A Haudenosaunee Women’s Dance in support of the Standing Rock Sioux.
On August 24, 2016, hundreds of supporters joined the Standing Rock Sioux as they pressed their suit against the U.S. Federal Government Army Corps of Engineers for allowing construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline across sacred land and in violation of the EPA’s recommendation. First Nations, Native American, and Indigenous groups from across North America joined to voice their support. So did non-Indigenous allies. The Haudenosaunee (also sometimes called Iroquois) showed their support through song and dance to declare that “Mni Wiconi” (Lakota for “water is life”). https://nodaplsolidarity.org/
