How to Help Arrested Indigenous Water Protectors Last Updated on 2018-08-15 14:04:44   For an update on the movement and a chance to deepen your involvement, sign up for a 5 p.m. Thu. Sept. 13 Zoom call.   Since the Water Protector camps went up in 2016, the movement at Standing Rock has been hailed as world-changing, showing us what prayerful resistance to contemporary forms of colonialism, like the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), can look like – and how crucial it is to maintain our commitment to the water and to one another, even as DAPL ultimately got pushed through Indigenous treaty lands.
