Two big points to share re: the travesty at Standing Rock this month: 1) There are many indigenous land rights struggles around the world today. In probably all circumstances, the interests of big business or big investment require commandeering a native peoples' homelands. This is generally done in ways that destroy traditional livelihoods and means, often leveraged with violence and coercion, even murder. Rarely are indigenous peoples treated with respect by the people wanting their lands or their lands' natural resources. Regardless of your perspective on this injustice, it's important to remember: indigenous people are humanity's best environmental stewards, and we need them to protect the Creation itself. 2) Since eviction by force last month, efforts to protect the Standing Rock Sioux's sacred lands and water have been in regroup mode, generally occurring offsite.  

Here is are a few of the important articles since last month's update:
