CANNON BALL, NORTH DAKOTA – Protecting the Waters at Standing Rock, there are hundreds of Tribes,. At least 300 Tribes representing people from Florida, South Carolina, British Columbia, California and various indigenous destinations around the world.
Atta P. Stevenson is a member of the Cahto Tribe in Laytonville, California. She drove out to the Sacred Stone Camp in two days. She was loaded down with winter supplies to give away coats, blankets, tarps, gloves, hats, and socks.
Stevenson is waiting for colleagues to arrive at camp. The group is offering Emergency Management Services to assist in keeping communication and strategies to protect humans, horses, (animals) and property safe in disaster preparedness.
“There is only one world, one water, and one people. It is our responsibility and duty to stand for all those that can’t speak or fight for themselves,” said Stevenson.
