Standing Rock: Art and Solidarity

May 20, 2017 - February 18, 2018

In April 2016, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota launched a large public campaign to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Over subsequent months, an unprecedented movement developed among allies from hundreds of other Indigenous nations as well as large numbers of non-Native activists, organized around the Dakota/Lakota principle “Mni Wiconi,” translated as “Water is life.” Artists joined in this effort, producing works that connected this issue to broader questions of resource use, climate change, and tribal sovereignty.
