#StandWith Blend 12oz. Bag
In solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and all those standing with them at The Oceti Sakowin Camp, we will be donating 100% of the profit from the sale of our #StandWith Blend directly to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Oceti Sakowin Camp.
The Oceti Sakowin Camp is a historic gathering of tribes, allies and people from all walks of life standing in solidarity to halt the Dakota Access Pipeline. With the escalations of violence and life threatening tactics by the more than 1,300 militarized law enforcement officers from 9 states against peaceful protesters, and the onset of a harsh winter...they need our help.
The Dakota Access Pipeline project, also known as Bakken Oil Pipeline, would extend 1,168 miles across North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois, crossing through communities, farms, tribal land, sensitive natural areas and wildlife habitat. The pipeline would carry crude oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to Illinois where it will link with another pipeline that will transport the oil to terminals and refineries along the Gulf of Mexico.
Energy Transfer Partners and a cadre of fossil fuel companies with financing from 17 large international banks seek to increase their multi billion dollar profits. Profits that come at the expense of poisoned water, disturbed burial grounds, environmental destruction and increased atmospheric carbon dioxide. This pipeline and the dirty Bakken Shale crude that will pass thru it from Canada to the Gulf Coast could add 101.4 million metric tons of CO2 per year to the atmosphere. These emissions are equivalent to 29.5 typical U.S. coal power plants or the average emissions of 21.4 million U.S. passenger vehicles.The Oceti Sakowin Camp and its people are not only trying to protect their land, water and sacred sites. They are trying to protect the very earth we all inhabit.
“As Lakota, we do our best to follow the teachings found in our language and culture. Wopila is our word for thanks, and it is important to practice gratitude in all our daily lives. And we, at Standing Rock are thankful for so much that the creator has provided for our family and friends, and the experience of togetherness. We are also grateful for those who understand the importance of respecting and safeguarding our water, our homelands, our sovereignty. These past few months have tested us, but we have remained strong in prayer and peace in spite of violence from law enforcement. We have been blessed with the support of millions. Whole communities and cities have said, “We stand with Standing Rock,” calling for President Barack Obama to deny the easement and to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from ever crossing our sacred waters. We thank you for standing with us and for standing for all our future generations.”
-Standing Rock Sioux Chairman, Dave Archambault II
