The image I chose for week 9’s topic for Standing Rock and #NoDAPL describes how the different interpretation of the meaning “water is life”. Before discussing this topic in class, the meaning of water to me is an essential necessity for life (without it we die and everything around us needs water in order to survive). But after the discussion in…[Read more]
The following image was taken by Richard Bluecloud Castaneda, where he watched “unarmed, peaceful Water Protectors at Standing Rock were forcibly repelled with tear gas, pepper spray and rubber bullets” (Leonard 2018). This image has burned in my brain for any instance in which we attempt to analyze and discuss the protests against the Dakota…[Read more]
Sharice Davis is a House of Rep. from Kansas, known for being the first openly queer Native American women in Congress. I included her in this photo segment because protests and activism does generate change, but in our current society, what will truly move mountains is policy. For Sharice to grapple with her positionally and put herself in a…[Read more]
This image is of #NoDAPL water protectors with an illuminated sign that reads “PROTECTORS” with each person in the photo raising their fists in solidarity. The sign makes explicitly clear that these people are water protectors, not protesters. Protesting is a form of protecting the community, but it’s not seen that way by the mainstream media. “…[Read more]
For this week’s photo share, I wanted to share a picture about #NODAPL based on our week’s discussion in class, found here: https://mashable.com/2016/12/07/standing-rock-nodapl-youth/#WkGvKvDrDqqJ.
What I found most intriguing is the belief of mni wiconi, the belief that water is life and should therefore be granted similar rights as to not…[Read more]
This week I would like to share a video I found named Stand Up/ Stand N Rock #NoDAPL by Taboo. I feel the song fits perfectly with this week’s theme since it talks about how water is life and the injustices that were done to Native Americans and their lands. One has to keep in mind how over the course of time lands have been taken from their rig…[Read more]
This weeks conversations on Water being life and indigenous activism reminded me of Berta Cáceres, and Honduran activist. This ties into the conversation because her struggle was with the construction of a dam in Honduras that displaces indigenous folk via the construction of this megaproject. Berta was of indigenous background and of Lenca…[Read more]
Having studied the #NoDAPL movement in class this week, the part which stuck out to me the most was the concept of #NoDAPL as a feminist struggle. For many Native American and First Nations women, the personal cost of settler colonialism and capitalist accumulation has been disproportionately high in comparison to others from their nations.…[Read more]
