Standing Rock Goes to Press


Because of privacy concerns, no List was printed on the back of the poster printed today.  A new list will be made to be included in the next edition.  All names on the NEW list must come with a request to be listed. Anyone submitting a name for someone else must have a statement that confirms their consent.

If you have already made a request, there is no need to do another.  (Special Warrior Purchase)

  1. Take this down! So many of the Water Protectors who were arrested never agreed to have their names published, and many still have pending court cases this could negatively impact.

    And no, “message us your name and we’ll take it off” is not acceptable — many of them will never see this to know, until it causes them harm.

    Something like this *absolutely* needs to be opt-in ONLY, not opt-out. You’re putting a lot of people in danger.

  2. yes my name is michelle tyon and my husband is steven tyon our names r not on there and we were arrested r people who werent arrested on there too i see alot of names of people who werent? just wondering

    1. The bold Michelle are both for people arrested and those who were hurt. Please clarify if you want to be honored here. I am not clear with all these people who stood against the pipeline and now hesitate to be honored as Water Protectors.

      1. You are exploiting people by doing this. Many did not give permission to be named, and you are not compensating them. Please stop.

      2. Noone who came to standing rock, no true water protector, would want their name listed in some kind of “honor” that way. It goes against the principles of being humble and not serving of ones own self. Our names are “Water Protectors” and that about as much as anyone needs to know. I suggest rethinking your desire to publish or desire to be included in such. Remember what you were taught. Why do you want your name there? If you were there and contribited, you know. Your loved ones know and your fellow warriors know. It undermines the ways were lived by at camp. We always stsrted our talks by saying ” I am noone special, I am a common person, I apologize to my elders for speaking in front of them and thank you all for allowing me time to speak.” No egos. No special recognition.

  3. Is this a joke ? Some names are listed twice SMH and why would you give the FBI more ammunition to use against us., this is not a smart move please think of a better way to honor the protectors

  4. You have no right to add our babes without consent. If consent was taken it was done so in ways we clearly did not know. I was there for observing.

  5. Please take down the list of names immediately! This is extremely dangerous to our water protectors to have these names posted online!

  6. I realize this is profit-driven and ill-conceived as I think about how the FBI going to cross check this document and use it however they see fit. I would want to be asked before my name showed up on a for-profit list that s being publicized. As a poster no less ! Some might call that paranoia, but have you noticed the times in which we are living?

  7. My name is Andre Nunez my Lakota name is Tatanka Ohitika Inajin Win. I was at camp for 7 months and my name is not on the list

    1. You do not want your name on this list…for your protection.
      From native attorney Tara Zhaabowekwe Houska
      “This is a dangerous, ill thought out security risk. The FBI is likely cross checking this list with their lists of names right now. Grand juries are active, indictments are ongoing.
      Anything for a profit, though, right? Smh.
      I didn’t consent to my name being used, nor did many others. I would strongly recommend folks ask for this to be taken down. Protect yourselves and your fellow water protectors.”

  8. You didn’t ask people before publishing their names. You are putting water protectors at risk. Please take this down. This isn’t right.

  9. I’m not listed. Been with this movement since 2016 and was also in Washington DC. I love what you guys have done. Thank you.

    1. And the protesters endangered many live with posting the names and addresses of law enforcement and National Guard . Threatening to kill and rape their families. Apparently you support that. Otherwise you would have you would have complained then.

  11. Yeah, great intentions but not smart at all or even respectful to use others names without getting their consent. Please remove mine, not cool at all.

    1. These morons need to understand that they government has been tracking down water protectors and either inventing new charges.

  12. I was there all of Nov, helped build the composting toilets, I took a rubber bullet on the bridge Nov 20th, left Dec 10 and went to Texas, came back again for the month of Feb to help clean up.
    Please add my name if possible.

  13. My and my husband’s name isn’t on there. We were there three times delivering donations. The last time was December 5-9 during that storm that wouldn’t end. We are proud to stand with and for Standing Rock.

    1. Every person that ever posted on Facebook about standing rock could be targeted. If you used your debit card at the casino or in the area during your stay and it is obvious you traveled there…. Same with that. To think that we aren’t on their lists already is kinda silly. And since when were we all so afraid of our identities being known? Stand tall and say fuck their system. When we live out of fear we accomplish very little. This list is no proof of anything unless you were arrested. And if you were….. You’re already on their list. It had Peltier’s name on it. He sure as hell wasn’t there. He was in a prison cell.

      1. I wish people stop operating from fear. This list ist to stand in solidarity against fear and be honored for what we stand for.
        Together we stand, divided by fear we fall…

        1. Not fear asshole
          You didn’t ask.
          Any money you make is going to lawyers from all the lawsuits and damage.
          Recognition is between me and the creator
          Take my name off this list
          You didn’t think this through, did you?

          1. Peter, the heart does not think it acts. But fortunately, this flory of activities has heightened awareness and we did not print the names on the back and will hold it for the next edition. We will still print a version where those who want to be remembered and stand with WATER IS LIFE can be honored. But they will have to request to be there and no more names submitted by others. Hope you can understand that we only want to do what is right and honor the Maker. We will set up this site where people can come and request to me on the list. I hope you will stand with us for posterity. 10-20 years from now, when this becomes history, you will be glad.

  14. To all you beautiful Water Protectors,
    all you who prayed and sent support,
    and the good souls creating this comemoration to our mission…
    Thank you.

    1. Not native to this land but from our East Asia origins. Proceeds goes to fund future projects such as this. We do not take donations but sell art to fund and contribute.

  15. My sister was there for months, helped build and repair things in the winter, was injured on the front line from rubber bullets, and arrested.

  16. Greetings. My name is Sarah D’Agostino and I was at Oceti Sakowin for November and New Years. If possible after seeing this amazing work I was hoping to be added to said list. Thank you for all your hard work.

  17. Is it too late to add names? Sean Haley, Sadie Redinger, Jean-Pierre Giagnoli & Danielle Giagnoli – Water Protectors/ Prayer Actions/ Supply Runners from California to Oceti. Thank you 🙂

  18. My name is Renée Roman Nose, not Renee RomanNose. I’m not convinced this is the best thing to do in light of the legal issues many are facing, but I’m sure I’m already on a fed list, or two, anyway, so I’d appreciate it being corrected.

  19. Hi, I was a water protector at Oceti Sakowin for the month of November and I returned for new year’s eve. I would be honored to have my name included on the list (if possible as displayed in my signature). Also, I noticed you have Sioux Z on there twice (once in bold).
    Thank you,
    Fallon Alexander (Quinn)

  20. Beautiful Poster. My names not on it though I signed a note book and fabric banner in September. I know I was there and have the memories in my heart forever.

  21. I’m not listed there either after two stays (I only signed in at legal) I don’t care about recognition…. just hoping to give a more honest perspective of how many worked at camp and want to represent …
    Near two spirit camp…..

  22. Will there be additional updates? If so, please add Beth Brown, Alleen Brown, and camp announcers JD Goodhouse and Craig “Huggy Bear” Tsosie.

  23. Jessica Browder
    Brought supplies and made the call to get the kitchen up in September. Such sacred and amazing lessons I learned.

  24. My name isn’t there 🙁 I even brought the resolution after lobbying to get Cleveland Ohio to support the Water Protectors and presented it to SRST (including Archambault)… I fought very hard and still am in Dupree helping CRST…. Please include me <3

  25. Bobby Wilson
    Dallas Goldtooth

  26. Where is this money going? Again another raising Money on the behalf of Standing Rock, yet no funds have been donated.

  27. Sage, don’t know if you’re joking. But, please reconsider. I had such a feeling of pride for each of you when I opened this post. You started something big.

  28. Mary Benrud is on your list. She was arrested on October 27 under her full name Mary Benrud Gachie. Could you edit this to put her full name on here in bold?

  29. If you are able, please add John Arnoldy, a fire keeper for months, and Nico Wind Cordova, who did constant fundraising for the horses, and was able to bring some Portland Veterans and supplies in. They would be honored to have their names added.

    1. I know you have been crazy busy adding names at the last moment, and it is greatly appreciated. I’mean a bit confused though. Your response to my question above says I don’the need to wait to order posters with the updated list of water protectors, and it will be on the 13×39 posters being printed on April 10th, but I don’t see a 13×39 poster available.

    2. I’d like to be added pls. 2 month resident … left ill poisoned. Finally starting to walk again after 5 months. 🙂

  30. I would be honored to have my name on the list with my family at SR I was there almost 3 months and in all major battles from mid sep- mid dec thank you for connecting us all with the list .. it would be beautiful to have a connection fb page just for the family that was there together to re-connect maybe this list can do that?<3
    Also plz make sure that the list is protected I know that there was a lot of people trying to stay low key as they were being searched for by police… we must make sure everyone stays protected <3 much love family keep standing up… keep protecting Aho

  31. Someone likely gave your name thinking you should be honored. Most people offered their names but some offered the names of others hoping to honor them.

  32. Thank you for creating this. I’ve got a couple questions before I order. Wondering about the panoramic poster….. Does it have the names on the back?

    And the poster set…. How many cards do you get with that? Is it two sets of 25?

    Thank you.

    1. Originally we intended to have only those arrested on the back of panoramic. But abandoned the idea because of continued legal issues for some arrestees. So the panoramic poster will not have any names. Poster set will come with a set of cards (25) and a set of letters (6) and envelopes. (One little secret: Anyone’s order whose name on the posters will get an added surprise with their orders as our gratitude.)

    1. Please add my name! I was there several weeks, was tear gassed and subjected to the LRAD on 11/20, etc. and would feel honored to be amongst these other names. Anna Kruger

    2. It seems like the leader of the Sioux tribe’s legal council is worried that this poster could compromise the actions they are taking in court. I think you should contact him, not sure he wants names posted! You can find him on Facebook, Dallas Goldtooth.

      1. Dallas Goldtooth is not the Leader of anything but Indigenous Environmental Network.

        Chase Iron Eyes is Lakota People’s Law Project

        David Archambault II is Council Spokesman for SRST Tribal Council.

    3. My name was on and is now not . Erika Gutierrez Walelu . Can someone correct this? I was honored to be there and won’t stop fighting and being there for our people makes me honored .

    4. This is a very dangerous and careless project. Please cancel this in respect to those who’s freedom and safety can be jeopardized by the publishing of the ‘list’.

    5. Idiots. How could you think that people would want this? Like, a list of all the bands at Summerfest or something? Screw that. Immoral, unethical, and endangering to all who took part in this action. Idiots, you are such idiots.

    6. No how about you take ALL the names off!! And only use the names you were given permission! Sacred stone issued a press release AGAINST you name list. Honor us by getting permission FIRST

        1. I’m talking about everyone else on the list that didn’t give you permission, I don’t remember saying anything about my name.

    7. I would like to know how to contact you without having to register. I have concerns of my daughter’s name being on the list. She is a minor and I have not given my consent at anytime to have her name on this list. Please contact me by email:

    8. I actually do not want my name added and I would like both comments of mine deleted (seeing as I cannot do it myself). It is a shame you didn’t do this in an honorable way. Please do not add my name and please delete both comments. I do not wish to be associated with this post.

    9. I think you are making a huge mistake. Using peoples names with out their knowledge or permission. I’m not trying to be mean or hateful and I appreciate the thought behind honoring them, but profiting off of them is against the law.

    10. An elder here in southern California requests her name to be added. Sylvia Sherbet. She asked if I can make that happen. My name is on the list and I am happy about it. Thank you. This is history.

  33. I was at Oceti Sakowin during the first blizzard in late November and early December 2016. I had to fight my way through the snow to get in and worked on reinforcing shelters from the snow, down by the construction building. I left a day before the Vets came in. My son Conor Brendan was there four times from August to December, was on multiple actions and performed with First Love and at the sacred fire. He was at the recent rally in DC and wrote and recorded this song at Oceti Sakowin. Resist.
