Donate to Standing Rock Sioux and fellow protectors?

The Camp of Sacred Stones was established on April 1, 2016 at the edge of the Missouri and Cannonball Rivers on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to resist the oil pipeline that will contaminate their sacred water. The Indigenous-led peaceful and nonviolent resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline (#noDAPL) has gathered about 4,000 supporters from hundreds of tribal nations.

Caroline Ward Holland and son Kagen Holland, Tataviam, will be making the drive with supplies to North Dakota around Monday September 19th.
