MANISTEE, Mich. — The 26th Annual 2019 Anishinaabe Family Language & Culture Camp is hosting the Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement exhibition that was created from photographs taken by Native News Online during the American Indian resistance to stop the Dakota Access pipeline during the course of several months. The exhibition is on display at the Little River Casino Resort, 2700 Orchard Hwy, Manistee, Michigan 49660.
The 26th Annual 2019 Anishinaabe Family Language & Culture Camp. sponsored by the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians, begins Friday, July 26 and ends on Sunday, July 28, 2019. It is free and open to the public.
Standing Rock became synonymous with the largest public gathering of American Indians in over a century. During the Standing Rock resistance, Native News Online published over 100 articles about the events at Standing Rock. Throughout this period, Native News Online took over 1,500 high-resolution photographs at Standing Rock, Washington, D.C. and local protests in Michigan.

Understanding the importance of preserving the monumental period in contemporary American Indian history, the Kutsche Office of Local History at Grand Valley State University teamed with Native News Online to develop the Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement exhibition that include 22 boards that contain 52 photographs with accompanying narrative.
“The exhibition was created to capture the essence of the Standing Rock resistance so that viewers may gain cultural exchange and come to understand the importance of American Indian issues in the context of social justice,” comments Levi Rickert (Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation), publisher and editor of Native News Online. “Standing Rock was really a movement that continues today with resistance by American Indians to oil pipelines that endanger communities in various places around the country.”
Rickert will present at the language camp on Friday and Saturday at 1:15 p.m.
The exhibition is on display until Sunday, July 28, 2019. Funding for the Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement exhibition at the language camp was made possible by the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians and the Little River Casino Resort.
