December 12, 2016

UNCA Ramsey Library Video Production has recently finished and made available online ‘Three Days in Sacred Stone Camp.’ This video is related to the ongoing protests at the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline’s final stretch under the Missouri River.

The Standing Rock Sioux are protecting the waters of the Missouri River as well as their sacred sites from the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). Gilliam Jackson (Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians), Trey Adcock, Ph.D.(Cherokee Nation) and Juan Sanchez Martinez, Ph.D. (Colombia) traveled to North Dakota to deliver supplies for the Sacred Stone Camp at the junction of the Cannonball and Missouri Rivers. They share their perspectives, photos, and video clips and welcome comments and questions from the public and the community.
