Experiencing Interruptions?

Standing with Standing Rock

As the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) snaked across Sioux lands disturbing sacred sites, polluting Mother Earth and disregarding human rights, only a small band of Water Protectors stood in it’s way. Yet beyond the very real horrors on the front-lines there were still smiles and laughter and prayer which are more powerful than any corrupt politician, snarling policeman, or barking attack dogs.

‘Standing with Standing Rock’ goes inside camp to meet the brave men and women warriors of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe who are the heart and soul of the movement. Mni wiconi! (Water is Life!)
