Nantinki Young has fed almost 3000 people a day to support the protest against the Dakota pipeline that would destroy many Native American lands. A member of the Rosebud Sioux tribe, Young drove 2,100 miles to join the protests and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.

“It’s not our tribe, I’m not from here, but we’re all Native Americans and we stand together."

Located just west of the Sacred Stone Camp is the Sicangu Lakota Wicoti (Burnt Thigh Camp) in Standing Rock. Across the river are camps of the Oceti Sakowin and tribes from throughout the continent.

On the morning of August 20th, people of Sicangu Lakota Wicoti and other camps placed their canoes onto the water for the Mni Wiconi Canoe Journey. Paddling from Inyan Ki Wakagapi to Mnisose, Missouri, they would face the Dakota Access Pipeline in order to protect water for future generations. Upon return, women of Sicangu Lakota Wicoti sang the canoes in.

Below, standing at the bank of Inyan Ki Wakagapi, Cannon Ball River, members of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe held the flag high in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in putting an end to the Dakota Access Pipeline. Students of Sinte Gleska University, grandfathers, grandmothers, sons, and daughters are continuously traveling back and forth to this peaceful setting in support of their relatives.
