Little Creek Prayer Camp - Iowa

The Mission and Path- 

Little Creek Prayer Camps mission is to implement a sustainable and self-sufficient community rooted in indigenous thought and practice.

They are a peaceful, environmentally progressive "think tank" rooted in indigenous thought and practice. They will utilize sustainable technology and infrastructure and traditional indigenous agricultural practices. Theyl value education from traditional indigenous teachers, academic educators, and community experts. Indigenous systems of democratic governance will be the foundation for the community.  Community members may be engaged in events or organized actions that protect our Earth Mother and sacred water, but do so representing only themselves and not the community. 

 

The idea of this camp was conceived by members of Indigenous Iowa in an attempt to carry on the momentum of Standing Rock. They will accomplish this by continuing to apply public pressure on the Iowa Utility Board, the Iowa Legislature and to support the resistance against the Trump administration. They are also here to continue the fight against the Dakota access pipeline that goes straight from Northwest Iowa to Southeast Iowa and under the Mississippi River. The pipeline might be completed in this state but we will continue to prevent any further expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure.
