Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Releases Documentary

In the midst of federal government deliberations over the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Standing Rock Sioux tribe has released a short film titled "Mni Wiconi: The Stand at Standing Rock," a new, eight-minute film exploring the nearly eight-month battle to stop construction of the pipeline on sacred tribal lands.

"This film tells the story of our prayerful and peaceful demonstrations by water protectors that have motivated thousands of tribal members and non-Native people around the world to take a stand," said the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s Chairman, Dave Archambault II in a release. "In it, you hear the voices of people fighting for their lives, because water is life."
