The Defend Ohi:yo’ group recently held a weekend retreat at Willow Bay Campround in Bradford, PA in the Allegheny National forest from September 25th-27th, 2020. The event was a success. They held discussions on the Northern Access Pipeline, visited Chief Cornplanter’s grave, enjoyed two films – Denying Access: NoDAPL to NoNAPL and Invisible Hand, and participated in many other environmental activities while surround by the colorful beauty this time of year offers.

Defend Ohi:yo’ members, participants and allies would like to thank Gakwi:yo:h Farms for their wholesome, natural foods that made the weekend retreat so successful. The potatoes and squash added to the substantial luncheon; the cherry tomatoes made a healthy snack choice; the maple syrup was a breakfast treat. We:so’ nya:wëh!
