Below is text to me from tribal leader Cody Tow Bears this morning in his own words:
Powerful day today at Camp. 10,000+ strong water protectors witness history. The Oceti Sakowin (Seven Council Fires) reignited the fire and has come together stronger than ever to stop this Black Snake; most I ever saw so far. 
Our tribal leaders and spiritual leaders where all present this morning.  We had ceremony to come as one and bring back the culture and prayer back into camp, plus the runners from Hopi came in running all the way from there tribe down south. 

Powerful day today to bring more energy to the people!

A Message From Chief Arvol Looking Horse

There are currently about 400 religious leaders who are already at Standing Rock in support of the action to protect the land and in protest of the proposed pipeline. At least Fourteen religious leaders were arrested yesterday. 

Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle, is calling on religious leaders from all traditions to come join young people standing in prayerful protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

“We are asking the religious leaders to come and support them, to stand side-by-side with them because the are standing in prayer.” – Chief Arvol Looking Horse

The protestors, who say the pipeline will disrupt sacred Indigenous burial grounds and threaten water supplies, are standing along Highway 1806, which leads to the pipeline’s construction site. Looking Horse, a member of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nations, said the police and National Guard are moving in on the protesters and he believes an influx of religious leaders to the area can help keep the peace.

“If you can find it in your heart, to [come] pray with them, and stand beside them…the Police Department and the National Guard would listen to each and every one of you,” he said.

“The hearts of All People’s faiths must now unite in believing we can change the path we are now on.”

Religious leaders interested in heeding Looking Horse’s call to go to Standing Rock can contact Johnnie Aseron at johnnie@attglobal.net or 605-545-4545.

Looking Horse is a member of the United Religions Initiative Cooperation Circle Protecting and Restoring the Sacred. You can read his full statement below or at this link. You can read URI’s statement of support presented at Oceti Sakowin Camp here.

Protecting the Sacred

Mitakuyape (relatives)!

We are now up against dangerous decisions that are coming from the disease of the mind. We are dealing with minds that hold no values of respect and honor toward another Nation’s Burials and Sacred Sites. Money has contaminated their minds to want the power to desecrate the sacredness of Mother Earth and allow my People’s burial places to be destroyed in order to continue to erase our culture.

As Keeper of this Spirit Bundle of my People, we as the Buffalo People – Pte Oyate, have been able to keep our ceremonies and way of life for 19 generations in tact, which every generation is 100 years. This Bundle has been with us for over 2000 years, which has guided us through massacres and hard times, even when it was hidden until the 1978 Freedom of Religion Act.

We have been able to keep our ceremonies and way of life for generations in tact.We have been able to keep our ceremonies and way of life for generations in tact.”

Tim Mentz –Tatanka Duta (Red Bull) and his family lineal knowledge are bound by this same woope – Creator’s Law. This knowledge is based on sacred oral history that dictates the word is sacred and stands in truth. Tim’s inherited knowledge in recognizing significant Sacred Sites holds the same value for our People as my position, this is why I am able to carry an Honorary Doctorate Degree from the University of SD. We both have been raised with traditional knowledge with the responsibility to protect and carry, on behalf of our People. A person that earns a Degree can never attain that same knowledge we carry for our People. The Responsibility that we care for is passed down and learned through our oral history.

For this Oil Corporation to destroy what Tim Mentz, a cultural historical Tracker, identified as our Burial Mounds and Sacred Sites, is a violation to the UN Declaration on Rights of Indigenous Peoples. This also violates United States’ own Treaty with our People. What has now been allowed to happen is a violation in the highest level of disrespect toward a Nation’s Ancestors. The support this Corporation has are Political Leaders who have given themselves the Power in their elected positions, to violate their own Laws they are supposed to uphold; as stated in their own US Constitution in how Religions are to be treated. Where are the Keepers of their values?

A violation in the highest level of disrespect toward a Nation’s Ancestors.A violation in the highest level of disrespect toward a Nation’s Ancestors.”

The hearts of All People’s faiths must now unite in believing we can change the path we are now on. We, from heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World to unite for our children’s future. Already we have witnessed many Nations of life are now dying because of contamination; those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, the plant Nation, the four legged and now the two legged.

What we are being faced with is a dark spirit. All life cannot afford to allow the same mistakes to be made any longer, look what is happening to the four directions in the contamination of Mni Wic’oni – water of life. If we do not actively stand up as Leaders and do Creator’s work in uniting our concerns, it will continue to be a domino affect that our Ancestors have warned about in the Prophecies.

This is not a competition of who will lead and who should follow, this is a very serious time we are in. I know in my heart there are millions of People that feel this is long overdue. It is time that all of us become Leaders to help protect the sacred upon Mother Earth – she is the source of life and not a resource.

In a Sacred Hoop of Life, where there is no ending and no beginning.

    I wish I could afford to stand by you all. I am not a religious leader but realise that physical presence and positive representation is so important. I represent Standing Rock in social media, in my everyday thoughts and prayers hoping that what I can do is making a difference. May your spirits be raised in unity and truth 🕯; Mother Earth has enough scars already and a 12000 mile gash is nothing more than a complete abomination based on mindless vices … I thank the warriors at Standing Rock from the bottom of my heart on behalf of our humanity ✊🕊

The Gunpowder Plot Is Thwarted (1605)

Angered by King James I’s refusal to grant more religious toleration to Catholics, a group of conspirators plotted to blow up Parliament and kill the king. The plot was discovered, and conspirator Guy Fawkes was arrested in a cellar under the palace at Westminster, where he had concealed 36 barrels of gunpowder. Under torture, he revealed the names of his coconspirators, and they were all either killed while resisting arrest or executed in 1606.

The Vestments Controversy

Arising during the English Reformation, the vestments controversy superficially pertained to vestments—liturgical garments worn by clergy members—but more fundamentally concerned the future of English Protestant identity, doctrine, and various church practices. The controversy stemmed in part from a debate about whether or not the wearing of vestments should be required during certain religious ceremonies.

Pope Francis Shocks World, Endorses Donald Trump for President, Releases Statement | EndingFed News Network


“I have been hesitant to offer any kind of support for either candidate in the US presidential election but I now feel that to not voice my concern would be a dereliction of my duty as the Holy See. A strong and free America is vitally important in maintaining a strong and free world and in that sense what happens in American elections affects us all. The Rule of Law is the backbone of the American government as it is in any nation that strives for freedom and I now fear that the Rule of Law in America has been dealt a dangerous blow. The FBI, in refusing to recommend prosecution after admitting that the law had been broken on multiple occasions by Secretary Clinton, has exposed itself as corrupted by political forces that have become far too powerful. Though I don’t agree with Mr. Trump on some issues, I feel that voting against the powerful political forces that have corrupted the entire American federal government is the only option for a nation that desires a government that is truly for the people and by the people.  For this primary reason I ask, not as the Holy Father, but as a concerned citizen of the world that Americans vote for Donald Trump for President of the United States.”
