Urgent Relocation of Standing Rock
Begin:San Francisco, Ca
End: Sacred Stone Camp, ND
Flexible Date caravan departs San Francisco
Feb 1, 2017 -Feb 4th 2017 Yet undetermined
The Standing Rock Water Protectors are struggling NOW under Trumps Executive Order stating that the Standing Rock camp must close by the end of February.
Our members that are already on site at Standing Rock have notified us that they need very specific help in the removal of a few thousand living structures and hundreds of expensive pieces of equipment ranging from solar panels to cooking stoves.
Buddhist Tinkers have already assembled a small 3 person team, including two press pass holders, to help with the deconstruction/ transport of supplies and we will be leaving in the first week of February.
The drive out there will be costly as will any additional financial burdens that may arrive. There is a pre-existing GOFUNDME that was never withdrawn from from Hanson's second supportive venture to Standing Rock. We are still able to receive any funds that you wish to donate to our cause there. CLICK HERE FOR HANSON'S GOFUNDME PAGE.
With a flexible leave date between Feb 1st and the 4th, our team is struggling with connecting all related persons who have shown interest so please, if you have any physical supplies to offer for the Water Protectors visit:

What we’ve accomplished:
Hanson Lee- First journey
"I traveled over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with my family (6 total including our dog) to the protest site of the Sioux Indians protest at Standing Rock to give support. It truly was a personal transformation for myself and my family. Thus I will be returning to Standing Rock using my construction and engineering background to answer the spiritual leaders’ call to build up to 300 heating devices--using junkyard materials--for teepees, kitchens, toilets as the bitterly cold North Dakota winter rushes in. My “Buddhist Tinkerers Troupe” is leaving the warmth of San Francisco Saturday, December 3rd.
Hanson Lee- Second Journey to Sacred Stone camp
Dec 3rd- Dec 15th I solar panels on their kitchen roof to power lights and charge phones. I also installed a fan powered hot air blower that warmed a kitchen and prevented cooking water from freezing. Random construction projects filled my day- wherever building assistance was needed and relations between the Two Spirit Nation was built.
Completed Interviews with people on ground, to share the voices of people there. Coming Soon
