On March 10th, 2017 The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, along with indigenous groups from around the world, marched from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers headquarters to Trump International Hotel where they erected a teepee and performed ceremonies before marching on to the White House.
Thousands of Native Nations and supporters, led by the @standingrock tribe, rose together as a show of solidarity against a federal government that had long pushed aside tribal concerns on a range of environmental, economic, and social issues.
I’m honored to have marched D.C with Standing Rock and other natives tribes across this country. DAPL has been confirmed and native tribes needs, rights and treaties have been ignored- breaking environmental justice laws and treaty rights. The Standing Rock movement is bigger than one tribe. These indigenous tribes aren’t asking for anything more than clean water and respect for their homelands and treaties- for themselves, their communities and for ALL Americans throughout this country and generations to come.
The resistance is here, it’s alive and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Taking part in the movement has reminded me so much of all the men and women who came before me that allowed us to progress and fight the oppression that once existed, and sadly still exists. It’s not easy speaking out; it’s tiring, scary, sad and at times overwhelming but the power of LOVE wins. It always wins. 🏽 #dapl#takethemeeting#consentnotconsultation#nativenationsrise#resist#whereisthelove

There was a time in the not-so-distant past when young native children were ripped away from their families and forced to attend boarding schools with the purpose of disenfranchising them from their culture. It wasn't even until the Freedom of Religion Act in the 70s that Native American people could even have the freedom to practice their spirituality. •
But today is a new day. And yesterday was #nativenationsrise, where over 5,000 Native Nations and allies marched direct to the capital to stand up for their rights, for the protection of #motherearth, and for #consentnotconsultation for environmentally devastating projects like #dapl and #kxl. @undocumedia@reclaimyourpower
We are all one. We are all stewards of this earth. We all need clean water to drink. We all need clean air to breathe. Our future deserves a safe and healthy place to live. Climate change is real, it is human induced, and it can be halted if we choose to fight. Feelings of resistance at yesterday's march were strong (and we shut down a major road during rush hour). This movement is so much bigger than the climate or environment, it's giving a voice to Native American communities, it's making history. #MniWiconi#WaterISlife#noDAPL#TakeTheMeeting#ConsentNotConsultation#NativeNationsRise#denvercanyounot : Amanda Arlington
