Owe Aku has developed an educational and training program that has been presented at many different gatherings over the past three years, including Moccasins on the Ground, which was held in Manderson, South Dakota March 8-10. Trainings are planned for Yankton and Cheyenne River in the coming weeks.
“We just completed a Moccasins of the Ground Training here on the Pine Ridge Homeland in collective action with Great Plains Tarsands Resistance and Tarsands Blockade. More than 300 people participated in the three day training experience. We had a Water Ceremony conducted by our elders and an Icicuse Ceremony, Making of the Vow, with our Whip Bearer of the Tokala Warrior Society. It was very powerful. We are ready to move on in our Tour, every door to opposing the KXL is closing one by one. Soon the only door left open will be direct action. We intend to focus our limited resources on making NVDA training available to the grassroots people on the land in the Keystone XL pipeline proposed route,”
