Survival in the Dakotas | Winter Round II

Last year I was at Standing Rock, this year I'm testing my learning and sharing the process, inspiration and insight from a detached perspective. The work on this page so far is staying. When work is published I will share it here with no announcement. I WILL continue to share images that can benefit the Creative Commons, but they'll be general, original, and hopefully helpful with the narrative of others.



Values I learned to live by last year:
Honor the planet as our Mother/Grandmother
Honor ALL life and our relation to it and each other
Plan for coming generations

Included goal: Decolonization
Part of that is accountability.
Part of that is digging deep to relate to the last time my family line would have been living in relation to the planet as a living being, 10 generations ago. Best way I figure to do that is be here as a guest among people who never gave up their value system as part of a community.
Part of that is trusting the process.

Challenges: Not co-opting a thing
Not appropriating anything
Living cross-culturally in a good way
Learning to survive with my own familiar system falling away one layer at a time. 
Sharing what I can of the process
In this place, this way of life, it is culturally inappropriate to claim credit for work performed. Work done for the people is a gift, asking for funding to keep it going won't fly.

Benefits to walking the talk, and taking time to learn the lessons: 
Discovering that living with less is easier than you'd think.
It's easier to avoid destructive patterns like drinking at all, and it's amazing the clarity that comes with that.

I'm being a chaos monkey, it can't be predictable, it has to be humble, bear with me, I will always share something and always with the aim of making it interesting.

Living Sustainably in Real-Time, thought adventures and processes delivered via email directly. You'll get the version that didn't get edited, or published because it mighta been TOO risky, TOO insightful, TOO something.


This lifestyle involves living on a prayer, contributed effort to shared living in temporary structures, and the ongoing experiences and insights we learn along the way.


I'll share what I can of course, operating within pre-informed consent, but... I am told regularly I think too much. That'll work out for ya, in terms of all those extra ideas that don't make it into the living experiment.


Idea examples:

Rocket Stoves & Diagrams

Earth Ship for this region

Reversing Propaganda, Visually
This is probably going to get me into trouble. It's art.


WORST part about art, is creating it to get paid for it. I rarely do this anymore, it usually just comes out however it's going to come out. 


Damn the torpedoes.


I will aim to create 1 of these a month.

Encourage and support me and I will.

Working from Meditation, Listening, and Then Creating
This sort of communication explores the benefit of co-creating within a group, where balance can be found in the middle of the perspectives. 


This tier of support will get the regular, unpublished (so far) thought process that is developing around this. It is based on 10+ years of volunteer work, accentuated by the insightful values-based living experience here.


Pre-informed Tribal Consent applies.

Goals
$0 of $60 per month
With $60 a month, I will be able to afford my thyroid medication... been taking it all my life, I don't really have one, it was removed at age 14 and never worked in the first place, and need this medication for living!
