    Hope the sacred territory will remain SACRED!!
    My spirit will stand by those in the defense of the land.

    Keep things going strong and ask for protection from creator. I am hosting a fasting sweat prayer ceremony June 11 at 6am sweat.Then we are going up on Mt. Shasta to raise the pipe and smoke…then solo time on the Mountain for participants then going back for a 8pm sweat on my property. I met Wounded Knee at the Bloody Island commemoration last month at Clear Lake and really want to support what you are trying to do. We must never waver to protect our sacred sites. We will be focusing the June 11th ceremony to pray for protection and strength for the cause at Glen Cove. We hope to bring some bears down there to offer strength and protection soon.

    Oh ho!!!!

    I will continue to pray, my fear is that one day all of our mother will be covered in buildings and pavement and only a few grass leaves will fight their way though the cracks in the pavement

  5. Sam Kurshan says:

    I wish I could be there with you now as I have been many times in the past.
    My engine blew up in my truck making it very difficult for me to get around lately.
    My heart and prayers are with you and everyone there.
    God is watching over and protecting all of you.
    Keep up the vigil. You will prevail.
    I hope to join you again, soon.

    Your friend and supporter,

    Prayers for perseverance, relief/supporters/advocates to continue to hear of the encampment and Segorea Te, Glen Cove, Vallejo, CA.

    I know the need is great for donations! I continue to gather signatures here in/around Sacramento and on my travels, prayer walks along the Sacramento River and spread the news to SNAHC/TANF/BV Rancheria, etc. I need prayers in a request to speak to Govenor Brown.

    I will be visitng for the day Sunday and hope to camp soon after I graduate this program and find permanent housing. Now I come when I can usually on my way into the Bay Area to visit my Sons. They hope to visit soon, possibly next weekend.

    This Sunday, I will be escorted by Steaven Greenwood, President: Aggressive Aerodynamics Institute of Research.
    “I am volunteering along side this Brother to help with the ‘Mother Earth Medicine/the power of the Air’ – to detox our environment!”

    Thank you for the wonderful clear pictures that were recently uploaded to the website.

    Blessings, AHO
