Metro Phoenix Artists Join March Supporting Standing Rock Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) Protestors

Metro Phoenix Artists Join March Supporting Standing Rock Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) Protestors

When people gathered at Steele Indian School Park on Saturday morning, November 26, for a walk to support Standing Rock protesters opposed to the North Dakota Pipeline, several local artists were among them — including Angela Ellsworth, Liliana Gomez, and Adriene Jenik. Ellsworth co-founded the Museum of Walking with fellow artist Steven Yazzie, and shared news of Saturday's march via the museum's Facebook page. It's just the latest metro Phoenix march designed to raise awareness about the pipeline, which is slated to run underneath the Missouri River, a significant source of water for the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. After making signs, and spending time in song and prayer, the group began its march to Talking Stick Resort Arena, where several participants shared their experiences with the Standing Rock protests and affirmed their solidarity with those working to protect the water at the heart of the dispute. Here's a look back at the march, and the messages of those supporting the cause. All photos by Lynn Trimble.
