Have you been in touch with the news of the growing, resilient resistance of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe as they protect their burial grounds, sacred sites and the water from the Dakota Access Pipeline? In September, AFSC sent a delegation of six people who spent four days listening to Tribe leaders and  water protectors. That trip resulted in a report and action recommendations. On December 1st Friends Relations hosted a call with Jamie Bissonette Lewey, Abenaki, who shared her experience as part of this delegation, provided an update on the situation at Standing Rock, and offered suggestions for how those who wish to support this historic stand for the health of the planet can do so.
