As part of Native News Online’s coverage of the Standing Rock resistance, Native News Online has over 1,500 photos in its library. A native and resident of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Rickert (Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation) will share some of the photographs and the experiences he encountered while covering the resistance at Standing Rock, Washington, D.C. and in protests in Michigan.
“Standing Rock will go down in history as being one of the most important events in Indian Country in contemporary times. The vibrancy of the Standing Rock will remain alive for many years to come because it awoken a new spirit in a new generation of American Indians in the fight for justice for indigenous peoples in America,” says Rickert.
