Do not let the quietness in the Capitol City of Wisconsin fool you! The people from Madison are always creating an atmosphere of hope and strength, from the echos of the walls in the Capitol where the Solidarity Singers can be found, to the jingling of bells from a Santa without a Chimney and if you scurry outside around town you will see the OM Tiny Home Village and for the homeless. While MAMA (Madison Action Mining Alternative) is right around the corner spreading the word!

Wesley Clark Jr Apologizes to Leonard Crow Dog for US Military Treatment of Indigenous People

Clark Jr. began organizing the event on Facebook, and within three weeks had 2,500 veterans interested in participating. The vets began arriving at camp earlier in the week. Since the Standing Rock Sioux could only accommodate 2,000, Clark limited this event but is hoping that other vets will replace those who originally participated. In this way, Standing Rock water protector camps will have a constant presence of veterans to help protect them as they face the Morton County law enforcement and their violent opposition to their prayers.  Wisconsin Citizens Media Cooperative

I was blessed to receive an interview with Doug Goodfeather during my time at Standing Rock located on the Sioux Indian Reservation in Cannonball, North Dakota.

My video was featured at WCMC Coop Veteran Doug Goodfeather on CodeTalkers Youtube

“Maybe my grandpa saved your grandpa  ”
During the war, the CIA chose Native Americans to transmit vital information using their native language. The structure and tonal qualities were almost impossible for non-Natives to learn. Code Talkers were used in every aspect of the Pacific operations”

“Since last April, the camp has grown from a handful of Sioux to an expansive community representing over 300 tribes and various nationalities from around the world. It has also gone from a place of celebration to a war zone, complete with LRAD, rubber bullets, mace, snipers, dog attacks, helicopter and plane harassment, percussion bombs, road blocks, illegal arrests, strip searches, destruction of possessions and sacred items, tazers in the face, emotional trauma, and something called an “Active Denial System,” a machine that operates like a giant microwave, heating the skin of the targeted human subjects One of the pieces is showcased in  WCMC Coop called the Lakota Prayer.”

I have also been blessed with one of my videos showcased on a FaceBook page called the BlackSnake. The name “blacksnake” is part of the history of natives cultures and the stories of their visions and the 7th Generation
