This is a fundraiser for the standing rock reservation.
Recently there seems to have been a victory there and they are said to be rerouting the dakota access pipeline. But the fight is not over yet and there are still many court costs and medical bills to be dealt with by water protectors who were/are on the front lines. People will continue to stay there in camp until they feel that the water and land is safe ...and they still need our support. <3
