My friend, mentor, brother and partner in activism and film Myron Dewey has passed on. He was in the prime of his life, he was doing amazing incredibly hard vital work. He was a leader and light to all of us. He taught me so much. He was a constant presence in my life as we worked together on our programs the past five years. His loss is devastating. He provided so much for his community and his friends and his relatives. I will be forever his student and am forever changed by all he gave to me. “Let your work speak for you” he told me. “See the world through indigenous eyes” he told the world. There are so many more lessons I’ll relate to everyone soon, but for this moment I can’t stop crying for my friend. I’m angry at the universe and I feel that the planet has been robbed of a great man, a teacher, and someone we all could have learned decades more lessons from. Thank you all to my friends who have called in the past two hours. This news is impossible to understand. Myron- thank you my brother, words can’t describe how I will miss you. I had your words in my ears all day. I will continue to listen to them and hear your voice, your wisdom, your guidance and your prayers. I am thankful for the time that we had in this fight together. Your work will fight on and we will never forget you. +3 400400 56 Comments 106 Shares Like Comment Share

A big loss. His work at Standing Rock (My wife’s rez) helped in part inspire our work in Tacoma against LNG and the live stream-based documentary we published. Myron was universally liked in the community and NDN country has lost an important voice and protector.Debra Bonneau wrote

I felt anger race through me as well when I heard the news this evening along with a watershed of tears. I will miss our long phone conversations and check-ins. I learned so much from him. Thank you for putting into words what I cannot express at the moment. His vision lives on in all of us.Donna M Tadeyeske wrote
I remember speaking with him during standing rock protest and When they blocked the bridge I called the police department and questioned why and how they could do that!! I recorded the conversation and shared it with him!! He said I did good with the questions I addressed with them, asking if we could cross and they said if we went off the bridge it’s private property and would be arrested I said can we be catapulted over the barriers lol and they said no we will be arrested!!
A warrior I will never forget!!Karen Enzie-Craig wrote
