Please join us for a reception featuring a talk by Levi Rickert, Publisher and Editor or Native News Online as he discuses his experience covering Standing Rock.
During the recent Standing Rock resistance to stop the Dakota Access oil pipeline, American Indian journalist, Levi Rickert, knew the largest American Indian movement since the 1973 Wounded Knee was unfolding. Rickert, the publisher and editor of Native News Online, covered the emergence of the movement from Standing Rock, Washington, D.C. to the steps of Michigan’s capitol. The results of his photo-journalist work yielded over 1,500 photographs that capture the intensity of the movement. Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement provides three dozen photographs that give a glimpse of the struggle for indigenous water rights and tribal sovereignty.
