Digital Smoke Signals Media #NODAPL
$58,995 of $50,000 goal
Thanks to all who have supported this cause to protect our sacred resources. As you know there have been many challenges in providing just media coverage at Standing Rock. These challenges include, but aren’t limited to: StingRay signal jammers, frigid winter temperatures, minimal infrastructure, and mainstream media bias on reporting. We have worked tirelessly to get the truth out to you and vow to continue to do so. We ask for your help!
We are raising funds because doing front line media is not without cost, equipment can be expensive, it can and is being targeted. They took our drone claiming to have a warrant when they did not. Let's raise enough cash to replace it so we can have another pair of eyes back in the sky ASAP. We have also been provided with an RV that we aim to turn into a mobile editing studio, this will help get everyone media out to the public in an efficient and effective manner. Even a couple of bucks helps, we have stickers and buttons to show our appreciation.
Mobile & Wireless Technology has helped Digital Smoke Signals break though the "Forced Digital Divide" when uploading 4K footage to FaceBook, Youtube and Online media outlets.
With your help, we will be strengthening our
WIRELSSS TECHNOLOGY and MOBILE EQUIPMENT.
Thank you from the 4-Directions at Oceti Sokowin, Sacred Stones Camp in North Dakota and on the Front Lines

Indigenous Peoples’ sacred sites, water and traditional harvesting places are in danger of climate destruction, pollution and overharvesting devastation. THIS IS A VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS - ALL OUR HUMAN RIGHTS.

Professor, filmmaker/editor, owner of Digital Smoke Signals, digital storyteller trainer, journalist, youth media trainer, historical trauma trainer.
Imagine this rig as the Digital Smoke Signals Mobile Editing Studio. That will travel Indian Country bringing world changing media training to the youth of these communities.
This campaign started 2016 Fall and ended 2017 spring. What was accomplished? Documenting Human rights violations, constitutional violations, environmental impact study violations, beautiful prayer, solidarity from all around the word, so much love, caring and also so much hurt.
We witnessed together we can come together to protect the water, mother earth and each other.
With you support, I was able to help expand independent media, purchase and hand out mobile media equipment, combat yellow journalism/Propaganda Media, police brutality, mobile equipment for independent journalist, food, gas and continued research and evidence to help protect Water Protectors in the legal battle.
This is not over, intact, this has opened up the struggles we all face together, environmental destruction from big corporations.
I am humbled and so grateful for your support and solidarity.
The documentary called Awake, A dream from Standing Rock which is on Netflix is also made possible by you all. 100% of the proceeds from the documentary go to a youth media fund for media training, leadership and protecting mother earth.
I am thankful to all of you for your prayers, solidarity and support,
Digital Smoke Signals

Myron, you have given me a vision of the prairie, the camps, the sites of action by the Water Protectors, and the beautiful powerful rivers that has moved and changed me. I lived in Bis/Man for 12 yrs, taught @ UTTEC, and visited the camps in September. I use your videos in my classes and presentations and the response is always mind-awakening in my students. My gift is a small one compared to the size of heartful love and prayerful energy I send to you every morning when I make smoke and prayers for you and your team. A ho. Mni Wiconi WATER IS LIFE ♥

The entire world is watching Standing Rock.. It is drilled into our American heads that USA is the greatest country in the world and the govt is for the people and governed by the people. Not so. The illegal actions by the energy company and the local govt make a mockery of our democracy and bring shame upon our country. It is a very very sad time in our country to see people. sprayed by water cannons in freezing temps for peaceful protest and the govt assisting an energy company that tramples on human rights and breaks the law by violating the constitution....why are our tax dollars being spent protecting an energy company that plans on selling. this energy to foreign countries? a USA energy sent to foreign govts that may or may not hate the US.. President Obama has the. opportunity to stop this madness and leave a fine legacy....Since the Pres has not stepped up for US it is up to US to stop this corporate greed monster.
I am the holiday shopper that enabled Su'ana Mompittseh's recent donation through her beaded items on Etsy. Wanted to extend a personal thanks. Your work prepared me for my Thanksgiving week visit and keeps me connected now that I have returned to West Virginia to fight the pipeline, fracking and mountain top removal coal mining struggles that affect our water here. Trusted media coverage & documentation is of vital importance.
Myron, Despite the good news today, we know this is but a feign in their fight. after january 21, they will be back. I hope that my donation and others enable you to prepare for the next stage in this, for greed never sleeps and our vigilance must keep up! keep up the great work ♥
