Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement
This exhibit is a culmination of several months of coverage by Native News Online of the 2016-2017 Standing Rock resistance to the Dakota Access pipeline. Standing Rock became synonymous with the largest public gathering of American Indians in over a century. During the Standing Rock resistance, Native News Online published over 100 articles about the events at Standing Rock. Throughout this period, Native News Online took over 1500 photographs at Standing Rock, Washington, D.C., and local protests in Michigan. Understanding the importance of preserving the monumental period in contemporary American Indian history, the Kutshce Office of Local History has teamed with Native News Online to develop the Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement exhibition that include photographs with accompanying text. The intention was to create an exhibit of photographs that capture exchange and come to understand the importance of American Indian issues in the context of social justice.
