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.
WATER IS LIFE!
Our Traditional Elders
The Council is guided by our indigenous Elders on organization protocols, spiritual practices, and direct actions by council members. Our indigenous Elders model respect and take the lead in all sacred ceremonies.
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 and honoring mother earth and all living things, and that there are times to be quiet and times to take action.
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.
We are a small non-profit group of people who work hard at developing strategies on how to best raise awareness and resources needed to support water protectors who actively continue to be a voice for mother earth.
