Standing Rock and the Long Black Snake
Standing Rock is a place in North Dakota where Native American people (Indians), of the Sioux Tribe live and work... but it is much more. When word got out that a long, black snake (called a pipeline), had invaded its borders, intent on destroying sacred lands and threatening their source of water, thousands of people all over the world, fought back. Their weapons? The Great Spirit: Prayer, chanting, singing, and dancing. Join Maggie as she and her grandchildren witness these events and learn how joining in creates resounding gifts. Author, Nadine Vaughan.Williams was inspired to write Standing Rock and the Long Black Snake, when she heard that indigenous tribes in the United States, were once again forced to fight against moneyed interests who seemed to care more for their billions than they cared about people. Vaughan.Williams is the author of novels: "FireCat! The Legend of Amazon Sage”; "Native Land: Lost in the Mystery of Time;” and eight childrens’ books. Together with her husband, David D’Ardenne, they created FireCat! Press, to promote her healing stories for children of all ages.
