We did not print the previous list that was compiled because there were many people whose names were submitted without their knowledge or consent. At the same time, the idea of having names on the back of the poster is valid and it is popular. It validates those who made their actions known and carry it in perpetuity.  It is another form of expression that Defends the Sacred.

Our original intent was to have a symbolic list to honor those who were at the camp. Understandably, a list with names of people where many did not choose to be named is no honor to them…no matter how well-intended it may be.  I am thankful to the many who spoke up.

This new list is open to anyone wishing to stand and be listed on the back of the WATER IS LIFE poster. It will express our inalienable right to free speech, the protection of Clean Water, to treaty rights and to resolve conflicts with love nd compassion.

We will gather 2500 names and print it in the next edition at the end of April. Deadline to submit your name is May 10, 2017. Those who actually stood at Standing Rock retain first rights to be listed. Those who were arrested or injured will be illustrated in BOLD. If you were, please make sure you are highlighted. We honor you.

If you’ve submitted a list, please contact each person and alert them to this site or, if they are not on the internet, you can submit for them by stating their awareness and consent.

Once we’ve processed all the past requests, we will publish this list for refinement and addition. You can opt in or out at any time.  Thank you for your support.

  1. In honor of the protesters, I would simply like to call out BNSF’s role as DAPL’s chief competitor. BNSF, the company who operates the train that carries oil from the Bakken oil fields to the Gulf, stood to gain millions should the pipeline be blocked. BNSF also had several major oil spills (10) in the year leading up to the decision to put DAPL in the ground. Either via train or pipeline, oil is being redistributed and exported for the first time in US history. This is likely due to OPEC seeking to flood the market with oil, driving down prices and US oil profits. So, the true fight, is to reverse this piece of legislation, no? I mean, both trains and pipelines result in mass ecological damage. The pipeline was actually brought in as a potentially safer way to transport oil, and, unlike the train, it only brings oil, instead of additional gas, coal and potentially radioactive material. I believe BNSF was behind a lot of the major direct actions against DAPL in terms of funding and organization. This is actually illegal.

    Another thing to note: Who sponsors PBS newshour? BNSF Railways (owned by Warren Buffet).

  2. Hey! My name is “Courage”

    I was at Standing Rock the entire month of September and October. I founded Two Spirit Camp which evolved into Two Spirit Nation and I was heavily involved in the kitchens, medic tents, schools, media team, direct action tent, Bismarck protest actions and also participated in some frontline actions. Thank you!

    Also FYI for anyone. I helped start a movement in Los Angeles called DivestLA that is aiming to make LA the next and largest city to Divest from a DAPL-funding bank (Wells Fargo) Please look us up and support us! We could be looking at 8 BILLION dollars!

    1. I see many people are offering proof they were there. My crew and I brought an entire, fully stocked camp kitchen which we set up and left in yurt village at Sacred Stone for Cheryl Angel’s camp. Let me know if you need more. And thank you for doing this.

    1. Thank You Kelly! You and your family are added. BTW, If you just signed up, your first message waits to be approved. Once it appears, your name has been added.

  14. Hey David,

    Don’t know if anyone else is able to, but I tried a number of times today to open the link and couldn’t. Anyone else out there have this problem?

    Also, can you please respond and let me know if my name has been added to the list of names for the back of the poster. I am one of the Veterans than went up when there was the call for the Veterans stand and march.

    Thank you kindly,
    Richard St. Gelais

    1. Your name has been added. Not sure about what link you are referring to. Normally when you’re first time poster, the message stays in the pending folder until it is approved. Just sent us a message in Contact Us if problems persist. Thank You Richard!

    2. It could be that we have a very stringent firewall for spam subscriptions. One of the factors is numbers after the name. The trick to bypass is to attach a photo during sign-up.

  15. I was at Standing Rock with my brothers and sisters. We brought 2 trailers filled with provisions. PLEASE add me to the list. Aho Mitakuye Oyasin
