Indian Country Today Media Network ran my op-ed piece today to spread the word about the propane crisis affecting thousands of tribal citizens like my elderly grandmother. Please check it out, share, and consider donating to one of the sustainable (and indigenous) projects listed in the piece. Mad props goes to Sustainable Digest for originally posting a version of this column on their blog last week.
Here’s a link to a blog I wrote for Sustainable Dakota. The death of Debbie Dogskin in Standing Rock hit hard, especially when I think about my tiospaye and the daily struggle to survive in harsh weather conditions back home in Cheyenne River. It could be any elder, any child, anyone who we find next frozen to death in their own home if we don’t take action NOW to build sustainable tribal homes and communities.
