More Information

During the movement of resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Defenders of the Water School was formed to serve as a home education resource for families residing at the camp. The school was run by volunteers and funded completely by donations. Workshops were often offered by elders, students, artists, and others who wanted to share their knowledge with the young water protectors. Hear firsthand from traditional Lakota artist, Steve Tamayo, about his work at the school and experiences on the front lines at Standing Rock.
