Water is life.

All credit due to the strong and resilient people of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Lakota and Dakota Nations, Native American tribes of this land, First Nations People, indigenous people of the Americas, and countries beyond. To the unified native tribes, bound together at this moment in history to shine light on the persistent subjugation of native lands, and continued broken treaties in the interest of privatization and plundering of natural resources by the petroleum industry... all credit is due for your diligence and fortitude. To the allies on the front lines, the military veterans, the concerned & conscious citizens, the lovers of freedom, believers in truth, the honorable politicians voicing concern, those whose values and ideals remain truly American... all credit is due. The truth is on your side. History is on your side. May we all have peace.

These songs are an inspired soundtrack. These songs are derived of the passion, anger, laughter, tears, resilience, resignation, joy, loss, hope, the existential battle, the ongoing plight for understanding, the fundamental right to be heard, and the meaningful words of just a few of the righteous individuals who represent the water protectors at Sacred Stone Camp.
