Inspired by the movement emerging out of Standing Rock, Janet MacGillivray Wallace explains the broad significance of the resistance in her interlude.
"Standing Rock cascaded a movement to decolonize. Indigenous people used their bodies to speak for what is essential to everyone. Non-indigenous peoples joined indigenous peoples to take back their outsourced environmentalism from a stymied environmental movement that hasn’t yet slowed the momentum of the warming planet. Elders of other movements made a pilgrimage to the camp to honor today’s living civil rights demonstration."
We will be rolling out the individual "interludes" over the next few months.
