Beyond Standing Rock

On display through Dec 01, 2019 at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture

From early 2016 until February 23, 2017, Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota was home to many individuals who were protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). The protest at Standing Rock Indian Reservation is just one of many instances where corporate and/or government actions were viewed as violations of Native American Treaties, a threat to Native American well-being, and disrespect for the sacredness of Native land. This exhibit focuses heavily on the events leading up to the DAPL construction and the experiences of many who were at Standing Rock during the protest. However, the exhibit will also highlight other examples of similar encroachments and violations of Native American sovereignty, many of which have impacted Native health and sacred lands.

Also on exhibit at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
