Help us leave a legacy on our native land
We are building a wind farm to provide clean energy to the people of Standing Rock for generations into the future — and we need your support.
The Anpetu Wi wind farm needs your support
Anpetu Wi (“morning light”) will be the single largest revenue source for Standing Rock, which we plan to reinvest into future projects and Standing Rock as a whole. We need your support to ensure this wind farm remains owned and operated by the people of Standing Rock for generations to come.
Please share and support.
$321,670.78 raised toward our goal
Funding for Anpetu Wi will be used to complete pre-development studies, operationalize the SAGE Development Authority management organization, and prepare for full project development in order to make the wind farm a reality for Standing Rock, as a critical step toward self-determination, now and into the future.
The establishment of reservations in some of the most desolate locations in the U.S., compounded by broken treaty after broken treaty, has made it so that many of the people on Standing Rock endure the effects of forced government dependency for basic human needs. We experience the hardship of a 70% unemployment rate and a 40% poverty rate.
In the aftermath of our fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline (#NoDAPL), we renewed and deepened our commitment to self-determination through institution building and renewable energy development . This effort, which had been a priority for the Tribe for many years, is now being realized through the creation of the SAGE Development Authority. In this effort, we will justly transition from fossil fuel dependence and exploitation to self-determination and sustainability.
Anpetu Wi will be the single largest revenue source for Standing Rock, estimated to nearly double (2x) our community’s annual revenue — on its own. And we plan to devote these funds to further economic development, reinvesting them into future SAGE projects and Standing Rock as a whole.
We are a federally chartered organization owned in full and in proud partnership with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
