10 Ways You Can Help the Standing Rock Sioux Fight the Dakota Access Pipeline

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown September 7th, 2016 Last Updated on: December 27th, 2016

Follow our coverage from Standing Rock!

Everyone keeps asking how they can help fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline, since we all can't physically be on the frontlines in North Dakota. I've posted links to the Sacred Stone Camp Legal Defense as well as their camp GoFundMe page on previous posts already, but there are other ways you can help out! I kept seeing this list of 10 ways to help out on various Facebook posts so I thought it would be a good idea to share here too.

(I'm not sure where the original post came from or who the original author is, but please let me know so I can credit!)

1. Call North Dakota governor Jack Dalrymple at 701-328-2200. You can leave a message stating your thoughts about this.

2. Sign the petition to the White House to Stop DAPL: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-construction-dakota-access-pipeline-which-endangers-water-supply-native-american-reservations

3. Donate to support the Standing Rock Sioux at http://standingrock.org/news/standing-rock-sioux-tribe–dakota-access-pipeline-donation-fund/

4. Donate items from the Sacred Stone Camp Supply List: http://sacredstonecamp.org/supply-list/

5. Call the White House at (202) 456-1111 or (202) 456-1414. Tell President Obama to rescind the Army Corps of Engineers' Permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline.

6. Contribute to the Sacred Stone Camp Legal Defense Fund: https://fundrazr.com/d19fAf

7. Contribute to the Sacred Stone Camp gofundme account: https://www.gofundme.com/sacredstonecamp

8. Call the Army Corps of Engineers and demand that they reverse the permit: (202) 761-5903

9. Sign other petitions asking President Obama to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. Here's the latest to cross my desk – https://act.credoaction.com/sign/NoDAPL

I Stand with Standing Rock!

Norbert Schott

This is an unspeakable horror that the government is, once again, hurting Native Americans. And hurting & disrespecting Mother Earth. When will it end? We are destroying earth. I am in total support of the boycott of the Pipeline. Tho I am not Native American, I have been accepted into the culture many times, at many PowWows. My wife, dear Marian, who has’ walked on’ took me to PowWows. She was Native American.

I stand with Standing Rock sending prayers also.

We stand with you. The cruel actions of the police and Nat’l Guard are crimes against humanity. I will send financial support and if I can and if it is helpful, I am willing to go there. Let me know. Thanks for standing up to the Machine that wants to squeeze every single precious resource from the People to make profits. PLANET AND PEOPLE OVER PROFITS!!!!!!

Mitakuye Oyasin I promise to do all that I can. I wish this old Lenapé/T’salagi grandmother could be with you but I sure am in Spirit. I believe in you and SUPPORT you…wholeheartedly. As an Elder once told me…Greed vs Need in how we choose to live. Lots of Love, Prayers and Healing for all. We are the caretakers.


Many are doing the FB check in at Standing Rock. IS that helping or not really ?
