The Standing Rock Pipeline Protesters

bison

When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us. ~ Native American proverb

They did not grab much attention in the mainstream news, partly because of the negative, noisy US presidential election season. But the Standing Rock pipeline protesters in North Dakota, in my opinion, deserve a hearing. Apparently, they’re not going to get much of one.

As you may know, the protests are over the Dakota Access Pipeline construction in North Dakota, near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. The Standing Rock tribe and environmentalists are arguing the US Army Corps, which approved the pipeline last July, failed to adequately consider its impact on sacred Sioux sites.

There’s far more to it, but that’s a short summary of what’s going on.

However, today we want to talk not about politics, protests, or whatever—there’s already too much focus on all that’s “wrong” with our world. We want to talk about something uplifting and positive—something that came out of the Standing Rock protests.

Native Americans have historically honored the land and all its wild creatures. So it’s not surprising the land and the animals should have a special bond with the tribes.

About a week ago, a herd of wild bison (buffalo) appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, at the protests. About the same time, a golden eagle appeared.

Did these wild, “dumb” animals just happen to stumble upon the scene of the protests? Or were they coming to support the tribe in their efforts to honor the tribal lands and sacred sites?

My spirit guides said once, in our Spirit Oracle Cards, “Animals…are often your teachers. They have little to learn from you. But  you have much to learn from them.”

**************************************

Here are two short videos taken at the site of the Standing Rock pipeline protests. The first features images of the bison and the golden eagle who appeared at the protests. The second video was filmed as the bison herd came thundering into the protest area.


In the early 1980s John took a spiritual development course, and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.
Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
