True Roots: A Benefit Show for the Water Warriors
On April 1 2016, the Standing Rock N/L/Dakota Nation (Cannon Ball, ND) set up the Iyan Wakanya Gagnapi Oti/Camp of the Sacred Stones to build community, pray, and defend their territory from the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).
The DAPL is proposed to transport as much as 570,000 barrels of crude oil per day from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota crossing the Missouri River twice, through Standing Rock reserve lands and sacred sites, on to South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois.
The pipeline route threatens sites of historical and cultural significance to many Northern Plains tribes, including the Lakota, Dakota, Mandan, Arikara and Cheyenne.
It’s time for Minneapolis to show solidarity and connect our struggles to stand with indigenous communities fighting the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure.
*Raise at least $1500 and supplies for the Standing Rock Spirit Camp and Land Defenders
*Raise consciousness in Minneapolis about the struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and to mobilize people in our city to fight genocide and support land defense struggles in Minnesota.
Donations and ticket sales will buy supplies for the blockade including tipi poles, a motor boat, and firewood.
