The Pacific North West Council of Water Protectors

is a coalition of indigenous and non-indigenous supporters

who carry forward the fire that began at Standing Rock N.D.

in 2016 to protect our sacred water and maintain

the sovereignty of tribal nations.

ABOUT OUR ELDERS 

As a Native American culture, we have always looked to our spiritual elders who have been guided and directed by our ancestors and who can teach us of the ancient prophecies. some of the many messages have always been about things like: leaving a place better than you found it, exchanging a fair value when you take something; respecting  honoring and loving mother earth and all living things, and that there are times to be quiet and times to take action.

 OUR VISION

We envision a regional Medicine Gathering of indigenous and non-indigenous supporters to continue protection of our sacred waters and to teach self-sufficiency for our families. Participants will honor the spiritual protocols which guide the camp.
