R4R Guest: BIG WIND
SHOW: March 19th 2018
Micah "Big Wind" Lott is a Northern Arapaho tribe member, community organizer and life-long environmental/Indigenous rights activist. He grew up on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. He, along with his sister, "Little Wind" were one of only a few who spent the entire winter of 2017 at the Standing Rock camp in protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline construction. There they vowed to spread the message of a fossil free future and now travel across the nation to educate, advise and organize events in defense of Water.
"The country is witnessing 'the privatization of clean water. We have a hard time getting clean water now,' he said. People should think of how difficult it will be to get clean water in seven generations.
'That’s why I’m going to continue fighting this,' he said. 'I feel everyone should be fighting to make sure they are getting clean water." (www.wyofile.com)
