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

Sanctioned Actions of Prayer & Love at Turtle Island in North Dakota

There were three actions, one was an action at the “Bridge,” another at “Turtle Island” & “a drill,” in case the camp was invaded.

The private security force, military & police were divided, there was only a small force at Turtle Island. The intent there was to put a small bridge across so people can cross the river, to pray in this sacred place. The military & police lacking the numbers at this sacred place, that looked like a large turtle, were threatening to use live ammo! It was authorized by the governor to do so, so it was their call. When I heard this, I knew that is where I was needed the most. Fully intending to be a shield, to protect the others, I was ready to die that day.
