For All Our Relations

Dear Villagers,

The Black Snake.
Oil.
First Nations.
Standing Rock.
Mama Earth.

As many of you know, the Black Snake also known as the Dakota Access Pipeline, is trying to make its way through the sacred land of the Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota. Right now there are thousands of people standing in protest against it’s construction. But this isn’t just about Standing Rock. To me, this isn’t about “us” and “them”. This is about WATER. This is about protecting one of life’s most vital resources for our children’s children’s children. For Black, White, Red, Yellow, Brown. All Colors. All Nations. All Tribes.

In many ways, I see that we can turn the struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline into a blessing. A blessing that can wake us all up to the horrors of corporate greed that functions at the expense of our natural resources. A blessing to make all of us come together, no matter who we are and where we came from, to stand up and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. A blessing of learning to let go of selfishness and greed, to come together for the greater good.

“If you are a rock, stand up like a mountain.”

So here we are … trying our best to stand up.
For many of us, we can’t make the trip to Standing Rock to stand next to our brothers and sisters on the front lines. But we can stand up where ever we are to show our support and solidarity in many ways. Don’t be foolish and under estimate the power of prayer.

This song entitled “Standing Rock” is a prayer.

Written by my friend Aaron Edwards and myself, this song is inspired by the land of Standing Rock and all of the warriors out there on the front lines laying down their lives for WATER. They are mountains in and of themselves … touching the sky with their peaks of strength, love, and selfless service. But these mountains need their own water in the form of food, tents, blankets, and other materials in order to keep standing tall against the black snake. We are offering this song to help provide them with these things.

If you download this song, 100% of the funds raised will go directly to the front lines of Standing Rock to support our brothers and sisters standing up for what we believe in. You can donate as much as you’d like, be it $1 or $100 … every dollar counts.

Our love and prayers are with all people across the earth who are victims of corporate greed and power.

This one’s for you.

With love and light,

Trevor Hall

"Standing Rock"
Lyrics

To the east and west
To the north and south
Warrior Warrior

Gather every tribe
Mama needs you now
Warrior Warrior

Suits are moving in just to get their dollar
Treaties being broken no respect or honor

Listen close my friend
This is happening
Warrior Warrior

If you are a rock
Stand up like a mountain
Rise up from the earth
One Love One Message
I know that we are strong in spirit
And if you are the righteous, hear it
If you are a rock
Stand up like a mountain

Burn the sage and cedar
Spirit is the leader
Warrior Warrior

The clouds are getting heavy
Thunder Beings are ready
Warrior Warrior

Where the oil spills we cannot drink the water
Seven Generations all the sons and daughters

Gather all your friends
This is happening
Warrior Warrior

Water is Life
Life from the Water
Water is Life
Elders they taught us
Water is Life
Life from the Water
