    Hey Donk,

    Walking your talk creates the respect I feel for both you and thunder24. This event is a game changer IMHO and I too hope to follow through with action as our support is imminent for the continuation of this movement and protection of water.

    Blessings and gratitude for sharing your experience and I look forward to hearing more once you have landed and had a chance to catch your breath.

    Must be your phone indeed, donk — or maybe the WiFi connection itself — because the News & Updates category is publicly visible.

    I do have some reports that came in yesterday from Mary Beth yesterday. They have to be edited and put into a video format. However, Shelley is in Hawaii getting her doctorate and attended a Pow wow there and got people from The Nez Perce and Souix tribes who wanted to send their blessings to Standing Rock. She also got a Kahuna grandmother for a some words and a chant.

    Kudos to Phil for being there. Yesterday got quite harrowing for Mary Beth but, cool heads prevailed on both side.

    I went with William Sanford, who I met on PA (and just recently outed himself that he was friends with me, we'll see how that goes over over there, I guess). We had been having long phone conversations for years finding so many parallels in our seemingly as different as you can get lives...he's an Iowa farm boy that was put through the ringer of drug addiction, night and day from my white bread upper/middle class suburban life. We just got to talking and felt called last week...the synchronicities have been constant since

    I was watching last night live on FB as the weird events of some car being chased but the authorities plowed into a teepee, very wild stuff but the strong medicine and cooler heads prevailed and like many dramas that emerge there have been smoothed over. The more victories that are achieved there, the more attacks and strangeness will ramp up, I feel

    Hey Donk. What camp are you staying at? My friend Mary Beth from GMoP is at the Rosebud camp. Who knows, you may have been seeing her at the 'protects' that go on when the caravan goes to a site.

    I probably saw her, that's where I was, one of the further camps, we actually abandoned our tent like assholes...rosebud is tiny and I only went to eat one meal, I spent a lot of time washing dishes for the hundreds that go to the main camp (across the river).

    It poured in the tent our last night there (we spent til 2am, curfew helping/hanging with the South Gate security ...we called it the south east Starbucks thanks to our friend Rod's neverending pot of gnarly-@ss cowboy coffee). I didn't have it in me to leave gracefully after grabbing our stuff, I would have dragged it out (if not stayed) but I promised William's wife I'd get him home that night

    There's a perfectly good (red/orange) tent, cooler (blue), tarp, and two metal chairs, please ask her to donate them to the camp of they're still there. It's near a lone willow not far from the bathrooms, directly across from the sweat lodge fire. There might be a bit of wood we left and I know there's lots of good kindling behind it

    I feel bad leaving a mess but I did bring a trash bag everywhere I walked, not to mention what I left can be used...so I AM sorry but maybe I came close to making up for it.

    Maybe she recognized us? We kinda stuck out like sore thumbs...

    I actually drove the woman who got bit by the dog a ways back (not sure how true but she said Anonymous gave them a list from a hacked database that she was #5 on, she liked to be called Black Shawl Woman)to the action I went to...as well as two Palestinians. If I wasn't on a list before...

    But there's a good chance she's seen us around camp. Rosebud is basically the driveway for the actual Sacred Stone Camp

    There's a chance she saw us I think, Rosebud is basically the driveway for the actually Sacred Stone camp, which is even tinier....across the cannonball river from the big camp, I can never spell it right so I'm not going to try...translates to "7 generations" When I get on a computer I will post some pics

    Our latest coverage:

    We have a conference call from Hawaii and Standing Rock. Shelley is from Hawaii with three Grandmothers and Mary Beth is on a phone call with 5 Grandmothers. Each speaks their heart for water and life. Water is life.

    We apologize for two different signal strengths. Shelley had a powerful one she could not modulate and Mary Beth had a soft one she could not amplify.
