“Water Is Life: Standing with Standing Rock”

Friday, May 19, 2017 - 12:30 to 18:30
Conference: “Water Is Life: Standing with Standing Rock”

Events at Standing Rock from April 2016 to February 2017 altered the media landscape, created new ways to protect the water and land, and launched a resurgence of indigenous-centered leadership. Join co-founders of the year-long encampment of Water Protectors at Standing Rock, organizers of non-violent direct actions opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline, and indigenous media makers to celebrate and discuss this unprecedented gathering and its relevance to our shared future. Panel discussions will focus on “Protecting the Land and the Water,” “Media,” and “Decolonization and Indigenous-Centered Leadership.” This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required, and seating is available on on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, visit http://www.carseywolf.ucsb.edu/waterislife

Water is Life is presented by the Carsey-Wolf Center, the American Indian & Indigenous Collective, the American Indian Student Association, the Coastal Band of the Chumash Na.
