A FEW WORDS ABOUT OUR INTENTION…

 

We are heart centered activists, inspired by the indigenous peoples of this planet. Through their living example, we are experiencing what’s possible when we braid our spiritual, political and social values together, with honor and respect to the diversity of all life.

 

This site is inspired specifically by the activists at Standing Rock, who started the “defunddapl.org” site. We are indebted to their leadership. Our hope, with their inspiration, is to bring the spirit of that movement here to Vermont.

 
We understand that we live here in what is occupied land, taken from indigenous people who lived here long before this land was called Vermont and who still reside here today. We understand that we are in a process of learning what it means to be conscious of that, as we do what we can in building a broad and intersectional social movement, that is grounded in a spirit of love and “prayer”…
