Tiokasin also speaks with Greg Grey Cloud. (www.wicaagli.org) Greg is a member of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe and Co-Founder of Wica Agli, Native men against domestic violence. Located on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota, Greg teaches culturally specific healthy masculinity to young men and boys on the reservation, working to end violence against women and reduce the violent crime rate. Greg's work has lead him to a national level when he sang a song in the U.S. Capitol Building when the KXL bill failed to pass. Greg's domestic violence work has also taken him to lead the Horse Nation at Standing Rock during the DAPL fight. His message is clear, and simple: "Be a good relative, protect our nations' women at all costs." Greg is featured in Erica’s film, "Wica Agli: To Return a Man.”
