WASHINGTON DC -- Ponca Casey Camp-Horinek opened the Interfaith Ceremony outside US Secretary of State John Kerry's home this morning, during the Cowboy and Indian Alliance's Reject and Protect action to halt approval of the Keystone XL tarsands pipeline, threatening future generations.

"If they won't acknowledge our voices, at least they can acknowledge our prayers," Camp-Horinek said at the ceremony.

Chief Rueben George said his mother told him, "Warrior Up! Stand up and fight for what you believe in!

"This money will be gone tomorrow, this land will be here forever," said Chief Rueben George, Sundance Chief and Member of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation in northern Vancouver, BC.
