Little Feather is one of several water protectors currently serving a federal prison term related to his involvement in the NoDAPL movement at Standing Rock. The money from this fundraiser will go directly towards his commissary and whatever else he may need.
Little Feather is from the Coastal Band of the Chumash Nation. In 2016, he dedicated an incredible amount of time, energy, and spirit to the fight against the black snake. Incarceration and the legal system were used to repress this powerful movement in response to the groundswell of indigenous resistance.
Little Feather was arrested and federally charged in March of 2017, and accepted a non-cooperating plea agreement the next year and was given a 36- month prison sentence, which he is currently serving. He is currently locked up in a maximum security prison in West Virginia, far from his home and family.
Though the Dakota Access Pipeline may have faded from the news, for many like Little Feather, the struggle is not over
Little Feather says: "Please let our people know that I love them and I'm honored to be where I am at for them. I want our people to know also to never give up hope on our movement. Our struggle is only the beginning and that we need to remember that what we stand for and fight for are the essence of our movement Mitákuye Oyás'iŋ."
There was unprecedented global
support for the movement at Standing Rock. We are asking folks to extend this
generosity to Little Feather, a political prisoner who has been targeted by the
state for defending the land, water and people.
