(“Water is Life” in Lakota)
In August 2016, the Unnamed Path signed onto the Pagan Statement of Solidarity with Standing Rock –
As Winter sets in, with some Water Protectors heading home while others brace for the season, we reaffirm our solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the words expressed in the Pagan Statement of Solidarity.
We encourage everyone, as they are called, to work on this important issue as well as the numerous similar issues they face in their communities.
The Unnamed Path Brotherhood is outraged at the social injustice propagated against those in the Black Community in America. Further, the lack of justice in the cases where clear injustice has been done.
It is also clear that the insidious narratives about racial minorities in America that have led to this are alive and well. The Brotherhood stands in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter in order to uproot these narratives from ourselves and from our society.
Those in power will learn to use it with compassion or they will be replaced with those who will. There will be conversation; we will speak to this, we will remember. Our Ancestors and our Gods have stirred and will not rest until actions are taken.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
