Portraits from Standing Rock

The Portraits from Standing Rock exhibition featured photographs by Jen Rosenstein and text by Molly Larkey. They visited Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock, North Dakota, in November 2016, where Molly interviewed organizers and allies who came to stand with the Standing Rock Sioux. Oceti Sakowin Camp was a historical gathering of First Nations and their allies that centered indigenous sovereignty within the larger fight for the environment, decolonization, and social and economic justice. By creating a native-centered community based in ethical and spiritual principals, the camp modeled a platform for organizing against the root causes of white supremacy, extractive and exploitative industry, and other forms of injustice.
