AKICITA’s impact campaign is designed to bring the story of this instrumental Indigenous uprising as “oral history,” truth-telling in the midst of fake news, and a tool for movement and awareness building, as well as an affirmation of the power of the people to band together to fight for their legal rights to their ancestral land, clean water and self-determination. The campaign will also reveal how powerful visual media can be used as a weapon to counter lies, inaccuracies and misinformation perpetuated by the news media, militarized forces and others wielding power.
AKICITA: The Battle of Standing Rock is fiscally sponsored by The Redford Center. Your contribution will directly support the work of AKICITA, and will help education others on environmental justice and cause.
