TEN BUCKS FROM 930 PLEDGES -PROTECTING UNCI MAKA  visit www.oweakuinternational.org to give TEN BUCKS FROM 930 PLEDGES!!!!

We want to thank our generous supporters and allies who responded to the pledge to support Owe Aku in stopping the Keystone XL pipeline and other devastations from extractive industries.  We've been able to accomplish a lot over the past few weeks including well-attended educational and training gatherings at Manderson (Moccasins on the Ground) on Lakota land and in Ponca City, Oklahoma.  Gatherings will occur in Yankton and Cheyenne River in the next couple of weeks.  Thanks to Debra White Plume's direct action with educating and providing the facts to the people of Pine Ridge, the Tribal Council and Treaty Council have all passed resolutions to stop the Keystone from crossing Lakota territory.  

But we STILL NEED MORE FOLKS TO STEP UP!  The time is really now.  The public comment period is ending and Obama will have to make his decision on the pipeline soon. 


WE RELY ON THE ALLIES to keep our movement moving.  So far we have been able to raise $450 for our transportation fund BUT the Lakota Oyate is a big place!  With just TEN BUCK FROM 930 PLEDGES we would be able to accomplish even more, most importantly recruiting allies and supporters to this critical work for everyone's future.  

We are not an NGO, we do not have a 501c3, we do not get grants from any of the big mainstream foundations, few from Indian foundations, and nothing from non-Indian environmental organizations.  Our work is because of the support of our allies.  WE HAVE 930 PLEDGES ON THIS CAUSE PAGE.  TEN BUCKS FROM 930 PEOPLE would be a major resource in funding our work.  If you can give $10 please visit www.prairiedustfilms.com (http://www.prairiedustfilms.com/)and use the "make a donation" button on the right.  Prairie Dust Films has the capacity to accept the donations for us and 100% of that sum comes directly to us.  Prairie Dust has worked with Owe Aku for years and is a major resource to the Lakota Media Project that trains our young people.  If you have any questions or comments also feel free to contact me, Kent, personally at [email protected] (mailto:[email protected]) or 646-233-4406.  BUT PLEASE HELP ANYWAY YOU CAN! Wopila.  Hecetu.
