Echo Valley Hope, Inc.


We Are All Indigenous

Echo Valley Hope stands with the Standing Rock Sioux as they protect water and human dignity. We have sent an observer to participate as needed and to offer our unity and prayers for peace. 

Please check in with our Facebook page as updates are available, as well as Oceti Sakowin Camp. We urge everyone to become aware of this important moment in our collective awakening.

Here are a few ways that you can help:

Take Action 


We welcome everyone’s participation in raising the voice of peace and promoting like-minded organizations and people at this time. Please see Echo Valley Hope’s pledge Humanity Rising.

We acknowledge the very real possibility of peace and believe that the effort required is a simple one. We believe each and every one of us holds that possibility within us. Our efforts promote communication among people, celebrate diversity, and support our humanity through events and educational gatherings…


Echo Valley Hope recognizes that peace and sustainable living are intertwined.

It is a human need to have peace, and it is a human right to have access to clean water and air, good food and shelter.

We find ways to champion these ideals, to bring people together, to encourage innovative and creative solutions, and to bring hope. We support actions to end misuse of resources and degradation of indigenous peoples’ lands and way of life.

For the past eleven years, we have raised a voice for sustainable living and peace and we are set to continue. Because we are an educational and charitable 501(c)3, your contributions are tax deductible. Monthly donations help keep our efforts going. One-time donations are also greatly appreciated and needed. 100% volunteer efforts and no government or corporate sponsorship: we are dedicated to sustainable change. You can give through our secure PayPal account, or send a check to Echo Valley Hope, E 14604 County Rd. F, Ontario, WI 54651.

Your dollars keep our communications flowing via telephone, websites, social media, travel expenses, support for like-minded organizations, and guest speakers and allows us to continue the programs we are currently engaged in. These include Peace Week Milwaukee, Kickapoo Teen Drop In, The Peace Education Program, free classes in sustainable living, peace gatherings, and our current initiative, Supporting the Standing Rock Sioux and others in their effort to halt the North Dakota Access Pipeline.

Thank you to everyone who supports our effort by volunteering and by financial contribution. Please invite others. Together everything is possible.
Let Kindness Win.

Warm Regards,
Dena Eakles and the Board of Echo Valley Hope
