The 44th annual rainbow gathering of the tribes is happening in the Black Hills of South Dakota."

Supporting Native Efforts Opposed to Keystone XL - July 26
Keep in mind, that opposition to Keystone XL is something I personally support. In no way does this blog post represent the rainbow gathering or other gathering participants. However, given that the universe pulled us towards South Dakota this year, I think that perhaps other gathering participants may feel called as well.
Keystone XL Resistance March and Ride
Sunday, July 26 11 a.m. Fort Pierre, South Dakota
in Fort Pierre next to the Pizza Ranch at 11am MDT (12pm CT). Riders
both native and non-native will be leading us and we will ride and march
together across the bridge into Pierre to show our collective
resistance to tar sands and the Keystone XL pipeline. The march will be
followed by a water ceremony, concert rally, and a community feed.
