Your support will help the nation of Indigenous peoples of America to continue to fight for OUR water. For the future of your children and for us now, this is the time to come together and open your eyes and see that APATHY is not the way to a better future. We have to take control of our lives and not accept the way things are. We know in our hearts, that things are not right. Even more so than ever, this is our generations fight.

As there is barely any news coverage on this topic at all! Standing Rock has been a topic of discussion for the last few months. ….(Video from Sep.9th 2016)….

Resilience and strength, thank you to all of the nations that are standing up for us now.

The big oil pipeline companies have come to North Dakota to drill a pipeline into the land of the sacred, through the entire country. They originally were supposed to go from Bismark North Dakota, but had to change that because the community of white people refused and said it was too great a risk. Then the company decided to change plans and put that pipeline on Indian Land instead. Proclaiming that they indeed consulted the council, in which they did not. And have gone through with their plans on constructing it. The ripped through sacred lands (nothing new – all over this country that has always happened). The youth created the movement to peacefully stop this from going through now. This past week has shown violence inflicted from the Morton County Sheriffs office onto peaceful water protectors. This is so unbearable to see and believe that this can happen again in our supposed evolved society.

Unarmed Water Protector – Sophia Wilansky – (21 yrs old from NYC) Facing possible amputation of arm. Update from her progress….

Sophia was safely taken out of North Dakota for emergent surgery and is currently in stable condition. Below is her statement as conveyed by her father, lawyer Wayne Wilansky. “At around 4:30am after the police hit the bridge with water cannons and rubber bullets and pepper spray they lobbed a number of concussion grenades which are not supposed to be thrown at people directly at protesters or protectors as they want to be called. A grenade exploded right as it hit Sophia in the left forearm taking most of the undersurface of her left arm with it. Both her radial and ulnar artery were completely destroyed. Her radius was shattered and a large piece of it is missing. Her medial nerve is missing a large section as well. All of the muscle and soft tissue between her elbow and wrist were blown away. The police did not do this by accident – it was an intentional act of throwing it directly at her. Additionally police were shooting people in face and groin intending to do the most possible damage. Sophia will have surgery again tomorrow as bit by bit they try to rebuild a somewhat functioning arm and hand. The first surgery took a vein from her leg which they have implanted in her arm to take the place of the missing arteries. She will need multiple surgeries to try to gain some functional use of the arm and hand. She will be, every day for the foreseeable future, fearful of losing her arm and hand. There are no words to describe the pain of watching my daughter cry and say she was sorry for the pain she caused me and my wife. I died a thousand deaths today and will continue to do so for quite some time. I am left without the right words to describe the anguish of watching her look at her now alien arm and hand.” – statement from her father Wayne Wilansky

Unarmed Water Protector Vanessa Sioux Z

Vanessa has been on the front lines fighting DAPL and working security for Oceti Sakowin since September 11. During the action on November 20 at the Backwater bridge, she was shot in the eye with a tear gas canister  6 feet away.  It was aimed directly at her face by a Morton County officer. She was seen at Bismark Sanford hospital and released because she had no insurance.  She has a detached retina and needs surgery to ensure her vision. She is now seeking medical attention in Fargo. Donations will be used for the cost of the 2 ER visits, surgery, medications, and recovery.” – description of incident

What can we do?

As Teal Swan would say

“You do what you do, from where you are, with what you have and know. That’s what you do!”

this message has resonated with me tremendously, from Teal Swan speaking on our new president elect. ..

 

History is horrific, humanity has caused great pain and suffering towards it’s brothers and sisters. I am certain that some of us have evolved to realize that the way the system is, is not the way it should be. It is unsustainable. It is gearing towards a calamity of no return. We know that, and we know that APATHY will not stop it.

Here’s a new documentary on where the planet is heading, with Leonardo DiCaprio as our host.

We know to trust the status quo and continue on the path of greed and materialism is foolish. It is laughably apparent with what just happened in our country.

The time is now, tomorrow is not 100%. I am not preaching, I am only a small voice knowing that I can not contain myself anymore to follow this societal life path. We all know that, who are we kidding. We believe that we will lose our homes and food and money and jobs if we step out of them. Maybe we will, but the truth is (in my belief) it’s going to happen anyway. Better to choose to make a change and empower ourselves. Educate your children and yourselves.

aweeds01As I have learned to open my heart from bitterness, thank you my Breeze for giving me love and lifting the stones off my heart.

My life path has shown me great struggle and survival skills. Coming from a place with no parents and only the support of my Grandmother when she was able to be there. I have learned in life to keep to my books and art.  For the world on the outside was complete nonsense and I chose to avoid any interactions with it at all possible cases. I did not believe in what everyone was doing nor how they treated each other. I went completely into myself and kept on going until I found myself here in New York where I have been for the last 10 years. Without the pain and suffering I would not have achieved and learned the things I know now.

So, on that note. I will write from my heart.

I am grateful to the great many that are now opening their eyes and hearts to what is happening right now in Standing Rock. I absolutely believe in this generation coming in to be here for the great time of change and to assist us in bringing in the new age. I know, some of you may think this sounds completely crazy. But again, I am writing from my heart and my own personal intuition. Everything I believe resonates with my understanding of what is happening right now. Things have gone one this way quietly for a very, very long time. Now it has intensified. Now is the time for change.

On my annual Anti-thanksgiving post here, I write for all of the people who may or may not know me. This is what I would say to you, to give your some insight on this American tradition that is basically blasphemy to any Native.

To those who are from America, everything you were taught in your school books is wrong. Please do your research. There is nothing worse than someone who is certain of something with no actual background or knowledge of it. This is no holiday to celebrate. This is a day in which the Indigenous of this nation shared food with you and welcomed you into our homes. Then they proceeded to systematically wipe out the entire countries population of Natives. Otherwise known as Genocide. This is why today is a day of mourning. This is why I cringe when people tell me to have a Happy Thanksgiving. It’s like saying ‘Happy Holocaust.’ This is when, I quietly swallow my teeth and die a little inside. I mean, I can’t be rude and real or can I?

To those of you who are NEW immigrants to this country and were not born here. I welcome you, everything you learn from passing your citizenship is a lie. There is usually no mention of what this country was actually made from. They skip that part and go straight to Freedom from Britain! Yay, new rules new country yay! Welcome to land of the free! The real details on the how this America was built is hard to find and is actually skewed in such a wrong direction it is horrific. Hollywood doesn’t help. at all!

To make peace with the land, please acknowledge the Natives. They are not ghosts, they are not gone. They are here, and somehow have less rights than you do! Reservations are not a fun place to visit or gawk they are sacred. They are deemed by the government (still on record by the way) as Prisoner of War Camps. Yes, like the internment camps/concentration camps. yes all of that shit. Given land that the white people did not want or saw no resources in .

Blue Loves Grandma Petra

The Importance of Grandma Petra. (Petra translatation=Hard Rock)

Strong
Tough
Resilent
Caring
Cake!

Her love transcends. Caring for all that are near and dear is her number one duty. On call, on hand for all. How many cakes has she created? There is no joy in her life like making a cake for a celebration and creating a party. She has enormous love and graceful skills in large gatherings.

IMG_8563

I can only speak of my own life experience with her. She has been the guiding light in my childhood. It is safe to say without her & my grandfather -my brother and I would have been lost in the system. I don’t know how many other children she has raised. But my brother and I are definatley on that list. With her care and life lessons I have learned to also be resilent, honest, and hardworking. In most of what I tread in life, I think of her. Am I doing all that I can? Am I being lazy? “In her words, there is no such thing as being bored! Let me show you, what you can do….”

The abbey

Maybe this is going too deep and too new agey. But this is my safe space for words. But in my intuition and meditation, I feel like she has been in my previous lives. Perhaps in the last one we worked in an Abbey together. She has serious inclinations towards Nun habits. Dedication to serving others, minimalism and hard work. Delicate embrace and understanding of others. And she is just so darn cute and caring.

My heart is healing since I was last able to see her. Finding out she was in the hospital, was shocking. But it shouldn’t be, right? For anyone who is 79 years old, you would expect as much. But for her it was. Well, because I have never seen her lying in bed. I do not recall her ever being in the hospital! And she is my mother in a way. I am so happy that I could spend her 80th birthday with her. She had just woken up 1 day before. Previous to that she was on life support. The physical therapist that was moving her body, asked her if she wanted one thing for her birthday what would it be. She replied, “To make sure everyone is happy.”

IMG_8660I had to jump on a plane and try to get by her side while this was happening. I would not be able to move on with my life, if I did not try and be there. Well, because I can’t really afford to make a trip I had to come up with a way to help fund my travel. And that is where the gofund me campaign came in.

Grandma Petra has been a big supporter of my artwork. Since I was little drawing on everything, building things with her and learning to cook with her.

IMG_8584For her birthday in n 2013, I gifted her an American Indian Artpiece. There is nothing she loves more than spending time with family and sharing food.

Native Peace
Native Peace

This campaign is a way for people to commission me to make dolls. I have succeeded in traveling down there. With that money and my aunt giving the family a space to crash I was able to stay a few days. Everyday that I saw her she was getting better and better. The life support came off, she began recovering. In about a week she recovered as much to be moved to a rehabiliton recovery center. Which I think was really fast for what her body was going through. Now we take everyday into the next.

Thank you to everyone for all of your love and support. New Dollies coming up! If anyone would like me to make some for you, can can still select the options on the campaign.

In closing I will say that I am so happy that I could be there for her recovery. She is still in need of a long rehabilitation, but we are no longer in the grey area. What would you do for someone that made a significant difference in your life? What wouldn’t you do?

Just for the heck of it and the love of my Grandma, here is an embarrassing picture of me with my brother Mark.
