He was a water protector at Standing Rock, North Dakota the fall of 2016, and the winter and spring of 2017. “The healing of our hearts began at Standing Rock. The creator and his good medicine protected us – we survived the winter of 2017 one of the toughest in North Dakota. We need to keep those teaching and prayers in our hearts. Now is the time to go forth, to stand in this nation and in the world. We, as human beings were held in that sacred circle – the healing place of Standing Rock. We were known and loved, and it strengthened our hearts. It is the beginning of the healing work we need to do.“
