Indigenous Resistance Against Oil Pipelines During a Pandemic
Wednesday, June 3rd, 5 PM EDT
Water Protectors at Standing Rock, drawing from long traditions of resistance, used Indigenous sovereignty and mutual aid networks based on kinship as bulwarks against oil pipelines, state violence, and environmental colonialism.

Join Nick Estes and Kim Tallbear for a virtual teach-in on what lessons today’s activists can learn from these traditions of resistance.
