New Energy Economy is a proud supporter of a powerful public art piece currently being constructed at the Standing Rock Sacred Stones Water Protectors Encampment.
Please Join Us in Supporting this powerful Resistance Art by an amazing Native artist
From our friend - Santa Fe-based Lakota artist Charles Rencountre:
"The effigy figure "Not Afraid to Look the White Man in the Face," is a piece carved by my Plains ancestors in the mid 19th century, resurfacing in the 21st century as a monument figure.
We wish to build "Not Afraid to Look" in all places where people, Tribal peoples and all peoples who are willing to face what is so difficult in our time, we wish to build him there, in front of oil pipelines, GMO headquarters, the places of disasters and climate catastrophes. We want "Not Afraid to Look" to stand with the people reshaping what doesn't work for our planet, our home."
Charles, a member of the Lower Brule Sioux Nation, was invited by the Standing Rock tribe to build Not Afraid to Look at the Sacred Stone Camp as a monument to the non-violent resistance and powerful stand the water protectors are taking in the face of fossil fuel destruction and corporate greed. For the last two weeks he has been working with fellow campers to construct the piece. See an article about the piece HERE. See the YES Magazine piece that talks about the piece HERE.
So far, $2,300 has been raised for the project. Your generous donation will help cover the costs of the materials and Charles' transportation costs.
THANK YOU! FOR JOINING US IN RESISTANCE AND HOPE!
