Completing this project has been important to me because HISTORY IS WRITTEN BY WINNERS. Those who have championed the protection of sacred and natural resources have paid a price. Their sacrifice deserves recognition, respect and the embrace of a future generation.

A poster is a collectible memory. It has a physical lifespan of 30-40 years. It speaks to an uncertain future and it continues to speak when we are gone.

Individual, and families who have supported the fight and stood against the Black Snake, will be gathered once again, to stand on the back of a WATER IS LIFE Poster. Their names will be printed and they will bear witness to the legacy of our Standing Rock.

We are compiling consent and you can monitor the progress until May 10th.  Please share this far and wide. Help gather the many who have made the difference but unaware of this poster.

Thank You!
John Chao

  8. I submitted my names of people who were with me St Oceti Sakowin for seven month’s and we weren’t on the poster! Winona Kasto, Abe Kasto, Grace Kasto, Seanacey Kasto, Noah Kasto, Severt Young Bear, Saunders Young Bear, Karen Little Wounded, Joe Lafferty these are the one’s who were there at Oceti Sakowin camp.

    1. We had to discard that list because people were complaining that their names appeared without their consent. The names you see on this list are only of those we’ve gotten consent. Can you please give me a list of names that are aware and do consent to have their names published? We will insert into the list right away. Thank you Winona!
