Native Americans Respond to #YESDAPL

Native Americans Respond to #YESDAPL

“This project came to life while I was reading the Morton County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page. The hate and ignorance toward my race is being perpetuated by the actual police! I found that completely unacceptable due to the fact that this is 2016. Native narrative in this situation is very important and I felt that the media was full of biased/smear pieces villianizing the Indigenous (and non as well) water protectors. This is a media/public relations battle being waged against my people, and the public needs to hear our voices in as many mediums as possible. Step away from any platform of priviledge and look into the eyes of an Indigenous water protector.” – JaNae Collins (Dakota/Crow)
