Interesting since the Sacred Stone Camp are actually are calling for people to stop coming. You can read it on their own Facebook page.
"Dear allies: we have asked this before, and we will ask it again. Please do not set up crowdfunding pages to simply bring yourself to Standing Rock if you are not coordinating with indigenous people on the ground. It is very very hard to organize on the ground, it is very difficult to gauge needs, navigate the camps, navigate power dynamics, communicate etc. We are here, and we have been working hard on this campaign, and we need your support. We do not need you to come and save us, we need your prayers and your resources and your actions. Please look around yourself if you are at camp, and consider the dynamic. Are you creating space that is dominantly non-indigenous? If so, please consider that this is a furthering of colonization, and take action to step back, and recenter indigenous sovereignty. If you have raised funds for yourself, please find a camp here to donate to: http://sacredstonecamp.org/donate/"
Yeah for Big Johns! And that quaint dive bar is not "good ole boy"- stop showing your ignorance by judging a place you've obviously never hung out in. Green Door was overpriced & nothing any more special than every other attitude filled restaurant downtown. And Corey is not innocent in all this-ask what moves he pulled to have this rug pulled from under him. Charleston needs more places lime BJ's-where normal folks are welcome & it isn't a giant fashion show, who do you know snob fest.
ONE person in the event's long history made a stupid decision and broke Skinful policy and died- what about the thousands of safe partiers over the years? Don't judge the event if you've ever experienced it. And I don't drink or do drugs, I just like music and fun costumes.
I am a vegetarian so my opinion is moot, but my husband and every person we bring here falls in love and can't wait to come back. And these are not Hyman's loving people either that fall into a tourist trap.
This monstrosity blocks the sun on that stretch of Coleman. Very out of place in a bad way. I understand they want to dismantle and revamp what it currently looks like and that's a shame because it's charming but charming is quickly fading into pretentious.
