The Concerned Indian Committee along with local Native elders held a public sacred water walk on the waterfront Saturday November 19th. We are also organizing an interstate caravan to Standing Rock. Our leader is Buzz Nelson the grandfather of the president of the Lakota, Sioux tribe at Standing Rock, and our elders have been traveling back and forth from the front lines of the movement.

This event started at 10am at Tom McCall Waterfront Park at the fountain. Around 11am they (we) all walked across the Hawthorne to the Vera Katz Esplanade off of Grand and Salmon on the east side of the waterfront where our elders were waiting to guide us through some water blessings and where indigenous groups will perform and share food.

On Facecrack the event is called Sacred Water Walk for Standing Rock.
