Cheryl Angel: Water Is Life

Jan 7, 2018-- Cheryl Angel is an indigenous leader, wise (Sioux) Lakota elder woman, mother of five children, and lifelong devoted water protector who helped initiate and maintain the Standing Rock camp since April 2016, and who was vital in the nonviolent resistance to the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines. Her voice among the water protectors is one of integrating deep prayer with nonviolent direct action, guiding two women-led actions at Standing Rock. A spiritual activist from the Sicangu (Rosebud) tribe -- one of the seven tribes that conform the Lakota/Nakota/Dakota People in the Great Plains of North America -- Cheryl moves from a deep space of love and nonviolence as guided by her ancestors and Lakota traditions and ways of being.

Take ActionTake a few moments to say a few words of thanks to the nature around you. Gather others, if you feel comfortable doing so, and recognize all that the Earth gives us: the air we breathe, the sun on our skin, the beauty of the seasons, the food we eat, the ground we go back to. Take time also, to connect with one another. Chant, sing, write a poem, or simply sit in quiet meditation and be grateful for the gifts around us.
