Standing Rock – The Syllabus and Resources

To honor some of what I witnessed in my too-short time at Standing Rock, I want to share some important resources on the movement.

  • The StandingRockSyllabus offers a thorough compilation of historical and contemporary materials.
  • Also, Cultural Anthropology has an incredible series on Standing Rock, #NoDAPL, and Mni Wiconi
  • A comprehensive list of resources can be found on Timnick Chair in the Humanities and Associate Professor of Philosophy and Community Sustainability at Michigan State University, Kyle Powys Whyte’s academia.edu page here
  • Lastly, the Zinn Education project has some great teaching ideas!

As photography is very strictly, and rightfully, regulated, this is the only photo I have of Oceti Sakowin (I have many of direct actions). What I witnessed in all the camps was an incredibly organized, non centralized movement of people refusing spiritual surrender, insisting on prayer, survival, and the protection of the water for future generations. It was an honor and a privilege, the memory of which I will always carry with me, in the water in my body.                                                             #NoDAPL #MniWiconi #WaterisLife
