Waskoness Pitawanakwat from the Ojibwe tribe and Tea McGinnis from the Hupa tribe pose for a photograph in an encampment during a protest against plans to pass the Dakota Access pipeline near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, North Dacota

Sign a petition to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.

You can do that here.

Send supplies.

Thousands of people now based at the encampment will need shelter, food, and warmth to get through the cold temperatures.

The Sacred Stone camp has a fairly comprehensive website that includes current needs. Checks, cash or supplies can be sent via mail to: Sacred Stone Camp, P.O. Box 1011, Fort Yates, ND 58538, or 202 Main St., Fort Yates, ND 58538.

There’s an Amazon wish list here.

Protesters said they also need a four-wheel-drive pickup truck and ask that those willing to donate one contact them at sacredstonecamp@gmail.com. The truck “will be used for getting water, firewood, and other supplies to the camp,” the protesters’ website says. “We are in need so something that can handle harsh cold, snow, and steep dirt roads.”

The Standing Rock Medic + Healer Council, which takes care of injured protesters, has an Amazon wish list that can be found here.

Donate to the Standing Rock Sioux.

The tribe is soliciting donations for legal, sanitary and emergency purposes via PayPal. You also may contribute by mailing a check (payable to Standing Rock Sioux Tribe ― Donations) to: Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Attention: Donations, P.O. Box D, Building #1, North Standing Rock Ave., Fort Yates, ND 58538.

Donate to the protesters’ legal defense fund.

As legal bills for protesters pile up, they’re asking for help in paying processing fees. The PayPal account is freshetcollective@gmail.com.

Water

WATERWater: For Health, for Healing, for Life: You’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty! The author, Dr. F. Batmanghelidj, not only believes that drinking water is healthy, but claims it has curative powers. According to Batmanghelidj, most people are seriously dehydrated. He says that symptoms like fatigue, anxiety, or depression indicate dehydration, which may result in serious conditions such as asthma, heart disease, brain damage, cancer, constipation, allergies, obesity, and diabetes. In order to compensate for fluid lost through urination, respiration, and perspiration, Batmanghelidj suggests drinking a minimum of two quarts of plain water daily (not alcohol, caffeine beverages or juices). In addition, a diet consisting of a minimum of 80% fruits and vegetables should be followed along with an exercise program. The author presents a wealth of medical data as well as patient anecdotes that testify to water as a cure for various diseases.

My friend recently asked my opinion of an expensive water-alkalizing machine. I think all water is alkalizing because it neutralizes acidic residues left in the body from consuming cooked foods especially animal flesh. I do use a whole house water filter on my well and a water pitcher filter shown below. For reference I also added some inexpensive “water-alkalizers” that I have not used personally.
