Water is Life: Standing Rock and Beyond – with Joseph Medicine Robe

What has been taking place at Standing Rock, North Dakota, over the past 10 months is an inspiration and a wake-up call that has brought millions of people across the United States and the world to stand in solidarity with Standing Rock, including over 400 Indigenous Nations worldwide, thousands of Interfaith Clergy, teachers, farmers, veterans, Resolutions from numerous City Councils across the US, and people from all walks of life.

In this Forum, Joseph Medicine Robe will expand on and give a larger context from issues that have been raised by the actions at Standing Rock / the Dakota Access Pipeline. Please join us for this rare opportunity to look at the connections and to more deeply understand what is taking place in our society.   Preceding his presentation, Joseph will offer a traditional Lakota prayer song on the Native flute, to set the tone and establish our prayer.
