LEONARD PELTER’S 72ND BIRTHDAY AT STANDING ROCK

Standing Rock CampOceti Sakowin Camp, Oyate Territory: Robby Romero and Joan Baez preform at Standing Rock Camp. Today marks the 72nd birthday of Native American Political Prisoner Leonard Peltier. Following the morning prayer ceremony at Standing Rock and leading up to the days action to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, Arvol Looking Horse, the 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota Nation, introduced Joan Baez and Robby Romero who both sang songs of resistance.  That evening Robby Romero performed again following heartfelt presentations made by members of the American Indian Movement, Leonard’s family, friends and supporters.

“I am grateful to have survived to see the rebirth of the united and undefeated Sioux Nation at Standing Rock in the resistance to the poisonous pipeline that threatens the life source of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. It is an honor to have been alive to see this happen with you young people. You are nothing but awesome in my eyes.

It has been a long, hard road these 40 years of being caged by an inhuman system for a crime I did not commit. I could not have survived physically or mentally without your support, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul for encouraging me to endure and maintain a spiritual and legal resistance.

Again, my heartfelt thanks to all of you for working together to protect the water. Water is Life.”

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse… Doksha, – Leonard Peltier
