Fallon is a young 17 year old Oglala Lakota youth from the Pine Ridge Indian reservation, she resides in Wounded Knee SD where the massacre took place in 1890, she is a 7th generation youth and is also a descendant from Chief Crazy Horse.

She is an activist and water protector who dedicated her time to Oceti Sakowin Camp near Standing Rock reservation, our water is being threatened by the Dakota Access Pipeline that will go under Lake Oahe which is where the Missouri River flows.

During the camp evacuations and police and National Guard raids people were hurrying to get to safety from these mad men, she ran down after last minute items when the structure she went into exploded and burned her.

She was pulled to safety then rushed to the hospital and from there she was life flighted out to a Burn center.

She has some serious burns and will have a long road to recovery but her spirits are back up and she still has the fighting spirit to fight for Mother earth, she would like to travel around the state's to stand up against pollution happening.

She thanks everyone for their support and continued prayers at this time, we are asking for your generous contributions to her road to recovery and medical bills.

 This GOFUND me is going to support the family's increased cost as they have to travel and live in Minnesota while Fallon Recovers. 

There is another fundraiser happening on another site, but those funds aren't accessible for another 30 days, and the family needs financial support NOW. 

ALL funds will go DIRECTLY to Clarence, Fallon's older brother and legal guardian. 

Thank you so much for your generosity!

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed and shared our fundraiser for Fallon. She is doing really well, and in high spirits despite how painful of a recovery she is facing.

She just went through skin graft surgery, and has a ways to go. Your support is vital in keeping her family close to her during this time, as she is receiving treatment out of state.

Please keep the momentum going and continue to share within your networks.

ALL FUNDS GO DIRECTLY to Clarence, Fallon's brother and legal guardian.

Here is a message from him:

Thank You to all out there who are supporting us young Water Protectors during this tough time for our family, we dedicated our lives to protect Mother Earth and our Sacred Water... our lives are changed for now but we will go right back to work when we leave this place... Fallon is still going to be in the hospital for awhile longer but with your continued prayers she will heal in time, she said she feels the prayers coming in from all four directions.
Thank you from our hearts, it feels good to know we are not forgotten during these tough times..... Clarence R

I feel for you- I have skin grafts covering most of my leg from a major accident- I hated them at first, but two years later, they have faded and I don't notice them anymore. Best of luck with recovery- you have strength inside you!!!
