We are creating a way for the Shakori Hills GrassRoots community to stand in solidarity with, and show support for the Indigenous-led movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota. We believe in this movement and we believe Water is Life.
At the Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival October 6-9 we’ll be collecting supplies and donations to help sustain the camps at Standing Rock throughout the winter. Ed Griffin and Luke Miller have graciously agreed to transport the supplies to North Dakota. Any money raised will go towards purchasing needed supplies for the camps as well as help with the transportation costs.
If you are interested in donating supplies they are mostly looking for items to support through the cold weather months. Below are the camp Amazon Wish Lists that are updated regularly. We ask you to please check out these lists to get a sense of what is needed, the idea is to bring what they truly need at this time!

You can also donate directly to the legal defense funds here:
More information on the movement can be found here:
At the festival we’ll be accepting donations in a trailer parked next to the Tractor Shuttle tent in the parking area. We’ll update here with info on when donations can be dropped off, thinking we’ll set hours each day for this, stay tuned and check back.
If you’d like to make cash donations you can do so at the Coffee Barn throughout the festival, there will be a clearly marked box to do this at.
