standing Rock have been disassembled, but similar movements continue to spred like a glorious wild fire.
One of the Grandmothers I met at Standing Rock said to me a simple phrase that has been etched in my mind since I left. It has strengthened my spirit and I hope does the same for all of you...“We lost a skirmish, but the battle continues, and the war is far from over.”
