Presentation by Doug Harris, Narragansett NITHPO on Ceremonial Stone Landscapes

Just in from the Nolumbeka Project:

Even if you cannot attend this presentation, please consider making a financial donation for legal fees. Remember, it was not that long ago that we faced a similar battle with Kinder-Morgan in this immediate area and throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The ugly head of that black snake can re-surface. Much depends on the success of this Sandisfield campaign to set a precedent and save the forest and the ceremonial stone features. We witnessed the bulldozing of similar features at Standing Rock. Please help prevent any more desecration!

Information excerpted from fundraising letter follows:
“There is currently an effort to explore legal avenues to protect this ceremonial stone landscape from being destroyed by the pipeline. The Nolumbeka Project supports the effort to protect these sacred stone structures. The estimate for the first phase of this legal work is $3,500. If you are able to contribute to the initial cost of this undertaking, please make your check payable to “Creative Thought and Action,” the fiscal sponsor for Climate Action Now, who is specifically amalgamating funds for this effort. Please be sure to put CSL in the “memo” line and mail your check to CAN’s treasurer:
Rene Theberge
250 Shutesbury Road,
Amherst, MA 01002
Thank you for your kind attention to this urgent and time sensitive request.
Susan Theberge, Climate Action Now
David Brule, Nolumbeka Project President

The world is a big place. This is how it appears to me. Your results may differ.

  1. Shutesbury, MA, is facing a similiar situation wherein COWLS has sold a sizeable lot of forested land to Lake Street Development, IL. There are Native American burial sites and ceremonial stone structures on this land which will be decimated if this project goes through.
    There is a federal civil rights case, filed in Springfield, MA, to stop this installation without first allowing it to be surveyed by a THPO. Shutesbury needs your support. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Mary Lou for your words. I am familiar with the situation in Shutesbury, and reblogged a couple articles on the action to protect ceremonial structures there. Since it went to court I haven’t heard anything more. Let me know if there are developments, please. Wliwni – thank you!
