About Send Midwife to Standing Rock

This ribbon was created by Katelin Halligan on January 25, 2017

Roughly a thousand people continue to maintain a presence near the Dakota Access Pipeline drill site on Sioux ancestral homelands. These Water Protectors refuse to leave, in large part because no one knows what will happen following Trump's latest executive order to expedite the completion of the DAPL. The fight at Standing Rock is far from over and the long-standing issues in which the movement is rooted remain unresolved.

AS OF FEBRUARY 2ND THERE WILL BE NO MIDWIFE TO STAFF THE MNI WICONI MIDWIFERY CLINIC AT STANDING ROCK.

Since October, the Mni Wiconi midwifery clinic has provided a warm, safe place for the Women Water Protectors and their families. The midwives have addressed a variety of issues, including urinary tract infections, yeast infections, painful periods, prenatal care, births, miscarriages; and the distribution of condoms, tampons, pads, diapers, and prenatal vitamins. All too often, the complex needs of Women within resistance movements are ignored, which is why the Mni Wiconi midwifery clinic is an essential part of the Standing Rock NoDAPL movement.

I am a Licensed and Certified Professional Midwife and hope to provide a smooth transition for the Women at Standing Rock by keeping the midwifery clinic staffed. In order to do so, I must leave on January 29th so as to arrive by February 1st. I will rent an SUV in Ukiah, CA, stock it with supplies from our local group – Mendo Stands with Standing Rock – and drive to the camp in North Dakota.

Estimated cost of transportation: $1500 (vehicle, gas, chains).
Estimated cost of gear for arctic conditions: $1000.

The medics and midwives have committed to stay as long as there are Protectors at Standing Rock.

Please help to fund my way to Standing Rock so I can bring care and support to the Women of this movement. Above all, please continue to pray for our water and its Protectors. It matters how this ends. Mni Wiconi...Water is Life

In gratitude and humility,
Katelin Halligan
