Diné family honors son by offering support at Standing Rock

Louise B. Wilson and her family came to honor her son after he survived a devastating life changing accident. He remained in critical condition and remains in medical recovery. Louise stated the family was so grateful for his survival, they decided to help other native people however they could. Their focus became generous donation of time and supplies from their home in Page Az. Their tragedy evolved into a journey of humanity to Standing Rock.

Jannalee Atcitty, former Miss Navajo 2004-2005, Diné from the Navajo Nation, of the “Coyote Pass Clan” (Ma’iideeshgiizhnii), born for the Towering House Clan (Kinyaa’aanii),  pointed out the hypocrisy of land in trust. She stated: “in trust for who? when? they are trying to make us extinct, to end our story, so what is the land trust and who should we trust?”
