Little Creek Camp
Founded by Indigenous Iowa

We strive to implement a sustainable community rooted in indigenous thought and practice. Through this way of life we hope to create a mindset that nurtures progressive thought and action that will bring change to Iowa. Beyond the continued fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Iowa, we are a think tank dedicated to action for social and environmental justice. This camp is a hub for all organizations and individuals in Iowa that want to resist the new administration, modify this system of governance and encourage a new economy; an economy for the people that is built on renewables and a sustainable way of life.
A Few Points
- We still have plans to combat DAPL By bringing attention to the court case wherein 14 Iowa citizens and the Sierra Club are suing the Iowa Utilities Board over their abuse of eminent domain.
- Traditional indigenous agricultural practices and diet, governance systems, philosophical ideologies and living habits will be used to promote sustainability and self-sufficiency.
- Personal and professional development will be promoted through various teaching and educational resources, including traditional indigenous, grassroots and academic teachers.
- We will involve ourselves in the movements and events of other organizations in the state that are like minded.
- We promote Indigenous-minded wellness of the mind, body and soul. There will be a sweat lodge, a Women's and Men’s council and a traditional healing center.
- We are peaceful and prayerful protectors of our Earth Mother and her children.
