Module 3 Weblog: Post 4

The youth at Standing Rock are shown in this YouTube video. The video highlights how the youth piloted the movement to protest their sacred burial grounds and drinking water from potential contamination caused by the Dakota Access pipeline. ┬áThe video highlights active youth involved in this movement, sharing their stories and experiences on an open platform. The youth council’s goal was to be at this location and pray, not to antagonize the police. I found it very eye-opening to understand the heart of the protest and gain a better understanding about how and why the Indigenous Youth Council fought so hard for this movement. It was interesting to hear their personal stories, outlining how they feel perceived by others and what they want to change.
