ABOUT MNI WICONI HEALTH CLINIC PARTNERSHIP AT STANDING ROCK
In early September 2016, the Do No Harm Coalition at UCSF was invited to help create a free clinic at the camp of the Standing Rock Lakota Dakota and their supporters who are gathering to protect access to clean water and dignity of their ancestral lands. In November 2016, UCSF Native American health students under the Native American Health Alliance at UCSF assumed the role of indigenous leadership for this exciting project.
The Mni Wiconi (Water is Life) Health Clinic is a free integrative clinic that is developing with Standing Rock Sioux Tribe traditional healers, UCSF providers and students, National Nurses United, Changing Woman Initiative (indigenous midwifery group) and Global Health Care Alternative Project to provide free care to all people on tribal land in the Standing Rock Sioux reservation. At the invitation of the tribe, our consortium’s goal is to create a space for the imagining and practice of decolonized medicine in order to further the health of the community in the short-term with the expanded population due to pipeline resistance and in the longterm after the encampments have dissolved.
We are currently raising funds to get the clinic doors open, to cover general liability and the necessary equipment and medications to practice responsibly. This clinic will be staffed by 100% volunteer work, with faculty covering during vacation time.
Currently there is no local healthcare access for all of the 8,000-12,000 people who are assembled at Standing Rock. The local 12 bed IHS hospital cannot care for non-native people or native people from tribes that are not federally recognized.
Your gift will be used to get the clinic doors open and to provide immediate disaster medical relief!
Members of the UCSF community (faculty, staff and trainees) traveling to Standing Rock do so as private citizens, volunteering 100% of their time and effort. Travel and activities, including any medical assistance provided through a free clinic there are not UCSF-sanctioned activities. UCSF has allowed its institutional crowdfunding platform to be used by an interested group of UCSF students and community members who are in the process of completing registration as a registered campus organization. It is their intent to raise funds to create a free clinic at Standing Rock that will operate under the authority of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and not UCSF.

AP SHOUT OUTS: I'd like to take a moment to give props & love to my crew, my Audiopharmacy Prescriptions Collective Familia ~ Pasha Brown, Desirae Harp, Keep Yah Joy, Ahmed Meselhy Ragab, and Nick Rous who are coming together to bring their energy, their support and the power of the music to our Bay Area community this Sunday. I would also like to acknowledge my partner, and AP founder Teao Sense who has been healing for over whole year from serious injuries. He's inspired by the courageous folks at Standing Rock and is determined to give his all this Sunday. I will also be joining this special cast of artists to give a report back from my recent visit to Standing Rock. I'd also like to special shot out for those in the collective who may not be able to join us: to my brother por vida ~ Ras K'dee who is doing some important healing work at the moment; as well as my sister Nikila Badua who is dedicated to be at Standing Rock indefinitely ~ you are always in our hearts <3
