Faith Spotted Eagle 'Indian Women defending land from Keystone XL pipeline'

Faith Spotted Eagle: Women are nurturers, but they are also Mother Bears, ready to defend the land and water

WASHINGTON DC -- Faith Spotted Eagle, Ihanktonwan Oyate (Yankton Dakota) told the ‘Reject and Protect’ action resisting the Keystone XL tarsands pipeline today in DC that Indian women are ready to protect their land from the proposed invasion of the Keystone XL pipeline and violence of the man camps in the Dakotas.

Spotted Eagle, Ihanktonwan Oyate spiritual leader and elder, said Southern Ponca, Pawnee and First Nations allies signed an international treaty to protect the land from Keystone XL pipeline in Jan. of 2013.

"With that Treaty, we mean business."

During the action on the National Mall, she also spoke on the role of the Buffalo Robes and Star Quilts for honoring people. She was joined by Casey Camp-Horinek, Ponca from Oklahoma.

Spotted Eagle said the backbone of the nation is the women. They are the co-creators. The role of women is that of life givers, a role that requires women to be humble.

"We have to be very humble about that because we also bring life. We have to walk in that way of remembrance."

“We have a responsibility but we also turn into Mother Bear.”

“We stand here as Mother Bears to defend our land, our farms, our ranches, our treaty territory. They are violating our treaty land and our treaty water."

"We have come here to say 'Enough is Enough.' We are not going to let TransCanada pass our treaty land.”

Spotted Eagle said the ‘man camps’ of oil crews are bringing increased violence to Indian Nations. One out of three Yankton women have been sexually assaulted by non-Indians, she said.

"When you assault us, you assault Mother Earth."

Now, Native Spiritual Camps are going up along the proposed TransCanada route to defend and protect.

Spotted Eagle said the first spiritual camp was on Ponca land in Oklahoma, then in South Dakota on the Lakota land of Rosebud and next at Cheyenne River land. Spiritual camps will go up on Lakota land at Lower Brule and Pine Ridge in South Dakota. The Ihanktonwan place is to "watch the door."
