Book Synopsis
What was it like at Standing Rock? Within these pages I've tried to capture the essence of that special place and time. I meet so many people who are just fascinated by those of us who were there and who are curious about everything. This is the case for those who knew of the event as it was happening and perhaps more so for those who were completely unaware of it at the time and are shocked in learning of it when they do.
What was it like? Did they really lock people into dog kennels? Did it work? What now?
Please read and share with your classrooms, your community groups and those you speak with who are feeling overwhelmed and disheartened by the world today.

“Peace Standards - Standing Rock” is more than a book about a young descendant of the Lakota Oglala tribe embedding herself into the standoff at Standing Rock in 2016 and 2017. The Creator’s vision beckoned the author to learn more about her ancestors’ ways and to defend the earth from big oil’s efforts to install the Dakota Pipeline across her native land. Just being there, fighting big oil, the government and their suppression of the truth, reminded her how Native Americans were treated, relegated, dismissed, lied to and eradicated so that colonization of the country and “progress” could be made for our “prosperity.” The ravages of poverty, substance abuse and domestic violence continue to plague the natives who were assimilated, their culture and knowledge of the old ways destroyed.
The author’s time at Standing Rock became a launching point for her to dedicate her life in the service of others and to protect Mother Earth from ourselves: from the potential of fossil fuels leaking, poisoning our lands and waters, and contributing to global warming; and from not transitioning to more sustainable ways of life for our children, our children’s children, and the future.
“Peace Standards” provides a human perspective, told in a way that makes one feel like they are there, witnessing the event in person. You will want to read this insightful account of what really happened and how anyone can move toward ways of living that are more sustainable. “Peace Standards” contains many, many pictures and links to resource information, even video links. Throughout the Peace Standards book series, valuable materials are embedded by way of QR codes and website links that can be accessed and are included within the text.
The quote below from the book is the best reason I can recommend that you read it because it is not too late for a Movement to change the status quo. May the Creator guide us to help in whatever ways we can to save the earth and ourselves. Amen.
As I continue on my path, I want to work with you for the world as it should be. Reach out. Let us problem-solve together. All things are possible, everything we need is already within, today is the best day of our lives! @live_like_ally
