Beyond Standing Rock at The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture is pleased to present its latest exhibit opening February 23rd and running until October 27, 2019.
Beyond Standing Rock is a look at one of the most wide-spread grassroots movements in recent history.
From early 2016 to early 2017, the Sioux Nation (Očhéthi Šakówiŋ) of Standing Rock Reservation protested corporate abuses of Native sovereignty and welfare.
The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) planned construction through Standing Rock reservation, violating the 1851 Fort Laramie treaty and compromising the Sioux Nation’s access to clean water.
As the movement grew, more than one hundred Native nations and allies gathered together to preserve the land through peaceful protest.
The protest gained international attention through images, videos, and posters – many of which are in the exhibit as well as art inspired by the protest.
