Wicahpiluta Candelaria, a Rumsen Ohlone cultural presenter, sang and gave the opening prayer.

Speakers included Pennie Opal Plant, Norman "Wounded Knee" DeOcampo, and Paul Flores, who all picked up on the theme of "water" and its relation to The Keystone XL pipeline.

Following the round dances, community members joined together for a singing of the American Indian Movement anthem.

Shortly after the Idle No More event, bay area activists gathered in front of the San Francisco Federal Building for nonviolent direct action training in preparation for a yet to be announced action to stop the Keystone XL pipeline.
