To offer strong resistance or opposition to someone or something, to resist
Withstand With Wolves is a collective of Water Protectors and Land Defenders dedicated to fighting for basic human rights, clean water and a healthy environment. In Native lore, the Wolf is the warrior that protects the tribe.
A pack of Wolf Warriors has been at Standing Rock for months on end battling the Dakota Access Pipeline that threatens to poison the Missouri river and in doing so risking the main water supply of millions of people and animals. Along with thousands of fellow Water Protectors, we’ve been Withstanding the influence of multi-billion dollar corporations who put money before people, Withstanding police brutality, Withstanding racism and the government’s blatant disregard for our right to clean water. The Native people of this land have been Withstanding oppression for over 500 years.
The Wolves are warriors. We are dedicated to fighting the atrocities that are being committed against our Earth and our people. We offer a platform for Water Protectors, Land Defenders and Allies to inform and educate each other,
to work together on real strategies and solutions to the injustices of colonization and corporate greed. We fight on the front lines, in courtrooms and on social media. WWW provides direct ground support in the battles against projects that will cause further destruction to Unčí Makȟá, our Grandmother Earth.
The resistance at Standing Rock has ignited a fire which will only spread, because the destruction of Sacred and Indigenous Land is and has been occurring all around the world for centuries. We are entering a dark time in history but We Will Withstand. Water Is Life. Join the pack.
